De Pin Up Club - Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep (zOoTiMe shOrt ediT) On this video edit: I used "The Very Eye of Night" (1958) by Maya Deren: The High Priestess of Experimental Cinema The movie was a collaboration with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet School. The film was beset by problems in its production and carried with it a heavy weight of expectation. A shimmering constellation of stars established the background for negative images of figures resembling Greek Gods superimposed on and magically transported along the milky way. Deren called it her 'ballet of night', an ethereal dance within a nocturnal space that focused on the spectacle rather than the narrative. Ito collaborated on the soundtrack using tone blocks and bells, recalling the trance rhythm of Meshes of the Afternoon. Prioritizing enchantment over interpretation, The Very Eye of Night proved to be Deren's most controversial and misunderstood film. Eleanora Derenkowsky April 29, 1917, Kiev, Ukraine / October 13, 1961, New York, New York, USA For more information on this wonderfull artist the following link gives a nice portrait; http://sensesofcinema.com/2002/great-directors/deren-2/ On "De Pin Up Club"; (info and review of his ealier 2013 release http://www.beatport.com/release/go-funk-yourself-ep/1155922 ) Josef Van Gallen, the name behind De Pin Up Club. The project name comes from a very famous 80s dutch TV show ; it was in fact, a terrible soft pornographic show that aired only once a month and featured music videos with half naked woman jumping around next to swimming pools or exotic locations. When Josef decided to start a project with 80s influences there was no doubt in his mind about his alias. Josef love for vintage drum machines and analog synthesizers soon became compositions that lean heavily on funk, disco and house of gone times but always with fresh ideas and not trying to repeat music history but merely quote it in his songs. In his first record on Discobox De Pin Up Club drops an awesome three-track EP that will sure blow the mind of all funky nu-disco lovers. Go funk yourself opens the EP with a fantastic groove built using retro synths, disco stabs and the infectious vocoder : its all about funk ! Next track Gloria keeps the same vibe using an even more fat bassline, synths and a vocal sample. Rounding the release, The city strut goes spacey in an italo-disco bomb with analog bassline and heavy synths. zOoTiMe Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008210402406
