1. BEFORE YOU WATCH THIS VIDEO, BE WARNED THAT THERE ARE IMAGES THAT MAY BE DISTURBING TO WATCH.

    *UPDATE: I'VE DECIDED TO GIVE ALL OF THE PROCEEDS FROM NEDA AND VOX TO UNITED FOR IRAN. TO Get VOX, NEDA AND TO SUPPORT PEACE AND LOVE IN IRAN: kawehi.bandcamp.com/album/vox

    Wasabi!
    First up off of VOX: NEDA. Neda Agha-Soltan was a 26 year old woman who died by a fatal shot to the chest by Iranian authorities during the 2009 election protests. Her death was captured on video by bystanders, put on the internet, and went viral around the world. Neda became the face of Iran's democracy movement - and the voice of women in Iran. An anonymous Kickstarter song pledger gave me free reigns to write about whatever I wanted - and after hours of research on NEDA, I didn't feel right about writing another silly love song. There are more important voices that need to be heard - and this time, I choose for it to belong to one woman: Neda.

    Everything about this video and song were done by Paul and I. The entire track is all vocals - everything you hear was a sound made by me. I wanted VOX to be simple - one instrument, one me. And the video - was shot with no money, no crew - just Paul and his one camera. We did the best we could - with the little we had - and I'm pretty happy with the outcome. Who says you can't accomplish anything DIY?

    I chose to include real footage in the video - and although it is very sensitive material, I thought it was important for everyone to witness. She is an inspiration to me and to us all as a human race.

    UPDATE: A bunch of people asked for me to post the lyrics...here they are:

    NEDA

    You know you're screwed when you're walking on shells
    and fire's burning like a demon from hell
    In your lungs, to your tongue

    When a teacher does his best to protect
    but still a bullet finds its way to her chest
    she said, "Burning, I'm burning!"

    Feel the earth rumble no one's safe -
    on the streets of Tehran

    You can take my eyes
    But leave your stones in your gardens
    Your rivers, your roads
    You can take my eyes
    You can claim that the way I dress
    is offensive to your God

    They want you gone and silent,
    declare you a martyr and let the streets run violent
    Do your best to comply
    a pension for your lies

    They said,
    "Neda, don't be afraid, don't be afraid"
    "Neda, stay with me, stay!"

    You can take my eyes
    But leave your stones in your gardens
    Your rivers, your roads
    You can take my eyes
    You can claim that the way I dress
    is offensive to your God

    I am responsible
    I know that now
    The laws are so simple;
    you let what you allow
    I know that now
    A voice should be heard
    You showed me why and how

    "Neda, don't be afraid, don't be afraid"
    "Neda, stay with me, stay!"

    You can take my eyes
    But leave your stones in your gardens
    Your rivers, your roads
    You can take my eyes
    You can claim that the way I dress
    is offensive to your God

    peace and love to all of you.

  2. SUPPORT MY NEXT PROJECT: kickstarter.com/projects/kawehi/robot-heart

    WAAASSAABBIIII!
    I wanted to do a song for myself before I got busy working on all of your TOY cover requests, so I decided to do one of my favorite Sheryl Crow songs - Carolina. It's very obscure - only being released on a soundtrack (can you guess the movie?) but when the tune first hit my ears years back - it resonated within me. I'm glad I finally got to cover it in a different way - and with toys, for that matter. In this song, I used: Disney CARS toy acoustic guitar, Pink electric guitar, Piano Cat, Toy Piano, Lollipop drum, bass and yep, raw Spaghetti noodles for drum brushes 'cause we couldn't find my real ones! FYI - spaghetti was made to be played with :D.

    There are only 3 days left to help me make music like this - there are limited cover pledges available - so if you want to hear me cover a song, make your pledge today before they run out! Also being added to the pledge prize list - the Disney Cars Red Acoustic Guitar (target purchase) along with the Pink Electric guitar. The TOY Piano and TOY Piano Cat have already been pledged for :).

    To make your pledge, head on over to: kickstarter.com/projects/kawehi/toy-by-kawehi-ep-vol-3

  4. Cliente: Patricia Moon

    Un mundo de personajes ciertamente siniestros, pero al mismo tiempo entrañables, desempleñando un papel concreto dentro de teatro que los contiene.

    Cada uno de ellos representa los males endémicos de una sociedad basada en la el miedo y la violencia como métodos de control.

    Arropar el imaginario de la artista Patricia Moon fue el cometido de este proyecto. Su tema musical, con reminiscencias a los cuentos góticos, abrió la posibilidad de construir un mundo hecho a medida de su música.

    Una artista con proyección, para la que el videoclip es un vehículo perfecto de comunicación para llegar al publico. Por ello poner todo el detalle y los medios tenidos y artísticos de este proyecto ha sido un reto que se rentabiliza en satisfacción por un resultado compartido por todo el equipo de producción.

    Como colofón a este proyecto fue el Premio al Mejor Videoclip que nos fué otorgado en el I Festival Primavera do Cine en Vigo en 2012.
