Mind Blown?

This film brings a totally new perspective to movement as a simple  hoola hoop contrasts straight line with circles around a dancer.  The all female creative team worked diligently frame by frame to connect the lines with the hoop and their attention to detail is exquisitely pleasing to the eye. This video has won awards all over the world including the PEARL winner-film/ Pool-festival, Berlin. Top ten in Cinema Perpetuum Mobile Film Festival, ANIMA 2013 in Argentina, Baixada Animada in Brazil, Cut Out Fest and the Female in Film Industry  in Mexico.

ANNOUNCEMENT – Kenna’s ‘Land 2 Air Chronicles II: Imitation Is Suicide’ dropping on September 3, 2013

1500 1500 Tim Gauthier

Land 2 Air Chronicles II is the second part of Kenna’s three EP series based on the Emerson essay Self-Reliance. On this second installment, Imitation is Suicide, Kenna is stating the clear influences in his work to help define a musical compass while giving credit where credit is due.

Kenna stated, “Music icons like David Byrne and Rick James inspired Imitation is Suicide. I think posing as an ‘original’ without acknowledging your influences is like killing yourself. The chapters and art of this EP speak to those influences all while hopefully dancing between sonics and genres.”

Imitation Is Suicide (chapter one of three) Produced by Chad Hugo and Kenna will be released on September 3, 2013. You can pre-order the EP on iTunes HERE.

… To begin with, Alec Empire has a history with Sony — he’d sued them for copyright infringement after another song was included in a Sony ad without permission, and he settled, still feeling ripped off. Part of his dissatisfaction was hearing his music in a commercial at all.

Now Sony was back in Empire’s life — and asking this time. Empire knew at once what he wanted to do.

“I was actually on the phone and had to slow down my pulse and breathe… so the excitement wouldn’t be audible in my voice.”

Dan Sena – “Candy Floss Art Capitalist” EP
Release Date: July 26th, 2011
 
Dan Sena has devoted his life to music. From the age of 6 when he started playing piano, to the countless bands he’s headed from his teen years until the present, Dan has pushed his own musical legacy forward. In fact, one of those bands, Stickfigurecarousel, became the catalyst for Dim Mak Records. Steve Aoki and Dan have been friends since 1994 and it was their mutual passion for music that drove them. And it was Steve who encouraged Dan a few years ago, to expand his musical palate into the electronic world. Dan Sena has been busy the last few years DJing nationally and now producing remixes for the likes of Datarock, N.A.S.A, The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Sonny Moore, Scanners. The list just keeps growing with no end in sight.

Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980

Tim Gauthier



Pacific Standard Time is a collaboration of more than fifty cultural institutions across Southern California, which are coming together for six months beginning October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the Los Angeles art scene and how it became a major new force in the art world. Each institution will make its own contribution to this grand-scale story of artistic innovation and social change, told through a multitude of simultaneous exhibitions and programs. Exploring and celebrating the significance of the crucial post-World War II years and beyond, Pacific Standard Time encompasses developments from modernist architecture and design to multi-media installations; from L.A. Pop to post-minimalism; from the films of the African-American L.A. Rebellion to the feminist happenings of the Woman’s Building; from ceramics to Chicano performance art, and from Japanese-American design to the pioneering work of artists’ collectives. Initiated through $10 million in grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time involves cultural institutions of every size and character across Southern California, from Greater Los Angeles to San Diego and Santa Barbara to Palm Springs.
