edition of euro max i'm your host meghan lee it's good to be back in the studio here's a look at what we've got star. a piece of cake this is not an accident it's a popular dessert from brush up. getting the hey find out why you're all next reporter max merrill and look for amped up from head to toe in rock. first dutch painter vincent van gogh is one of the most famous artists of the nineteenth century now that wasn't the case when he was living but now has works are instantly recognizable due to his stylized brushstrokes volumes have been written on his works and their meaning and animated movie was recently released about his life well now a digital museum in paris is going us step further by displaying hundreds of his works immersing visitors in a full sensual experience. it
11:32 pm
seems as if vincent van gogh one stitch tell us something. and this is hers here can almost feel the delicate breeze of the starry night. eight hundred eighty nine masterpiece in french twenty is what gives the multimedia exhibition in paris in him yet its name. nikkei who is the director of the digital culture center located in a former metal foundry the cultural agency could to esperance has long experimented with ways of allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the work of the dutch painter with all their senses. through its pass through a spell of says developed a new technology called a music's arts music immersive experience the idea is to connect the images with music creating a virtual reality in which one coughs paintings become
11:33 pm
a unique arts experience that will give us hope. to do this one hundred forty video projectors lined up some three thousand three hundred square metres a projection space over five hundred paintings and drawings shine as large format three d. animations on the ten meter high walls. a special soundtrack complete the excursion in. the world of bold intense colors. really affected vanguard has a painter who is very well suited for an immersive exhibition like here in the till yea delineator. the large format projections make it possible to highlight the work structure as a result vince of vanguard's work can be examined very closely and that's what clicked on a bunch of us along. the light and sound shell lasts about thirty five minutes. maybe
11:34 pm
exhibition made me cry it's really emotional and beautiful the installation gives us the feeling that we're standing right next to the painter. was the light projections really bring out his use of color it'll. fit indescribable to this mix of music and pitches it's like therapy simply fantastic it's a very different experience from seeing the pictures in a museum it was more like telling a story and i thought it was very nice. the digital exhibition doesn't work with originals but that means it can display an artist's complete works in one place and therefore reach an entirely different target group. to see the democrats it is also a way to democratize access to art and culture but it's also a real work of art in itself. it's a digital work but an artwork of its own artist to get all to.
11:35 pm
this is yours to paris have until the end of the year to be transported into the heart of vincent van gox expressive and powerful works. this classical musician mixing muse of all genres like few before hand. pianist maxine that man beats up has become somewhat of a superstar in asia for his the classical interpretations on pop music now he uses his solid classical music training to expand into other areas that beats his music is drawing in crowds who would rarely attend a class of music concert be caught up with him as he tours europe with his latest album new silk road.
11:36 pm
recognize this piece of music it's the well known in the home of the mountain king by norwegian composer edvard greek written in one thousand sixty seven when mixing their beats and plays it it's neither classical nor pop it's his very own version. or that was a student at the college i was like a classical puritan hours someone told me back then and they're going to do cross or else they are crazy there's no way i don't know why and i was so very very into classical music and then i said you know we need to find a way to introduce younger audience to classical music because otherwise. one day they want to continue the tradition of classical music. to croatian pianists crossover concept seems to work it excites audiences including
11:37 pm
those at his very first berlin concert. the third day he's so wild so full of emotion and all of it at the same time so you don't know where to go with your feelings it's totally crazy something i've never heard before you know it is a bit different but i'm not such a big fan of classical music but the way mixes things up. brings them together with so much energy that is unique as i thought this would be for us to go to the opera or to all the stuff it's like is over their head because is it a language or something that they don't understand or recognize or something like this is something that you recognize. beautifully it's a comes from sheba neck in croatia at the age of eight he discovered the piano at a friend's house and fell in love with it and classical music. i don't know if my parents or none of my friends are know and they were connected
