This year's video, while keeping in line with the concept behind this presentation of this video-artist festival (every contributor's name is listed in the film) is much more peaceful than the 2011 one (whose sound was also done by Ben Boysen), displaying both another aspect of this festival's filmmakers' interest and another panel of this musician's talent.
Ad Noiseam is happy to announce today the forthcoming release of the magnificent album "Gravity" by Ben Lukas Boysen, the musician otherwise known as Hecq. This album, bearing the catalog number adn168, will be released on LP, CD and as digital files on June 17th, 2013. You can already pre-order your copies (and therefore get a rebate) here for the vinyl, there for the CD, and here for the files.
The first album by Ben Lukas Boysen, "Gravity" is a deeply personal work in which this highly-praised producer sheds the artifacts of electronic music to compose a solemn and touching album of beauty and depths. Melancholic piano lines, warm analogue sound, tender drums: "Gravity" is only as sad as you want it to be, for it is first a solitary and introvert journey through heights and emotions. Much more than a new beginning: a revealing.
This video, which was already hinted in both "Jasmine" trailers (1, 2) has been a long time in the making for reasons which are quite obvious once you watch it. it was filmed on location in Paris, directed by Niveau Zero and Thibault Gleize, with impressive 3D effects by Mihai Grecu.
Now that Fausten's massive debut album (adn167) is out and available (on EP+CD, CD and digital files), here comes the first video for one of these tracks. Directed by Fausten themselves (a.k.a. Monster-X and Stormfield), it should give you a better idea of the kind of nightmare their music might induce.
This is definiely not safe for work, though, you've been warned.
Contrary to Igorrr's previous t-shirts, the new one incorporate elements from the "Hallelujah" album, printed in shiny gold ink on black fabric. The hoodies up the ante further by having the Igorrr logo on the front and "Hallelujah"'s procession on the back.
Ad Noiseam t-shirt week, day 2 of 4: we keep on making new shirts available today. After the Underhill ones yesterday, it is Enduser who is getting some fresh apparel with the re-print of the classic "I Eat Beats For Breakfast" tees.
These shirts had long been discontinued and were just re-printed. This time around, the design is printed on red on black fabric, and it's all (as has been the case for some years now) on fair-trade, organic cotton.
