Bells, Whistles, Smoke and Mirrors

If you missed the Celestial Son show at Dansehallerne, or if you want an opportunity to catch the show again, March 25th is that day. You can get tickets here. This promises to be a great evening. Franklin Zoo support, and visuals by Lasse Hoile and myself, with contributions from the theater group Tidsrum. There will be full screenings of the Flow of Creation, Deathwish, Divide and Conquer and others. I am delighted to contribute to the show, and it is highly recommended to catch Celestial Son live.cropped-laura-flow-header-web-1.jpg

The Flow of Creation is out Today

We’re very excited to release the Flow of Creation video today on Halloween. The film originally premiered as a live visual for Celestial Son‘s concert on May 19th in Copenhagen this year. It was a particular treat to experience Celestial Son live, and see all the visual works presented at their show. The Flow of Creation was shot entirely in Stop Motion, and parts of the opening sequence of this film first appeared in Kilt Spirit, and has been expanded to the present film. A few shots in this film also previously appeared in the Figment Notebook, which we hope to release in the not too distant future. I am as always very lucky to have such amazing collaborators: Laura Beckmann, Chris Frandsen, Kindred Lansdown, Ted Haler and Cora Ripatti all made incredible contributions to what is often a painstaking process in shooting these stop motion works. And of course creating this film with Celestial Son’s amazing music is always a privilege and a wonderful collaborative experience. This is our fourth collaboration, and I am particularly excited about releasing this video to this epic music track. You can see the film below. Dedicated to F, in memoriam…

CELESTIAL SON LIVE VISUAL SHOW

Thursday May 19th, 8pm

Dansehallerne
Pasteursvej 20 1
1778 København V
Press Release from Celestial Son, on facebook and elsewhere:

”On the 19th of May at Dansehallerne‘s big stage we will play what undoubtedly will be our biggest and most ambitious show ever implementing live shadow theater, an incredible light show and insanely innovative visuals by some of the most praised and skilled international directors around today.

It is really a dream coming true and I can’t wait to show you what the team is working on behind the scenes. It is going to be an absolute stunner of a concert and I’m thrilled and honored to work alongside such talented people – among other the award winning L.A. based director Karim Ghaghwagi (Trentemøller, Efterklang and Kúra) who’s making visuals specially designed for this evening. The likewise internationally praised director Lasse Hoile (Opeth, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson….) will also bring his magic to the screen and behind the curtain members from the aspiring theater group Banyan will act live in a beautifully constructed shadow theater show.

There will only be a limited number of numbered tickets available to this special show, so if you wanna be sure to grab a ticket then don’t hesitate to follow this link:”

To the above from Celestial son, I just want to add that other press releases, particularly one on the venue’s own page, mention that I will be the evening’s VJ. While I will be at the show, and thrilled to be there, and excited to experience Celestial Son live in concert, Lasse Hoile and myself are leaving the VJ’ing in the capable hands of Jeppe Sølling, who will also contribute exciting visuals of his own.

I want to thank Laura Beckmann, Chris Frandsen, Ivan Hansen, Rasmus Sjøgren, Cora Ripatti, Kindred Lansdown and Ted Haler for their incredible performances featured in the films and music videos in the show.

This promises to be an exciting, very special night, and I look forward to seeing you there!
