VINCENT MOON’S TRIBAL SOUNDS OF THE PHILIPPINES

image

Artiste Connect is proud to announce the release of the much awaited series films of by Vincent Moon from his Artiste Connect project:  “Exploring the music of the Philippines”. 

The French filmmaker is known for his work with the cult music series La Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows that featured more than 150 films of world renown indie bands of the likes of THE NATIONAL, ARCADE FIRE, BEIRUT, SUFJAN STEVENS, SIGUR ROS, BON IVER, REM, TOM JONES and many more. 

Moon with his current flagship website Petites Planetes explores world music and tribal sounds.  In a nomadic quest around the world, he includes the Philippines as a destination and made four main films of local tribes:  Ifugao, T’boli, Kalinga, and Mansaka.  On the side he also shot the Mabuhay Singers, indie duo Fando and Lis, and Kate Torralba yet to be released.

With his love of the music he discovered in the country, he also released 3 free digital albums recorded guerrilla style of Ifugao, Tboli, and The Mabuhay Singers.

Moon’s films Ifugao, T’boli, Kalinga, and Mansaka are truly a sensory tribal experience that makes one realize the beauty of cultures taken for granted. 

These films and music are also best enjoyed in Vincent Moon style—“All these were made for free, available on internet at any time.”

A word from Vincent Moon:

 “hello dear friends from the Philippines and around

 it’s with great pleasure that i am sending you this little message on this grey sunday (at least where i am now)

we are publishing online this coming week the films we made in the Philippines last march (2012), exploring 4 Tribal cultures of various parts of the country:

T’BOLI vimeo.com/55854525

IFUGAO vimeo.com/55863208

MANSAKA vimeo.com/55860519

KALINGA vimeo.com/55879446

as well, we are releasing two digital albums from those recordings:

http://petitesplanetes.bandcamp.com/album/tboli-o-music-from-the-southern-philippines

the films are published online now but will be announced only in a few days to the public - so please enjoy them as ‘premieres’ if you want ;)

we made those films thanks to your help, either financially (through the website www.artisteconnect.com ) or with a place to stay, a moment to share, an idea on a film and more

i can’t express enough how happy i am to have been able to make those 4 short films in such a little period of time

i hope you will enjoy them, that i consciously claim to be part of an experimental ethnographic approach of sounds and cultures that i have been trying to develop in the past years

do not expect an obvious documentary form, talking heads and so on with tons of informations on those music and the traditions behind. just dive into them, ideally in the dark with a powerful sound system, and enjoy the trip

 

all my love and all my light for your magic in this new year

from Santiago, Chile
