Transform day Today

Daca ar fi sa ti schimbi astazi ziua, din ce te-ai inspira?

Iata filmele si muzicile care-l inspira pe un artist minunat Woodkid – intimplator (cu o singura exceptie) toate celelalte alegeri ale lui sunt si pe lista mea de preferinte.

1. Steven Spielberg

“The filmmakers I watched when I was a kid were big, mainstream directors like Spielberg or Stanley Kubrick – the only ones I would have access to as a little kid growing up in the middle of France. With Spielberg, it was about how his subjects were treated and the emotion he had in his films. There’s something about his camera work that’s very unique, and that’s what I like about him.”

2. Gus Van Sant

“Elephant is his best movie, but I have a very strong soft spot for Paranoid Park. I love how he injects violence into something very casual and mundane – when the kid is shot in Elephant or in the Paranoid Park death scene, it’s a shock to reality. The contrast between reality and violence is so big that it’s much more impressive than a Tarantino movie, where it’s all about the violence.”

3. Philip Glass

“When I was younger, I’d listen to a lot of soundtracks and I randomly fell on Philip Glass’ soundtrack for Koyaanisqatsi. The first time I listened to his music, I could feel emotions that were indescribable – it wasn’t pain, it wasn’t nostalgia, it wasn’t uplifting – the emotion that came out was very alien, in a way. I’ve always been fascinated by the power of music to create emotions.”

4. Michel Gondry

“I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing if Gondry wasn’t a director. He made the videos I would see on TV – I think the first Michel Gondry video I saw was Bjork’s ‘Bachelorette’. I just remember watching them over and over, like I was studying them. But now, I feel like I’m getting closer to directors like Chris Cunningham or Spike Jonze because I’m getting more cinematic and less playful with what I do. I try to tell stories that are a little more realistic.”

5. Rap and hip-hop rhythms

“When I created my album, we sampled a lot of orchestral music but we built on patterns and structures that are actually from rap beats. Right now I’m fascinated by Kendrick Lamar; I was at his show a couple of days ago and I think he’s the best rapper out there right now. Of course I love Jay-Z, and I have a soft spot for Kanye – people forget he’s an amazing producer, and his connection with visuals is mind-blowing.”

***

ultima lui alegere n-ar fi pe lista mea:) dar eu as mai adauga Albastrul lui Kieslowski, fratii Wachowski, muzicile lui Zimmer si Tom Tykwe (ca sa ramin in zona filmelor), pe Wong Kar Wai, Akram Khan si… cred ca as mai adauga vreo citeva nume de domni pentru ca ziua mea sa aiba o transformare ABSOLUTA:)

daca ar fi sa-ti transformi ziua astazi, ce-ai face? din ce te-ai inspira?

michel gondry la B-est

Un cuplu de japonezi se muta la tokyo in cautarea unei cariere.

Ea e motorul relatiei si face eforturi ca sa le mearga bine. El isi gaseste de lucru unde aplicase ea (impachetat cadouri); ea e privita de prietena la care locuiesc drept o ciudata care nu face altceva decit sa decupeze anunturi din ziare. Intr-o seara, dupa ce facuse eforturi mari ca sa indeplineasca visul iubitului (sa difuzeze public filmul pe care el il facuse) fata aude cum ii minimalizeaza efortul prietena ei si cit de urit vbst despre ea.
Dimineata observa ca prin camasa lasa o umbra ciudata pe perete. Trece soarele prin ea. Are o gaura in piept.
(Si pt ca stii ca e disperata si suparata, gindesti ca e goala pe dinauntru.)
Pleaca la interviuri pentru job si pe parcursul zilei, gaura din piept e tot mai mare. Apare si un grilaj in gaura aia; apoi un picior i se transforma ca si cum ar avea o proteza de lemn; mai tirziu si celalalt picior. Pina seara se transforma intr-un scaun.

Ajunge in casa unui tinar muzician. Cind el e plecat, ia inapoi chip si trup de femeie: face curat, ii aseaza insemnarile, ii pregateste de mincare. El nu stie ca are acasa o femeie mobila pentru ca atunci cind e prezent, ea se transforma inapoi in scaun si asculta muzica pe care el o compune sau il urmareste discret ce scrie la computer.

Scena de final: “Ma simt mai utila decit am fost vreodata”, zice fata in timp ce e mobila la una dintre seratele muzicale ale noului ei proprietar.

Filmul se numeste Interior Design si e fct de Michel Gondry

(mi-a plct asa de mult ca l-am pove prietenilor. am dat copy paste la ce le-am scris lor ca sa pun si aici)
