We are so extraordinarily pleased with our next instalment of this sound experiment. Firstly because we’re on week 5 and everything up till now has been spectacular! Secondly; the two artists showcasing this week are Gertjie Besselson and Jacques Du Plessis from Mr Cat and the Jackal.
Dave Meinert focuses on performance and character-based work across all visual narrative media. His award-winning international work for clients including Coca-Cola, Red Bull, Nando’s and Proctor & Gamble, music videos, documentaries and personal work has made him a regular feature on Vimeo Staff Picks, Huffington Post, BestAdsOnTV, FastCompany, Shock Mansion and several others. He is known for his ability to make work go viral. Rather than talk about understanding the future of content, Dave is one of the filmmakers out there creating it. We’re honoured to screen such prominent film-making & had a chat with the accomplished director…
Ladies & gentlemen, meet the classically trained & classically gorgeous local Cellist, Dorette Roost, the third artist to feature in this year’s Sweet&Sound Experiment.
Our weekly audio adventure, conceived & curated by Sound Station Studios, is nothing if not original considering how it showcases musicians from such disparate disciplines. First up we had Naresh Chauhan on Sitar, who shared the philosophies and intricacies of Indian music culture. The next episode introduced digital demigod Nikolai Athiros on keys, whose musical background is rich with late night gigs, underground bands and explosive live venue performances. This next instalment is yet another departure form ‘the norm’ given that Dorette’s musical background us uniquely classical with a wealth of experience and training garnered from the purest of musical heritage…symphonies, operas and orchestras.
Our second artist to be showcasing his talents and layering over the skeleton track is the very musical:
We’re honoured to introduce the first of 5 audio-artists whose talents we’ll be showcasing this season… Nauresh Chauhan will mesmerize with his Sitar as he lays down the first skeleton track of the Sweet&Sound Experiment.
