Fuji & Mika #6 — The Stubborn Face of Matter

A little over a week ago, my friend Fuji challenged me to write a song using exclusively items from my kitchen. This was an incredible opportunity for me to mesh two of my greatest passions — music and adventure!

In the video below i talk a bit about my process throughout the challenge, presenting the results at the end. If you just want to hear the song, it starts at 2:35 ūüôā Enjoy!

In the video i mention my partial update a couple of days into the process, and also a detailed description of my backpacking kitchen¬†— just follow the links!

Fuji and i have been challenging each other throughout the month of October to experiment with different habits and create something new every week — if you’ve missed it, we explain the idea in¬†Fuji & Mika #0 — Creative October Challenge. Our next challenges to each other will be posted tomorrow!

Fuji & Mika #4 — fiction_Extract_test1.0

This is one of the things Fuji has been working on in his early mornings! If you have no idea what we’re talking about, check out¬†Fuji & Mika #0 — Creative October Challenge.

In Fuji’s own words:

“I have a great admiration for the cinema, sometimes I see a clip, and I want to watch that five seconds over and over and over. My entrance into video editing is of course as a novice. A beginner, as I try to figure out what does this do, and this. I also bring my sensitivity as a choreographer into it. Repetition, variation, nuance, contrast‚Ķ Always fun to put knowledge into use in new medias. If you are aware that you know nothing, you always learn something new :)”

Thanks for sharing, Fuji — knowing a bit about your process makes me appreciate it a lot more ūüėÄ

Fuji & Mika #3 — Mika’s First Few Days

I’ve been enjoying this quite a bit myself — especially the unexpected opportunity to make some music ūüėÄ Not many people know about my life’s first significant fork between music and mathematics 16 years ago (almost to the day) — while i’m probably a musician in about half the multiverses, in this one i don’t even have a single conventional music instrument at home! So, i guess i’m also glad Fuji asked me to make music from the kitchen ūüėČ

Not Edited Yet #13 — More Cycling in Tiraspol!

A bit more cycling in Tiraspol, from my pleasantly uneventful time in Transnistria in May ’17 on my way by bicycle from Odessa to Chi»ôinńÉu.

This was actually my very first video experiment with my then recently acquired action camera — i learned pretty quickly that helmet mounts don’t yield the best angles :-p

Not Edited Yet #12 — Cycling in Tiraspol

Tiraspol must have been the most pleasant city to cycle in and out of — it has so little traffic that it almost feels like a village! — but with much smoother roads ūüėÄ

I had a pleasantly uneventful time in Tiraspol, through which i passed with my bicycle in May ’17 on my way from Odessa to Chi»ôinńÉu. You may read the full account of my three days in Transnistria here.

Fuji and Mika #2 — Fuji’s 1st Day

Glad to see my friend Fuji has enjoyed waking up early and playing with the camera — that’s a big part of what i’ve been enjoying about this challenge myself!

If you have no idea what we’re talking about, check out¬†Fuji & Mika #0 — Creative October Challenge.

Yes, Fuji, 7:00, Estonian Time, is fair game — this is not a sleep deprivation challenge ūüėČ Plus, it’s incidentally equivalent to 5:00 UTC, which i learned today stands for ‘Universal Time Coordinated’ — quite a bombastic name, huh!?

Fuji & Mika #0 — Creative October Challenge

My friend, artist and supporter¬†Fuji Hoffmann¬†proposed we challenge each other throughout the month of October to create and share something every week — there are no editorial bounds to what we may request from each other, and i’m looking forward to what his creative mind will send my way!

The video below explains the experiment and shows our first challenge to each other. The progress, results and further challenges will be posted on my¬†YouTube channel¬†as they develop throughout the month, and you’re invited to head over there and subscribe to stay in the loop ūüėČ

Not Edited Yet #11 — Ukrainian “Roads”

Let me spare you the euphemism — the roads in Ukraine suck catastrophically most of the time — they’re worse than in Romania — possibly even Moldova!

But why rush on a cycle tour? — i had a great time in the Odessa Oblast, where i traveled by bicycle in May ’17 along the Danube and the Black Sea.
