Hi, this is my first video for an experimental, simple and lo-fi international nature exploration vlog. No big photo lens yet! But I wanted to make films like that for many years. 20 years ago I wanted to become a biologist but now I'm a "Jack of all trades" as they say. Which is great! Let's do what feels important and let's make things happen. Thanks a lot for watching and supporting me by subscribing and leaving a comment.
Music: my 2 yet unreleased ambient songs.
Today I went for a short hike to capture some footage for my new generative/algorithmic ambient song that will be part of the upcoming album. Here is what I saw there and here is what it sounds like. The day was beautiful, and the creek was magical. This is one of my favorite tenkara streams in summer, it's healthy and alive. And it's really beautiful.
A week ago I had a short trip to discover a new small stream, and it was a life changing experience. The stream was beautiful, alive, clear, and wild.
Here is a new vlog-like sonic meditation which I call a short film. It's about the creek that I'm trying to explore and understand more deeply. Because this creek already is the source of so much magic in my recent years. I'm grateful for it.
Music: Martynas Jocius – Silent Knowledge (alt. Virsmai – Nebylusis Žinojimas).
A new short film that continues the saga of small forest creeks. For me this place is magical, and I come here as often as I can (but not too often) to heal and strengthen my sould and body. It's a wild place where trees fall and die naturally, where brown trouts live, and where you can see so many boulders that were brought here thousands of kilometers from the north during the last ice age.
Recorded in December 2019.
Soundtrack: A Magical Place (2019, unreleased).
"Time" is a short film about a small creek, forest, autumn, and life.
Music and video footage by Martynas Jocius (me).
Thanks for watching.
A week ago, as if by accident, there were favorable circumstances to start working on one planned long-term creative project. I packed my coffee and camera into my backpack and went for a few hours to a small beautiful creek where I was hoping to start filming a small documentary on Lithuanian trout (Salmo trutta fario).
The trip was a complete failure in terms of the goals set, but absolutely magical compared to what was actually going on.
Sun and warm wind is back for a few days. A good time to explore some wild places with the family. We say hi to this small beautiful insect.
