Check this out. Unknown Peruvian director Ricardo De Montreuil shot this impressive short film in downtown Los Angeles over a weekend. Total budget $5000. I think we will hear more about this talent in the near future.
Jean-Pierre Jeunet is one of my all time favourite movie directors. Classics like Delicatessen, The city of lost children, Amelie and A Very Long Engagement makes me want to forgive the really crappy ending of Alien: Resurrection. His latest creation, Micmacs, has been played on film festivals around the world for a while. I’m not sure when I can watch it in Sweden so at the moment I will have to suffice with this marvelous trailer.
This is a new version of a track I originally did around 10 years ago. It’s a bit different compared to my latest stuff – not really danceable – it’s kinda quirky electronish, with some trance’ish elements.. and it has a sample of a live bass player.
Such a strange and long process it is for me to create my own music nowadays. Remixing other artists are usually not a problem. I tend to pin that down in a week or two. But my own stuff.. can take months to finish. I probably spend around 80-90% of that time testing out different arrangements, then throwing them away when listening to it the next day. Testing different drums, different sounds, different basslines. Then once in a while, just maybe.. if all the stars are correctly aligned, I get a sudden flash of inspiration and rebuild and finish the whole track in a couple of hours. I just wish those flashes could come more often. I need a break from life so I can make more music. Oh well..
