Usually when people shoot photos of a city or Las Vegas for that matter, it’s long exposures with light trails in a clean and typical fashion. Fellow photographer Tim Navis took a much more interesting approach and shot this beautiful set of simulated double-exposures on his Canon 5d Mark II.
This is pretty bad, but due to the unusually high walnut to nostalgia ratio I couldn’t resist. If you don’t know what a Neo Geo is you’re either too young or there wasn’t that one rich kid at your school who, according to legend, had one with like ten games. This whole thing really could have worked with the inclusion of some stainless steel (a’la the Jupiter 6/8 side cheeks) and the omission of the my-uncle-built-these-cabinets-for-me rounded cartridge bezel. All in all pretty cool idea though; one of the only gaming consoles I wouldn’t feel obligated to hide.
This abomination of our collective unfulfilled childhood dreams can be yours for about the same (ridiculous) price as the original — $650 — direct from Analogue Interactive. Of course, if you actually want to play games on it, you’re going to have to double down.
I’m always pushing Sepalcure to everyone that I know, recently they did a remix for School Of Seven Bells, it has a great early Stereolab feel mixed in with some Bonobo, download it at XLR8R for free.
I did a collab song with Shigeto, i just brought him an array of warm tones and explained to him that I don’t want to do try and write drums for it and that he should try and he did a wonderful job I think,grab it at Shigeto’s bandcamp for free.
I was snooping around on Beamer’s last.fm and found some gems by Software, this sound rides a thin line for most people, if you can get over the hump of it being too smooth and take it in for what it is then you end up with a pretty damn good listening session.
Really refreshing illustration work from Kilian Eng. I’m really getting an Avant Garde Magazine / 70’s-80’s illustration vibe from all this. Love the use of texture, it all feels so authentic.
Here’s a slightly different take on the Monome / grid sequencer idea. Automata is a fun — and actually quite nice sounding — little Flash app by Batuhan Bozkurt in the same vein as Sound Matrix. The cool thing about this one is the directional settings allowing for some pretty complex interactions between notes (click a note multiple times to set direction). Have a good weekend.
Edit: Congrats to Yu Lien and Jennifer B, you won! See you tonight.

Unbelievably unbelievable Flickr set going on over here. Can’t get enough, that Sony stuff in particular is amazing. Want prints…
