Psychedelic Miles Davis

29 Jun

A 1980s track by Miles Davis, mixed with 1960s psychedelic footage works surprisingly well together. The creator of the video writes that he made this mix because Davis’s Bitches Brew (1969) is one of the most psychedelic albums ever, and I have to agree.

AYA: Awakenings is a narrative documentary into the world and visions of ayahuasca shamanism, adapted from the cult book ‘Aya: a Shamanic Odyssey’ by Rak Razam. By blending narration directly from the book with video footage, interviews with practicing curanderos, samples of traditional icaros or magic songs, photographs and cutting edge special effects, Aya: Awakenings reproduces the inner landscape of the visionary state in unprecedented detail, invoking a spiritual awakening in the viewer.

A psychedelic love video

22 Jun

A video which was done by a friend for our friends’ wedding which took place yesterday, in the longest day of the year. The voice in the background is the groom singing “I love you”. I loved the shooting style, which uses the simple technique of suddenly pointing the camera towards the sun or the illuminated sky again and again, stunning the camera with light and achieving a special transcendent quality, which transforms the singer’s words into a proclamation of love to the sun and the universe itself. The gaze, which is directed towards the sun again and again from various settings in the Israeli environment, makes this into a love song to the sun who is with us everywhere radiating its glowing light. Beautiful.
