Our video for Shamir’s “If It Wasn’t True” (which features a ton of home video footage shot by the man himself) is on rotation on RevoltTV right now. Special thanks to the folks at the network for showin love!
This summer we’re working on a dvd project with close friend and electronic musician, Lamec. It’ll be the first official release from our newly formed collaboration, #tripnfall, and will be available for purchase online thru Freshly Dipped Clothing, as well as a few possible storefronts in Harlem.
Summer’s warmin up, and we’re starting to get weird up here… look out in mid-late Fall for this one!!
I got the pleasure of knowing and working with Courtship through my brother, and became instantly hooked. There’s so much texture and originality, it’s pretty easy to lose yourself in their music. Give it a listen from top down! Easily one of our favorites…

A quick throwback for any of you who have tuned in post 2012 — this is a video for Harlem’s own Rugz D. Bewler. He came out with a solid, classic album that year, and asked us to shoot the first video for the title track, By Any Means Necessary.
Having been a painfully freezing day in January (and what would be the coldest day of the entire year… it was about 9 degrees…) we came out of it with this little Harlem flavored, split-screen flick, that ended up premiering on BET’s 106 and Park.
PHILLYTUNES (coming soon!)
The fourth installment to Audio::Visual’s TUNES series by Katakresis + Anthony Sylvester.
A repost of The Detector - a short film we made just about 3 years ago. Basically an abstract storyline about a man truly living in his own world (and an excuse for us to shoot some of Manhattan’s and South Bronx’s most beautifully hidden landscapes).
One of the most memorable parts of making this film (except for the quite adventurous weekend spent filming this with the lead and co-writer, Nick Daniele) was applying the sound and score.
We shot the film without audio, in an effort to avoid dealing with the unending boisterous tones and feedback of NYC. Khalil Edwards recorded folly afterwards at his studio in Crown Heights, and created a really kickass soundscape. He helped fill the scenes with life, yet maintained a stylistic sense of quiet and solitude. Amazingly he’s a sound designer, sound recordist, producer, engineer, and self-sufficient filmmaker all in one.
Modus, a musician based out of Hungary, then crafted some poignant instrumentals to compliment the visuals and help segway the scenes. He has an undeniable perception of the uniquely moody New York City landscape, having spent years in the city before returning to Europe. He’s a genuinely undiscovered, enormous musical talent.
There will be a few more shorts being made soon! Be on the lookout…
Cary Nokey “Twist It Up” coming soon!
Long time collaborator Mr. Dream released their final album today on Godmode Records. We’re excited to share this culmination of what was one of NYC’s most unique, contemporary rock sounds.
Also, reposted below is our first music video with them back in 2011, for their single, “Trash Hit.”
New visual coming for Cary Nokey’s instrumental track “Twist It Up!”
Cary Nokey is a new dance group started by record producer/songwriter, Rob Fusari. After seeing SUBTUNES and ROOFTOP, he asked us to shoot a bunch of visuals and then basically fuck them up in After Effects, which is more or less our favorite thing to do.

Frequent collaborator and sampling genius (and very close friend), Katakresis, put out an EP recently that’s particularly moving. Listen to it from start to finish — there’s a pretty definitive narrative if you follow closely. Enjoy this!!!
