A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR SPONSORS
So we’ve got some pretty exciting news to announce. Quite a lot of it, actually. Ultimately, for the remainder of this week, and next week, we’ll be unraveling the news for you all. For today, let’s start with the promotional video spot for the soon-to-be released album by our very own Gouseion, titled: Puisne. Produced by Colorcubic. Yay!
Earlier this year, The Bear & The Sea threw us a little teaser from his upcoming split EP with A Gap Between. One of the tracks in particular (Wistful Algae Break) really stood out to us, and we thought it would work really well as a quick promo spot. So under our design studio, Colorcubic, we produced this promotional video spot for the Bear. Also, while we were at it, we decided to improve upon our Nueva Forma ident title spot.
Hope you enjoy!
Once again, Miori graces us with this beautiful teaser of surrealistic cinematography, 3D rendered composites, and a beautiful ambient track; an excerpt from an up-and-coming new Miori release, right here on Nueva Forma. If you enjoy what you see, let us know by sounding off in the comments below. Cheers!
We’re anticipating an amazing follow-up from Miori, to I Have No Memory Of This Place. Until then, please enjoy this teaser spot from Miori, [see below] (with more to follow). Also, make sure to subscribe for more updates and details on new music from Nueva Forma. Enjoy!
When it comes to procreation, the offspring tend to embody the traits of their parents. When it comes to this custom Monome-Guitar, there’s certainly no exception to that rule. Thanks to Ben Brown for this beautiful marriage, and offspring of a guitar and monome. Great video as well.
In my formative high school years, my friends and I were discovering all sorts of amazing bands. My friend Stephen was hooked on The Ramones and tried to get me into them; quite unsuccessfully I might add. I just didn’t get it. There seemed to be nothing special at all about The Ramones but Stephen just couldn’t get enough. It all sounded the same to me. I told him, “Every song sounds the same to me” and he kind of paused for a bit. Then he got this look and said to me, “Yeah but it’s a great song.” Years later, after becoming a true Techno fan and DJ, I would remember Stephen’s words. Because they made total sense to me. Techno was my Ramones.
Speaking in Code is a documentary about the love of Techno, the people who produce it, and the people who are lost in it. The trailer is awesome and I’m really excited to see it because it seems so focused. Most documentaries on electronic music tend to focus on superstars and act as a starter kit for the uninitiated. Speaking in Code doesn’t really have that feel to me. From the press release:
“…an intimate account of people who are completely lost in music. A heartbreaking and lighthearted documentary, it’s a vérité glimpse into the world of techno.”
Features a stellar cast of producers (I’m really looking forward to the brothers Voigt footage): Modeselektor, Wighnomy Brothers, Monolake, Philip Sherburne, Ellen Allien, Tobias Thomas, Marc LeClair AKA Akufen, Wolfgang Voigt, Michael Mayer, Reinhard Voigt, Sascha Ring AKA Apparat, Sascha Funke, Mario Willms AKA Douglas Greed, Miss Kittin, Dan Paluska AKA Six Million Dollar Dan, and Mike Uzzi AKA Smartypants.
Right now director/producer Amy Grill is trying to get the film into several film festivals so if anyone has any connections in their town give her a tweet. Also check out the behind the scenes trailer via Facebook.
