Kodak to Graph

Yesterday I was skipping through some new music and came across a musician called „Kodak to Graph“. Since I haven‘t posted any new music I discovered (and it’s not that I haven‘t discovered any new music lately, rather I haven‘t posted anything) I would like to share a particular song called „He/Basement“ that somehow struck me. Considering the mood this song conveys I think it perfectly fits to the idea of the train video clip I shared not long ago. The song is floating along keeping a certain melancholy that’s somehow not giving a depressed feeling. Well ok the train clip is different because it creates a feeling of restlessness in a more bustling way though being reduced to mere shapes in black and white. This song is obviously a lot more „laid-back“ but feels similar to me. I think it creates the kind of feeling when you‘re on the road for too long and simply don‘t care anymore. It might be uncomfortable, it might tiring but yet it doesn‘t matter because you somehow feel good at it. I suppose sometimes it’s just nice not to reach a destination but rather keep moving.

I almost forgot to mention that the Kodak to Graphs EP Visio‘l is free to download or at Bad Panda Records.

Pigeons

As I‘m cleaning up my hard drives in order to finally trying to systemize all my files I stumble across more and more nice video footage that I recorded a while back. Unfortunately I have forgotten about most of it but am always happy to find it again. The clip below is a set of several shots from pigeons – not the most interesting animals on our planet but yet nice to watch. I like it in combination with the music, a song by Babylon Circus.

trains in winter time

I spent a reasonable time on trains lately and most of the time had my camera with me. Of course I could have slept or read or whatever but most often I was staring out the window fascinated by the winter scenery that was passing by. I don‘t know if I should say „unfortunately“ but in Bolzano we mostly have sun and blue skies. The ski resorts are suffering a bit but I quite like the sun. It somehow makes you happy once you cross the Brennero and suddenly the weather changes from grey and snowy austrian weather to sunny „italian“ weather. But anyway I made this short video coming back from Munich two days ago. It’s basically three short clips in overlay mapped to the music – a song by Lali Puna called „Scary World Theory“. It’s a first try again (I keep forgetting things if I‘m not constantly doing videos and editing them) and at some points it definitely would need some fine-tuning. Other than that I‘m quite happy with the result. I hope you like it, too.
