Movement. I guess there there are some ways of representing it. The first thing that pops in mind is blur. Movement generates blur. Funny that this is a photographic phenomenon. It doesn’t happen in the real world. Even so we always remember blur. How would the old represent movement? That’s an interesting question. I think that even more than blur the suspension of time photography allows can be the best instrument to show movement. A body falling from a building can be really crisp with no blur at all and yet the impression of speed will be enormous. A giant wave fills the same. Here is a much simpler example. A party and the movement people do when they are having fun. This shot is actually a frame of a music video i did last year. It depicts a party with a lot of thing going on…lots of movement…


Let’s narrow it a bit…. Let’s try a decade. Certainly i had no success trying to do a lifelong list but maybe a decade. So let’s talk about the last 10 years and let’s talk about bands and singers not songs…maybe it works better:

1: Radiohead

2: White Stripes

3: The Killers

4: The strokes

5: Regina Spektor

6: Florence and the machine

7: Coldplay

8: U2

9: Beiruth

10: Daft Punk

Damn it… it happened again!!! 10 are not enough!!! Not even to begin with…i believe i’m no good in making lists….

Cheers 🙂

It’s been i while since i wrote a list. As i love music but don’t talk much about it i think a basic list with the songs that played in my life’s playlist would be nice. A 10 songs list. I’ll only talk about music in english. First because you guys wouldn’t know much of brasilian music outside Bossa Nova. Also because in Brasil the influence of the US in the musical scene is massive. Today is not that much but when i grew up there was mostly music in english on the radio. It was really rare to find music in portuguese. So here it goes. Sorry because it will be a cheese list. The ten most…but later on i can start to play around and get to more interesting stuff:


1: I can’t take my eyes off you: Boys town gang (it was my first dance in the beginning of the 80’s)

2: Bizarre Love triangle: New order (the 80’s were full of new order’s songs)

3: Back in Black: ACDC (i was such a big fan of the band i went to rock’n rio to watch them when i was 12 i guess)

4: Your song: Billy Paul (this version of the Elton John’s classic played a lot on my love life)

5: I feel love: Donna Summer (I was very young but i remember listening to it and feeling the energy of the electronic music from Brian Eno)

6: New Year’s day: U2 (i started a band on the day i heard it)

7: Marianne: Tori amos (since i heard her i’ve became a fan)

8: The heat of the moment: Asia (i was always a big fan from progressive rock and those guys were gods)

9: Bohemian Rhapsody: Queen (this had to be in here… it’s just too good)

10: When you were young: The Killers (at least a new one)


Damn!!! It’s i m p o s s i b le to make a list of 10 songs even if…well…impossible…but i tried…i’ll write many more of those…

i’d love to know about some songs you guys had in your life’s playlist… Cheers!!
