At Ltrainvintage we thrive on the imagination of our costumers and of our community surrounding our headquarters in Brooklyn, New York. Fashion and music are mega-linked almost meta-responsible for each other and an advancement in music is usually followed in an advancement in fashion, and viceversa! (ha)
In the spirit of spring time ingenuity in the arts we present to you the brilliant Swiss artist Oy , master of the digital EDM movement as well as John Cage’s advancements on what we can consider music. Much like our customers Oy is creativity incarnate. Mixing and matching the mundane and basic and creating something extraordinary.
In line with our ethos of repurposing objects Oy uses a ballon to create amazing psychedelic sounds. She makes a throat out of the ballon.
If visual pretension happens to get the best of you, we suggest closing your eyes and listening, and then re-watching the video so you can see how she creates these unearthly sounds and awesome beats. In other words prepare thyself to be schooled!
Our favorites which are currently playing at our headquarters include,
