Portrait Of A Ghost Drummer
Ghost Drummer is a multidisciplinary project that explores graphic qualities in process of playing on a drum kit. Motion-captured movements become a visual map over a time revealing fragile rhythm structures and invisible notations behind energetic instrumental solo. ‘Portrait of a Ghost Drummer’ expands the understanding of drummers activity from purely auditory experience to spontaneous visual performance.

I have designed something for the next FLOODIT

It should be a great night.
The deal is you can bring along anything to be printed on and you can choose from a bunch of artists who will pull the screen for you right in front of your eyes.
Hold tight for a forthcoming collab and interview with Cei Willis. In the mean time, check out this extremely talented dude’s work here. Couldn’t recommend more.
Space Cadet Headphone Concert
Space Cadet is the latest graphic novel from Ninja Tune’s Canadian scratch DJ Kid Koala.
The 132-page work, drawn entirely on etchboards, tells the story of an astronaut and her guardian robot. When she blasts off into outer space on a solo mission our robot hero is left to mope alone before the pair a reunited for a bittersweet finale.
The book is accompanied by a soundtrack - a ‘still-picture score’ - composed by Kid Koala, with different tracks to be played during different sections of the book, so the lullaby-like piano-and-bleep compositions track the moods and emotions of the story.
The trailer for the event can be seen here:
Kid Koala will be launching the book in the UK with the Music To Draw To event at the Red Gallery, London EC2, on 13 September.
Kid Koala - Space Cadet is release by Ninja Tune on 19 September, priced at £18.
