New York: Dancing Diablo, the innovative animation studio was founded by artist Beatriz Helena Ramos in 2002. Her mission was to bring together a handpicked collaborative group of visual artist specializing in commercial projects and committed to a level of style and freshness that breaks through the clutter and resonate emotionally with its audience. Recently, a competition to create a music video for a track from the Radiohead album, In Rainbows inspired them to do just that. The results: an artistic video landscape that breaks the rules of traditional music video with a visual interpretation of Nude that captures the multi-layered song’s essence in an unexpected way.
“This project pushed the limits of animation into something closer to art,” said Ramos. “We thought it could be very interesting to show not just the video, but the whole range of elements used, including photos, paintings and still frames. The Gallatin Gallery of NYU presented us the ideal venue for this multimedia exhibit.”
While Dancing Diablo is best known for its work in the commercial arena, and remains focused on providing advertising agencies specializing in the general market will groundbreaking animation and design, Ramos considers it essential that her team mixes it up by working in a variety of genres that give them the opportunity to experiment with new techniques and grow as artists. The results is a company that is a unique creative resource with a stellar reputation for creating visually captivating animation and design work that brings a fresh perspective to their commercial projects.
“Nude is a haunting dream-like song, filled with provocative abstract references, and ambiguities,” notes Ramos. “It lyrics and tenor inspired us to deviate from the conventional music video approach, and create a piece of art that captures its complexity with a textural and organic visual stream of consciousness true to the emotional spirit of the song.”
“We did not interpret the lyrics literally, or give them a narrative structure, but rather took a more poetic approach,” adds Ramos. “Nude is a meditative piece – so we wanted to create visuals that would lead the viewers to find their own narrative threads and meaningful associations.
Dancing Diablo created all of the art for the video by hand, combining a variety of natural and manmade objects, while experimenting with the four natural elements: earth, fire, water and air. Remaining true to this organic approach, they opted for traditional stop motion animation, keeping the use of Aftereffects to a minimum.
While Dancing Diablo’s artists have the option of using high-tech hardware and are proficient in manipulating complex software – they let each project and their collective imagination dictate their approach - not the technology.
“Nude demonstrates that by using paint, seeds, nails and a few found object - with a still camera, basic laptop and software that is easily accessible - two people can create a captivating and evocative animated piece with dramatic impact,” states Ojea.
Radiohead’s In Rainbows has been a resounding success from its initial digital release to the standard CD, released in January. Dancing Diablo’s video version of Nude presents their unique, organic interpretation of this song’s message.
Beatriz Helena Ramos and Jose Antonio Ojea directed the piece, which was recently showcased at NYU’s Gallatin Galleries.

Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien says the group will start recording a full-length disc this winter, squashing rumours that they'd given up making albums.
In August, Thom Yorke gave an interview in which he said In Rainbows would their last studio album. As you'd expect, the press and bloggers went crazy over the news and it was widely covered.
But O'Brien claims it was actually a misunderstanding. "We were misquoted," he said in an interview with NME, referring to the article that ran earlier this year in which Thom Yorke said, "None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again...It'll kill us."Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien says the group will start recording a full-length... more
"There is a heavy (perhaps epic) quality to The Sun and Earth, Middle Distance Runner’s newest album. For some unexplainable reason it makes me feel as though I’m traveling through space and time in a clay-mated spaceship. This feeling is unexplainable simply because The Sun and Earth doesn’t come off as anything groundbreaking—especially on the first listen. Each song follows a relatively repetitious rhythm, with assorted change-ups thrown in here and there. Comparisons can easily be made to the likes of Radiohead, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, and a seemingly unending list of pop-rock groups that have a soaring and heady quality to their music....."

'The Age of Stupid' will make a global splash on Sept. 21, launching in America from a solar-powered cinema tent in New York and being shown at more than 400 movie theaters across the United States.
In some ways, however, we're already living in it.
The independent, quasi-documentary is kind of like "An Inconvenient Truth" set in the future.
Oscar-nominee Pete Postlethwaite is living alone in a devastated world, in 2055.
He looks back on the year 2008 and wonders why the world didn't do more to stave off the worst effects of climate change.
One of those featured in the trailer is Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, a global warming activist who contributed the title track to the film.
Should be an interesting movie. I love Radiohead so this is a must see.'The Age of Stupid' will make a global splash on Sept. 21, launching in... more

During the last few days a new Radiohead song was mysteriously released onto the Internet. The track is called “These Are My Twisted Words” and until today it was unclear where it had come from.

Well, we didn't get a new EP, but this is still pretty cool. This morning, Radiohead not only confirmed that "These Are My Twisted Words" is indeed a new Radiohead song, but officially released it themselves.
Writing on the band's blog Dead Air Space, Jonny Greenwood said, "We've been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished. We're pretty proud of it. There's other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we've been practicing, and which we'll probably play at this summer's concerts. Hope you like it."

There is speculation that Radiohead will issue a new digital EP as early as Monday, after the leak of a track online assumed to be a new song by the band.
Fan site At Ease reports that the track "These Are My Twisted Words" was posted on its message board, and it has since appeared on YouTube. According to At Ease, the source file includes the title "Wall of Ice" -- assumed to be the name of the EP -- and the release date August 17.
Radiohead, which does not have a long-term label deal at present, released its 2007 set "In Rainbows" via its own Web site on a pay-what-you-want basis for the MP3 and followed that with a full release in January 2008 via XL Recordings in the U.K and ATO/Red in the U.S.
In an interview with the Australian Friday, multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood said: "Traditionally we'd be looking for 10 or 11 songs and putting them together, but that doesn't feel as natural as it used to, so I don't know what we'll do. Maybe we'll find four songs that work together and we'll call that a release. I don't know. No one knows how to release music any more, including us. How to put it together, in what format, how long. We're in the dark as much as anyone, I think."
Radiohead is rehearsing for festival appearances including Leeds and Reading (August 29 and 30) in the U.K.
Last week it issued the digital track "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)," with proceeds going to the British Legion, the U.K. charity that supports the armed forces and its veterans. Harry Patch, who died aged 111 on July 25, was Britain's last surviving veteran of World War I.There is speculation that Radiohead will issue a new digital EP as early as Monday,... more
