Artists Blu & Captain

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Italian Street Art grandmaster BLU unofficially opened CityLeaks Festival in June with a stunning large-scale mural at Cologne´s Hansaring. Located at one of the city´s busiest spots, the menacing head of a faucet haired medusa stares down on the passing traffic. To its left we can glimpse Street Art duo Captain Borderline realizing their mural. In immediate neighborhood to Cologne´s largest cinema palace their wall reveals the business of moving pictures as collective brainwashing. See their work in time lapse.

Eliot Lipp ~ Allston Massachusetts

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Wobble Wednesday started quiet and smooth with the ambience beats of Ali Berger. The body painting began while the live artist started her first canvas. The crowd moved closer to the stage as Berger’s set started to pick up. Berger controlled a lot of his music through Ableton Live as well as actually performing many parts of his music. His style had more expression and attitude than a typical opening DJ.

The wonder bar’s crowd was small at first but began to pick up once 11:30pm started to roll around. Ali Berger’s entrancing dub-esque style left on the right note for Eliot Lipp to take over and drop his electronic instrumentals into the mix. Eliot’s production bottomed out the dance floor subwoofers and welcomed the ready and willingly to start moving to his music. Couples took hands while others went solo and each person in the crowd exchanged dance moves across, to, and from each side of the floor. The crowd rallied for his slow backbeat rhythms that crossed the bar line and caused even the event photographers to accept a few moves here and there. Each member of the crowd enjoyed the other’s interactions without a single smiled unshared. Eliot’s style ran the gamut of tempos and feels which he delivered through his laptop, custom controller, and analog Korg synthesizer setup.

Eliot kept his set interesting by challenging the crowd with song after song of sequenced arrangements. By the near end of his set the Wonder Bar was lit up with an array of individuals wielding painted faces and alcoholic beverages. The body painting continued till the end of the night until the beautiful canvas’ were covered by clothing again. Needless to say Wobble Wednesday at Wonder Bar was yet another success.
