Tapping Black Boots
Echoes of old Slovak folk songs are reimagined in the pulsating beats of Christian's techno music
Enchanted by the vibrant Slovak folk culture, Japanese animation artist Kaoru Furuko and Swedish musician Christian Wellbo embarked on an eight-year artistic journey into Slovak folklore, folktale, and music. Their shared adventure birthed the idea of this audiovisual sketchbook. To weave the visual tapestry, a collage was created from Kaoru's visual sketches, animations, journals and video documentation. Intertwined with the visuals, echoes of old Slovak folk songs are reimagined in the pulsating beats of Christian's techno music.
