Nice and Fresh and Greasy is a video-opera about beauty, commercialism and the freshness of grease. Its a musical video-collage in which video elements and music are tightly integrated in a dynamic, uplifting composition.
For this work, eddie d worked together with Dutch composer Jaap Dercksen who composed the music in conjunction with eddie d's editing process; after selecting and pre-editing some video and sound, eddie d sent this to Jaap the composer, who then wrote a ground layer of music, then he sent the score to eddie d who then edited more video and sent this to Jaap again and so on and so forth.
The footage is from an annoying phone-in tv gameshow and a old television commercial, rhythmically accompanied by a man playing the spoons. The work also shows that a nice tablecloth is always recommended.

eddie d worked together with composer Jaap Dercksen, who also played the Image Keyboard (originally developed for eddie d's first live project Soundmovie).
With this keyboard eddie d's video and sounds could be played live which made it just another instrument on stage thus integrating the visual with the music.
