Novo Amor


There is a stretch of road that runs through the Adirondack national park, just a few miles of houses and barns and truck stops and trees, that makes up Woodgate, New York. But just off from this road is a rough track that leads down to a lake, and a beach, and a cluster of old buildings. “And that’s where I spent my summer,” says Ali Lacey, better known as Novo Amor. “On a really deep lake with a dock surrounded by tall evergreens.” It was that summer that a lot of things changed for Lacey. He put away his interest in rock and heavy metal and film scores and began listening to what he describes now as “Music with a lot more emotional depth than the music I was listening to before.”

We decided to build the whale for real. It took 25 villagers from a small town in Bali, to build the 13 meter long design from bamboo. The whale needed 8 divers to control it underwater. 2 divers were pulling it with underwater scooters, 2 divers were inside flapping the whale’s fins, the other 4 helped to keep the whale buoyant. When we took the whale for its first swim, an underwater current pulled it down to 25m depth. Luckily, we were able to recover it. Birthplace - Novo Amor.
