Mister Rogers Remixed -> Garden of Your Mind

This is an absolutely brilliant remix by Symphony of Science’s John Boswell for PBS. Especially for those who grew up with Mr. Rogers, we may look back and chuckle, but you cannot deny the power of his positive messages, delivered with that smooth, caring, lyrical style that only he could flow. haha.

Sandro Perri -> love and light

sandro perri · love and light from Pedro Maia on Vimeo.

Incredibly stimulating visuals and sounds coming from an artist partnership, Pedro Maia – film and Sandro Perri – music. I highly recommend you check out the full album by Sandro Perri called ‘Impossible Spaces’.

Notes from Vimeo:

“Love and Light” video aims to explore the relation between a musician […]

Christmas Card to Friends -> Stephen Fitzgerald

Christmas Card to Friends from Stephen Fitzgerald on Vimeo.

Arcade Fire -> Sprawl 2 (interactive video)

The new interactive video experience titled ‘Sprawl 2: Mountains Beyond Mountains’ coming from Arcade Fire feels really fresh and innovative, right down to the dismal, twitchy videography and art direction. In short you get to swing and sway right along with the track with either your mouse or with your own body via the video […]

La Mer de Pianos -> Films & Things

La Mer de Pianos from Films & Things on Vimeo.

Great short documentary about Marc Manceaux, the owner of the oldest piano shop in Paris. Sometimes things are amazing, simply because they have managed to stay the same. Well worth the view.

Walking in your mind -> Ithaca Audio

Walking in your mind (live mashup) from Ithaca Audio on Vimeo.

It’s amazing what has become possible with live audiovisual sampling. Monome, tonematrix and tenori-on sampling devices have really evolved over that last few years. Fun stuff to keep an eye on.

Shuffler.FM -> iPad App

Some are calling the Shuffler.FM iPad app the “Flipboard of music discovery”. It automagically aggregates music content from thousands of tastemakers, music blogs, sites and magazines creating one big fat, music channel of love …something like that. Just when I was just starting to really get into Spotify. On to the next thing I suppose.

Get App […]

Burning Man -> Rites of passage

Burning Man: Rites of passage – Day from Ahmed on Vimeo.

This impeccably produced and captured video was taken at this year’s Burning Man. It’s a complete trip and well worth the view. SRSLY. Watch it.

Notes from Vimeo:

“Part one (Day) of a two part series. A short glimpse of a Burning Man experience. Hope you enjoy […]

Golden Tree -> Martin Brooks Blues

While we’re on the topic of bicycles… this is super fun and well worth the view. Look Mom! No hands!

Notes from Vimeo page:

TIKA -> For Better Or For Worse

This nicely done documentary/music video for the Dutch indie band ‘Tika’ was directed by Victor Vroegindewiej. The short story carries a heavy mood as it follows along veteran actor Carel Struycken (The Adams Family, Star Trek, Het Paard van Sinterklaas) as he escapes society to reconnect with himself and nature.

Notes from YouTube:

“The film explores the increasing […]

Slow Magic -> Corvette Cassette

Slow Magic // Corvette Cassette from Feel Good Lost on Vimeo.

This video by director and editor Brendan Canty is a very nice example of color filtering, compositing and kaleidoscopic effects. The amped up music track was produced by Slowmagic.

Tame Impala -> Innerspeaker

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any interesting music here on circuitbreaks. This past weekend while having breakfast at Easy Street Records in the new hood, Tame Impala bellowed into my ears and made my egg and cheese sandwich that much more of a deeper experience. The Australian three piece cranks out some seriously […]

Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World -> Joey Tosi

Cry Baby: The Pedal That Rocks The World from Joey Tosi on Vimeo.

This is a great video documentary on one of my personal favorite music related inventions of all times, the cry baby effect pedal. Myself being a guitar player, collector and overall enthusiast for 24 years now, must admit that there are very few […]

Matta: Release the Freq -> Kim Holm

Matta – Release The Freq from Kim Holm on Vimeo.

I like the use of motion tracking, color filtering and atmospheric infographics in this video directed by motion designer Kim Holm. At times, it’s a little bit like watching a circa 1970s National Geographic wildlife video… in Webster Hall or something? Besides that, I really like […]
