Heeeeeeeeey folks! What’s up? It has been a while since my latest post. Quite true huh? Well, the point is that we have all been terribly busy taking care of exams at university (and talking about me, my Master’s Degree thesis. Yikes!), somebody has moved to a different city, Italy itself has been a MESS. We had no pope, no government, no police chief… Yes UK, we are following you. Anarchy in Italy… About time.
However, however, however… There are no excuses for not sharing the pearls of awesomess I have been collecting during this time. I was kind of waiting for something to push me sharing my latest updates and well, that something has hit me right this morning. Thank you blog secret lover, you made me defeat the lazyness monster!
But let’s stop procrastinating. The most awesome-st thing that is happening to me right now is that I AM IN NEW YORK. Bloody hell! Yes fellows, no jokes, after hitting London and Istanbul I am in the big apple! Here you are a proof that I am not fooling you!
A sweet view from Bladeru Manhattan
I don’t know if you have ever been here. Well, to be honest I had never been a fan of NY. The big city, the business, the hyper-activity of the people… Well, all these things are sweet, but I have never felt them on my strings. But once here, I realized that something was completely different from my idea of New York. MOVIES ALL LIE. Which is something strange for somebody like me. I use to see movies (and music, books, the arts in general) emphasizing about things, but what they do say about NY? If you ask me, they all lie.
Do you love this show huh? Well I used to love it until it simply became way toooooo looooong and sloooow
So, no folks, New York is not all flashing lights, junk food, the amusements and the oppurtunities. It’s not all white people in one side and then all the black people on the other side and then the asians (which FYI are a lot!). Shit no. New York is all these things together. New York has not an actual identity unless we consider its mashup of different people its real own identity. Think about it as a huge college party, where people of any kind are in. People, it is a friggin’ melting pot! And that is awesome.
To me, to see all these different people gathered in one city in the world makes it quite rare and interesting. I just wonder why the reality of things is so rarely told into movies, or television, or novels. New Yorkers, you might have the shining light of the VIPs (meh…) but people, you are a flippin’ constant mess of different cultures. That makes you cool. Think about it.
I am here since less than a week, but so far this is my impression. I might be wrong, but a part of me wishes badly to not be awakened from this unexpected state of things. But well, I have more than three weeks more to spend here, so I will keep you in the loop about anything new and/or interesting about my trip.
In the meantime… Some goodies!
Budapest Bár - Szívemben Bomba Van. A memory from my latest trip to Budapest. Shit, I am still in love with this stuff!
An AWESOME video clip I have found thanks to a friend of mine! Quite inspiring! (The preview is partially misleading)
Another cool video I have found. Simple, yet effective!
…And talking about simple but effective things. Look what I have done while here in NY. Yes! I went to the International Pillow Fight Day, yikes!
Come on man, seriosly? This is cheating!
But it is not over yet. Since I have tons of update, here you are another song (or should I say, a part of a musical?) I have lately found.
Wha-? Paris Hilton???
Die Hard Dracula, a movie I just must watch
See you soon, pals! -Lucky
PS: oh, our beloved Ivo Cactus Masnata has just got his degree in Architecture. PARTY HARD!
Hello guys! Even if I had to overcome a couple of technical issues, I am finally here to give some updates. First of All, Tester is almost done! You are going to enjoy a short but deeply silly clip of our work… Plus a new Behind The Scenes of all the filmmaking process, thank to our friend Gabriele Principato.
But there is more. The gang is going to start working more with its holophonic toys. Yeah, get ready to experience some new goodies. In the meantime let me suggest you the best holophonic shit made. Ever! Take your headphones and listen to Roger Waters’ The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking. It is sweet. It is superb. It is super cool! I happened to listen to it one night, unable to sleep well. Man, how a great experience.
Heeeeeey fellows! How is it going? It has been a while since our latest post. That because we have spent some good time traveling Europe (and yeah, cool places like Sziget Festival in Hungary!). Eventually we have start to work on a show which is going to be premiered on our Youtube channel. The name is TESTER and I would describe it as "the secret life of a man looking for true knowledge" and, yes, we are making it funny! It is going to be a show in Italian language, but we might consider to add english subtitles if there will be enough request for it :)
After that we will keep on working on some music stuff: experimental clips mostly. It’s gonna be awesome, trust me pals!
Btw, we have some goodies for you, some shots directly from the backstage of the show, taken by our friend Gabriele Principato. Here we go!
Getting ready for the shooting
Book slicing! Yikes!
Does anyone recognize this?
Fedis, our production assistant
The coffee test
Some creative mess
Stay tuned for me updates! And remember… The duck will be back!
Waiting for Morricone (Taken with Instagram at Arena di Verona)
Hey! I’m glad to announce you that Eva is back in pre-production, again! We’ve just started working on our second short movie, it’ll be somehow more traditional in look than DayDream, but mind-blowingly experimental in its plot and structure! In the mean time I’ve been playing a bit with the new gear we won this summer at a contest, yeah it took quite a bit to arrive but finally it did. I hope you’ll enjoy the track, I tried to use sounds and instruments in kind of a unusual way, especially the vinil-crackle sound that turned out to be somehow musical, but still disturbing. I’ll definitely try to put it in one of our next works, maybe as a theme for one of the main characters! The deep bass sound instead is a rhodes piano played on its lowest register. I was quite impressed of how deep and cinematic this sound can be, and the extreme-panning vibrato gives it a tense and suspenseful feeling I really dig. Well, it’s all for now, we’ll keep you informed on the news for the new short! Peace. MrW

Hey, what’s up? everything’s fine? Hope so! Here at the “Eva Coolness Factory” things are doing great! It’s a couple of days I’ve been experimenting some insanely intresting new stuff, one of which are HOLOPHONIC SOUNDS! Yeah, weird stuff as you can tell from the name! They basically work following the same concept of holograms, giving you an extraordinary illusion that the sounds you hear are actually “placed” in certain positions around you! All you have to do is to follow the instructions! So, check this track out and tell me what you think! Here are the instructions: You are going to hear someone walking around you, now: 1) wear a pair of HEADPHONES, any will be ok, in-ear, extra aural or any else. 2) try NOT to be in a too noisy environment! 3) CLOSE YOUR EYES and FOCUS on what you hear- Don’t be shy, I swear nothing will harm you and your ears, just close your eyes! 4) when you have listened to the full track WRITE WHERE THE WALKER PASSED, where he/she starts walking, what path does he/she walks around you, if he/she is close or far from you, at your righ or your left, in front of you or behind you! Remember, it WILL NOT WORK if you keep your eyes open! I’m experimenting for a sound design project so I REALLY NEED YOUR FEEDBACK TO IMPROVE THE EFFECT! Thanks! Peace, MrW
