Jamie xx’s Music Video Inspires The Deaf And The Hearing Alike

jamie-xx-video

Artist and poet Sofia Mattioli‘s latest project is a self-directed music video for Grammy-winning English music producer Jamie xx’s new track, “Sleep Sound.” Instead of hiring experience background dancers or actors, Mattioli cast deaf members of the Manchester Deaf Centre to dance along with her.

A piece of art in itself, the video is beautifully filmed and portrays how the dancers are able to respond to Mattioli’s movements and to the track’s vibrations in the air, even though they’re unable to hear any of the notes. Captured in slow motion, their improvised routines and movements are angelic and make the scenes breathtaking to watch.

“I was on a train listening to music, getting deep into it, and this girl started staring at me,” Mattioli explains to Nowness. “After a while I took my headphones off and she came up to me, started signing and then wrote me a note to say that she was deaf but could almost feel the music by my movement.” This was the deciding point when Mattioli felt an artistic need to capture and extend this once in a lifetime moment. She hopes to develop the project further, but for now, check out the breathtaking video below.

Five Music Festivals Worth Traveling To

Electrobeach_Music_Festival_2013

Big or small, outdoor music festivals have a certain magic to them. From traveling to the actual festival, to watching your favorite artists live – today, music festivals are a must-do activity for all ages. With warm weather finally here, we’ve compiled a list with five of the best outdoor festivals worthy of booking a trip to.

Outside Lands

San Francisco, California

August 8-10

Most people may not be as familiar with Outside Lands as the rest of the festivals on this list, but it’s an event you’ll want to familiarize yourself with. One of the best features is its location in Golden Gate Park, one of the largest urban parks in the world. In between shows, you can enjoy a stroll through the park which includes world-class museums, a small lake, waterfall, and walking and bicycling trails. The festival features a long line-up of bands, both big and small, over a three-day period.

Land Rover to debut Transparent Hood at NY Auto Show

by Rafael Mejia

land-rover-transparent-hood

Have you ever made you ever taken a curb on a narrow mountain side and wished you were able to see how close your front wheels were to the edge of the road?  Well apparently so have to folks over at Land Rover!

Land Rover’s Discovery Vision Concept uses a web of camera images and projectors in order to showcase the area right in front of and underneath the nose of the Concept Car, directly onto a head-up display along the lower half of the windshield.  This allows the driver to see obstacles that would otherwise be hidden.  They dubbed it the “Transparent Hood System”.

The display system also displays the driver speed, incline, roll angle, steering position and driver mode.  With that said however, do not for one minute think that this will only benefit the “off roader”.  Dr. Wolfgang Epple, Director of R&T for Jaguar/Land Rover stated “as our vehicles become more capable and offer increasing autonomy off-road, we will ensure the driver has the confidence to progress over any terrain.  We are developing new technologies like the Transparent Hood to give drivers an augmented view of reality to help them tackle anything from the toughest off-road route to the tight confines of urban parking”.  I’m personally looking forward to dodging NYC potholes, but that’s just me.

Be sure to visit the Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept at the New York Auto Show next week!

Listen Up!: PHOX Release New Single “Slow Motion”

phox

The breathy-yet-powerful intensity of lead-singer Monica Martin’s voice sits somewhere between the evocative agelessness of Christine McVie or Nina Simone with more modern echoes of Chairlift’s Caroline Polacheck. Beneath this, an elegant Lee Hazlewood-meets-Regina Spector arrangement and compressed drums that would sit on the edge of a St Vincent record. PHOX straddle the normally shaky boundary between sounding modern and classic.

Produced by Brian Joseph at April Base Studio in Eau Claire, WI and mixed by Michael Brauer, the album is a school of simple folk-pop songs swimming amidst a chaotic eddy of rock, psychedelia, and soul.  IPHOX recently announced their  June 24 release of their self-titled debut – have released the first single from that album, “Slow Motion,” available for streaming today via SoundCloud.

Listen Up!: SZA ft. Kendrick Lamar – “Babylon”

SZA-Kendrick-Lamar

TDE is best known for bringing up Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, but that all will change this week when their first female signee, SZA, releases her debut album, Z. “Babylon” was the first single from the album (she’s since released another excellent single with Chance the Rapper called “Child’s Play“), but now we’ve received the final album version, which comes with a typically great verse from Kendrick Lamar.

A Star Is Born in Hedi Slimane’s Latest Campaign for Saint Laurent

Many of us are finally getting to enjoy some sun coming out of the intense winter we just had, however, but Hedi Slimane is releasing his pre-fall campaign for Saint Laurent. And it stars only one girl, Grace Hartzel, who opened and closed the house’s fall 2014 collection. According to tweets from Saint Laurent at the time, every look in the show was fitted to her measurements.

The Indianapolis native has been increasingly selective with her runway walks of late. For fall, only Saint Laurent and Chanel made the cut. In previous seasons, she clocked appearances at Dior, Marc Jacobs, and Louis Vuitton, plus a smattering of smaller labels. She can be found in the current issue of Love magazine.

Grace is also the face of Saint Laurent’s Permanent collection for fall 2014 — a line of signature pieces like Le Smoking tuxedo, Chelsea boots, and leopard-print shirts — and can be seen in this new video from Saint Laurent music collaborator Curtis Harding.

Leaked Email From Steve Jobs Reveals Apple’s Strategic Direction

steve-jobs

Someone’s in trouble. An email conversation between former Apple CEO Steve Jobs and other Apple executives a year before his death has been leaked. Jobs had prepared a thorough ‘to do’ list for the secret brainstorming session Apple has each year with its top employees to discuss potential ideas and strategies for the year ahead.

In the email, he reveals insights into how one of the most important and secretive tech companies in the world works. The bullet points included:

The ‘lock in’ strategy
Frowned upon by many an analyst, this strategy entails limiting product offering and including features on products that enable or link with the next in line to literally ‘lock in’ consumers to the Apple ecosystem.

Timberland Taps MDC’s Assembly as Its New Media Agency

timberland-ad-campaign

Timberland has tapped MDC agency Assembly to handle media as the company assumes a more digital-centric strategy.

“We realized the best storytelling in our category is probably in the digital space and really recognized that our future model will be a content-times-distribution model,” said Jim Davey, VP-global marketing, Timberland. “You’re going to see the bulk of our spending now in the digital space. The ability to find consumers where they are online with targeted messaging will have a bigger return-on-investment, versus a shotgun approach of sending broad messages to a large group.”
