I Need Nothing
"a nearly useless Odyssey"
Concept : Cãoceito + Burdman
Directed by : Moopie
Place : Matéria Prima
Music : Parenthetical Girls - Doughnut
‘I need nothing’ is an original concept from Cãoceito + Burdman, shot by Moopie. Its premier happens as a tangential project of EXD’11.
‘Useless’ - the motto of biennial’s current edition - was the kick-off, and the thought on how album covers (vinyls, in this case) enable people to ‘listen with the eyes’ the main goal of the project. At a time where digital audio files dominate but where traditional mediums still seduce fans, the album covers, being useless for some, stay relevant for others.
In this odyssey we benefited from the help of a set of people which, directly or not, live by the rhythm of the music they buy, download, share or create.
The Parenthetical Girls lent music (Doughnut) to the video;
Moopie shot the video;
Matéria Prima yielded the venue in Lisbon;
designers/illustrators/artists - Ariana Couvinha, Carla Almeida, Daniel Marques, Diogo Carvalho, Júlio Dolbeth, Hugo Oliveira, Manuel F. Sousa, Mariana Fernandes, Miguel Feraso Cabral, Miguel Vale, Nuno Aguiar, Paulo Lourenço, Paulo Serra, Pedro Naves, Rodrigo Burdman, Rui Vitorino Santos e Samir Mesquita - provided the bulk of over 200 covers, which populate the video and embody the central element of the project, and yet all others who enriched the discussion with surprising texts.
