After the 3 rüts vinyl mini compilations, comes the first meakusma DVD, compiled together with the Ampoule collective from Scotland.
True to the collective’s spirit, it functions as a mini-compendium of established artists and debutants of whom many have already been featured on the vinyl releases. 23 tracks by Move D & Benjamin Brunn, Kate Simko, Pub, Subjex, Terrence Dixon, Herrmutt Lobby, Roger 23, Kinora Viewer, Roebin de Freitas, Peter Van Hoesen, Immer.Chic, Trifonic, Rony & Suzy get a visual interpretation by, amongst others, man vs magnet, Chris Parks, Defasten, Scott Pagano, Humanstudio, Darren Culley, Visual Kitchen, Kris Clijsters, Les agents Myop, Institut Götze, ego, miH, Ewo, Dirk Ignoul.
The visual contributions range in style from more straightforward digital visual design to cut-up pieces to short movies, whilst still having a distinctly understated feel. Trying to establish networks between musicians and visual artists, the results are often subtly surprising.
In addition to the music videos you’ll find 5 short films and as bonus you can drag & drop all tracks as wav-files to your hard drive.
More info and individual snippets can be found in the release section of www.meakusma.org.
Jay Taylor is a full time, freelance illustrator who graduated from university with a BA(hons) degree in illustration in 2005. Since then he has gone on to work for a number of clients internationally in the editorial, advertising, new media and music industries. With social issues playing a big part in his ideals, Jay’s style plays on life’s little imperfections and is a big fan of the “Happy accident”. The majority of Jay’s work is made by hand, with only simple composition and colour changes being altered in the latter stages by computer.
New Yorker Cynthia Drescher – well, I say New Yorker, but she’s out of town more often than not, and she documents her trips around the world with some great photographs.
In a Dream is a family film. The director is Jeremiah Zagar. The main character is his father Isaiah Zagar, an eccentric artist who over the past four decades has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with stunning mosaic murals. The murals chronicle his love for his wife, Julia, and hint at the darker corners of an outlandish imagination. The film took Jeremiah about seven years to complete.
