Alter Computerschrott spielt Radioheads „Nude“ - echt jetz!

Gepostet vor 8 Jahren, 1 Monat in Misc Music

Das Video fängt ziemlich lahm an und ich dachte mir auch erst: och nö. Aber nach 1:30 Minuten wird das ganze dermaßen unwirklich, da spielen tatsächlich ein Scanner, ein ZX Spectrum, ein Nadeldrucker und zehn olle Festplatten „Nude“ von Radiohead. Kein Scheiß. Das Ergebnis ist das wohl weirdeste und spukigste Radiohead-Cover, ever! Und wie abgefahren klingt eigentlich ein Scanner als Bass? 8-Bit-Digital-Analog-Cover... oder sowas.

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don't get any" I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

It doesn't sound great, as it's not supposed to.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-86 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 4c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX

[update] Creative Review hat ein Interview mit James Houston.

On guitar, Mr Sinclair Spectrum. On drums, Epson Printer. And let’s not forget the legendary HP Scanjet on bass. We interview student James Houston, whose brilliant Radiohead video has been causing quite a stir…

James Houston is about to graduate from the Glasgow School of Art’s graphic design course. The above video is his final project, brought to our attention by Zip Design’s David Bowden (many thanks David).

Houston posted the video up just under a week ago. He’s since had thousands of emails, an offer of a record deal and Radiohead have even put the video up on their own site. “This was a wee video for Uni that I edited in my bedroom with my dog at my feet and now it’s grown out of control,” says Houston. He explains the project to CR:

“I made the video as a final piece for my degree show. It’d been an idea which was burning for a while, so the actual execution of it only took around a week, although there were a few all-nighters. It was such a tight deadline, as I also had the rest of my degree show to finish in that time too.”

“When In Rainbows was released, the song Nude brought back this recurring idea of mine, as it was a perfect fit. Luckily, a few weeks later Radiohead launched the radiohead remix contest, which supplied each of the elements (bass, vocals, drums etc) of Nude, as separate unmixed audio files to play around with. I couldn’t believe my luck and started getting to work.
