ART FOR MUSIC!

A New Collaboration and Coming Soon Release!

Today post is just a preview for this interesting project and a new collaboration. This project  at the moment still a work in progress but I love to share what we are working on.  This post feature the release of my  new watercolor painting!

This is a bigger painting than my usual size,  is a custom artwork  requested in a specific size which is 12 x 24 inches. This is the result of another great collaboration and very unique custom commission. I am happy that I can finally talk a little and reveal few details about this new beautiful project. During the month of November 2017, I was contacted by Electronic Music Composer  Sandy Bain aka “Nu-San” from Scotland, UK. Nu-San loves my art and already own some of my work. This time he was working on his new music album and had an idea. He asked me to create an “Original Painting” inspired by a “Gothic haunting style” in my own style that he wants to  use as the album cover for his coming soon new album with the title “Nu Nostalgia”.  Nu-San still working on some of the final tracks and I cannot give all the details at this moment because still a work in progress until the album would be released. As you can see the image of my painting isn’t too big and I have posted only one little close up photo, also they have a huge watermark on it for ©Copyright reasons since the album isn’t released.  For now I can only share this  preview post of my painting, I will share more in another post in the near future.

What a wonderful project!

I am so honored and grateful, thankful beyond words that Nu-San did think about my art to illustrate his music. I love music and love to support music artists with my art. I always wanted to create an artwork that would be illustrating a music album as a “Cover of an Album”, I am so happy that this wish came true. Nu-San discography include other albums but this one is the first that would be made in “Vinyl” and it is a dream coming true for Nu-San. I am so happy that we can share this achievement, I find it to be very special. Thank you Sandy for this great and exciting collaboration!

The watercolor painting that I have created, is going to be the “Cover” of Nu-San new music album and would and be released in “Vinyl and CDs” during the next few months or earlier. I don’t know the exact release date but I will write another blog post when it happens with more photos of the finished product and more info.

This project and watercolor painting would be also part of my Collection Series, check my Gallery  “ART FOR MUSIC” a series of artworks inspired by music artists reflecting my passion for music. In this series, I have created artworks using several media, traditional watercolor paintings, ink drawings, digital art, photo manipulation and any other media that will inspire my creations. At the same time this art series is also a feature here on my Blog for the music artists that I collaborate with.

Nu-San

Nu-San is a solo project and electronic music producer and composer from Scotland, UK. He has composed original chill out and dance tracks and creates  unique haunting sounds and techno music, that’s the way I can best describe the sound of his music.  I can’t wait to listen what he has created for the new coming album!

This is one of the photos of  “Nu-San” that inspired my Portrait for the album cover, you can see his face in my painting!

My painting is a watercolor and ink portrait in my signature style with a hint of Gothic and a light feeling of darkness. Nu-San asked me to include ravens birds, a graveyard scene, a castle and gave me the freedom to create. I enjoyed painting this atmospheric portrait while listening to Nu-San music to be able to deliver more in-depth the spirit of  Nu-San in my creation, we are very happy about how the painting turned out and now we can’t wait to see it as finished product.

A special Thank you, goes to the Band RiGNA FOLK  for the great idea and suggestion to me, to create this video as combination of their music with my art. And I am honored that they let me use their beautiful music as soundtrack to my paintings! Thank you so much  Viktor Nordir.
Who follows me for longer time knows that I love music, but also that I have a very specific and not so commercial taste and I love to introduce you with the bands I like or discover! I also have posted here on the Blog experiences attending live concerts, Interviews with independent artists and videos! I like to use my Art collaborating with music artists. I have created paintings and portraits dedicated to music artists as Fan Art! My collection is named “Art For Music”  as an independent artist myself, I love when we can support each other or I can support someone else dream.

This video happened magically while replying each other comments on Instagram!
Viktor, frontmen of the band had this idea, while commenting on my recent paintings and I found it to be a awesome idea that I had to bring it alive!
I think the song I chose is “Zone II” from their album “Astropolis” and it match greatly with my Art.

RiGNA FOLK is a band from Germany, we follow each other from a while now, I love their music and they love my art! I think is beautiful to cross paths!

