Our first of the day is more experimental than usual (besides one other post...), but is interesting because of it.
The Donkey Wheel- TDW uses short clips (no longer than 1 second) and patches them all together to create everything you hear- the background, the perc, the sound effects- everything. There is easily over a thousand sound and video clips, so the final project is quite impressive considering how much time a regular opac can take (a few hours to get a decent, very simple piece out). TDW has been known to do this to other songs as well, one that might ring a bell once you start watching. Look familiar? Twitter.com/thedonkeywheel
Muse, New Born:
Myka Dauster- I came across Myka's video randomly, which was strange because it only had a couple of hundred views. His vocals are sublime, especially heard in his solo. You can also see another great show of his solo talent in his cover of Gnarles Barkley's Crazy. Facebook.com/dauster
Bruno Mars, Grenade: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSvXf8hzlTU
Cameron J.- I've been looking for a Nikki Minaj opac cover, and this is the best I've seen so far. Cameron's almost doo-wop take on the hip hop hit gives it a new twist. He fills the background with full chords and covers with sweet croons over top. Myspace.com/cameronjmusicnow
Nikki Minaj, Right Through Me:
Still in search of some great girl opac! If you have or find any, please let us know so we can post! Cheers xx
