|by Design DVD Available|
Colorcalm's latest DVD entitled by Design is available now in the sitesakamoto store. The Colorcalm by Design DVD pairs up leading graphic artists with musicians to produce three individual and distinct ambient designs.
Art Barcodes features artwork from Dutch graphic designer Irma Bloom with music by composer Michael Nyman. This piece features 80 striped color panels inspired by paintings from historical and contemporary artists ranging from Rembrandt and Van Gogh to Warhol and Fontana.
Food Coloring from artist John Maeda of MIT Media Lab features a score by composer and pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto. Maeda mixes colors and abstract forms to create Food Coloring, a digital rendition of different color palettes derived from food he found one day in his refrigerator.
The final piece Color Wheel is by British designer Peter Saville with music by New Order. Comprised of two separate pieces, Saville uses a color palette inspired by the Renaissance period to create a colorscape accompanied by a Terranova remix of New Order's track Elegia. In the second piece, Saville explores the transition between two specific colors, blue to red, accompanied by the full length original New Order track.
This is a 'zone free' DVD.
