The New Sound of Music (1979)

Posted by Scott



Fascinating BBC doc on history of recorded music featuring a whole lot of EMS synths including the Synthi 100 “Delaware” modular system (pictured below). Fun Fact: Years ago I had the opportunity to buy a Synthi 100 system in beautiful condition for a very reasonable price. For reasons I can’t explain now, I passed on it. Honestly, it would have been a nightmare to maintain and very impractical, but look at that thing. I still regret the decision every time I see a picture of a 100. These days my synth acquisition pace has slowed quite a bit, mostly just holding out for a Memorymoog LAMM and a Prophet 5, then I’ll be done.

Undone by scntfc

Posted by Jonathan








C Andrew Rohrmann or scntfc is a Seattle based multi-disciplinary audio + visual artist. He has been working in music, design, and media production for the past fifteen years. Rohrmann has completed many successful commissions including feature film scores, large scale audio installations, and art direction for commercial clients. The above is his series Undone:

Undone is an experiment in ambient cinema, comprised of an ever expanding series of short films revolving around the depiction of artificially constructed macroscopic environments. The intent is to evoke a sense of space that is ambiguous in terms of scale: simultaneously microscopically small and astronomically large.

Take a look at this amazing Flickr set of Undone stills.

Herman Miller Why Design Series

Posted by Jonathan












Why Design is a great video series by furniture company and all around design icon Herman Miller, which profiles some of it’s best designers:

At Herman Miller design is the language we use to ask questions and seek answers to the problems our customers face. The design process is a journey into the unknown—or as George Nelson once quipped, “I have never met a designer who was retained to keep things the same as they were.” Before we decide what we do and how we do it, we like to begin by asking the question “Why?” In Why Design, a new video series, we explore the world through the eyes of our designers, and share something of why we value their point of view.

Each Monday morning, from September 10th through October 29th, Herman Miller will launch a new designer profile at Why Design. The series includes:

9.10.12Yves Béhar“Surfing Is Like Improvisational Jazz”
9.17.12Don Chadwick“The Camera Becomes an Extension of Your Eyes”
9.24.12Ayse Birsel“Your Life Is Your Most Important Project”
10.1.12Irving Harper“Paper Is a Versatile Medium”
10.8.12Gianfranco Zaccai“Great Food Should Be Like Great Design”
10.15.12Studio 7.5“Design by Its Nature Is Collaborative”
10.22.12Steve Frykholm“It’s the Breaks That Allow My Mind to Refresh”
10.29.12Sam Hecht + Kim Colin“We Need Contrast and Tension to Be Able to Create”

ColorVision 2: Videos That Must Be Seen

Daphni - "Ye Ye" video


Slowly i’m filtering thru the latest videos that I think have been visually appealing and a bit more underground since the last Colorvision. Below are some experimental videos but also songs that I go back to in youtube playlists i’ve made.


Coyote Clean Up x Daytime TelevisionMcKayla Scowl
Many people might find this effect as the one that might frustrate you when you have a internet connection but its eased by such a gorgeous track.


Solar YearBrotherhood
In love with this one, good ideas sometimes bring your video budget down, you just need the right people making all the calls, really looking forward to the Solar Year record.


Vladislav DelayLevite
An old favorite uncovered, not really into the effect on this one, seems a bit preset-ish.


TrustDressed For Space
Everything by Trust has my ear this year, the man shouldn’t stop until each song has video.


DaphniPairs
I’m not sure if this is going to be the Daphni live show visuals but by the looks of Pairs and Ye Ye I can see some transitions happening.

Yoshi Sodeokas Analog Synthesized Video

Posted by Jakub





Yoshi Sodeoka is the man behind the latest video Elephant from Tame Impala. WHat you should know is that the man has been making analog synthesized videos since 2005 along with DVD, prints and also audio pieces. My favorite video has to be Violet Dark Spring of the Numinous Orb(poster and video above), its a little more my speed.
