Electro hip-hop pioneer Gramatik ventures out into movies with a thought provoking short film entitled The Condor which is set in the breathtaking landscapes of his hometown of Piran, Slovenia. As one of the film’s producers, Gramatik teams up with BitTorrent to premiere a bundle that includes the 10-minute psychological thriller, an accompanying soundtrack of 13 brand new songs scored by Gramatik and Luxas, and other special bonus features.

Featured during film’s closing credits is Gramatik’s second single “Corporate Demons” which will be released this Thursday, May  7th and will also be included in his highly anticipated Epigram EPdue out this June via his independent Lowtemp Music.

 

“As a musician, being involved in movies was always a logical next step,” explains Gramatik.  “In my mind, I think audible art is not really complete without visual art, and vice versa. The ultimate audio/visual experience is obviously movies. They’re the most widely circulated and accepted form of indirect communication and idea sharing. What I like about stories like The Condor are the conversations they start. I always liked stories that I don’t understand at first, even stories that frustrate me.”

 

Gramatik continues, “I like to go online and read how other people are interpreting the movie, have conversations about it, and explore a story through multiple viewpoints that I never could have conceived on my own. Other people’s perceptions of reality is what communicating is all about, and when you can absorb someone else’s view and see the world through their eyes, it adds a unique perspective to your own mind that you otherwise never would be able to experience. It doesn’t matter if you understand it. It’s really a metaphor on life in general. Ideas like these we can extend to the rest of our world – we can change our minds and be moved by art through each other.”

 

Furthermore, director and writer Nina Varano says, “after working with Denis on Brave Men, we were excited about undertaking the next level of our collaborative schemes with The Condor. Movies are the closest tangible thing we have to our own imaginations. They’re vehicles for ideas. The Condor is all about self-awareness and the difference between what is real, and what is perceived. Since short films often rely too much on audience manipulation, we decided to keep it fresh and put a spin on the traditional narrative. We wanted to create an experience for the viewer. Using breathtaking imagery provided by Denis’s hometown in Slovenia, fused with the sonic accompaniment created by Gramatik and Luxas’s score, our goal was to tell a story that sparks conversations and invites the audience to investigate; to be proactive, not reactive.”
