Over the past months I've been working with Australian photographer Ray Collins to bring his amazing oceanscapes to life in the form of cinemagraphs, a blend between photography and video. Each cinemagraph is created from one of Ray's stills, and sets it in infinite motion, making a unique moment in time last forever.
These cinemagraphs inspired André Heuvelman from the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra to get together with pianist Jeroen van Vliet to record a very moving custom soundtrack, which I combined with a selection of the cinemagraphs.
Hyper-Reality presents a provocative and kaleidoscopic new vision of the future, where physical and virtual realities have merged, and the city is saturated in media.

"Grown Up" is a new track from Fool's Gold's own Danny Brown. It's the autobiographical origin story of a daredevil MC, chronicling his rise from a misfit pre-teen battling in the lunchroom to the radioactive rap hero he is today. Over a hypnotizing beat from FG label mate and fellow up-and-comer Party Supplies (and a scratch chorus from DMC champion DJ Shiftee), "Grown Up" is the perfect showcase for Danny Brown's corkscrew flows and poet's eye for detail.
