Alexa Meade takes an innovative approach to art. Not for her a life of sketching and stretching canvases. Instead, she selects a topic and then paints it–literally. She covers everything in a scene–people, chairs, food, you name it–in a mask of paint that mimics what’s below it. In this eye-opening talk Meade shows off photographs of some of the more outlandish results, and shares a new project involving people, paint and milk.
The next act waiting in the wings and I’m not talking about that boring and cheesy elevator music; is Somepling (Olivier Rousseaux), a French beatsmith with hip-hop influences. Somepling’s latest and most recent project is called Finally Lost. It’s a short, four-song album that represents his feelings of being restriction-free. It’s an experimental album that he tries to deviate from his comfort zone. From the quick jazz style percussion of “Melt Kownia” to the majestic “Cylatha Map”, the album is quite diverse in its sounds. Open your windows and relax to the intricate tunes of Somepling’s Finally Lost.
Reverbed claps and snaps, glitchy hi-hats, and nostalgic synth lines are the supporting cast to the vocal sampling done within the track. Taken from N-Qia’s “Verb,” Shklovsky has twisted the sample until it’s virtually unrecognizable. The sample’s tone at times human & at others robotic, is an almost constant presence, swinging through octaves and channel processing, threading all the other layers together. So, check out “Lines” below and let us know what you think.
Le myosis est la diminution de la pupille par contraction de l’iris. C’est un phénomène inconscient qui peut être provoqué par une lumière vive, par la peur, ou sous l’effet d’une prise de conscience.
Myosis is the constriction of the iris which decreases the diameter of the pupil. It is an unconscious phenomenon which can be triggered by an intense light, fear, or the effect of epiphany.

In New York-based Bebe Rexha’s cover to Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home;” the song is reworked from a girl’s point of view and steers away from its hip-hop origin, moving instead towards an acoustic ballad route. The cover, which cuts at a minute and a half, is a complete rework of the tune that still manages to compliment the track’s original verses and chords, adding a smooth and sultry touch.
In collaboration with Duffy Jewellery, Memento Mori is a short produced by the innovative video content creators from London — Knock Knock. Featuring beautiful bespoke pieces by the skillful jewelry craftsman Duffy, this piece stars some odd wild sunflower babies and creepy crawlies. As director Jacob Harmer explains “The concept was to explore things not always being as they seem, a darkness behind a beautiful facade. We wanted the audience to experience being beneath the earth and exposed to this visceral fear. This is then replaced with wonder at the creatures that have an almost alien presence, but actually share the planet with us. We wanted the discovery of the beauty within these creatures to mirror the treasures they guard.” Born of a fascination with things not always being as they seem. ‘Memento Mori’ is the latin translation of ‘Remember you will die,’ and explores the darkness and fear that often lies beneath a beautiful facade.

In Spring 2013 we set out for a month to make a short educational piece providing a glimpse of what it is like to work in the creative industry. The idea was born out of our own questions and struggles on how to deal with things that may seem out of your control.
The themes we decided to focus on were those of creativity, relationships, the pursuit of financial profit, and the many directions you can intentionally or unintentionally find yourself taking. We hope the short provides direction in helping others pursue their own creative and personal goals by hearing first hand experiences. Thank you to everyone involved for your transparency and willingness to be involved.
