Parisian Singer Mohini Geisweiller
(and a creepy thing on the floor, may be her inner turmoil)
From the Director, Danakil: "In a house surrounded by trees, Mohini hyperventilates into a paper bag to calm her anxiety - she is being haunted by Christlike visions, vodka drinks, and a projection of her soul as a strange creature. Alone in a car with this surreal shape of her vital bodily functions, she attempts to escape her darkness." Yikes! And we thought the Germans were twisted. Mohini is a Parisian singer, recently championed by fashion designer Mark Jacobs, who named her one of his "It Girls" for 2011. She hasn't really broken in the U.S., and it is hard to imagine that her brand of low-intensity techno purring really has a place in the U.S. market. That's okay though. Her soundtrack is entrancing even if you don't look at the video, like Hamburger Helper without the hamburger. But you add in that beef and you've got...I'm not sure. Check it out.-RAR
If "Milk Teeth" didn't satisfy your need for low intensity techno, check out "Sex in Dallas", which features the Mark Jacobs model having a hard time escaping a photographer to get dressed for the video.
While we are reviewing the music stylings of 2011 "It Girls" (see Mohini Geisweiller above), why not an offering from Alka Balbir, another of Mark Jacob's selections. The Louis Vuitton model is also a film and stage actress, as well as a singer.
