SOFLES-Graffiti Mapped (Melbourne White Night 2015)
On Saturday the 21st of February, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped premiered at Melbourne’s largest cultural festival, White Night Melbourne. Attended by over 500,000 people and running from 7pm – 7am, the festival takes over Melbourne’s CBD for a one night only artistic extravaganza.
Many months in the making, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped is an innovative step forward for the world of graffiti and technology. Sofles – Graffiti Mapped explores the intrinsic connection between graffiti, street art and technology through a combination of 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti techniques and motion design.
Over 5 stories high, Sofles’ inner city mural is his biggest work to date. Add to that Grant Osborne’s incredibly detailed motion design and a musical score by New Zealand music producer Opiuo, and you have a truly innovative work of art. Visible for one night only, but destined to leave an impression on the city’s skyline Sofles- Graffiti Mapped was one of the most exciting events of the entire White Night Melbourne festival.
This week I chose a new interview with the legendary DJ Jazzy Jay . Conducted by DJ Lean Rock for Red Bull BC One .
DJ Lean Rock : Do you remember the first jam you played at? What were the atmosphere and vibe of the jam?
DJ Jazzy Jay : We didn’t have much money to purchase the equipment back then, so we would salvage things from our neighborhood. One person would have a receiver, one person would have a speaker, one person would have an amp and another would have a turntable. We couldn’t even afford a mic, so we would usually plugged up our headphones in the mic jack to talk. It was real grassroots and completely amateur. The very first jam I played at was in either 1974 or 75, in Soundview at this spot called The Little Houses, which actually used to be Army barracks. So I just brought my equipment and set up there, because we could do that back then.
