Solo Moonwalks, group Moonwalks, corporate Moonwalks, Lego Moonwalks, cat Moonwalks, ballet Moonwalks, video game Moonwalks ... Michael Jackson is inspiring people across the globe to move! Everyone I have shown this video to immediately tried to moonwalk too. At eternal moonwalk (by studio brussel) you can see the complete collection of Moonwalk video snippets (and contribute your own). (via wikinomics)
Here it is, the much anticipated official trailer for the documentary "This Is It" which chronicles Michael Jackson as he rehearses and prepares for what was destined to become the greatest music concert series of all time. The footage certainly looks impressive. A quote by Michael Jackson from the trailer: "This is why I write these kinds of songs. It gives some sense of awareness and awakening and hope to people."
Who says you have to kill a tree to make a musical instrument? Not Anna Kovářová, the student behind a Master Thesis at Konstfack that involved carving a "side-blown flute out of a living oak branch, while it is still attached to the tree." The music starts at 1:30 into the video. (inspired by notcot)
Since Sunday is a day to relax, I thought it would be a good idea to bring you a song each Sunday. The name of this Fresh Creation theme will be: Sunday Sound Spotlight. First musician making its appearance in the Sunday Sound Spotlight is Ryan Adams with the song 'Oh my sweet Carolina'. PS Should you know of any musicians/videoclips that really need to be played during the Sunday Sound Spotlight then let me know.
Gisteravond was het groot feest op de Parade in Den Bosch. Go Back To The Zoo knalde hun songs op het publiek af en die energie kwam binnen. Gevolg: Een springende menigte die de hits luid mee zong. Ik vond GBTTZ live...
This week the unofficial dutch fanbase of the Arctic Monkeys went live. The Arctic Monkeys are THE fresh creators of nowadays music. They love making music but they hate all the media attention that they're getting because of it. That explains why you rarely see them being interviewed on television. But luckily Reuters released this 8 minute video about them. Enjoy.
The story Bandcamp isn’t yet another place to put your music. Rather, Bandcamp powers a site that’s yours. So instead of ads for Sexy Singles Chat, your fans see your design, your music, your URL. You retain all ownership rights, and Bandcamp just hangs out in the background handling the tech stuff. Why this story inspired me It shows that a bunch of dedicated people were able to come up with a solution for musicians around the world to start selling music in a professional and affiordable (free!) way. They don't charge bands that are selling small amounts and take a percentage from the sales that bands make that ARE selling a lot. Seems like a very reasonable way to do business, I'd say. What I hope sharing this story will lead to I hope that more people will seize opportunities to get rid of old systems that are blocking creativity. A concept like Bandcamp proves it is possible to do this.
This week I posted a video in which students state their views on their generation. In this video you can hear a song that I had totally forgotten about: Young Folks. It's by Peter, Bjorn & John and it features Victoria Bergsman of The Concretes. The song really deserves to be in the Sunday Sound Spotlight.Young Folks Let's Call It Off Objects Of My Affection Last time in the Sunday Sound Spotlight: The Pangs
Friday... Time for some music. Here's a great song with a great video.
Azure Ray is an American dream pop duo, consisting of musicians Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink. They met at the age of 15 at the Alabama School of Fine Arts. Their sound is sparse and understated , with intimate lyrics, elements of alt-country and folk Americana, and occasional forays into minimalist electronica territory. Watch some of the Azure Ray music videos.New Resolution The Drinks We Drank Last Night We Are Mice Last week in the Sunday Sound Spotlight: Loney, Dear
Marc Broussard is a white man with a black voice. It gets up to the point where I'm watching his music videos and start thinking: "Okay, when is the actual singer going to appear." His music is a mix...
Here's a clip of Antonio Forcione playing 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine' live on acoustic guitar. Wish I could play guitar like this. Watch the video (especially the slapping part at the end!).

Today I am proud to present a great singer who is also living in the south of Holland, just like me. He's called Airto and he's definitely influenced by Stevie Wonder. I selected a live performance of one of his own songs and a few covers for you. Sit back and enjoy!Make This Thing Work I'm Gonna Find Another You (John Legend) In Love With A Girl (Gavin DeGraw)
Last Friday I watched the movie Juno. The song 'Anyone else but you' by The Moldy Peaches can be heard in it. It's a simple, little song that I quite enjoyed. So I thought it would be a good idea to share it with you. Enjoy!Anyone Else But You Nothing Came Out Lucky Number Nine Bonus: The Moldy Peaches at Juno premiere
Noah and the Whale is a folk rock band from London. The name of the band was created by mixing up the title of one of the band's favourite films, The Squid and the Whale and the name of the director, Noah Baumbach. The video of their time in Paris is certainly worth watching. You can tell they're having fun while playing music. Which is what it's all about.5 Years Time Shape Of My Heart Live in a Paris, France via meneertje confituur
