Morgans Hotel Group x Recess Sessions

Posted on March 23, 2009 Under Music

If you’re seeking solace from news about bailouts and our tanking economy, look no further than the Recess Sessions. The project by the Morgans Hotel Group “seeks to capture the creative spirit and collaboration that drives independent musicians and filmmakers.” It shows artists performing on-site at Morgans properties in New York, London and L.A. Director Vincent Moon’s video of Brazilian singer/guitarist Curumin (and Au Revoir Simone) is calming and light, whereas Mark Wilkinson’s take on rockers Semi Precious Weapons at the Hudson is more raucous. Footage of Miho Hatori and Miss Derringer is said to be coming soon — as are user submissions, of course.
