“Sperrgebiet” / “Restricted area”

2. Dezember 2014

New Trailer for the ongoing project “Sperrgebiet” / “Restricted area”

Painting: Nikolaus Schrot
Photography: Irenäus Ilnicki
Editing: Nikolaus Schrot & Konrad Kästner
Music by Forest Jackson “Cymbalism”

The series »Restricted area« is a photographic documentation of paintings and their process of creation on the walls of an abandoned barracks site. The series was used to create a stop-motion-film that vividly represents the painting process. Not only the paintings itself, but also the camera perspective, natural light changes and the movements of the painter play an important role in designing the barracks. All these factors extend the static picture by adding a temporal level. A synthesis of painting, architecture, time, movement and light is thus created.

Preview: sketches of a moving city

15. April 2014

In March we shot the test for a upcoming series of interventions in public space planned in Summer 2014.

The series will consist of several stop-motion-video works, documenting the making of temporary drawings realized with chalk spray. The drawing should visualize a site specific character of a certain urban space, catching and translating the atmosphere, a unique structure or historical context of selected places in Berlin.

NEWS: Vermillion Cliffs – Music video by Elefanterrible

6. Juli 2012

///// NEWS ///// JULY ///// 2012 /////

ELEFANTERRIBLE aka Vanessa Raynal & Nikolaus Schrot produced the music video for the new released song “Vermillion Cliffs” of the french musician ELECTRONICAT published on No School Today.


ELECTRONICAT – VERMILLION CLIFFS from Frederic Bigot on Vimeo.


Vermillion Cliffs
Music by Electronicat
Video by Elefanterrible (Raynal/Schrot)

Vermillion Cliffs / Skyway Drive is the second release on the No School Today imprint, a series of limited edition
7“ singles (also available in digital format). This time we have two new instrumental tracks by Electronicat, both featuring his trademark, droning kick and agile guitar. Vermillion Cliffs has inherited more from Ballard than just its title – an arpeggiated Moog is set against a wide, dystopian landscape of propulsive rhythm, with a romantic memory of the past in the form of a western guitar riff. Think digital cowboys and futuristic prairies. In contrast, Skyway Drive is totally urban – a fitting homage to flyovers and sprawling spaghetti junctions, where a lackadaisical driving manner will only take you down the wrong turn. Ever in the mood for collaboration, Bigot asked French artists Nicolas Moulin and Vanessa Raynal to produce original video clips to accompany the music.
