re-REX for this week!
The Regularity (#39) 05/14/11 by Dr. Gory (with a special appearance by RegularJOE) - I'm so glad to see a Regularity again! I like the mini-vids Joe's been releasing, but it's nice to have Dr. Gory back to take them from raw records to a full-fledged Regularity. Yay!
Le Petit Soldat (Added Vox) by Metaphorest - the combination of Metaphorest's vocals and suzyrene's piano accompaniment really brought this song to the next level. I love it and can't wait to see more videos for it now.
untitled by silentmelody - I love how silent melody remixed several records here (belcath1981, MoiSanom, iseeowls and Jalyse) to make this gorgeous remix. Of all the remixes to use MoiSanom's original work, this is probably my favorite so far.
Living Sound: The Vinyl Ad by pamagotchi - I believe pammy has a 2nd version out already, so this includes both the first and the most recent one. I love the idea presented here, and I think the potential for remixing is fantastic. Pammy's given us a great foundation to buil on here, and I can't wait to see what the community will come up with.
JOES ROCKING by Fernando Cruz - Great image for the Vinyl Art Collab by Marke. I've really enjoyed seeing Joe interpretations from all of the fantastic illustrators on hitRECord.
Everything is On Fire [Robo REmix] by Robo_J - love this remix of a classic hitRECord song by Robo_J. If you haven't checked it out already, you definitely should!
Rubber Stamp by Metaphorest - a great poem by Metaphorest. I'd love to see visuals added to it because her writing is just so full of wonderful images. A voiceover would be cool too.
The Death of a Shadow: Matchstick by Edward Shallow - Dark, yet strangely satisfying, this great animation is a macabre take on the Shadow collab. And I love that Edward encourages us to think of more ways to kill off shadows.
Shadows Children's Storybook by LittleRedRidingHood - another great contribution to the Shadow Collab. I like the idea of a physical book (and I love that the book is cut out in the shape of a noonday - hehe), and I think this has a lot of potential for remixing and refining. It may not even end up as a book, but perhaps as a story board for animators. There's a lot of possibility worth exploring here.
Collab of the Week:
We've had a lot of awesome collabs to work on this week: Hesher, the Vinyl Art Collab, the Spring Collection Ad Collab. But there was one collab created that I thought was really cool and maybe a little overlooked:
Proi did this amazing artwork on paper airplanes and then created a collab for people to make their own paper airplanes. This is fantastic. It isn't just physical, 3D art that you can hold in your hands; it's physical 3D art that you can THROW with your hands! :D Proi even created a record you can print you and create your own paper airplane with. I just think this has so much potential. Everyone can participate and it could be a lot of fun.
Please contribute your Album of RE-RECommends for the week of 5/15 here.
