Just found an awesome blog! If paintings could text
Director Stefan Schwietert talks about his new film “Balkan Melodie” (Interview in German). “Balkan melodie” tells the story of the Swiss folk-music collector Marcel Celliers who traveled in Bulgaria and Romania during the communism and made the folk music of these countries popular in the West. What the people in the West (and nowadays also on the Balkans) didn’t now is the role that the communist state played in creating a legend around the folk-songs and used them as a tool for its purposes.
A musical documentary I definitely can’t wait to see!

Two computers playing rock-paper-scissors. Each has its own random algorithm running, choosing one of the three possible items. Connected by an ethernet cable, each computer plays its hand — the winning pc gets a point.” weAREmedienkuenstler

It gives me a touch of nostalgia for my homeland…
Just found this artistic duo: artist Nobuyuki Hanabusa and dancer Katsumi Sakakura, or Kagemu. This video shows (a part of, I guess) their show Black Sun, where they combine motion graphics and modern dance, inspired by Japanese martial arts. The video begins with Sakakura interacting with abstract digital figures, breaking digitally the wall / screen behind him and fighting with his own shadow, all with energetic and strong music. Enjoy (or for more videos, check on YouTube).
For more works by Hanabusa (and Kagemu) you can visit Hanabusa’s website hana-busa.jp (mainly in Japanese).
