The Sheepdogs / Made of Imagination

This is the second video we produced for MTV and Sony Xperia, and it features The Sheepdogs! I’m so stoked they were down to be a part of this project!

We switched it up a bit this time, instead of having The Sheepdogs perform with homemade instruments we paired them up with award-winning Afro Cuban pianist Hilario Duran and drummer Reimundo Sosa so they could explore a new sound together. The results were AMAZING. I wish they’d all do a whole album together!

Hopefully this video gets you stoked to spend the weekend building instruments and exploring styles of music that you normally wouldn’t! Your submissions to our homemade instruments project have been amazing so far! I’ll be posting a gallery of submissions shortly!

If you wanna get involved jump over here.

Sunwheel Made Up of Hundreds of Gold Plates

Moradavaga9

Portuguese-Italian collective Moradavaga have built a shimmering sunwheel for the annual Festa de São João do Porto (Festival of St John of Porto) in Portugal. Measuring eight meters in diameter, the piece is the result of hundreds of gold plates, fitted together in such a way that they move independently according to changes in wind and light, as well as rotations manually controlled by passersby. See more images and video of the reflective installation below!
