Digital Architectural Trompe-l’oeil



French design firm Easyweb has been projecting video onto buildings, carefully mapped to follow the dimensions of the structure to give the illusion of depth and texture. It’s difficult to describe, so check out the video.

I’ve Been Stalking You On MySpace

I’ve been away for Spring break the past weekish, so to kick things back into gear, here’s something from my vacation: John B (I went to his show in Charlotte, NC two weekends ago).

If you haven’t come across John B in one of his many musical guises over the past decade, where have you been? Classically trained at a young age, this British superproducer has gone on to become one of the most eclectic and unique individuals working within electronic music today. Consistently escaping categorization, John’s genre-defying catalogue spans the worlds of Electro, Trance and Drum & Bass, and a few other spaces across the BPM spectrum.

Aside from his heavy touring schedule, he’s also signed to be a regular guest presenter on XM Radio’s Redux show every Sunday at 7pm EST. If his name isn’t familiar, maybe you’ve heard the track that loads with his MySpace page, appropriately named, “Stalking U On MySpace”:

I added the newest studio mix from his website to the podcast, so if you’re subscribed and don’t feel like searching through his material yourself, you’re good to go.

The Swingle Singers



Started in 1962 under the direction of Ward Swingle, The Swingle Singers perform virtuosic a capella vocal covers of classical music flavored with jazz harmonies and the occasional string bass and drum accompaniment. Their repertoire ranges from Chopin piano preludes, to Mozart violin sonatas, to Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, and everything in between.

The original French group disbanded in 1973, but have reformed several times since around the world, including the modern British incarnation which is currently on tour and recording. The current ensemble has a flashier style and tighter harmonies, but for me at least, nothing compares to the original group’s sensitivity and cohesiveness, especially their Anyone For Mozart, Bach, Handle, Vivaldi? and Bach Hits Back / Acapella Amadeus albums (US release titles). Here’s a track from the former album featuring the beautiful Christine Legrand, and a track from the new Swingle Singers’ recent album, Keyboard Classics.

Miss The Oscars?

Me too. Mostly because I don’t care, save this year’s inclusion of John Stewart. Enter the Internet, and BitTorrent – you can download the awards minus all those … awards, and just enjoy Stewart’s commentary.

Or for the extremely impatient, here’s a clip compiled from the best 15 minutes of his dialogue:
