A note from the producer, Morganics;

I recorded this track in the old Yothu Yindi Studio in Gunyangarra in Arnhem Land, Northern Australia with Derrick Bukulatjpi and Mikey Gurruwiwi. They stomped out a rhythm on the floor and Mikey played yidaki (didgeridoo). As the beat formed I added some serious bass sounds to complement the yidaki, then the fellas kicked a freestyle rhyme in Yolngu Matta talking about Yolngu Culture, hunting and fishing. After I left they flew to Darwin Luke and James from Marngarr to work with Tim Parish and Leigh Bramal to shoot the clip in two days in and around Darwin with some local Bboys and free runners. Shout out to Mulgagidgee (http://www.mulgagidgee.com.au) for taking me up there, Marngarr Resource Centre Aboriginal Corporation (http://marngarr.com.au) for supporting the project. Enjoy, and please pass it onto your friends and family, peace!!

HEART REMAINS OPEN > w/ Joelistics & Word Travels > OPEN SOURCE VIDEO PROJECT

In collaboration with Word Travels, Elefant Traks, and YOU – hip hop artist Joelistics is working with Verb Studios is calling out to all fans, artists and filmmakers – or anyone with an HD camera or videophone to contribute their vision of Australia for a national video portrait by uploading their own footage over the months of April 2012.

The HEART REMAINS OPEN PROJECT is an open source video project which invites anyone in Australia to contribute their own vision of the country.‘HEART REMAINS’ is one of the standout tracks from his recently released album VOYAGER. It’s an insightful reflection of the Australian landscape, culture and psyche. Written while on the road, Joelistics has channeled his feelings about his homeland into this epic ode to what he calls “my version of ‘I Love A Sunburnt Country’”. From the ghost to the cities to the stars in the red center it paints a portrait of a thousand faces of Australia. The project will use the track HEART REMAINS from the album VOYAGER as the inspiration for an experiment in social media art collaboration to create a video self-portrait of Australia.

This project is proudly supported by the Charles Darwin University MERGE FESTIVAL and SLAMTV.ORG

 

 

 

OFF THE GROUND

“Like a flash of lightning and in an instant the truth was revealed. I drew with a stick on the sand the diagrams of my motor. A thousand secrets of nature which I might have stumbled upon accidentally I would have given for that one which I had wrestled from her against all odds and at the peril of my existence.”

– Nikola Tesla
