Test Extra for Apes Container

On the 6th of April, the Stichting Apes Container presented the work of its artist.

"One night road" was one of this work.

Valeria Cosi
One night road.
“The outskirts of a city, by night. Everything gets quite on a coming winter.
Dark, silence, the heart bit, passion, fear, desire, words.
Once upon a night there was something; it lasted one night, only that one night road, then it disappeared.”
One night road, is a fairytale vision on a trip which will last only one night. Anything can happen there, any story. Which one is yours?
A photographic series which express and explore a night around a outskirts of a city; Florence in this case.
An area which is frenetic during the day, people works there, exchange ideas, meets; is the new city, with huge and numerous shopping centers, offices and hotels. During the night everything gets quite and strangely silence, leaving space to prostitutes, young couples looking for an anonymous space to embrace each other in a passionate night stand, homeless.

Out of the blue

Out of the Blue is a recently formed group characterized by the stylistic magnetism, where the passion for groove and improvisation is the common denominator.

The musicians consisting the band met in Rotterdam Conservatorium (CODARTS), where they studied Jazz, World music and Modern music.

After years of sharing musical experiences in various different projects and being friends, it was a natural result to create this choral project, where the members present their own original works in the rehearsal studio where this union of imaginative and talented artists collaborate, work and create, in search of a distinctive, warm and original sound.

All types of influences, from Jazz to Pop, filtered through Afro Cuban beat, funk or Brazilian music, are blended together to create this exciting cocktail which is OUT OF THE BLUE.
