LOS présente un clip pour Christmas in D (Filmed, directed and edited by Gregory Clapperton)

Le groupe indie rock québécois LOS a fait paraître en octobre dernier son excellent Big Surf, un album initiateur que l’on a eu la chance de vous présenter en exclusivité. Le groupe revient aujourd’hui à la charge avec un tout nouveau clip pour Christmas in D, juste à temps pour les fêtes.
Alors que leur clip précédent les plaçait au coeur de l’Autodrome Saint-Eustache, on a cette fois affaire à une esthétique complètement différente. House band d’une réception de taille réduite, les membres y assistent impuissants à une querelle autour d’une dame qui se résoudra dans la danse.

Jazz – 100 photos pour la liberté de la presse

RSF s’associe à Magnum Photos pour un album consacré au jazz.
Depuis ses débuts, le jazz, surtout live, captive l’attention des grands photographes. Des éclats de musique dans la pénombre des clubs aux silhouettes fantomatiques des petits matins, RSF et Magnum Photos rendent hommage à toutes les lumières du jazz.

La sélection unique de photos qui compose le portfolio met l’accent sur ce qui constitue l’essence de cette musique, l’improvisation, la collaboration et l’innovation, à travers le regard de grands photographes de l’agence Magnum Photos : Guy Le Querrec, Dennis Stock, Leonard Freed, Burt Glinn, Robert Capa, Philippe Halsman et des archives exceptionnelles de la Collection F. Driggs. Chacun a su rompre avec une certaine esthétique nostalgique et léchée, toute en volutes de fumées et contrastes accentués, pour imposer un autre regard, décentré, intime, frondeur, complice.

StarBowie2During his long career, David Bowie knew some great loves. One of his greatest inspiration was undoubtedly: the universe. Bowie had a special fondness for everything that had to do with the universe. Ziggy Stardust, the album that was both commercially and artistically one of his greatest achievements, characterized him even as an extra-terrestrial rock star.

David Bowie | Style File Gallery

David Bowie is unarguably fashion’s king of self-invention. Mod teenager, hippy with dishevelled curls, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Thin White Duke – Bowie changed his style more dramatically than any other musician in history. His transformations brought about seismic cultural shifts, changing the definition of what it meant to be a popular rock star. For Bowie clothes were a way of projecting self-expression, a powerful tool in communicating individuality at its most extreme, glittering and creative.

Frame Within A Frame | Dream Within A Dream

While playing with composition, you’ve probably come to understand the notion of a “frame within a frame.” It’s interesting how many opportunities there are for framing the scenes around us, and yet they often go unnoticed. Maybe it’s a plain open window with a view of the mountains or the frame of the glasses that reveals interesting bug life on an old wooden table. Options and opportunities are limitless, and all around us. Grab your camera and look around in search for some “natural” frames. For starters, take a look at what we’ve found:
