How they taught me to become the individual I am to be. Bodhi Ryuchai! All I want to say … Continue reading Last Day of 2021….
In winter of 2019, I lived in Seattle, Washington at the time. I drove from Tacoma to Seattle one night to watch the performance of Lingua Ignota and The Daughters. The atmosphere was grand. I have never been inside this legendary club called Nemo’s. Everything was beautiful that night. I saw Lingua’s exhilarating performance and I caught four songs of The Daughter’s spazzatic noise-to-the-walls noisegaze … Continue reading Prevention of the Culture of Violence

I was pondering a term to explicate the style of the existing cinema culture. Hence, whenever the term ‘Post-‘ is applied in art, music and film it usually refers to ‘after‘ or ‘in between periods.’ I am certain theorists – in this paradigm – are churning the preverbial engine to get their scholarly journals, books, and symposium in circulation to render a clear definition of … Continue reading Lights, Camera, & Sound: Post-Cinema, a Movement, Genre or Neo-Paradigm?
H.A.K.M. the song is a drone piece developed during my nomadic state of creativity and construction of H.A.K.M. project.

Both filmmakers techniques are … Continue reading Miho Hatori & Sudan Archives: La Blogotheque with a twist of feminine wilds in diversity.
