Show of "Nosaj Thing & Aalto" at Lunchmeat Festival 2010 hold in MeetFactory = the best club and art space in Prague / Czech republic.
Romain Tardy alias Aalto spent 14 days before the performance in the first Lunchmeat's art residency. He prepared the stage design and unique visual show for Nosaj Thing. Small team of carpenters helped him to construct the wooden base, which was coveder by more than 500 polystyrene triangles.
Exile's "Population Control" is a trippy, mind-bending video scored by Samyiam, Dibiase and Free The Robots who all remixed the same track featured on 'AM/FM.' Inspired by Exile's "We Are All In Power" video, visual artist Greg "The Dude" Ponstingl created the video using thousands of still images and striking visual effects to make a boombox literally come to life. The result is a rather trippy experience, and if you are prone to seizures, look away.
When I first watched "We are all in Power," I was blown away. A year later, I was able to meet with Ex and start working on this video. This project gave me the chance to be experimental and work differently. Using 3 songs in one video was something that intrigued me because, in my opinion, the traditional "music video" is a way of the past. We need visual artists to think outside the box and re-invent the "music video."
