Streaming video and Purchasing of Shadow of the Invisible Man:
Purchasing of Shadow of the Invisible Man and Dose Hermanos CD's:
The artistic opportunities made available by the popularization of
DVD technology seem all but unexplored by a market driven by the
repackaging of old product. That is untill now. Dose Hermanos, the worlds
foremost psychedelic keyboard duo, have just released "Shadow of the
Invisible Man", their first "Audio/Video Album" created especially for the
DVD format. A product which has at it's creative core the possibilities
made available by new technology.
"Dose Hermanos release first DVD "Album"
Using a new system of virtual mapping, Dose Hermanos is attaching
sounds and images to the notes of their keyboards in real time. This
"digital fingerpainting" as they call it allows you to see every note that
they play including harmony. Or seen from a different angle they are
performing movies live.
All the music on the DVD is improvised by these two keyboard
masters (both of them symphonic composers who crossed paths while working
with the Grateful Dead) who play you through synthesizers and lunar
landscapes (Alien's Alley) to symphonic tone poems and impressionistic
paintings (Seduction of the Demons). Each piece portraying music in a
different way. Weaving their musical stories through the bluesy soft
colors of the title track to the hard edged visual dance of the rock
influenced "Urban Scrawl", they maximize the dramatic use of the 5.1
surround sound reaching musical, visual and sonic climaxes which are
breathtaking and at times even humorous. Rythmic patterns fall into
natural visual grooves which seem as driven by sight as they are by sound.
"This is the dawn of a new art form" says Dose Hermano Bob Bralove,
"where we are not matching pictures and music but picture is music and
music is picture. Music itself has always been the invisible man and as
this art form takes birth Dose Hermanos has been lucky enough to find a way
to record the first shadows of that man coming to light."
