I was looking for Pop, Königsforst and Zauberberg by Gas aka Wolfgang Voigt for quite some time – until today. I finally managed to find and acquire all three masterpieces. Haha, now I only need an extra-soft velvet pillow for them to rest on.
Somebody wrote about Pop:
[…]very subtle and fragile ambient, sparkling nature, endlessly looping and gently shifting, making it very quietening, even to the point it would trance you into total detachment.
I just read that Wim Mertens released a DVD titled What you see is what you hear. I think this may be the first time Wim Mertens has released a live video. I just ordered it and look forward to seeing Wim Mertens in concert for the first time.
Wim Mertens is a Belgian composer who became quite well known and popular with compositions like Struggle for Pleasure, Close Cover and Maximizing the Audience.
Powers of Ten
I came across a film by Steve Johns who combined the classic footage of Charles and Ray Eames’ Powers of Ten with music by Mat Jarvis also known as Gas of the legendary em:t-collection. See also Charles & Ray Eames and Microscopics.
Happy Halloween 2006
Last year I had to skip Halloween and my carving tradition because we were in Germany during that time. I decided two make up for this and carve a few more this time. After some initial troubles trying to come up with an idea I finally remembered a great scene: the face that flashes in a dream sequence for just a split second in the original Exorcist.
This gave birth to my idea to create a pumpkin series of classic horror movie moments.
