More flat speakers?!?!

Just a couple of months ago I posted THESE amazing flat speakers coming out of Taiwan. And now I see these that were actually published even earlier. I think the ones from Taiwan will actually sound better though but still, these are amazing! A groundbreaking new loudspeaker, less than 0.25mm thick, has been developed by

Birds, in concert

This is the first time I’ve really seen this phenomenon on video. Too bad it’s such low quality but still beautiful to watch. There’s a photographer, I think Italian, who does some great black & white photos of this sort of thing too. Sorry, couldn’t find the name in the few minutes I had to

Sound Sculpture

This is a nice little piece by Daniel Franke called “One Minute Sound Sculpture”. The idea of a sculpture made from sound is really intriguing to me and something I hope to explore in the near future. This guy’s take on it is pretty cool and he’s really good at tracking an animation and placing

Vincent Ganivet sculptures

French artist Vincent Ganivet makes beautiful and sculptures using mostly common building materials. They appear simple until you actually realize the work involved in making free-standing arcs and circles from cinder blocks.

The machine “takes a picture of the sitter and draws it but with the model’s help. The wrists of the individual are tied to

Flat paper speakers..the future of sound?

Well, our dreams are becoming a reality. Scientists in Taiwan have developed a flexible paper speaker by sandwiching paper and CNTs together. ”Aside from use in family, stereo, or

Visualizing Music

Really dope motion graphics by Belgian artist Gwen Vanhee exploring new ways to interpret music. Finding new and innovative ways to translate sound to visuals and vice versa always fascinates me. The graphics by themselves are great but the context and execution really bring them to a higher level. I highly recommend checking out some

We Were Once A Fairy Tale

Crazy new video from Kanye West…say what you will but the man’s got talent, vision and balls…yeah, he makes mistakes too, just like a normal human being…plus, the dude vomits and bleeds rose petals!! UPDATED- sorry…didn’t realize the Vimeo link was broken..Kanye posted it on his own site so you’d think it was legit..anyway here
