QUENTIN TARANTINOQuentin Tarantino is een Amerikaanse filmregisseur, acteur en scenarioschrijver en bekend van films als Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Django Unchained, Inglorious Bastards, Pulp Fiction en Jackie Brown. Al luisterend naar muziek krijgt hij ideeën voor wat later on belangrijke scenes worden in zijn movies. De beelden sluiten daardoor feilloos aan bij de leidende muziek.Waarom Quentin Tarantino’s soundtracks?
“Ik vind Tarantino niet alleen een intrigerende filmmaker, maar hij heeft ook nog eens oor voor muziek met een ziel. Hij selecteert de meest spannende en soulfulle soundtracks voor zijn films. Ik heb ooit al eens bij een concert van Candy Dulfer drie soundtracks van Tarantino films gezongen en dat was geweldig. De arrangementen zijn vaak orkestraal en daardoor kan ik er goed mee uitpakken tijdens Sherry Sunday.”
SHERRY DYANNESherry Dyanne is een zwoele soul- en jazzzangeres met een natuurlijke, eigen retrosound. Haar stem voert je mee naar de dagen van Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, versgebakken appeltaart en nostalgische jazzclubs.Extra verkoopinformatie

October 19th, 2013

Some cool Senate images:

People and trams and cars and buses and vans passing Senate Square.

The white and green stripes in the background are the white walls and green roofs of the Lutheran cathedral.

Slower things (people) appear wider, faster things (trams, cars, buses) appear narrower. Some people wandered across the square and back, and appear twice.