RiGNA FOLK

They are a great indie band! I love their alternative, post rock music “Rigna Folk is a band that creates a parallel world. A rainy, dreamy world that, supported by music, is constantly changing and expanding: sound-painting like Sigur Rós, pictorially like Pink Floyd, as experimental as Radiohead”.  They produced several Albums and their discography is growing more with a coming very soon new album!

Recently they performed a great cover  “David Bowie, Space Oddity song” you can find it on their YouTube channel!

If you like this music genre, I really suggest you to check their music out!

Day 9 – Summer Tunes (The Twilight Sad) – Original Watercolor Ink Painting ©Carolina Russo

Today painting prompt is “Summer Tunes” this has been a very nice and fun prompt for me to  paint and illustrate in a comic cartoons 50’s looking style. This painting is inspired by the album covers of one of my favorite bands nowadays  Scottish  “The Twilight Sad” I don’t know the name of who created the original covers, I wish I knew to be able to give credit. This is my vision and reinterpretation combining two of their album covers together as watercolor painting with ink outline. If you are a fan of this band then you know exactly about these album covers! 😉 This painting it is also created as part of my Collection “Art For Music” it is also my second painting dedicated to this band. I love their music and it is for sure my go to Summer Tunes and all year round with few other amazing bands I love.

Music – Interview with James Radcliffe

My interview with Music Composer and independent Artist James Radcliffe.

img_1878
I am so happy and grateful that I was able to do this Interview!

Today I am very pleased to introduce you with James Radcliffe a wonderful multi talented Artist, a dear friend from the music world and part of our community.  James is an independent artist a music composer from the beautiful land of Scotland.

Thank you James for  your precious time doing this interview with me. I love to give the opportunity to get to know you and your art.

Let’s start with the questions:

For the reader that doesn’t know you and your music, can you please introduce who is James Radcliffe?

I am an independent artist based in Edinburgh Scotland. I make music, I write, I take photographs and perform live. In the last 4 years or so, I have built a grassroots social media following in excess of 100’000 people.  This is what allows me to make art as a living.

Your music has a very distinctive sound and style, when listening it brings you in far away places, almost out of this world. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt inspire you while creating? And how do you categorize your genre?

First, thank you very much, I take this as a great compliment.  It is hard to nail down a creative process, as much of it is a mystery.  I will say though, that there are two main phases: the creative phase and the craft phase.  The work is usually born from a kind of state of mind which is outside of time, when I am fully absorbed.  The craft is where I take the pieces of rock and polish them into something beautiful.  I cycle back and forth between these two until the work is finished.

You just released your new beautiful and fantastic Album ” Murder The Impossible” can you tell us your feelings and meanings behind it?

Murder the Impossible was a collection of tracks that I worked on in a very specific way in the studio.  It took me over a year to get them right.  Each of the tracks was aimed at a specific feeling, for example, the first track ‘World Enough and Time’ was aimed at the feeling of ecstasy I get from truly great music. One of the reasons it took me so long, is because I played all the instruments, including the cello, and did all of the studio work.

Murder The Impossible is the 5th genre-defying release from James Radcliffe.

Murder The Impossible is the 5th genre-defying release from James Radcliffe.


What is your creative Dream Project?

The thing that I am working on right now.  One of the great things about being independent is that you get to choose exactly what you want to work on.

What is happening at the moment? Are you working on any new ideas? Do you have in plan for any live gig?

A lot of stuff is happening right now.  I am generally always working, on new ideas and current work.  I think I am going to do something quite exciting and new for my next project, which I may release quite soon.  I am also playing with the idea of taking all my music off the internet.

Live performance will definitely be happening soon.  And I am looking into touring options as we speak.

This question is very personal and introspective, I love to ask this to artists. If you describe or picture your inner soul, how will you describe it? And what color it would be?

Like a roiling ocean.  And black.  Black as strong coffee.

Music – My Interview with Ewian Christensen

Ewian Christensen Digital Portrait ©Carolina Russo

Ewian Christensen – Digital Portrait created by ©Carolina Russo

My interview with Musician, Composer, AudioVideo and independent Artist EWIAN CHRISTENSEN.

