[Muzaq] Alcoholic Faith Mission: My Eyes To See

When two guys from Denmark feel it is too narrow there and they decide to move to Brooklyn, so how does this sound then? Listen carefully to “My Eyes to See”. It is taken from AFM’s upcoming Album “Let This Be the Last Night We Care” (to be released on March 5th, 2010).

Description? No, thanks this is something between post-rock, electronic and pop. Just listen, it sounds very nice. If this was mainstream pop, we could turn on the radio without having to barve again and again.

By the way, they are touring through Europe in March 2010. Check their dates here.

[Arts] Christo’s Jeanne-Claude Has Passed Away

Born June 13, 1935 like her later husband Christo. She first met him in Paris in 1958, when he had just fled from the communistic Bulgaria.

While she was eduated in Switzerland and France and finished her academic studies of latin and philosophy in 1952, he was studying arts at the Fine Arts Academy in Sofia and in Vienna. In 1964 they moved to New York, where they developed steadily growing ideas.

Wrapping was their topic.

  • In 1961 they wrapped barrels of oil in Cologne.
  • In 1969 they wrapped a part of a coast in Australia.
  • In 1995 they wrapped the german Reichstag (photo here)
  • And in 2005 they made “The Gates” in New York’s Central Park.

It is said Jeanne-Claude and Christo often took separate airplanes. If one airplane crashed and one of them died the other one would be able to maintain their work. Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon passed away on wednesday November 18, 2009 in a Hospital in New York.
