Punk As Fuck: Steve Gullick

Steve-Gullick-Camera

One of my first art books was Steve Gullick’s pop book number one. Especially his concert photos display some kind of immediacy that got me hooked every since.

This short film and interview was taken at the tail end of February 2013, just before Steve’s ‘Punk As Fuck’ exhibition opened in London. Showcasing work taken between 1990-1993, this documents some of the preparation work as well as some of the h istory behind the images. – vimeo.com/visionincisionfilm

The Only Record Store in Mauritania

We happened to be in Nouakchott, Mauritania while chilling in Africa so we decided to stop in at the country’s only record store, Saphir D’or. Turns out it rules! We chatted with Ahmede Valle, shop proprietor and seasoned DJ, about record collecting and the unifying powers of music.

For the record

A expedition undertaken to discover, learn, meet and document the ideas and people behind the controls of vinyl record production.

Recorded over 6 weeks, travelling through Germany, Switzerland, Austria and the UK – For The Record exposes a number of notions about why vinyl is such an indelible medium and how it continues to remain popular in the the face of opposing format change. – vimeo.com

Vinyl, VHS, Tape and Film

We live in a digital world that gives us all the media we could possibly dream of at the click of a mouse, yet many people miss the old school physical formats from our past. Listening to vinyl and cassettes allows us to connect with music in a different way than MP3s. VHS and 8mm create visual aesthetics and atmospheres that are difficult to replicate in digital video. And the surprises inherent to analog instant photography help embed an organic quality to the recording of our memories. The challenges these retro formats present to capturing and experiencing media actually enhance our appreciation for the sound or image, making the art we love a bit more intimate, and real.

Flying Lotus – Layer 3

Our new mini-documentary peeks behind the scenes of Flying Lotus’s new live audiovisual extravaganza, ‘Layer 3’ – which the Academy was proud to assist with developing in support of the ‘Until The Quiet Comes’ tour. Made with the help of visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, the trio have devised a method of transporting FlyLo into outer dimensions using two transparent scrims and interactive front and rear projectors, conjuring nothing short of the acid-fried Space Odyssey “Stargate” scene.
