Zimmer – Lost Your Mind

Zimmer is one of the best emerging French electro music producers with FKJ, Kartell and Darius. Member of Roche Musique team, he already has released three EPs and some very well known remixes.

His house music is sweet, dreamy and absolutely modern, a true gift for all the lovers of innovative and audacious sounds.

With “Lost Your Mind”, a song from the EP Ceremony, the producer affirms a universe more and more well defined, inspired by a celestial aesthetic, crossing poetry and science fiction. In this clip by Jeremi Durand, humanity is a the center of the story.

In a declining society, in an apocalyptic world, human bodies float in the air like if they were living their last vital moment.

Far from being a stressing view of a natural catastrophe, the clip is a contemplative experience reminding a cosmogonic tell about the origins of life.

 

Music of India

Indian music is one of the richest in the world even though it focuses almost purely on the sacred, on mystical ecstasy, or on devotional expression (bhakti). This must be understood from the Vedic notion that accompanies the various religious manifestations that we group as “Hinduism”, that the universe was created with sound and that certain sounds attune the divine creativity of the cosmos as a presence.

As this documentary produced in 1966 by the Indian government itself shows, Hindu classical music can be divided into two main categories, Hindu music of the north and the carnation of the south, which share the same roots but would have been divided over the centuries XV and XVI (it must be said that this division is not exhaustive, much less).

The documentary features appearances of some of the most important Hindu musicians of the time and establishes the essential elements of this musical tradition.
