The Strange Commercial



My new piece for Design Observer is about some strange and beautiful old commercials you can watch on the web. It focuses on films by Charles Wilp and Serge Lutens for Afri-Cola and Shiseido.

Oh, and check out today's Art Harbour sound. It's a tiny morsel of buzz taken from one of the Shiseido commercials and run through some pitch and tempo effects so that it becomes an entire symphony. It's one I'm quite proud of.
