Pencil Vs Camera - 33

© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

I've taken this photo in Brussels, near Louise (Belgium). I've also made the rough sketch. It is dedicated to STROMAE.

View the the full Pencil Vs Camera album

Paul van Haver, better known as "Stromae" (anagram of "Maestro"), is a young singer-songwriter of Belgian-Rwandan origin. He has recently distinguished himself in both hip hop and electronic music.

He first became famous with the song "Alors on danse". By May 2010, this track had reached number one in France, the Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Austria, Turkey, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Belgium, Romania and the Czech Republic.

Vertigo Records, a label of Mercury Records France (Universal Music Group) signed him for a worldwide licensing deal.

You've got to see his "video lessons" showing how he created his best electro songs simply with his voice, a computer and a small synthesizer!

The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10, which has been provided to me by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical composition).

In Harmony

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

Play play in harmony
Lives beat is going on
Our urban symphony
Till days to past are gone
Day and night a song
With singings of our try
As we come on to long
In each our work and tie

Our feet are in tune
Though playing far too rough
And some are inopportune
Never coming to enough
Like wall flowers grow
The town people live
Taking time fast and slow
With their loves to give

There are no guarantees
Everything’s working fine
For those are mysteries
For day to day assign
We have our hope to find
And face an unlocked door
Just have an open mind
In a city of peace and war
