Or, in other words, I'm asking you (my loyal viewers) to step up and participate!
Check out our short video about how to join in the conversation.

She was fascinating.
I saw only the contours of her face, outlines of the shadows cast at soft angles by the moonlight. I was blessed from time to time, only by the long drag of the cigarette she was smoking: I saw her face illumed. The smoke escaping her lips, like an organism in somnambulant dance, sipped up into the ether of the dark hours above us; of the early morning.
I retired alone.
Now in daylight, I find myself chasing up what had gone, and what had died with the night. Mourning the life of a thrill that had lasted only the span between moonrise and moonset."

Today's 'random click' has turned into a surprising find. I rarely listen to Modeselektor due to how heavy some (if not most) of their stuff can be (listen to Black Block), but this neat two minute track is something else.

This waterfall, so precisely placed in the film as what I feel is a symbol of the two leading characters' relationship - mesmerising, of great depths, to lose one's self. This shot follows a moment in the film where the two characters, Ho Po-Wing and Lai Yiu-Fai take a road trip in search for the Iguazu waterfall. Their trip comes to a halt, and we see one of them walk away from the car. "Where are you going?" says Ho, as he remains with the car, a map spread out before him. The characters stand next to a busy highway, abandoning their car and map. Cars and trucks go by in haste as their relationship grows further and further apart.
What a great, great film.

I have been incredibly busy assisting the marketing team for the 1st Korean Film Festival in Australia (KOFFIA), as well as the odd intern job here and there. I've also got a job as a marketing assistant of some sort at a digital television wholesaler, at which I will start as an intern. Hopefully it will take me somewhere (preferably paid!).
In the meanwhile, I have been looking for experimental/sound art type of music, or soundscapes as inspiration for a new project. I found this rather neat track on Youtube.
It's very ambient, and possibly too busy with track layers for something I could work with. Nevertheless, I love the ambiance and peace it emanates. It kind of 'glows' for me.
