Today’s CreativeMornings talk by Jacob Krupnick was followed by a Girl Walk // All Day movie screening which turned into an impressive dance party. Who says you can’t have a dance party at 10am?
Girl Walk // All Day is a 71 minutes dance video / love letter to NYC. Watch it here.
I just discovered Girl Talk, the web sampling master musician this past fall, when fellow students in a graduate media studies seminar kept talking about him. The name was mentioned with reference to copyright, Rolande Barthes, and current music culture. Over the Christmas break, I downloaded the All Day track – and just loved it. It’s funny to be listening to something and then be, like, “Hey, that’s Belinda Carlisle,” (in rap/hip-hop track!), or “What? Isn’t that Peter Gabriel?”, for the entire album.
So this past week, I was absolutely learn about Girl Walk, a film about dance and NYC, set to the music of a single long-play All Day track.
If you like music, New York, creativity, and something different, you have to check out the film, which is available streaming on Vimeo. Just look at how these viewers were celebrating the film at 10am in the morning.
