We Drift (Part 1 – A Sonder)

We Drift (Part 1 – A Sonder)

“We Drift” is two part series. Part 1, “A Sonder,” is inspired by an entry in the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, the brainchild of wordsmith John Koenig. Koenig coined the noun ‘sonder’ to describe the “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.” He elaborates how we each see ourselves as the main character in our own unfolding stories with “a network of acquaintances who drift in and out of contact over the years…[and] in the background, faint and out of focus, are the extras. The random passersby. Each living a life as vivid and complex as your own. They carry on invisibly around you, bearing the accumulated weight of their own ambitions, friends, routines, mistakes, worries, triumphs and inherited craziness. When your life moves on to the next scene, theirs flickers in place, wrapped in a cloud of backstory and inside jokes and characters strung together with countless other stories you’ll never be able to see. That you’ll never know exists. In which you might appear only once. As an extra sipping coffee in the background. As a blur of traffic passing on the highway. As a lighted window at dusk.”

– Part 2 will be released early next week –

“We Drift: A Sonder” was filmed in Tokyo and Matsuyama Japan on cool spring nights. In my previous time-lapse works, the blur and pace of the images obscure the individuality of the people of the city. They become abstractions. A goal of this series is to flip to the other side of the spectrum –slow motion images with a focus on the individuality of the people of Japan.

The images were shot with the Sony A7s and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
A complete gear and location list can be found at attheconflux.com.
I composed the music and recorded the solo piano part at Sound Pure studios in Durham, NC, with the help of recording engineer, Artem Smirnov. Members of The Deviant Septet, Karen Kim—violin, Doug Balliett—bass, recorded the instrumentals with recording engineer Rick Nelson at Duke University.

Music by Ivan Torrent, please do check his work in below mention links:

Finally here I present my latest time-lapse film. It took almost a two years efforts, struggles and creativity to come up with this project. It was a tough period with ups and down going on in my life….

the whole thing started with the idea of 3 minutes, but as I kept on shooting it kept on going and finally I decided to make it 6 minute length to match it with a perfect music which I found and for that I wanna thank Ivan Torrent for his wonderful master piece

Anyhow here I’m excited to share with you my recent project, “This is where I live” dedicated to my beautiful second homeland (Qatar).

A portrait about the world’s number one vintage motorcycle expert and his appreciation for one particular motorcycle. The Neander. An incredible machine form the late 1920s. A piece of German history very few people in the motorcycle world know about. Particular to one man and his genius. Ernst Neumann-Neander. The Neander does not only look futuristic it performs as well as it looks.

The Canals of Delft

The Canals of Delft

The canals of Delft were incorporated into the original city planning. They served as defense and lifelines throughout the city, delivering goods, people, and supplies. The word “delft” itself is derived from “delven” or, “to dig”. The oldest canal line is the Old Delft, and the city has expanded around it over the past 750 years. The other city canals, or grachten, are still central to city life.
On july 01 2017 i visited the city of Delft in the Netherlands and shot this film.
