Gangnam’s style | Seoul, Korea

:

Music as muse – high energy

It’s no secret that music is a drug. When I’m taking or processing pics, I’m almost always listening to something. Sometimes I need something that will help me ramp up creativity. These days I find myself listening to Tiestos Club Life for that. But for this image, “Resident: Two Years of Oakenfold at Cream” was just that CD. It’s an epic recording from back in 1999. When I was processing this pic of Gangnam, the track that really inspired me was his mix of CJ Bolland’s song The Prophet. If that is not deep or dark enough for you, check out the original. I would give up a day of my life to go back and hear this track one more time at Amnesia or Space in Ibiza.

About the photo: Gangnam’s style

These three buildings make up the Samsung Headquarters in Gangnam Seoul. I’m surprised they weren’t in Psy’s video. I read somewhere that Samsung originally wanted to build one 111 story skyscraper, but there is a 200m government imposed limitition on all buildinga in in Seocho, so they built three smaller buildings instead. Either way, I think the architect was a big Ayn Rand fan. As the dude in The Prophet says, “Do you think your special?”
