EARLY MUSIC VIDEOS
At an early age I started experimenting with Music video editing and creation. My first Music video was done under the Psuedonym "Black Saffron" and the style of my work was predominantly dark and macabre. Later as I steered myself towards a lighter form of sound I renamed myself Matinino.
MATININO: C'est La Vie
Black Saffron: Bagatelle
Black Saffron: Der Dichters Brust
FANTASY OF FLIGHT
SPRING ARTS FESTIVAL 2014
In 2014, my music project at the time: CROAK, joined up with the local artist, Vasek Matousek, and the wine farm “Twee Jonge Gezellen”, and hosted an exhibition combined with a show. The wine farm provided Krone Borealis MCC wine and numerous delicacies and canapés , enjoyed while exploring the Vasek's work. The audience was then led down into the cellars for the performance. World renowned flutist Allesandro Gigli collaborated with CROAK to create a unique atmospheric muasical and visual experience. During the performance, Thomas Dorman (aka Dr Benway), painted a large canvas which was auctioned after the show.
