Kurt von Stetten is killing it! On the heels of composing the new theme for the Lost at Home Podcast, a fantastic interview by the fab folks at Visions of the Unexcused—entitled “The Last Renaissance Man: Ten Questions with Kurt von Stetten“—explores Kurt’s creative endeavors from music to visual art to BMX and beyond. And of course there’s a couple mentions of Mr. Bob Pollard… Oh, and check the latest in a string of Vans videos using Kurt’s music: one celebrating a Vans tattoo exhibition/competition and another promoting a Vans ‘Zine workshop. The videos feature “Codify” and “He’s No Writer” (respectively) from Kurt’s 2011 classic, Cyclops. Check it:
Somehow we missed these: Boston’s own The Noise recently ran a glowing review of Kurt von Stetten’s Cyclops calling it an “aural feast not to be overlooked.” Damn. And the Elusive Little Comments blog can’t wait to hear more. Neither can we. Thankfully a new album is already in the works. That’s how he roll. Follow along on his blog. Enjoy!
In case you missed it, Kurt von Stetten produced a video for the track Code of Fisherman off his new album Cyclops. Kurt hand painted all the elements before scanning them into his Commadore 64 to get his animation on. Check it!
Kurt von Stetten’sCyclops has made into a couple of stellar “best of” lists for 2011. Ryan’s Smashing Life included both Cyclops and Pyramid on his list and called Kurt a “gifted creator” and a “prolific genius” and Music Savage says “The album deepens with each listen, and I’ve very much enjoyed hearing it again and again.” We certainly agree. Thanks guys!
