12.11. Beat The Silence Festival
The Düsseldorf-based film festival Beat The Silence is all about the live performance of musical soundtracks, set to classic silent movies. The programme offers a lively cross-section of contemperary visual arts: think Nosferatu meets DJ, Dziga Vertov meets Post-Rock, Man Ray meets VJ, Georges Méliès meets planetarium.
On Thursday, November 12, prep-piano duo Grandbrothers and visualists WARPED TYPE will perform an hour-long concert, celebrating the opening of Beat The Silence Festival 2015. The event will be highlighting short films by Fernand Léger, Dudley Murphy and Man Ray as well as the artists’ own work.
Grandbrothers - Neon
Neon is WARPED TYPE’s third music video for Grandbrothers, taken from the duo’s album release Dilation. Heavily inspired by the inherent geometric shapes found in black and white photography, the clip takes cues both from the energetic sound track and the fluent camera moves to set these shapes into motion. The video also pays hommage to some of our favourite pioneers in modern print and graphic design. Neon recently premiered as a web exclusive over at TSUGI Magazine, and had its TV premiere on 3Sat Kulturzeit.
Grandbrothers - Naive Rider
WARPED TYPE’s video for the brand new Grandbrothers Track, Naive Rider, just recently premiered as an exclusive over at FACT Magazine. It was featured on Stereogum and a video of the week at Intro Magazine. Naive Rider is the first upfront single of their album release, Dilation.
Grandbrothers - Arctica
Check out Arctica, our second music video for Grandbrothers, taken from the duo’s debut Dilation. This is Visual Music full circle: initially a visual for the stage show, the tangram geometry became part of the video, then found its way back onto the stage. Arctica premiered on XLR8R, was featured on Lowdown Mag and Stereogum and recently had its TV debut on BR Klassik, EinsFestival and ARD alpha.
WARPED TYPE - Darkbwoyy
Darkbwoyy is a colorful extravaganza of a Track, featuring WARPED TYPE visuals on a futuristic polygon stage design and set to forceful beats in an inspired collab with Markus Girrulat of A Minor Matter. Darkbwoyy features a full spectrum musical ensemble with live drums, two violon celli, double bass and live electronics. Watch Darkbwoyy now in HD on Vimeo.
Hauschka - Abandoned City - Stage
For Hauschka’s Record Release Concert at Radialsystem Berlin, WARPED TYPE delivered an inspired, minimalistic Stage design with tailored-to-fit visual content. A multitude of shows has since been perfomed on this setup, including shows at Brighton Festival 2014 and Berlin’s grand theatre Volksbühne am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.
WARPED TYPE - Photobooth
With their WARPED TYPE Photobooth, the visualist quartett takes a simple concept and turns it into a powerful interactive art installation. From each Band’s and the Festival Artwork, WARPED TYPE creates colourful, vibrant masks. All attending festival guests and artists are then invited to have their picture taken. The resulting pictures are reproduced on hi-res Screens or Beamers, or used in a VJ performance. All photos are uploaded to the Festival’s social media channels – to be viewed, liked, commented on and shared.
WARPED TYPE Photobooth is a rapidly set-up, immensly fun and interactive project between the visual artists and attendees of a music or arts festival. All pictures were taken in the WARPED TYPE Photobooth at Open Source Festival 2013.
WARPED TYPE - 3D Visuals
For the 2014 edition of Düsseldorf’s electronic music festival extraordinare, Open Source Festival, WARPED TYPE was given the opportunity to design visuals for the brand new Teehaus floor. They delivered stunning, beautiful shots in anaglyph 3D, and mixed it up with colourful, vibrant vector-style animation and a fresh approach to animated typography. To round off a perfect debut of the new Teehaus floor, every festival guest was given a pair of old-school, red-and-cyan 3D glasses.
