Single DAR Dar was the first title of the piece came from the orbit of the new Moon, which we had entered quietly, on toes, while sleepers were sleeping, listening to the sounds of a dream from the previous album Holocaust Action Figures - 29 Dogs. First listeners could not resist its melody and rhythm. Why this is so, you can find out. Now by going four decades back in past over their new music video.
Those ones are found as to be part of the art-treasure of Seventies; they are found in archives of Petar Trinajsticrenowned Rijeka's master of film, a movie scenario writer and a Director. Restless spirit of the Seventies is filled with symbolism, and Eroticism of the body is apparent over the playful overlap of light and shade. Dream, daydreaming or reality?
Discover for yourself! A video remix is made done by Kreativni odjel studio from Rijeka. The duo these days releases their album "Dalmatian dub". We were only listeners once, then we enjoyed television video clips, and now, in 21st century, we become the communicators - those who participate in the action, those who actively contribute to the new multimedia experience - whenever we want!
Our desire is to enable a richer and more personalized experience for people, to immerge them into the magical world of Putokazi where the past, present and future stories blend. Each viewer decides how he will take part in this unique story, dream or meditative experience. Most of them will solve the riddle necessary for the story's continuation - or simply get to know themselves better through emerging the peaceful virtual world, getting to know the limits of their inner, emotional universe, the universe the album 'Mjesec' is exactly about.
Try it! By means of this, Putokazi are entering an artistic era on the next level - all available interactive audio-visual stories, artistic expressions in virtual worlds, probably precursors of futuristic holodecks found in SF films.
Although the action of this video depends on the viewer, it exists and is set in the distant future. Hyperviz was added into the 'Knjiga najboljih' as one of the best innovations in Croatia last year.
For the best experience, computers with video cards with at least MB video memory, as well as high-quality headphones or speakers are recommended. Two new music videos for our birthday. February 22nd A few dared Naranča - Putokazi - Nova Zemlja think the story would enter its 26th year, when we started working on February 22nd We are looking forward to our 26th birthday and accepting congratulations on Monday, February 22nd Why these songs?
It's all in their emotional states. The first one takes us into the melancholic, minor key mood, while the other, sung a cappella, fills us with overwhelming joy and playfulness of major key tones. Aren't these two atmospheres also the limits of our inner, emotional universe, the universe the album 'Mjesec' is all about?
Both musical videos will be officially promoted on March 21st, on the first day of Spring, also on the International Day of Forests and Planetarium Day.
This will happen on the same location where the album 'Mjesec' first appeared before the eyes and ears of the audience - in the planetarium of the Astronomical Center in Rijeka. Is this a birthday present for ourselves or for the audience? The wise know that in such situations the conjuction 'and' is more appropriate than the conjuction 'or'. Reach for the Moon! This culturally intriguing mission is printed with an emotional, female handwriting and comes into contact with archetypal emotions: sorrow, solitude, joy, elation, anguish We question ourselves: Is it possible to express archetypal emotions in a language that is distant from our inner principals due to tehnological development?
The Moon is here. Be courageous: silently, on your tiptoes, reach for it! Putokazi and Kurt Maloo in mutual jazz-waltz December 1st A beautiful voice is spread far, and beautiful voices - even further. December 1st The Light, Christmas Horn of Plenty is the name of a capella happening in which good fairies of Putokazi are banishing evil spirits and bestowing the audience.

Are there any more beautiful than these which children want, accompanied Naranča - Putokazi - Nova Zemlja music, while drawing the face of kindness, and also candy, fruits… It is our Horn of Plenty!

With this single "Moon" shows an unknown, misterious side of its face. Above the electronic pulsation of the musical theme, there flows a melody of frilly elegance. Since the funk lies without a secret one should simply give into it!
This composition, believe it or not, was performed by the Putokazi generation of Therefore, this theme was tatooed on the Putokazi's skin a long time ago. It's first working title was "Fiume".
