Celloboxed

This video caught me off gaurd. I absolutely did not expect this dapper young cellist (Kevin Olusola) to go where he did with this song.

Yet another example of my preconceived notions of classical instruments being challenged.

Aloe Blacc blurs lines of conventions

This is a great version of Aloe Blacc’s “I need a dollar” that incorporates a number of beautiful elements. The sonorous classical arrangement further complimented by the artwork prominantly backgrounded.

Another example of classical instruments beautifully thrust into contemporary.

Honest advertising

Lots of ads these days use all kind of methods to deliver a kind of propaganda.  What if there was an ad that was entirely truthful about the effects of that product?  Would we be in a position to accept it?

Perhaps the alien aspect of the commercial is a bit of a stretch, but is this scene not being played out in coffee shops around the world?
