Naysayer & Gilsun

Naysayer & Gilsun

If you haven’t heard of Naysayer & Gilsun yet, play this really loud and dance around your bedroom or office. Don’t be fooled by the nature scenes, these guys are editing wizards not bound by content or genre conventions in any shape or form. Working with a collage of stock footage, live shows, movie cuts, raps, effects, sub-titles, supers, graphics and everything in between, they have taken mash-ups into the realm of hypermedia and created something new. "As Naysayer & Gilsun's fixation with film, television and pop-culture trends has grown, they have spent their time cutting, pasting and remixing our media world to create an intensely visual, feature length DJ set played on giant projectors." This video is a fun introduction, but if you get the chance to see it live on giant shiny projectors, don’t miss it.
