The time has come for the Cut & Paste and Paper Chain Beatmaker X Filmmaker challenge… Perth’s first cross media music collab where local beatmakers and filmmakers are paired up, set free with $30, a video camera and the creative juices they were born with.
Over the course of the day the beatmakers will be diggin for records/cds/cassettes/anything with a sound bite, while the process in recorded live. Then they head into the studio to create what they can with the selected booty!

So here’s the deal:

1. All participants meet up at The Bird at 9am (that’s right in the morning)

2. Beatmaker and Filmmaker names are thrown into a hat and paired up

3. Take your $30 (That’s $15 p/Beatmaker) and find your samples

4. Make the beat, Film the process

5. The beats will be showcased at The Bakery over beers and a BBQ the next day

The following week, as part of the second 3ON3 ASPHALT COMP the local filmmakers will screen the results of the Beatmaker X Filmmaker challenge on the big screen in the Bakery courtyard.

We still have a couple of last minute filmmakers spots available, so if you are keen and are free tomorrow morning throw the Paper Chain boys an email the here.

The beats will be available for FREE DOWNLOAD from the PAPER CHAIN website as well as the shorts on all interweb platforms.

Monday, September 20th, 2010 by John

BeatMakerXFilmMakerCut & Paste are teaming up with Paper Chain to pair together beatmakers and filmmakers…

Basically we wanna get beat makers together, pair them up (drawn from a hat) and send them out for the day (bring $15 each so you have a total of $30 to spend) diggin for records/cds/cassettes/anything that can be used to make some beats….depending on how many people are in will determine how many beats are required to be made in this experiment. Then between your selves sort out who’s studio ya wanna go to and make the music. If this sounds like something you would be keen to be a part of then follow the actions below and get in touch.

To also make this a collaboration between artists and media, we will be sending a film crew with each pair to document the whole thing. which also puts the call out towards film makers of any kind that would wanna be apart of this mass collab of ideas and styles.

So for now, we just want to know how would be in to get an idea for heads and availablity. Which brings me to when it will be on….SATURDAY OCTOBER 23RD….MEETING GROUND TBA.

KP&ZK // THE FINAL MIX

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010 by John

bsp_04062010_0070

A month or so ago now we gaffered the Sonys and the Flip down to any available speaker or table that gave us a shot of what was the first live-set by Paper Chain artists Kit Pop and Zeke. What unfolded was forty minutes of turntable, mpc/sampler, acapella musical act…

It’s big bass and heavy shakes which is what the DEADWEIGHT! crew are all about. So sit back and enjoy.

This Friday will see the second installment of DeadWeight! @ The Bird… check out the details here

THE HAPPS IN THE TRAPS //

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010 by John

So sections of the Cut & Paste office have inadvertently been involved in some serious technical issues, resulting in our main MAC tower currently nothing more than an oversized and fragile book stop… So insted of bringing you the full 45min edit of Kit Pop x Zeke filmed at DeadWeight! a few weeks back, as well as a bunch of our Revelation Film Festival interviews with Cory McAbee (Stingray Sam), Jennifer Mass (Wheedle’s Groove), Jim Morton (Russ Meyer’s – Double Bill), Gary & Jeff (Sons of Steel)… we can’t!

So instead I thought we’d have a quick look at what some of the Cut & Paste family have been up to over the last month:

Justin Elwin:

Cut & Paste sound man and Paper Chain founder Justin Elwin (aka Kit Pop) has been working on a new 10×10x1 project… that equates to ten beats over ten days with one mpc. Below is a taste of what’s to come:

YouTube Preview Image

The full project will be availabe for free download once completed.
* Word around the office is that story boarding has begun for the ‘official’ film clip to the Kit Pop and Ta-Ku track Bounce, with some pretty crazy ideas being thrown around.

