Ideas and Inspiration

This short video was done for the Collective Expo called SURFCITY taking place in Barcelona from June 27th to July 4th.
The idea of confronting two antonyms like surf and the city was quite challenging, but a very rewarding process indeed, it gave me the chance to explore and dig deeper into the rythms and flows of the two opposed worlds. We, as surfers, live on the edge of chaos. Gray, wild, organized chaos in the cities where motion and noise is king. Blue, white primordial order in the ocean, where everything goes back to the origin.

The music used belongs to the soundtrack of the fantastic CyberPunk anime Film Akira, and the song KANEDA seem to fit the idea perfectly. The sounds that Geinō Yamashirogumi created to compose the soundtrack mix natural elements and synthesized instruments, both extremes of human nature.

Apart from that, the lyrics to this magnificent song, seem to fit the idea too...
