Recently I came across an interesting video by a singer/songwriter called David Ford. He released a new video for his song “Go To Hell”, in which he showcased an interesting way of making music. He played the song by sampling a few chords of every instrument. Pay attention to the beginning, he starts the song off with a water boiler (no really!). Watch the video here:
In my head I immediately started going through my own music collection and thought of a few other artists who use this method of playing music with samples. Most of them do it only when they perform live and it sounds amazing. Suggestions to this list are obviously much appreciated.
British singer/songwriter David Gray recently released a video for his new single Fugitive. The song will be featured on David’s latest record Draw the Line.
Both video and song are exceptional. The song is a little more uplifting and uptempo than the avarage David Gray song. The drums are very present, and draw your attention immediately.
The video shows David playing the song in a room with his guitar and piano. Around him drawings appear and disappear on the walls, as well as on his piano. The concept gives a whole new meaning to graffiti.
Oren Lavie is a singer/songwriter from Israel. The video for his song “Her Morning Elegance” is a beautiful stop motion film, starring Oren himself and Israeli actress Shir Shomron. I came across this video a while ago, but just thought of it. This stop motion video is situated on a bed, filmed from above.
Some additional information from Daily Inspiration:
Filming was shot over two days in the studio of Tel Aviv photographer Eyal Landesman. The video is made up of 3225 still photos shot using one camera hanging from the ceiling for the main body of the movie. An animated computer generated storyboard for the video, using 3D dummies, was produced over the four weeks before filming started.
