MusicArtGarbage Case File: David Ellis + Roberto Lange's "8 Million Stories"

One of the people we met during our stay in New York City was Roberto Lange, the leader of Latin electronica group Helado Negro, whose debut album Awe Owe has just been released on Asthmatic Kitty. He has also worked extensively with producer Guillermo Scott Herren, as part of Savath + Savalas and Prefuse 73. In addition to this impressive resumé, he has done frequent collaborations with artist David Ellis, whose music sculptures have adorned every volume of the Verve Remixed series. Here is David and Roberto showing off their latest piece, a musical garbage can entitled "8 Million Stories":

We will be filming a Helado Negro show in Greensboro, NC, on September 8, so be on the lookout for more footage of Mr. Lange in the near future.
