Ravishing Mad music
Yesterday at Plezuro was sooooo good! i showed the three first films from my paraphrase project and it makes me truly happy that you enjoyed them. They're gonna be followed by seven more films before the Summer :-) Hahaha, it was so funny with all the sms' I received from you guys "I see you Anna!". We streamed the whole gig from the homepage and 134 people in total followed us. I know the sound and visual was so so, but you know cheap web cams...the day I'm rich and famous I'm gonna treat you with extra, extra, super, uber, proper quality broadcasts! For this gig I prioritized free beer for all the irl people
Here are some pics from yesterday when Street Fighting Man played with us, shot by Jesper Nyreröd, who does band gigs alot. Thanks for the pics!
Street Fighting Man are simply top notch. We immediately started talking about more collaborations! Eric Turner, the singer, wore the struggling musician cardigan and didn't want to take it off after, so I'm gonna make him one for their next gig when they're opening for The Sounds in Stockholm on the 29'th of April. I dressed all of the guys in in RM yesterday and they were so sweet and happy about it, I'm glad to have met them.
And we're gonna start making clothes together. Eric makes fantastic artwork for the band and I'm sure we'll make magic together. I'm meeting all the guys at the studio today to talk more about it! It's so funny, the person he visualizes being the actual street fighting man is a spitting image of my ideas of the ravishing mad man. He's a struggling, quiet, but yet solid hero with a heart of gold, walking the streets in his crazy clothes and fighting the army of conformity.
I've received lots of questions about the music and photage from the films I showed you yesterday, so here are some links:
first film "to john and yoko" music by meconium www.illphabetik.com
second film "to libertines" music by Kat Boelskov
third film "justify my love / or first smoke" music by Sir Charles (contact me for more info)
they are all photographed and filmed by André de Loisted, and I clipped them together with my husband Truls Bråhammar
The musicians are all unsigned and upcoming artists and they are also showing their pretty faces in the films. Kat Boelskov (on the photo) just released her first album in February and is becoming huge at the internet right now. Spread the word!!! Oh yeah, one more thing, if you're an upcoming artist yourself, don't hesitate to contact me! I promote everyone I work with like hell, it'll be fun!
The music that was on during the night was a five hour playlist I made on Spotify the night before the gig. It turned out pretty good so I thought I'd share it with you. You can find it here: ravishing mad playlist.
Thank you so much for yesterday, days like that make me wanna never go to sleep again!
The first of the three videos we showed last night is here down below.