11:38 pm
with classical music that was quite surprising for them why do i want to play classical piano i thought as i started to play in the world in music school i knew that something which i want to be all my life. when he was fifteen war broke out in croatia which was then part of yugoslavia during that time his connection to music and the piano grew even closer his music school to shut down but he continued to have lessons in the basement. it was like kind of always told me you know and my teacher and all cause you know be thrown into the beautiful music just helps to talk you know separate you know reality which was horrendous i'm terrible at the time and. despite the horrors of the war he was able to prepare for a national piano competition in zagreb. under the care played and i wanted to first
11:39 pm
prize and it was like huge success and i was. but both so i'm believable and my peter was crying and i always said the flag one of the biggest work through the my life not just because you know i won the competition but because of the whole situation what was right and wrong and not just a vote against that situation continue. later he studied classical piano in zagreb budapest and paris and smarmy but surely made a name for himself as a virtuoso. he once played the flight of the bumblebee by nikolai rimsky-korsakov in just fifty six seconds he became known as one of the fastest pianists in the world his modern interpretation of the piece also appeared on his first crossover album the piano player in two thousand and three it was a career breakthrough to date he has sold more than four million albums in fifty
11:40 pm
seven countries. a couple of months of my life turned upside down and i signed the here which calls for two of the biggest you know record labels in the world it's like a dream come true from one situation to another. interview to has so far released eleven albums he plays concerts world why. his greatest success has been in asia in japan and china he play shows with lots of effects in large concert halls in front of tens of thousands of spectators and to his fans he's a superstar. to see that there's so many people who are except your ears are very like your music i think it's very rewarding for every artist you know and special look of in a friend of corn for the ethic like friends that i have. in addition to classical pieces he also gives familiar pop songs a new sound like john legend's all of me. and
11:41 pm
how does he deal with the critics who don't know what to make of his classical pop fusion. for the people who like large or luckily there's a. lot of this where there's. not seemly out of its plans to keep experimenting with musical styles to get even more people excited about crossover and classical music. is probably happened to all of us at one time or another rewiring along in. you accidentally drop a potted plant making a mess everywhere but the guard grisette skin who once did the same thing saw calling mary opportunity in this dirty mess the russian chef had the unusual idea of turning it into a dessert now it's become
11:42 pm
a hit and thanks to instagram not only in his restaurant in st petersburg. there are among the very first we make a flower pot using a silicone baking. powder. will make it look like the plot is broken record of bill's. now will fill it with moves made of sour cream and call it how we thought of her theory of how it is actually a turkish dessert made from various nuts and seeds i criticise you sensibly seeds. i remember from my childhood is made of sunflower seeds. it happened to all of us as children messing around at home and accidently knock
11:43 pm
over a flower pot. but that's it. exactly what i wanted to capture. and then you think oh no i'm in trouble now but if. the baltimore school next we had a teaspoon of pepper ice cream. there's a no it symbolizes the punishment i want to cause and. punishment with pepper ice cream is the logical next step every prank is punished in the end. of course i'm not going to spank my guests but punish them with pepper ice cream it bites the tongue. out of the spirits on the ship with music. being is filled with earth which we make from chocolate brownies. visitors and the garnish is also completely edible at the super fresh mint and of bellflower here to talk.
11:44 pm
to trick here is to serve the desert on a real parquet floor tile. zimmer. the soil spilled on the floor splinters of the broken part of the crumpled flower and i'm telling the whole story. on average we sell two thousand of these flower pots a month. that's twenty four thousand a year for a restaurant with seven different desserts on the menu. maurya still i long dreamed of making a dish that would be the talk of the town. some spirits.
