Eadweard Muybridge‘s vision never stops to tickle artists and scientists. No matter of what professions they are: animators, filmmakers, photographers or dancers. Every serious study on movements, motion and locomotions simply starts with his work.
A true master in landscape photography, Muybridge has managed to capture the most trickiest landscape on Earth, and that’s the body in motion.
I’ve dug out few documentaries about composer and artist John Cage covering his life and music, I think most people would find highly recomendable… Needless to say in what amount Cage has influenced contemporary music scene, media art and, of course, modern dance.
… and these films are John Cage: I Have Nothing to Say and I Am Saying It (1990) by Allan Miller, Peter Greenway: ‘Four American Composers (1983) – John Cage, The Making of One11 by Henning Lohner (1992), Opus 20 Modern Masterworks: John Cage by Klaus Lindemann (2006) and John Cage: In Love with Another Sound (1992) by Miroslav Sebestik.
Dubstep is certainly one the most exciting music genres that has been produced on the music scene in the last decade… Burial is my favorite, no doubt… Therefore, I’ve dug around the web for some documentaries that cover dubstep, and here they are: Dubstep (2006), ‘Dubfiles – Dubstep Documentary’ (2008), ‘Dubbed Out In Bristol’ (2009) and ‘Living Inside The Speaker’ (2010).
