Russ Van den Berg’s Trip-Bop

A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of filming Russ’s new project , Trip-Bop. What a killing band! Really great writing from Russ and amazing playing from all the guys in the band. I wanted to put my camera down and get up and play. Russ has been getting back into Miles Davis from the 80´s fusion period, and you can really hear the influence in this new project. That’s not to say that this band doesn’t have its own sound ... quite the opposite! The collective of these 5 musicians really does bring a great , original feel and vibe to these new compositions. So here is a very short promo video of some of the moments from the gig. If you like what you hear, please let Russ know, or even better, buy the live album from his Band Camp page. All of this video was filmed using Sony alpha cameras , 50mm and 85mm lenses, and edited in FCPX.

Women In Music Berklee @ Sala Matisse

Sincerely, Women

Last Friday night we saw an advert for a Berklee Valencia event celebrating Women In Music, with the release of the compilation album on Disrupcíon Records - Sincerely, Women. The album features various artists with some absolutely outstanding music. Varied in styles, original song writing, and influences from all over the world...something for everyone! I loved all the artists!

¨Women In Music is a non-profit organization with a mission to advance the awareness, equality, diversity, heritage, opportunities, and cultural aspects of women in the musical arts through education, support, empowerment, and recognition¨.

The nights performances where really great, made me want to get up and play instead of taking pictures. With very tasteful backing from various other musicians, each artist had their own sound to share, and held the audiences attention brilliantly.
