TILT – Panic Room


A unique piece on the creative power of street art in general and tagging in particular. ‘Panic Room’ began when the Au Vieux Panier hotel asked the graffiti artistTilt to design a room for them. He responded by saying that he wasn’t interested in merely decorating a room but rather in creating something that looked more like an installation piece. Tilt thought about how a specific composition could communicate the notion of chaos and saw the entire room as a massive blank canvas. His approach was to manipulate the empty white part of the room to play up the feeling of chaos in the other. This footage shows him and a friend, a hip-hop singer with an old-school tagging style, working on the room. It took them one week to complete the project. (Length: 07:45)

Petite Noir – Till We Ghosts from Petite Noir on Vimeo.

It’s rare for artists to cut through the humdrum of contemporary music. And rarer are artists like Petite Noir who can be different while appealing to a wider audience. They’ve said that they’re trying to pioneer a genre called ‘new wave with a hint of an African Aesthetic feel to it’. It is a chunky mouthful of a label but it accurately sums up their sound. What sets them apart from everything else on the airwaves right now is their distinctly pan-African sound: their rhythm, their guitar melodies and certainly Yannick Ilunga’s voice.
