Thelonious Monk: Straight, No Chaser (1988)

"Expanding on footage of Monk's 1967 tour shot by Christian Blackwood, Charlotte Zwering (Gimme Shelter) has created the definitive filmic portrait of the master bop pianist–composer. This captivating DVD digs deeper into the life of the famously eccentric pianist–composer ...

Straight, No Chaser fleshes out Monk's character considerably – from his harmonic theories to his use of quarter – tones (produced by hitting two adjacent piano keys simultaneously and occasionally even striking the boards with his entire forearm or his foot) to his mysterious relationship with his patron, baroness Nica de Koenigswarter."

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore

"Inspired in equal measures, by Hurricane Katrina, Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, 'Morris Lessmore' is a story of people who devote their lives to books and books who return the favor. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of story. Using a variety of techniques (miniatures, computer animation, 2D animation), award–winning author/illustrator William Joyce and Co–director Brandon Oldenburg present a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M–G–M Technicolor musicals. 'Morris Lessmore' is old–fashioned and cutting edge at the same time."

Volkswagen viral marketing campaign uses giant staircase piano

"If stairs played musical notes when you walked on them, would you be more likely to take them?

The video of people skipping the escalator in favor of composing music on the piano stairs of Odenplan subway station in Stockholm, Sweden, ... is part of a new viral marketing campaign called 'The Fun Theory.' The concept, created by Volkswagen Sweden and ad agency DDB Stockholm, is based on the idea that 'fun is the easiest way to change people's behavior for the better.'"
