Men In Grey
Topic: Arts 11:10 am EST, Nov 24, 2011
System Primitives:

    We are the direct manifestation of a Citizen's Network Anxiety; our metal and
    flesh yields from a citizen's networked fears, doubts, delusions and the lies of others. 

    We carry the signal and as such are a part of that signal. What passes through
    the air will pass through us. 

    We span the space between the invisible and the corporeal; as Adaptors
    comprised of flesh and metal, we capture and reconstruct that which hides in
    the air.

    We are prisms: a citizen's network fears, doubts, delusions, desires and lies will
    be revealed through us. 

    We are the lightning in an age of Cloud Computing.

Wooden Model of a 3D MRI Scan
Topic: Arts 10:53 pm EST, Nov 24, 2008

Neil Fraser, a software engineer at Google, took 9 carefully selected cross sections from a MRI scan and glued them on wooden blocks to create a 3D representative model. The result is a collection of 60 1-inch cubes, of wich 94 outside faces are simply varnished, and 266 internal faces feature a square slice of the MRI images. One can then "dig" into the brain to carve out custom shapes.

Someone build giant dominoes from dominoes. You can see the flexion and movement within the dominoes that you normally couldn't see. Quite neat.

Pretty cool. If you are going to go to all that trouble though, why not a few more camera angles and some high speed photography to go with it?

A motion picture essay which takes a revealing and shocking look at modern life and its imbalances. The first film in a trilogy which was followed by Powaqatsi.

If you like the 'Qatsi Trilogy, check out Baraka and Chronos. Both were directed by the cinematographer of Koyaanisqatsi, Ron Fricke.

An exciting partnership and experience regarding this release will be announced soon.

Wow. I just learned about Still last weekend, and I haven't listened to the remixes of Year Zero, and now they make 36 new tracks available for 5 bucks! Looks like I've got a lot of listening to do!

It's really good. I was jamming the FLACs today on my headphones at work, made it through 20 of 36, #19 being my favorite thus far. I dig this concept. Trent is doing it right 100%.

I ordered the Deluxe set to support the cause and get the nice art, vinyl, blu-ray, the prints, and the WAV source files of the multitrack session. Really not a bad deal, it's limited to 2500 copies too so it will at least retain its value if not go up.

garfield minus garfield
Topic: Arts 11:24 am EST, Feb 28, 2008

Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?

Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and methamphetamine addiction in a quiet American suburb.

Graffiti Research Labs - Laser Painter
Topic: Arts 3:31 pm EDT, Oct 22, 2007

Re-memeing this because this is the project used at Phreaknic this year (Friday night) out on the balcony. Neat stuff!

* * *

This is truly awesome. The folks at Graffiti Research Labs created a rig that facilitates painting with light on the side of a building. It uses a high lumens projector to project the light, a green laser pointer to do the writing, and a security/astrononmy camera to detect where the green laser was pointed. They have made all the code available under the GPL.

Here is video of them using the rig via YouTube:

A stacked deck
Topic: Arts 11:30 am EDT, Jul 10, 2007

This seems pretty cool.

As a musician and pioneering turnable player-improviser, Christian Marclay has recorded with such collaborators as the Kronos Quartet, Sonic Youth and John Zorn. He has built "unplayable" musical instruments — including a 25-foot-long accordion — and created such signature works as "Video Quartet" and "Crossfire," film clip remixes powering mind-bending interactions among images, soundscapes and music.

Marclay's new photography book, "Shuffle," packaged as an oversize deck of cards, is an invitation to play along with his view of aural and visual potentialities.

Introducing: Sugarknife at FlightDynamics
Topic: Arts 9:20 pm EDT, Apr 26, 2007

It’s official - the first single by Logickal is hitting the streets on dPulse! It’s slowly creeping out to thee Internets by way of some of your favorite download services, with more to come in the next few days.

Big thanks go to the remixers - BlueDeceiver and Maurice Syntax provided their own personal interpretations of the title track, which is in some ways an homage to some of the sounds of my heroes - take 2 parts SP/Doubting Thomas/Download and mix with mid-period Coil and blend with some old-fashioned Logickal layering. Both remixes add take the formula and discard it completely, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Speaking of remixes, we decided to feature Randy Garcia’s Polar Attractor remix from Krushjob on this single, so big thanks to him for the stellar track as well.

I should also note here that Sugarknife features the sugary voice of Angelique Fisher, the knife-edged tones of John Sharp and the wonderful contact-mic’ed skulduggery of Mr. Natural on the sugar bowl and chef’s blade. Hints may also be heard of young Master Ryne lurking about in there somewhere as well. Thank you, my wonderful friends and collaborators.

Rounding out this single release are new improvisations called Students Fear The Three Cs (the stylistic partner to Krushjob’s Feels Atomic which is also included here) and the soothing Lullabye 43. I do hope you all enjoy - I have included a player from here for your listening pleasure, but please don’t forget about the download links below. If your favorite service isn’t yet listed (and I can think of a certain largeish service that is so far conspicuous by its absence), do not despair - I have been assured that they will be available shortly!
