Homemade Piano

Homemade Piano
People have been pointing me to some really unique music performances and some amazing homemade instruments like this one by Harm Goslink Cooper spotted over at Craft. Thank you @Nateene for the link! This isn’t a submission to our project but I wish it was! What a beauty!

If you come across any videos or links that will inspire people as they work on their instruments for our “Made of Imagination” project you can tweet it @Booooooom and use #mtvbooooooom hashtag, or leave a comment on our Facebook status.

We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.

Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm


“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision.
