From the Basement – Nigel Godrich is a rather mysterious individual who is serious about great performances of talented musicians and not too keen on external diversions. The creator of From the Basement blessed us with this terrific project – 100% pure music performances. But what makes From the Basement so unique is its underlining principle: capturing artists “in a way that lets their talents speak without the interference of presenters, or audiences.”
All videos are HD, and Nigel handles the audio as well, which makes you feel like you’re right there, behind the speakers. Nigel believes that once TV and broadcast pressures are taken out of the performance equation, musicians can do what they do best, only better… In this one of a kind Basement you’ll find Grade-A artists such as Radiohead, Beck and Jose Gonzales, just to name a few (look for the video list on the right). Dive into the majestic project called From the Basement. It’s an experience you’ll find nowhere else online.
