Upcoming project...

Since David Firth has now publicly announced this on his Twitter, I guess I won't have to be secretive about it any more; I'm composing the soundtrack for the next episode of his popular and creepy "Salad Fingers" cartoon series, the first new episode in four years. This'll be my first collaboration with Mr. Firth since 2008's stop motion "Crooked Rot", which I wrote about earlier on this blog.

Not familiar with Salad Fingers? Familiarize yourself with this, a representative early episode from 2004.

This balance study by Jacob Tonski looks amazingly strange.

punchy art

This is a nice art installation that is bound to interact with the audience. It might be more of a technical gimmick than a deeply thoughtfull work of art that works well at a festival, but it would be awesome in a museum too I think, stir things up a little. The only thing is that you are not likely to get the hilarious drunk polish badass guy of the last round in a museum. Or... you never know!

The work is by Stefan Gross, whose other works are fun as well:

Blödes Orkester

Blödes Orchester from white tube on Vimeo.

“Angeordnet wie ein Sinfonieorchester verwandeln sich rund 200 historische Staubsauger, Mixer und Waschmaschinen in Musikinstrumente. Sie bilden ein Ensemble, das der Dirigent, Cembalist und Komponist Michael Petermann alias Weisser Rausch nach acht Jahren Vorarbeit nunmehr vollendet hat: Das Blöde Orchester.”

This might be interersting for you experimental musicians out there. I think the idea is cool, although the music is not so much my cup of tea. But funny anyway!

Midnight Films at MaerzMusik

This week, as part of the MaerzMusik festival for experimental music, Babylon Mitte are screening interesting films at midnight each night. Tonight they'll screen Greenaway's amazing ZOO (A Zed and Two Noughts), tomorrow Matthew Barney's Drawing Restraint 9, and on wednesday one of my all time favourites, David Lynch's Eraserhead. I haven't seen it in a theatre before so I'll be all over it.

If you're in Berlin, be sure to check out the program! Tickets are 6.50 EUR.

Francoise Gamma

This is some wonderfully strange, mysterious and beautiful stuff. I love it.

UPDATE: More (colourful) work here!

Four Color Fear

Boing Boing has an article up about a book, Four Color Fear, that seems like another item that should be in Bart's library. There's also a flickr collection of some pages from the book.

Slow month?

Here's a nice, cosy picture to look at until the next post.

Watching this trailer for the Xbox game 'Limbo' makes me enthusiastic about modern computer games for the first time since... I don't know, 1991?

Meatcleaver Massacre

Found this film poster by accident... the film has only got a 2.6 out of 10 on the imdb, but I don't care. I want to see it anyway.

UPDATE: What really cracks me up is that according to reviews, there is not a single meatcleaver anywhere in the film.
