This could be the soundtrack for those quiet moments - lazy mornings, calm afternoons or the moment when you're about to drift off to sleep.

WHO: Memoryhouse
GENRE: Pop
LABEL: Sub Pop
WEBSITE: Memoryhouse @ Bandcamp | Memoryhouse @ Tumblr

Memoryhouse is a collaboration between classical music student Evan Abeele and photographer/videographer Denise Nouvion. Originally, the idea was to pair up Abeele’s ambient music compositions with Nouvion’s visual art, until they decided to record their songs.

Their music will remind you of dreams – mysterious, comforting, nostalgic even. Floating in reverb and lush melodies is Nouvion’s crystal-clear vocals. “The way we’re trying to write songs is having Denise in the forefront, with the plaintive delivery, but then having the music behind it really determine the mood. If you just listen to the vocals, it’s sung very sedately and stoically, but the music underneath gives it that melancholy that the actual delivery doesn’t contain.” Abeele says in this interview.

Here’s a song from The Years EP (released in 2010) – “To the Lighthouse” – Memoryhouse

… and a wonderful cover of My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep”:

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.

    An Afternoon in Tagaytay Highlands

    I have good memories of Tagaytay Highlands. There had been times when some of my friends and I would spend the weekend there, playing all sorts of sports and having our bodies healed in the warm and lapping jacuzzi pool. But those were distant memories. I was able to go back to this place, but only for an afternoon, and tried to remember the good old days.

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!
