Weekend Inspiration: Alberto Seveso

Posted by Jonathan










Italian artist Alberto Seveso was born in Milan, but is now working as a freelancer in Portoscuso, Sardinia-Italy. In his series a due Colori Seveso experiments with high-speed photography while trying to find a new way to make something beautiful using ink and water. Loving to play with colors and tones, this series embodies the concept of stopping time through ink in the image.

Hauschildt + Courtship + Knx. + Indians

Posted by Jakub




Sabrina Ratte has done it again and this time its for this upcoming Steve Hauschildt upcoming release. The song alone would have been a true pleasure but Sabrina came in created a beautiful world for it, as always perfecting inversion/decay/color.

Courtship’s [Imageless] caught me off guard on his recent EP, it wasn’t asking for my attention, its as almost like you were watching the song happen, it settles in the distance like a slow moving still, the dialog makes it though, it drops you back into reality in seamless way.

4AD signs an unknown Danish man that goes under the name Indians(how was that not taken?), sounds like something Bibio will one day become.

Knxwledge aka Knx. has the loosest sounding beat out there, almost to the point that it almost sounds like your wood block jacob’s ladder is struggling to work again. My favorite part about him is the quickness he gets in and out of a song, he makes me come back and play his songs 7 or 8 times so I can get the full satisfaction out of them, beat makers take note.

Kyle Thompson

Posted by Scott










Self described surrealist photographer Kyle Thompson has been doing some very interesting work over the past year. He’s a really interesting case of someone simply creating incredible art and gaining exposure based on nothing more than his talent and hard work — and a little internet luck. I first saw his work on Reddit a while back (I know, it’s a veritable wasteland over there but once in a while some truly good things rise to the surface) and while conceptually it was pretty engaging, the execution just wasn’t there. Skip forward a bit and Kyle’s work popped up on again today. This guy has really progressed in a very short time. Check out his original submission and compare to his recent work. Night and day; I’ve seen people spend years traversing the space that separates these two galleries.

Universal Everything Studio Documentary

Posted by Charles

Matt Pyke at Universal Everything has done some incredible work over the years. Every time they release something new I’ll watch it at least 10 times trying to figure out what’s going on. In my opinion, some of the most creative, colorful and technically complex visuals have come out of this studio. Interestingly, The Creators Project has done a short documentary on Matt, giving us a glimpse into his studio and way of thinking about his work. If you’ve got the time, it’s a great watch and if you’ve got a little more time head over to the Universal Everything site and Vimeo to check out the work.

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.
