City of Satellites || Machine is My Animal (Tin Manzano remix) from Daniel Principe on Vimeo.

TIN MANZANO’S re-working of the title track from CITY OF SATELLITE’S debut album MACHINE IS MY ANIMAL weaves and loops the original’s guitar hook amid electronic beats and surging, breathy textures. The result is a gorgeously seductive instrumental, in which restraint and space are as alluring as the sounds blooming across the stereo field.

The track is taken from the forthcoming album Remixed, released on 27 October, which also features remixes by Manual, Slow Dancing Society, Jatun, M-13, Tim Koch and Syntaks. Download the track for free at the Hidden Shoal Store:

Dry Bones from danDifelice on Vimeo.

This project was a collaborative effort that spanned countries & time zones with several artists working long hours to finally put this piece out. The passage comes from an Old Testament prophecy, taken from Ezekiel 37. Not only is the text extremely descriptive and visual, lending itself to beautiful imagery, but show that where there is death and exile, hope and life can be found.

Dry Bones would not have been possible without the extremely talented artists with loads of patience, who I had the privilege of working with.

We shot the piece entirely on the 7d and post work was done in c4d and Nuke. The project started in April with boards & CG dev, we shot in early June outside of Las Vegas, and spent June through October refining the CG as well as the composite, sound design, and color.

Dry Bones started off as a personal project of mine, but had it not been for Adam Devizia & the A/G picking up DB and funding a significant portion of it, it’s possible the project would have not taken flight.

Special thanks to:
Michael Jones & Glenn Stewart for your collaborative efforts, and Justin Jackson for use of your truck.
