“Algerian Rhapsody”

Apparently, many comparisons have been drawn between Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Albert Camus’ “The Stranger.” Someone finally took the next step and mashed them together in a video.

“Critics, both journalistic and academic, have speculated over the meaning behind the song’s lyrics. Some believe the lyrics describe a suicidal murderer hunted by demons or depict events just preceding an execution. The only thing we borrowed was the instrumental track.The latter explanation points to Albert Camus’s novel The Stranger, in which a young man confesses to an impulsive murder and has an epiphany before he is executed, as probable inspiration.” -Wikipedia

Photographer and Disney feature animation layout artist Joaquin Baldwin grew a bit frustrated with his rather vociferous and very persistent Bengal cat Elton. Rather than doing anything rash however, Baldwin instead put his design skills to use and hilariously autotuned Elton’s meow with the Voloco pitch correction and real-time voice-processing app. The results are quite remarkable.

Turn your sound up for this one – the reverb is incredible.

“Sound of Silence” Flashmob

During the SWR1RP Hitparade 2018, what was supposed to be a production of the “White Horse Inn” turned into a musical “Sound of Silence” flashmob.
