All of the 386 videos sent to the competition are shown on a silver screen at the Oulu Music Video Festival during 21.-25.8.2013. The best videos will be awarded at the Pumpeligaala awards gala. All of the videos can also be voted for as the Audience’s Choise from the 1st of August.
Bajo Cero takes on the second biggest open air stage at Sweden’s Umeå Kulturnatta event on Saturday, 18th of May. The band plays at 00.35 as the finishing performance of the evening on “Renmarkschenen”.
Bajo Cero’s new music video Óyela is produced in collaboration with comic artist Ville Ranta. The ambitious objective of the video was to shoot it in one pass changing locations while Ville is making the drawings. After a month of preparation we almost pulled it off with couple of exceptions. The camera was attached to the highly modified movable drawing board which also held the key lighting setup for the whole video. Ville doesn’t actually appear in the video until the very last frames.
Bajo Cero releases their third music video on the first of April 2013. The video which is made to the title song of the band’s debut album “Óyela” is directed by the guitarist and songwriter Okko Meinilä. The video was made in collaboration with comic artist Ville Ranta who made the drawings seen on the video and also took part in planning of the manuscript.
A link to the music video will be published 1.4.2013.
The album Óyela, released by Bajo Cero in October, gets a brilliant Facebook review in the Finnish music magazine Riffi.
“- this music boils up from a metropol swarming with 24/7 turbulence, where the subway train incessantly rumbles until yet another morning, and where the corner shops are never closed at around midnight.-” Lauri Paloposki, Riffi
