We’ve truly entered an exiting era of new “user experiences” and no front is exempt. From web and mobile platforms, art installations, to film and video games, there seems to be a sense that no frontier is unreachable and what one day seemed impossible, has been surpassed beyond our wildest dreams, forever altering our perception on whats “real”. Enter Box.
Box is a live performance film by Bot & Dolly, that documents a first ever live synchronized performance using 3D Projection Mapping, Robots and Actors:
Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping on moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance, captured entirely in camera. Bot & Dolly produced this work to serve as both an artistic statement and technical demonstration. It is the culmination of multiple technologies, including large scale robotics, projection mapping, and software engineering. We believe this methodology has tremendous potential to radically transform theatrical presentations, and define new genres of expression.

Ladies and gentlemen we have album of the year potential going on right above this text. I love how he keeps his sounds always in motion, shifting through different emotional connections you might have made with certain melodies.
Earlier this month we released the title track of The Field’s upcoming album Cupid’s Head, and we would like to say thanks to everyone who’s shown their support and the positive response we’ve received thus far;
“Back in 2007, he introduced From Here We Go Sublime with “Over the Ice”; on “Cupid’s Head”, Willner’s going through the smoke.”
“The album is his first to be recorded entirely using ‘real’ gear – no computers in sight kids – and you can certainly hear that in ‘Cupid’s Head’s shimmering textures and brittle beatbox beats.”
Now, as a pre weekend treat, and a few days before its official release on September 30th
TMMRW must have just perfected the future of New Age.
Absolutely Free comes to us from all different angles, can’t really put this in a genre, feels like Her Space Holiday remixes chained together, not feeling the screaming but i’ll sit through it for the other parts.
If you’re playing GTA V then i’m guessing you’ve heard the new Clams Casino?
100% Silk has been orchestrating the soft late night house from a distance to the point of perfection, such a solid label, here’s one from a recent signing Les Level.
Shaun Kardinal embroiders everything from vintage postcards to books. I alway love looking through vintage postcards but i’ve never really done anything with them besides put them away in a box, glad someone is getting a little creative and reworking them into something that isn’t a cut up collage for the first time in the 21st century.
If you asked me who i’d like to make music with that isn’t a legend of some sort i’d say Juana Molina, she has a great way of finding out what sounds good on repeat, I find that as one of the most important gifts in making any sort of noise.
The Beat Broker is always on the ISO50 blog, this jam feels like it was made for the blog, heavy melancholia that sits right outside the atmosphere and sketches across into your peripheral vision coloring it in with only the most lush experience.
Machinedrum has this tweaked out speedy dance music on autopilot, he delivers every time these days.
Cascine holding down that soft spot in our hearts, always finding those artists that deliver bliss and Ditt Inre isn’t any different.
Reuben Wu put together a breathtaking collection of photos from his 6,000 mile road trip across the US.

Just wanted to preview some new work here and write a quick post about an opening I’m having tomorrow night at Subtext Gallery in San Diego, California called Anium.
The show is split into two parts, still and motion. There will be 24 print pieces on display and 4 video installations. I’m really excited about the video installations but they’re still being wrapped up, so you’ll have to drop in to check them out. The goal was to create short moving posters with no related theme. There will be 3 small 27″ screens that we’ve rehoused and one 8 ft monolith with a 50″ screen.
If you’re in the area or close, come on by! It’d be great to meet some people from the blog!
The show will be up from September 13th – October 13th at Subtext gallery in San Diego. Click here for the Facebook event. If you can’t make the opening or are interested in checking out the show online, here’s the full preview of the show and ways to purchase prints.