11:45 pm
of smear of the old and then i did it go over. but at the same time this dessert is really stealing the show if the given one you. can use the critics i do a lot of new dishes must so many original desserts all with ideas and messages behind them is new what's that those is the one you. think i want my guests to notice them as well. but this flower pot just there is so popular that it's all it's the limelight. the business of i'll have to invent something that takes some of the shine off of that dessert with something so original that it surpasses the flower of positive action is how we do it in the. next step is it a bird or a plane you know it's just
11:46 pm
a bunch of man among them you're all max reporter max mare all dressed up as straw bearers now why are they doing this you might as well europe is filled with interesting traditions and one of them in germany involves strawberries and legend has it that they have here in late winter early spring to ward off the last cold bits of the winter season max travel to the heart of germany to find out all about it. it's the stuff of nightmares once a year these creatures are let loose in the quaint village of his are located in the german state's business the town has a small population of just five hundred people but it boasts a grand tradition the strong and i'm going to be one of them. now in the countryside there's plenty of hay and today my charland is to wear
11:47 pm
a forty kilo outfit. my outfit of the day is made of hey. as an outsider i will be the last to get dressed up plenty time for a little research at the village museum. time magazine i'd like to learn a little bit more about the origins of the strawberry tradition how did it all begin and that's how it's gone. sufficient to well that's pretty uncertain as if we've known the strawberry day since childhood has the same goes for parents with mule but i don't really know the specific date it's always been about driving winter away in the synopsis. back to the bar the amount of straw left over from the winter season dictates how many stroll best can take this year there's enough to make six the so-called breaking of the limbs is necessary otherwise you couldn't move in the tightly wrapped straw. once you're wrapped up it's time
11:48 pm
to weight the fact that i'm allowed to take cost is a special exception whether it was such a good idea i'm not so sure about that anymore. i'm up next real pros are at work here none of them i'm doing this for the first time it can take up to two hours to wrap the bed up in straw most dresses have been a strong themselves that doesn't mean they take any pity on me no special treatment they wrap me up as tightly as they can. but where am i here my office by the back of my office by life how far from your behind. there's still some space left. this is tough work. dressing process
11:49 pm
is actually somewhat dangerous for us bez quite. if you have fainted when wrapped up too tightly this is one of the reasons why the straw has to be broken at the joints. if. it's a few inches about it i think you're born of the ancient tradition has what i wrote me to my knees this should give me a little more freedom of movement but it's hard to stay balanced on top. of that little time to take my first few steps meanwhile. there's no better friendly taxi available like bales of hay where carted to the starting point in the back of a tractor and i feel pretty helpless. to slowly i'm regretting my decision but at least there's someone to take care of me. good i'll be taking care of you today as you'll bear laid out if there's any
11:50 pm
problem just let me know if it's cold i trust you completely of course i didn't have much choice. every strawberries let alone a chain by a local lady part of the tradition. only young men have been dressed up the oldest in their late twenties because this is exhausting each of us lugging around forty kilos. walking is hard enough but now all the bears are supposed to dance back in the day this was an opportunity for the young villages to get a bit closer with a safe area of stroll between them. after two very long hours there's a final race a race to freedom i can barely take it anymore and the others feel the same all of us bears end up in the sweaty heat. finally we are cut out of our costumes want to torture.
11:51 pm
well. but it feels great to be freed i'm good at this reception. a long march at the big bomb fire i'm quite happy to see the stroll we were wrapped in burns to a crisp from the mushroom menace. well that's about as hot as i felt in the course soon but it was a really lovely day in a really great tradition because everyone in the village came together everyone had a great time time it feels like it really brings the community as. the end of my toughest tasco so you're a much supporter i'm pretty sure that was the last straw in my short lived career.
11:52 pm
home fact that loved it as well you can see a longer version of max's quirky adventure on our youtube channel. now make up is normally used to enhance your best features but make up artist a luke uses it for a completely different game he creates optical illusions on his face and head as disturbing as some of these images may be there is no doubt that luke has an amazing talent for transformation. it's a master of optical illusions and to create them he needs nothing more than a brush and some makeup normally a makeup artist and shoes that his clients look fresh and natural but when it comes to his own appearance he prefers to distort and produce three to illusions. that are brought together into your this ng all up on the one i'd love to draw ever
