Pitchfork Cover Story: Station to Station: The Past, Present, and Future of Streaming Music ]

I’m giving props to Pitchfork for this article, because it’s not only well-written, but really fun to read. I dug into the layout a little and found this interview w Pitchfork’s Creative Director,

and the article also refers to a NY Times article that is similarly impressive, about the avalanche at Tunnel Creek:

Of course, I know nothing about designing pages like this, but I dig it. It’s especially fun to read on a tablet.

Play House

Play House is an automaton that generates slow hypnotic music through mechanisms built from Lego Technic. This piece was made for AudioGraft 2014 with a commission from Oxford Contemporary Music.

A favorable review! My DC experimental electronica buddy makes an appearance on 27teethdc, a music blog representing the district. Earned the “hard” psychedelia merit badge. I concur. 

NEW MUSIC! Part of a Bleepsequence compilation that’s due to drop very soon. The theme of the album is DREAMS; my contribution is called The Future.

it might be that it’s almost 2AM, but this made me laugh really damn hard. Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity” without music and overdubbed imagined sound effects.

Some good ‘ol left-field selections in this. I enjoyed this thoroughly.

Koyaanisqatsi (1982)

A movie with no conventional plot: merely a collection of expertly photographed scenes and a visual concert of images set to the haunting music of Phillip Glass.

Translation of the Hopi Prophecies sung in the film:

  • "If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster."
  • "Near the Day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky."
  • "A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky, which could burn the land and boil the oceans."

please see this film!!

*This is currently available in full for free on Vimeo and Hulu (you can avoid commercials with Vimeo). Ron Fricke went on to direct Baraka, which is, you know, amazing.

This is a fantastic collection of piano improvisations from different public places. It also includes a lot of random conversations at these locations, really brings you in, takes you on a little journey. That sounded corny, but this is still something you should listen to this morning. Break the mundane this Wednesday.

Great podcast by a great website here in DC doing it’s part to promote local musicians. I’m on the mix! One of my solo violin tracks closes the show. Everything else is worth the listen, a little of a lot of different genres representing the District.
