ARE MORICA – MUD
MN014

A video by Are Morica

Through its notes and its slow atmosphere, Ambient is a music that allows to travel, to visually imagine situations, stories. « MUD » is the one of a boxer who is preparing himself for a fight and who feels the need to go at the shallows of his city to remind himself to the life’s hardness of some people. He must look at the mud in order to draw new strength from it.

Tanguy alias « Are Morica » ​​lives in the district of Bodnath in Kathmandu. He has always been inspired by these decrepit alleys in which appear an unusual life and faces. In this new track accompanied by a music video, he once again pays tribute to these everyday « unimportant people ». Musically speaking, the song is at the borders of classical ambient codes and the film theme where we feel touches of film noir and « jazz noir ». He wanted to break several codes. In the first place, the usual postcards of this district, often summarized through the Stupa and the monasteries. In the second place, to leave classic illustrations of ambient music, often made of sumptuous landscapes. Through these images, Are Morica wishes to recall that you can also see beauty in the mud. He delivers a clip that looks more like a movie teaser, an experimental video where everyone can imagine the rest of the story.

GIADAR – A SIGN OF HOPE

A video by absÜrda

For this month of June, I offer you my images to illustrate the music of the artist Giadar from Italy.

On a strange ground, water and sand are mixing together, forming glittery patterns. New planet ? Daydream ? Wait… where are we really now ?

I think the atmosphere that emerges from my film fits perfectly with Giadar’s intentions in its composition:  » I imagined that, after a world cataclysm, a station in Antarctic, the only one still active on Earth, is able to transmit music for the few survivors. Thanks to this transmission and the musical notes transmitted, the survivors will find the courage to look forward. »

JUSSI ALARAASAKKA – FROZEN WAVES
MN010

A video by absÜrda

Welcome to a kingdom of ice… where nature, stilled by frost, offers a petrified vision. But under a diaphanous veil with bluish reflections, the waves are only drowsy, the timespan of a whisper… patience, spring is coming.

TOM LECLERC – NEPTUNE
MN008

A video by absÜrda

Homage to Neptune, god of live waters, springs, and seas. The sun rises over the ocean, sets the sky ablaze, is reflected on the water which it tints with its heat. The waves mingle, form coloured foam patterns. Return to calm, on the beach the warm waves caress the golden sand.

MIROUF – HOUSE IN THE FOREST
MN007

A video by absÜrda

Let’s dive into a misty forest, let ourselves be enveloped by these tiny droplets of water, like iced cotton … Let us lose our gaze at the tops of large trees, powerful, imposing, disturbing… Nature, sublime, is everywhere, all around us, we cannot escape it… Let’s follow the damp paths, let’s move forward, deep in the dark woods… The house shouldn’t be very far away…

We invite you to a new fall stroll along the water that we dedicate to all people limited in their movements. This is an invitation to slide together on the waves, lakes, rivers … to reach the sea. Nature is everywhere, vegetable, mineral. Feel the wind in your hair, the freshness on your face, listen to the soft murmur of water, hypnotic, soothing.

subLOGIC – PROFUND STATE
MN004

A video by absÜrda

Imagine. 200 million years ago, almost all of Europe was underwater … the Alps did not exist, just a vast tropical sea dotted here and there with flat, sand-covered islands…

Imagine. On August 4, 1818, the northern summit of the Aiguille du Midi (3,795 meters) is conquered for the first time by seven men, with the means of the time …

Imagine. The overwhelming, visceral desire to conquer new spaces, devoid of any human presence. To go beyond one’s own limits. To overcome despair and the possibility of giving up, to move forward, painfully, one step at a time, but to move on, no matter what. To challenge the elements, to tame a harsh, cruel environment. To be the first, the very first human to set foot on a new ground, whether sand, ice, or snow. The very first to see a landscape that no one else has been able to set eye on… (Thanks to Sophie Guyard Jabaud for theses images she shot herself at the « Aiguille du Midi »).

LE CODE – RADIATE

Energy radiates around us. Blue shimmers and overtakes us fully. Let the flow carry us away. We can roam on it.

The water draws psychedelic patterns, captivating our eyes, our thoughts. Hypnotic waves, magical swell.

SUBSTAK – ARS LONGA
MN002

A video by absÜrda

I offer a trip to the heart of the rock, in a mineral, raw, hard universe, as close as possible to the elements. Water is energy here, it does not soothe us but keeps us awake, making its own way in this arid landscape. Then we look up to the heights. Threatening ridges hang over us. High altitude euphoria takes over slowly, the rocks want to engulf us. The landscape spins, we lose our footing and we surrender to this wild nature.
