Big Noble will be presenting an evening at the IFC Theater in NYC next Thursday, April 29th at 9:45. We’ll be screening nine of our videos and showing a teaser for the final one from the album. Joseph & I will be on hand to answer questions and to have a bit of a discussion with an invited moderator. It will be similar to the event that we held in Paris in February which I really enjoyed. Hope to see our New York peeps!

We’re really excited to share the latest Big Noble video for the track "Pedal" by my longtime friend, Tunde Adebimpe.  Tunde is the singer in the tremendous TV on the Radio but we met almost 20 years ago at University.  He was introduced to me as a great visual artist and I’ve always thought of him as such.  Needless to say, he was one of the first people that came to mind when Joseph and I were discussing directors for Big Noble Videos.  I was incredibly enthused when Tunde dug the album and was up for the task of creating a visual component to accompany a track.  We really love what he created for the song.

Daniel Ryan who directed the Big Noble video for the song “Ocean Picture” recently completed another clip for us.  The video is for “Autumn” and it’s the second chapter in this visual trilogy.  And yes…there will be a third and final chapter.  The dude is a master. We hope you dig it.

Dear Paris peeps,

We’ll be holding an evening at the Gaite Lyrique in Paris to screen the tremendous videos that our director friends have generated on behalf of Big Noble.  We really felt these clips deserved to be projected on the Silver Screen.  The event will be on February 24th from 19:30 and will conclude no later than 21:00.  I will be on-hand to help present the videos but alas Joseph will not be in attendance.  In other words, there will not be a musical performance.  Just some terrific video pieces and me doing my best to answer questions. I hope you’re able to visit that night!

All the best,
Daniel
