120617 ep. 30 with Gábor Kerekes,
visual artist from Budapest

A chance encounter with Hungarian artist Gábor Kerekes led to a collaboration at last night's Felix Music Night at Imperial College London. To the sounds of student bands and DJs, Gábor concocted liquid projections based on glycerin and food colouring, reminiscent of the heady experiments of the late 1960s.

Gábor is a graphic artist from Budapest, passing through London, destination Den Haag. His work explores the organic aspects of the mind and the forms of nature through photography, digital collages and liquid interactions on overhead projections (photo above). You can see his artwork on flickr or follow him on fb.

Tonight we talked about his methods and recent graphic experiments, which he hopes to one day connect with music in analogue synergy. It turns out our musical tastes a sizeable common ground, from psychedelics to post-punk, experimental electronics and hip-hop. Conversation also turned to the wonders of but does it float and the visionary CRT TV feedback experiments of Korean artist Nam June Paik.

120610 ep. 29 summer songs again

Someone should tell me term ain't over yet. Still celebrating the summer time with a dollop of lovely tunes to procrastinate to. From Vietnamese hip-hop to hispanic psychotropicalia, musical genius from the land of Chocolate and forgotten radio broadcasts from the City of Angels. All in all, a wonderful welcome for the sunny season. Nevermind the rain.
