If you want to understand

If you want to understand who controls a society take a survey of who gives the most finacial support to the artists. Are there anymore individual arts patrons like Countess Nica de Koenigswarter? Or are most of today’s patrons corporations? I’d say the latter. This cool film directed by Elliott merges live action with motion graphics, typography and animation. Four beat boxers are featured in the clip: Faith sfx, Koobs, Lianhart, and Oracle, each representing Paris, Berlin, London and New York, creating a mini, multi-layered hip hop opera.


Soul In Code [SIC]

Soul In Code [SIC] is a blog written with the belief that change is the fundamental nature of reality. Making use of the interactive and networked nature of the Internet, entries explore perception and situation as active process. My cup of tea. Stay tuned for the full release of the [SIC] site.


Martin Luther’s second album

Category : Links · No Comments · by June 1, 2004

Martin Luther’s second album: Rebel Soul Music is being released this summer. I’ve had the opportunity to hear a preview, and its fire. The production, the musicianship, the vocals, the mastering, the subject matter runs from pre/present/post-black, star child political on through to we f**king at the end of the night, sweet visceral. Saturate yourself. Check your boy on Oprah poised as the new meditation guru – Tupak Chopra.
