Reyna Perez has embraced the concept of digital collaboration with her self-titled EP. She recorded each song in Brooklyn on acoustic guitar at a home studio and emailed the tracks to producer Michael Maurice (Curio Sound) in Denver. Over the course of 2 months, Maurice mastered her songs into full fledged productions using Logic software and his own instruments. "I've given them a warm analogue sound, without using any actual analogue equipment; it's a testament to the times, and I'm very happy with the results," says Maruice.
The final mixes arrived via ftp on Friday, June 17th, the same day the iphone 3GS hit the streets. Video producer Ari Kuschnir, Reyna's fiancee, purchased the iPhone after a two hour wait, made shorter by listening to the tracks. Hearing the new music and playing with 3GS, he had an idea. Why not debut Reyna with the first iPhone music video? "It became clear that the phone's camera quality was good enough to shoot a music video. It seemed fitting for the project."
Over the next few days, the plan and the team came together. Within a week, through a series of collaborations much like the mastering of Reyna's EP, the video was complete.

Samuraigutarist recorded his cover of The Beatles’ “Here Comes The Sun” at a very slow tempo that lengthened the song to around 30 minutes. Then he sped up the video and audio 20x. The result sounds like a lovely violin version of the song.
In 1979, Roger Mainwood, just out of the Royal College of Art, created this wonderfully trippy animation for Kraftwerk’s “Autobahn.” It was a commission from the band’s record company but Kraftwerk had no input on the film, and Mainwood says he’s unsure if they even saw it. The fan site KraftwerkOnline tracked down Mainwood and […]
