Robert Lauri's avant-garde/experimental video and song "Blueland" off his new album "Power In Heaven" takes you to a place far, far away, allowing your mind to be free flowing along the avenues of adventure and imagination with instruments overlapping and swirling together to form a tranquil harmony and a feeling of peace and tranquility. But "Blueland" is perfect for many moods – relaxing, being contemplative and/or reflective, working, or cruising behind the wheel of your car on a picturesque day. The flute, synthesizer, guitar and percussion provide the perfect backdrop for the striking harmonic piano foundation which repeats throughout the track, keeping the song centered and the listener entranced. "Blueland" has a strong Asian sound and quality about it, which only adds to the serene and natural quality of the song. The percussion really comes to life in the end, taking the track to a new level, where dancers move their bodies in sync fervently in a beautiful and rhythmic way.
In keeping with the theme of the music, the video shows nature in all of its splendor and glory, pictures of seemingly prehistoric and medieval times, pyramids, and ancient and famous sites. "Blueland" is an extract from the album Power In Heaven, which is scheduled for release at the end of April. Music and arrangements are by Robert Lauri, and video editing was done by Anna Clara Passarelli.

Short film about Collective unconscious.
Back in the November...when I first have discovered meaning of the term I got absolutely fascinased by it and I have read many articles about it.
In that time I was also reading a book Steppenwolf by Hermann Hesse and that inspired me as well so I decide to make a short film about an intelectual who is strugling from the harschness of the modern age, who is trying to explain the term with his chaotic thoughts.
The idea of the film is that every person is sharing his individual process of thinking.
Camera: Panasonic GH1
Lenses: Basic lens, Pentacon auto 2.8/29

Model of the moment Andrej Pejic was all dolled up in Jean Paul Gaultier.
Fresh from Paris and Milan, we have the Manzie Report featuring the latest trends, mistakes and mishaps for Fall 2011. The over-arching story for men is luxe, sophisticated, elegance. There were boxier shapes and shorter skorts. No, I am not kidding. Since Marc Jacobs wears nothing but kilts, Parisian menswear designers took that look to the next level and hiked up the length of skorts for men. Let’s face it, the kilt length is not all that flattering, and men’s legs are just as lovely to look at as women’s…especially when they are long, lean and muscular.
Collections from Hermes, Giorgio Armani and Lanvin were achingly chic while Miharayasuhiro, Bernhard Wilhelm and Thierry Mugler were campy beyond. The guys from Mugler, who are Lady Gaga‘s stylists, threw looks down the runway that would otherwise be worn by their muse, rather than men. Designer Boris Bidjan Saberi presented a collection that was modeled by Jesus Christ and his Twelve Disciples. I call the look Sexy Peasant. Damir Doma couldn’t resist throwing down a collection geared to obsessive Klaus Nomi fans while Jean Paul Gaultier was compelled to live up to his “bad boy” reputation from twenty years ago by adding some silly looks, which did not enhance his otherwise dapper collection. What is apparent is that the “Dandy” in not happening and men are men again. Coca-Cola must be sponsoring Dolce & Gabbana in light of their tax evasion drama while Muccia Prada was seemingly inspired by Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg‘s song, Dick In A Box. Anna Wintour will be safe this season because PETA will have their hands full throwing paint balls at men since so many collections featured fur bits on collars.

Theremin music recorded on Zoom R16 using six tracks.
Theremin music recorded on Zoom R16 using six tracks. The first track (upper right) was interrupted by a cat, a non-musical cat at that, but I decided to continue and make the best of it. The third track (upper right) had the video light go out on its own accord. So I said "light on" and then it turned back on. I had thought to cover both flaws with a full shot from one of the other tracks, but decided to take the easy way out and be real. Well it saved probably four hours of work as well. No wonder I never practice. The rest of the tracks were recorded without event.Theremin music recorded on Zoom R16 using six tracks. The first track (upper right)... more

Prepare yourself. Because right now, even as you read this article... the backyards, basements, spare room studios, and street corner stoops of Allentown and Elmwood Ave are abuzz with the creative energy that only The Buffalo Infringement Festival can imbibe in the city's arts community. The application deadline for the 2010 Infringement Festival which takes place in late July has officially passed. And those artists lucky enough to be in the know, are now busy shaping their event proposals, honing their artistic skills, and perfecting their respective crafts. Consider yourself warned... The Infringers have landed.
Due to last years success (and turn-out) the planning process for this years fest began almost immediately after the 2009 festivities wrapped. Since late September, a colorful hodgepodge of characters have been huddled under dim lights in the darkened recess of Nietzsches' back-room. This motley crew of a dozen or so artists, educators, performers, and art enthusiasts make up the organizing team that will be responsible for the spectacle that is The Buffalo Infringement Festival (BIF). To date; they have held mixers, socials, cook-offs, band showcases, and even movie nights all in thinly veiled attempt to raise funds for this all volunteer, 100% homegrown and indigenous art uprising.
Infringement flatly rejects corporate sponsorship. Instead, it relies completely upon on the generous support of people like you, from this The City of Good Neighbors. BIF has grown exponentially not only in size but in popularity since its inception in 2005. Last year, an estimated 8000 festival goers were immersed in a flood of consistently fresh and interestingly real art that seem to flow from the festival like a newly open fire hydrant on a hot summer day. The number of participating artists has snowballed from less then forty in it's first year to the nearly 400 acts this year promises. They hail from artistic disciplines that are as varied as the fifty plus local businesses that act as venues for those eleven cherished days of summer .
BIF claims to have exposed well over 20,000 Buffaloanians to their brand of arts and entertainment through various non-conventional forms of street performance, displays, and exhibits. Infringement resents the absence of art in the everyday lives of us all. And represents an intent to change that taboo. Their aim is to attract an audience as diverse as their artist. So wether you are a contractor, pizza delivery guy, or a working mother, Infringement has something for you. They revel in how different this festival is from every other in the city. They even boast of its ability to do all of this without artistic compromise (or long lines of booths and tables stocked with everything to decorate your country kitchen).
Nope, The Buffalo Infringement Festival is not an opportunity for out of town crafters to syphon desperately needed funds out of the city. Nor will it shy away from tearing down the walls so firmly cemented around what art should, or even could be. No. Infringement's focus is on testing the limits of acceptance, defining the artistic cutting edge, and pushing the proverbial envelope to create a new medium for local and regional artists to tell their story.
So again prepare yourself. You have been warned! The Infringers have landed and it appears they're here to stay.Prepare yourself. Because right now, even as you read this article... the backyards,... more
