FUJI (不死) from Joanie Lemercier on Vimeo.

“Fuji” is part of Lemercier‘s ongoing artwork series on volcanoes. It combines a large scale hand drawn landscape depicting the Fujiyama,
augmented by a layer of projected light. The abstract narratives are inspired by the legend of Kaguya Hime, a folk-tale from the 10th-century
and a key element in Japanese culture. It gives an imaginary and poetic vision of this story in an immersive environment.

Masayoshi Fujita – love the fact erased tapes make the album Apologues available as a 24bit master .WAV (but like most digital releases I wish they included more artwork than just the front cover – no doubt they have it all in digital form already, so why not?)


’Nespole’ is taken from the forthcoming album by Floating Point, ‘Elaenia’, released on 6th November 2015

Seeing music

Jarbas Agnelli: “This is the first test for my big Birds on the Wires Project, an expansion of the original Birds on the Wires video (vimeo.com/agnelli/birds) I did some years ago. For a long time, I thought about how to continue and expand the original idea. The musical translation of random patterns of nature or mankind. Since everything moves (from galaxies to atoms) and every moving pattern can be read as numbers or notes, then everything contains music. When we cross this with the human spirit, and combine those patterns in a pleasant way, we have the chance to transform them in art. That’s the idea behind this project. On this first test, I used cars on a New York freeway, and choose small loops from several minutes of footage, picking special moments when the elements can be read as intersting musical phrases. No speed changes. No effects whatsoever. Just plain trial and error. Different from the original Birds on the Wires video, I will not add my own arrangement over the captured pattern. The arrangement will come from the patterns themselves. Several ones, layered and combined, with no interference, but the curation process.”

▶ “I often make decisions from a gut feeling. This has been the more successful path in business, rather than engaging in heavy market analysis that often looks backwards. I think it’s necessary to have a feeling of where things will go. Then you can create something new….” – fascinating tour of the Zeiss factory and interview with Dr. Winfried Scherle, ZEISS Executive VP…
“I believe it’s advantageous for the artist to have a really good lens and then make modifications to reduce some of the perfections by modifications. It never can work the other way around. You can’t take an inferior lens and add a filter to make it perfect.”
