British magazine ‘The Skinny‘ puts Ronni Shendars video for dust in some very illustrious company… and adds it to their “Ten Rapid” selection. Find the entire article and selection here, or read below:
“In this week’s Ten Rapid playlist, we showcase videos from Savages, who share an atmospheric live performance; Richard Fearless, the main man behind Death In Vegas, makes a welcome return; Sweden’s Little Dragon go on a rural road trip; alt.rap star Akira The Don delivers his swansong; Kate Tempest takes on The Beigeness; and we deliver a triple (or even quadruple!) whammy of videos from female-fronted rock bands, with the new single from Honeyblood, the return of Courtney Love, and Garbage in collaboration with Brody Dalle. We’ll finish up with a live track from The Afghan Whigs, and some gorgeous electronica from Gold Panda affiliate Glitterbug. Everyone ready? Let’s dive in!”
“And finally, a track of stately, majestic electronica from Germany’s Glitterbug, aka Til Rohmann, signed to Gold Panda’s NOTOWN Recordings. Inspired by the work of Brian Eno and Derek Jarman, he makes the kind of expansive electronica that evokes stark landscapes and the shadow-play of natural light, and in the video, directed by Ronni Shendar, these are exactly the kind of scenes depicted. Deserts, mountains and riverbeds drift dreamily past the camera as the beatless electronic compositions of Rohmann pulse and glow. It’s the perfect end to our Friday playlist.”
You can find the video in the article here.
What Groove writes about it:
“‘Dust’ ist ein perfektes, milde traurig gestimmtes Elektronikalbum von einer selten unaufgeregten, leisen Kompromisslosigkeit“, schreibt unser Autor Frank P. Eckert über die vierte LP von Till Rohmann alias Glitterbug, die am 12. Mai 2014 bei Gold Pandas Label Notown erscheint. Die Beschreibung des gesamten Albums könnte auch zu dessen Titeltrack passen, für den die Multimedia-Künstlerin Ronni Shendar, mit der Rohmann auch bei Live-Auftritten zusammenarbeitet, in einer herbstlichen Berglandschaft einen stimmungsvollen Clip gedreht hat. Das Video gibt es bei uns als exklusive Premiere zu sehen!”
Ronni Shendar did this breathtakingly beautiful trailer as a teaser for the upcoming video for the title track of my upcoming album, Dust. The video will be premiered shortly, but we’re not allowed yet to publicly discuss where… The video was shot during three weeks in December 2013 in the Sierra Nevada and the Owens Valley, and I couldn’t think of anyone better than Ronni to capture the bare and wide beauty of this very special place on this planet. Make sure to watch in HD and full screen!!!
The lovely guys of Faze TV tried to bring me over for my last release already, but it never happened and nobody can remember why. Anyhow, I had a great time there and a really nice conversation with Sven, the host of the show. But have a look yourself!
For those of you that missed the DVD. Thanks again to dear Romi Agel and Holger Wick for making this possible!

I will post the feature here once it’s online, which usually happens a few weeks after the DVD release.
The video for ‘Passages’, taken from Glitterbug’s new album, ‘Cancerboy’, embarks on a twilight journey through a foggy, gloomy scenery. Rusty ships and doomed freighters appear from the horizon as if from a different time or place, abandoned and absent. It’s a place of the subconscious, a world suspended.
Glitterbug’s new album ‘Cancerboy’ examines and challenges the place between hope and death, and Ronni Shendar’s video follows him to this dreamlike place, where memories of lost friends seem to live on, close yet untouchable; a passage of in-between.
Ronni Shendar is an Israeli visual artist, working in the field of photography, video and live video performance. Her works have been presented in exhibitions and festivals internationally, among them Festival de Cannes and the Jewish Museum Frankfurt, and toured with Gold Panda (Ghostly) with her visuals and stage design.
Shendar and Glitterbug (Till Rohmann) have been collaborating for almost 10 years as curators, producers and artists whose work spans from video installations to their celebrated audio-visual live performance.
’Vacuity’ is the first part of my four part composition ‘Egress’, released earlier this month on False Industries. Imagine opening your eyes in a dead, dark, hostile place where everything is in ruins. That’s pretty much what ‘Vacuity’ is about, and I couldn’t imagine a more fitting visual translation of the piece than Ronni Shendar‘s video for it. Taken from the live premiere at the Plektrum Festival in Tallinn / Estonia, September 2011.