Today I am very happy to introduce you with my dear friend musician and composer EWIAN from Germany. Some of you that follow my Blog remember last year when I have Featured Ewian. I love his music and often I shared his  videos and the release of his latest Album “We Need Monsters”. I also used Ewian’s photos last year to create a first Digital Art Portrait part of my Art concept “When Nature Meet Humans ” Ewian was the portrait #6. A couple of months ago I asked Ewian if he would’ve have been open to do an interview with me. And he kindly accepted! I am thrilled about this and I am very happy to be able to let you know him better through  this interesting interview and if you don’t know him and his music, this is an opportunity for you to discover a very talented,  unique Artist that has a wonderful soul and a kind heart. His music is not so common and maybe not for everyone but if you like it… you love it! The sound he produce in his music is  a sort of unique amazing dreamy music combined with beautiful words in his lyrics that definitely show Ewian intrigued inner soul.
The color digital Portrait above is my latest creation dedicated to Ewian. I used some of the photos that he sent to me for this interview and I created this tri-dimensional metropolitan image that I guess in a way represent Ewian latest work.

Thank you so much Ewian for allow me to do this interview with you and give the opportunity to others to get to know your Art.

Let’s get started! Here there are my five questions:

1. For who doesn’t know can you please introduce who is EWIAN?

EWIAN was founded by me, Ewian Christensen in March 2013 by the release of my debut EP ‘We Will Never Grow Old’ The artist name is an acronym and means ‘Water of life’ in a metaphorical sense. Basically I am an independent artist, born in Latvia and grown up in Germany. Though I release my records (mostly) via Timezone records, my work is not under the influence of any record label, management, or other instances in order to guarantee the authenticity of my art to myself and all consumers. Beside my debut I published one single (‘Voices in your head’, 2013) and two albums (‘Good Old Underground’, 2014; ‘We Need Monsters’, 2015).

cover_weneedmonsters

Album: We Need Monsters’, 2015

I compose and produce all music and videos almost entirely by myself. From time to time, I collaborate with other musicians, so far with Fifi Rong (England, song: ‘When I Was Dead’), Alien Hand Syndrome (Austria, song: ‘Zampano’), Slack Armada (U.S.A., song: ‘Looper’), and at the moment: Plike (U.S.A.,’VAST’).

2.  Your music has a very unique sound and style and is categorized as “Alternative, Post-Rock”. Can you describe your creative process and what prompt and inspire you while creating?

Thanks. I already mentioned in other interviews that I just can’t help doing music. The transformation of inner cognitions, ideas, aspirations, wishes, fears and so on into art serves the maintenance of my mental healthiness. Simultaneously, I have the feeling that I can wrap these inner concepts into a shell which could be tangible for (at least a part of) my recipients. And at that point this non-egoistic part of intellectual creation comes into play, whereby I can give something back. The creative process itself rarely precedes the way I expect. Sometimes I work very methodical, sometimes I just have some kinds of scintillation, maybe one can draw a comparison to the work of a crazy scientist.

3. What are you working on right now? Any new project?

Absolutely. You and my newsletter recipients already know that the third EWIAN album is highly likely to be released in spring 2017. As I mentioned above, I am working also on a collaboration with Mad Madam Em (known as Plike) for the song VAST.
And I can say, that’s not all! You can expect more for 2017: a special project, maybe my most costly so far. I guess 2017 will be MY year? This is a screenshot of the video I produce at the moment for the song VAST:

VAST - Ewian

Song VAST – Screenshot from the new video produced by  EWIAN

 

4. What is your creative Dream Project?

To be honest… to shoot a movie.

Ewian Christensen

5. This question is personal and introspective, If you describe or picture your inner soul how will you describe it? And what color would it be?

I guess I ́m a lone wolf of sorts. Furthermore peaceful, queer, and pathetic. My perception is mostly abstract, I firstly see the common features of all things and their interactions, not the differentiating ones. This helps me doing my art, but at the same time it is complicating my daily routine. I am fascinated by reoccurring patterns in nature like fractalistic structures. This mode of perception explains my spiritual vain. I always had a drive for explaining the unexplained and doing things that (apparently) no human else did before. I love to grapple with dystopias and utopias and to become lost in excessive thought experiments. If I’d be a painter, my art would be surrealistic. But I lose the thread, so: The color that would describe my soul the most is definitely a dark blue.
