Vinilica vol. 75 – Ibisco b2b Populous

Emanuele D'Angelo · 2 weeks ago · Music

Ragazzi is the scream of the new generation, between provincial limits and infinite possibilities, is the desire for revenge of a youth perhaps never so little understood: too fast, too mixed, so strong as to be scary.
Ragazzi is the awareness of a value, of a strength, of the possibility to create a new world, against disillusions, failures and global crises.

Ragazzi is the latest single released by Ibisco, a young artist born and raised in Bologna in 1995, who loves autumn and hates summer.
Just in what is his favorite season he decided to give us a big gift, giving us two versions of his new single.

In the alternative version, in the B side we could say he collaborated with one of the most eclectic artists of electronic music, Populous.
The Italian artist has made the song even more danceable, frivolous and carefree than it already is, adding its mixed sounds.

“When I heard that Populous was going to edit the remix of Ragazzi I was thrilled. A friend of mine made me discover it and together we went to listen to it live at the Locomotiv Club in Bologna in 2017. The thing that struck me, in addition to the primitive vibration with which the sound was soaked, was the great heterogeneity of his audience. When music becomes a powerful social aggregator it performs the most noble function that can be attributed to it. The work Andrea did on the track is extraordinary, I believe that the songs are unconscious manifestations of ourselves and that they help us to understand our deepest nature; in this sense his rereading of the track has added many missing pieces to the universe of knowledge that comes from it and that composes it. I could say he has managed to expand the house in which “Ragazzi” now lives”.

In the remixed track, Populous manages to transport the sounds into its musical universe without losing the narrative power of the words of the young Bolognese singer-songwriter, which from the notes of a smartphone written in the time cutouts of a precarious job, have become sharp verses, expertly produced by Marco Bertoni.

For the occasion could not miss also a shared playlist, with all their influences, but not only, also a sort of introspection of the single just released.
The first 11 songs belong to the Bolognese singer-songwriter Ibisco, immediately afterwards you find 10 goodies selected by the Salento artist Populous.
Good listening!

Benoit Lapray’s superheroes invade Paris

Benoit Lapray’s superheroes invade Paris

Emanuele D'Angelo · 3 days ago · Photography

Strolling a little romantically through the streets of Paris, Benoit Lapray had the brilliant idea of replacing the city’s monuments with the heroes of pop culture.

Superheroes, famous protagonists of science fiction movies and even cartoons clamorously take the place of the statues that adorn the French capital.

It is not the first time that the French photographer does such work, long ago he had imagined them far away from the chaotic metropolis, wandering alone between mountains and hills, see here.

“It’s a way to emphasize that these science fiction heroes are now part of the world’s cultural heritage,” says Lapray.

The project was created in collaboration with creative studio 95 Magenta.
A long and complex work, initially made on film, not using any digital camera.

Subsequently, the negatives were digitized and retouched, and then we added our superheroes, which we hold so dear.
Below, we leave you all the photos of Paris, which were captivated by all the heroes of Benoit Lapray.

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Collater.al Contributors · 5 days ago · Photography

The photographs of Roeg Cohen are intimate and seductive, talking about life, memory and eternity. His shots tell the most personal aspects of his subjects, they are enigmatic images full of meaning.

Roeg started photography at the age of thirty, but his artistic level is far from immature. He uses photography to express his creativity, it tells as much about himself as about those on the other side of the lens, it communicates independence, courage and boldness.

What Roeg Cohen seems to have with his subjects is an intense and sincere connection. The protagonists of his photographs communicate through body and eyes. They are immortalized in different situations and express opposite and complementary feelings: quiet, peace, silence but also tumult, tension and revolt.

His photographs evoke sensations that are difficult to express in words, which is why we let his images speak for themselves.
Look at a selection here, follow him on Instagram and on his personal website.

“I Giorni Necessari”, the lockdown through the shots of Monia Marchionni

“I Giorni Necessari”, the lockdown through the shots of Monia Marchionni

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Photography

How many days do we have to stay locked down? This is the question Monia Marchionni has heard her 5-year-old daughter ask dozens and dozens of times during the lockdown. This is the question we all asked ourselves, looking out of our windows into the silent world. It’s the question we didn’t know how to answer at first and then, over time, it became the question we didn’t want to answer.

The days we needed. This is Monia‘s answer, certainly more sensible than many others we have heard.

Monia Marchionni, born in 1981, is a photographer from the Marche region, from Fermo to be precise. After a diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts, a degree in Philosophy, a specialization in Contemporary Art History and work experience in the field of installation, she decided to dedicate herself exclusively to photography.

Since her first works, from the photographic series “Never Again the Fog in the Desert” taken in Chile and “Fermo Visioni Extra Ordinarie”, Monia has won several national and international awards.

Today, however, we want to focus on her latest project, which was born during the quarantine and which takes its title from the answer given to her daughter, “I Giorni Necessari” (The days we needed).

Through delicate shots, deliberately presented as diptychs, Monia Marchionni opens the doors of her house to us during those 56 days that it took to get the situation under control.

Like that of all of us, the photographer’s life was abruptly changed and the outside world became something to be seen, while the inside of her home was transformed into a new object of analysis of her art. The eye, and with it the lens, rest on family members, hands and faces, trying to tell a long period of waiting, boredom, fear, sacrifice, death, but also love.

It is precisely the latter, in fact, love for loved ones, a rediscovered love, which shines through more than anything else, and this suspended time and privations have made it even more essential.
