Movie night

Ever seen a movie made from a good book read before seeing the movie? For some unapparent reason it seems to be one of the hardest things to make a good movie from a good book.

Ever seen a good movie and read the book it was based on afterwards? Equally disappointing. Something to do with artistic interpretation – but with expressive arts such as movies and books, well at least with those made for mass consumption, you would think the weight was on expression instead of personal impression. Reality too often shows the true nature of such attempts.

Music is another domain – ever seen a good movie and played the soundtrack afterwards? Music evokes the feelings experienced during the movie, the mind working hard at it to connect the dots and at best creating new depth for the meanings of the motion picture. Similarly amazing is that sometimes music can work the other way too. After first hearing a good song you learn it was features in a movie. Growing to like a movie you found based on a song can be pleasing. But the associations that music weaves in our minds to memories of feelings is even more unique.

So here is some music for reminiscing the feelings brought on by a movie – Drive. This track is one among many, however, it captures a lot of the atmosphere and the division of the main character – being a hero and a human being – all carefully orchestrated by the director, Nicolas Winding Refn.

Digging the deep end

Got some fun tech house music for a change.

A fresh acquaintance, Roberto del Burgo (GER), has just released a nice track running well over an hour. Now I’m not a great fan of long mixes, in fact I find them rather dull. Long tracks, however, work with house music – when listening is a secondary function. Incidentally this is exactly what I was doing.

The track works – just don’t expect it to be in a hurry getting there. It’s great if you’ll be surfing on, working on some dreary office tasks or just relaxing with friends! If you can’t wait, I’m with you – just scroll to around 16min mark for some fresh deep house sounds 🙂

Gesaffelstein & Brodinski

A while ago I posted Gesaffelstein’s Viol (LA Yaute Bootleg) and now I have a follow-up for those who appreciated the sounds. This time it’s a track from Gesaffelstein in collaboration with Brodinski – another artist worth checking out if you like what you hear. In case you are interested in catching Gesaffeltein live this summer he happens to be touring Western Europe quite extensively. Finland on the other hand is not on the tour list, how typical!

Intermission

How much time do we spend in our lives waiting for something to happen? How much in transit from one place to another? Nothing really happening just waiting, perhaps hoping, or thinking ahead. Here is for the intermissions of today:

It’s a saturday night banger

I don’t know how I missed this one when it was released a year ago. Never-the-less, it still sounds fresh. Then again, maybe you missed it too, you’re welcome!
