Vincent Moon 3.0: Petites Planetes

With Vincent Moon

Vincent Moon, the french filmmaker responsible for the Take Away Shows is back in New York.

After documenting rock and pop music while based in Paris or on tour with REM or The Arcade Fire, he left for a new kind of adventure – 5 years traveling around the world, collecting sounds and images from shamanic rituals deep in Peru to sufi trances from Chechnya, from orthodox chants in Ethiopia to experimental folklore music from Java, and much more.

The result, his Collection Petites Planètes, composed of more than 100 films and digital albums exploring music, is all available for free online on his website, under CC licence. He will present in exclusivity some of his new works with us.

vmoon _ antje taiga jandrig 3Vincent Moon (real name Mathieu Saura, born August 25, 1979) is an independent filmmaker from Paris. He was the main director of the Blogotheque’s Take Away Shows, a web-based project recording field work music videos of indie rock related musicians as well as some notable mainstream artists like Tom Jones, R.E.M., or Arcade Fire. For the past five years, Vincent Moon has been traveling around the globe with a camera in his backpack, documenting local folklores, sacred music and religious rituals, for his label Collection Petites Planètes. He works alone or with people he finds on the road, and most of the time without money involved in the projects, trying to produce and distribute films without following the established industry standards. He shares all his work, films and music recordings, for free on internet, under Creative Commons licence.
