Untitled 0165


Fond affections are never said
They're only sung in songs
I never was naive enough to know when I was wrong

There's no light at the end of it all
Let's all sit down and cry
There's no light at the beginning
Let's all sit down and cry

Now it's time to say goodbye
Now it's being forced upon you
It's just that person by your side remaining distant

Now the winter's growing close
The days are getting older
I can tell by your face
That your heart is getting colder

There's no light at the end of it all
Let's all sit down and cry
There's no light at the beginning
Let's all sit down and cry

Theremin Tapestry

Theremin Tapestry by Chicks on Speed (in conjunction with The Victorian Tapestry Workshop and hangar.org. Video feat: Theremin Player and collaborator: Merche Blasco). Theremin Tapestry made possible through the generous support of Victorian Tapestry Workshop, Craft Victoria and Melbourne City Council, Australia, Kunstverein Wolfsburg, IFA. Quite possibly it's been done before, but it's still pretty awesome!

So is this art or music?

This particular song below got me hooked on these Chicks years ago.

77 Million Paintings

77 Million Paintings.

Brian Eno will have his exhibit 77 Million Paintings up 'til December 13th. I read that the entire university museum has been 'reformulated' for the installation.

While Eno's Ambient Music wafts through the central gallery, his one-of-a-kind computer-generated images (each framed in black) are installed on walls painted in blood red.

The main attraction, however, is a side area that has been converted into a hushed, meditative theater where visitors can recline on comfortable couches and be swept away by the encounter. Since black carpets and dark walls block out all external light, six strategically located fixtures guide viewers to their seats. Created from conical piles of crushed Vermiculite, they are illuminated by an overhead LED system that slowly changes colors from red, blue, green, and yellow.

Eno's soft, inimitable sound permeates the air while a large, ever-changing image appears on the wall. Resembling a radiant stained-glass window, it is produced by three computers generated 400 images each, and one central computer overlaying 60 images. The music is so meditative and the design changes are so elusive, that it is hard to notice them at first. But slowly, surely, almost imperceptibly, the patterns mutate into an endless series of visual configurations that become hypnotic, even spiritual.
