BXXX – Lies (Video Premiere)

January 7, 2013 Tim Gauthier Music, Video Tags:


We’d like to invite you all to watch our latest video premiere, Lies by BXXX.  BXXX (pronounced Bronx) is an electronic rock project completely devoted to providing musical scores for films about the nightlife. BXXX works with various collaborators to provide the direction for each soundtrack. BXXX explains his vision behind his video,

“The ‘Lies’ video came about because I was looking online to see how well a GOPRO camera could shoot at night, and I found almost no footage so I decided to do my own “nighttime tests” video by exploring crazy moments in the New York party scene exclusively through the eyes of a  camera which is almost exclusively used for extreme sports. The ending barfing montage is an homage to William Peter Blatty.”

This two minute video takes it up a notch, taking you into the night life of various party girls in clubs, taxis, subways, on poles, and other locations. However we do warn you that this video may contain inappropriate material for some viewers so we urge you all to watch at your own risk.

 

 

 

Controlling Sound With Your Face (And Vice Versa)

January 5, 2013 Tim Gauthier Lifestyle, Music, Video Tags: , , ,

Daito Manabe uses electrical impulses as an artistic medium, creating music through reactions of the human nervous and muscular systems.

“Can you smile without emotion?”

That’s what Daito Manabe asks in the video above. It’s the sort of question many of his digital art projects begin with, leading him to experiment with myoelectric sensors to turn people’s faces into human drum machine. A similar endeavor recently saw him visualizing FaltyDL’s music using jerky, electrified movements of the human body.

Taking the role of programmer, designer, DJ, VJ, and composer on each of his projects, Manabe is able to realize scenarios that change our perception of how our bodies interact with technology. Whereas most electronic musicians control sound with their hands, Manabe uses the electrical impulses of his facial muscles. Most of us just walk in sneakers, but Manabe fitted various pairs of Nikes with sensors that trigger and manipulate sound. DJs have long dreamed of having a third arm to mix and scratch with, and Manabe has already traversed this possibility.

While a lot of digital art prides itself on seamlessness, hiding the wire and code guts of what makes each piece tick, Manabe’s work embraces the functional aesthetic of these tools, focusing his creative energy on conveying a thought-provoking performance. Sitting on stage and altering sound with various facial expressions has this effect without fail.

You can check out Manabe and Perfume choreographer MIKIKO’s projection-mapped video for Nosaj Thing’s “Eclipse/Blue” below. Below that, see some stills from Manabe’s various projects.

In celebration of the signing, VIBE will feature the world premiere for Will Brennan’s Dim Mak debut mixtape “MORE PERFECT UNION”.

The first from the mixtape, “All Of The Pretty Lights” breezes in with Rihanna’s hook and Pretty Lights’ beat butchering, and then, Brennan comes in punching with his natural knack for rhymes. “Going Through Under The Sheets” samples Wales singer Ellie Goulding’s electropop single, while Brennan flutters in with a deftly timed flow. Brennan delivers a short narrative on top of a genre-bending take of Warwicks “I Say A Little Prayer For You”, chopped by Zeds Dead. Bravados are not missing from the mixtape, “Remember To Fall In Love” and “Get By With The Golden Touch”, pull in Brennan’s strong suit for fearless flows.

Will Brennan embodies the charisma, versatility and flow-skill to bring a new kind of personality to the rap game. Brennan has supported rap titans like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, B.O.B., Yela- Wolf, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Dom Kennedy and Wale. Dim Mak will be releasing Brennan’s “PRODIGAL SON” with additional remixes early 2013.
