Vukovar – “The Three Shades” Music Video Collage

Posted by on Oct 21, 2016 in Music Videos, News | 0 comments

Music video collage by Marilyn Roxie for Vukovar’s “The Three Shades” single on Vulpiano Records.

With ‘The Three Shades’, Vukovar emerge once more from amongst the ruins of fallen industry and issue a proclamation: but rather than spell it out, these hushed voices speak in concrete-language. To understand you must submit to the subliminal.

This time the trio are joined by 80’s cult movie star, ‘Queen of the B’s’ Dawn Wildsmith; truly a match made in purgatory.

‘The Three Shades’ is a glimpse into Vukovar’s ever evolving creative processes, where the minimal is maximalist and all things real and unreal are just grist for the mill.

Golden Grey – Greenish Blue (VULP-0085)

From the forthcoming 2017 release Colours comes the single track, “Greenish Blue” by Golden Grey. Providing a sample of what to expect in the soon-to-be future, along with the never before released b-side, “Underpass”. Golden Grey has been compared to artists such as C148 and Ratatat, while maintaining a sound unique all on its own. It’s ambient electronic music that builds towards epic finales, leaving the listener wanting more. Follow-up to Awaken the Wolf.

Bio and Background Information:

Golden Grey is an electronic journey through soft bells and glitchy rhythms conveying an outcome of emotion. The debut album “Awaken The Wolf” contains five tracks, each sculpted carefully to impress. Golden Grey’s identity remains a mystery but that makes the music that much more intriguing. It’s electronic music that is simple, yet cinematic, inspired by artists such as Tennyson, Baths and Tycho.

Dennis Cooper’s Blog Guest Post: Marilyn Roxie presents … Visual Music and Colorful Video Art

Posted by on Sep 13, 2016 in Articles | 0 comments

As an artist newly interested in the digital video format,  I have been exploring the works of artists both in analog film and digital video to better understand possibilities within the medium. Video art is a kind of tiny nest egg within the broader category of experimental cinema, though it is video art and visual music that I am generally most interested in. Video art has great crossover with conceptual art and performance art, as well as features of pop art and abstract art, among others, though I won’t be focusing on video art in a broader sense here. Visual music films include visual representations to go along with music (like squares, squiggles, flashing colors), as well as silent films with visuals that follow musical patterns. Utilizing video synthesizers, VJ-ing techniques, and software like Max are a few ways to experiment with and produce works within the realm of visual music.
 
Here I have selected ten of my favorite short film and video pieces. The structure of some visual music pieces is not dissimilar to how I arranged my own mental picture about music while it was playing when I was a kid. Not everything here falls into the visual music category, but they share strong shape and color elements.