Mat De Koning:

Now where does Mat fit into the Cut & Paste scheme of things is always a tricky one to work out, but essentially he’s our go to festival camera man and the source of most of our skate footage. Along with all his other bits & bobs, Mat has spent the last five years following around some of Perth’s most intriguing creative’s including the affable Will Stoker… Here is a quick edit he did last week for Will Stoker and The Embers- Ten Thousand Horses, includes footage from the Cut & Paste crew’s coverage of the 2010 WAMis

YouTube Preview Image

*I hear a whisper that Will will be lending his vocals to a track by a hot local electronic artist

Dominic Pearce:

Directed by Cut & Paste casual camera/sound man Dom has been hard at work on a bunch on clips recently, including the new one for adult-contemporary super group Basement Birds. I was on board as the on-location production assistant and with a one-day shoot along Brookton Highway this is what manifested:

YouTube Preview Image

* I hear that Dom is working on the new Tomas Ford clip…

Once the MAC is back… we will upload some ‘exclusive’ videos shoot on the Flip on-location.

Stay tuned next week for when we see what some of the others boys have been doing… until then check out The Community’s new website – it’s really nice!

DEAD WEIGHT // ZEKE X KIT POP

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 by John

bsp_04062010_0063

A few weeks back now the young chaps from DEADWEIGHT! dropped the first of what is to be a monthly Bass Music night, of the same name at The Bird. I headed down to check out what Chris and the boys had on offer, as well as to film my Paper Chain buddies Zeke and Kit Pop who were dropping a brand new collab routine this particular evening… think five turntables, MPCs, samplers and music pads with cool fluro lights.

To capture what the boys had been up to I decided to bring down a stack of video cameras (ie. pretty much everything I could find). Including our Sony HDR-FX7, HDR-FX1E and our new wee Flip I located three places around the stage and set-up the three camera rig for the night. You might notice that the boys got the bass so heavy the tripod shakes!

Check the five minute grab we’ve put up here and then make sure you get down for the next DEADWEIGHT at the Bird!

YouTube Preview Image

No Promises BUT we’re hoping to put the whole 45 minutes set online in the next week..or two..or if you comment on this post saying you want us too..

Local photo man about town Bradley Serls was down at The Bird this particular evening so he swung us a bunch of his snaps for you all to look at!

New kids on the block DEADWEIGHT! crash the scene with style tonight as they launch the first of a monthly night by the same name.

When Chris Caravella noticed there was no regular “bass music” nights in our fair city (we’re talking hip-hop, glitch, dubstep, UK funky & future garage) they hit up new music venue The Bird and found an ally in Mike O’Hanlon and so DEADWEIGHT! has come into existence.

ROC RAIDA INTERVIEW //

Friday, December 18th, 2009 by John

In 2008 Grandmaster Roc Raida graced the shores of Perth, Western Australia. While here he sat down for a chat with Cut & Paste.

After we got our communication mixed up Roc Raida ending up waiting for over 45mins in the Rosemount courtyard as we battled peak hour traffic to get there. Luckily Sam Price [aka Naik] was there to chat away to the great man.

Once we arrived Mr. Raida has no ill feelings for the mix up and was one of the most amazing people we had the chance to meet and chat to.

A True Legend. 
Rest In Peace.

Help! I’ve given birth to a 10 pound hairless Sasquatch! //

Thursday, September 24th, 2009 by Nicole Norelli

“Help! I’ve given birth to a 10 pound hairless Sasquatch!” would have been the cry of the mother of an infamous yeti; but I caught her bopping around, grinning from ear to ear, proud of a baby son strutting on milk crates, bumping out rhymes to a full house on stilts.

Yes, if you found yourselves with a golden ticket to a sold out Scotsman’s-land last Sunday night, you would have witnessed the birth of WA’s own: Maxabillion’s Piece for Pieces EP and Mathas’s debut album 10 Pound Hairless Sasquatch, released on Community Records.

The albums were presented back to back, with very special guests and Community’s best Diger Rokwell, Arms in Motion and Deph One spinning the wheels like a fixed gear bike without brakes, and MC Able throwing out duet tricks for kicks with love on “P.L.R.T”.

Always doing it in style, with a 200 strong crowd keepin’ it local and loud and one hell of a proud night: Big ups to the Earthheads! //
