Jeff Dodson Conducts the Onesize Symphonic Orchestra

Dutch motion graphics studio Onesize released their exceptionally cinematic new showreel yesterday. The music and sound design were created by Los Angeles based composer Jeff Dodson, who has been working with them for the last several years. The collaboration has gained something of a cult following in the motion graphics community, to the extent that an EP of the music from the reels prior to 2008 was released last year.

Crunkcore Posers, Indie Jesuses (Jesi?) and Scene Queens

Picture 2

Illustrator Rob Dobi has created a cutting collection of archetypical scenesters on “Your Scene Sucks” that had me laughing outloud as I shamefully recognized incarnations of myself and just about everyone I know within these images. The dude above is my ex-boyfriend’s little brother’s best friend. Seriously though! Anyways, it’s kind of like “Homies” action figures, but for anyone young into music scenes. Check out his description for Indie Jesus!

“you sir, are grizzled!¬†with a wardrobe that looks like it was donated to a thrift store by either crosby, stills or nash in 1971 and a beard that has its own zip code, this indie icon has a devout army of worshippers who follow his every whispered word.

the lethargic lo-fi lethario is known to lock himself in a cabin for months on end to craft minimalistic folksy songs. by the end of his self-imposed exile, all he has produced is a stream of hushed whispers with barely fingerpicked guitar strums….one might say his songs give them the chills, but that is only because they passed out listening and forgot to get a blanket.”

Rob Dobi if you are listening, where is the Late 70’s Revivalist high-waisted jean girl with wanna-be Farrah Fawcett feathered hair? You know, Allman Brothers band t-shirt (or other such shirt touting a bearded, mustchio-d, long-haired 70’s rock band), bellbottoms, leather jacket, turquoise rings? I think she stays in the cabin with indie Jesus. (aka, Me.) Ooh, and then the other off-shoot of that, those weird cross-Headband Bohemian Scenesters with those beaded braided headbands with feathers hanging off them?

Cai-Guo Qiang

2006_HeadOn_1

New York based artist, the theatrical Cai-Guo Qiang, is yet another artist I dream of to meet one day. He is mostly known for his gunpowder explosions, where the guided impact of exploded gunpowder creates beautiful marks on the paper it is placed over. Proof how beauty and violence are sometimes intertwined with each other, a concept Cai-Guo works with often.
