Anton Corbijn VJ debut
On Saturday September 17 2005 starphotographer and director Anton Corbijn was NoTV's special guest at the premiere party of a new series of dvd's by the Directors Label hosted by NoTV at CNCDNC in the VJ temple "11".
In "11" (Amsterdam) 4 albums in the series of famous directors were released during the audio/visual club evening CNCDNC.
After three succesful releases by Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham, now StÈphane Sednaoui, Mark Romanek, Jonathan Glazer and Anton Corbijn were featured. The four DVDs wee released on September 25, and celebrated on September 17!
The evening started at 22:00 with short films and interviews, mixed by NoTV (NL) and ADDICTIVE TV (UK). Together with Anton Corbijn an audiovisual mix was created of bands like Depeche Mode, The Killers, Joy Division, Nick Cave, Mercury Rev, Front 242, Nine Inch Nails and Sonic Youth, of which you can find clips on the 4 DVDs.
The audience enjoyed an explosive premiere and a feast of recognition (Corbijn created e.g. the clips for U2 and Nirvana), with golden oldies and a new palet of new wave and art-pop. Though initially we were not sure if Anton Corbijn would really climb the VJ booth, Anton amazed the audience by proving he mastered the Pioneer DVJ-X1 DVD scratch table within minutes.
