Time Lapse Phonography

The concept of time-lapse photography might be common to some of you.  Andrew Spitz (a South African sound designer and founder of Social Sound Design) has expanded this idea a little bit:

Sampled Room

Two wine glasses, panties, a bottle opener, a hair drier, some tape, a spring, an old UDSSR camera, a spanner, a tube pack and some water. What else to do with these items than to make some music, right?

Fuck you. Pay me.

Although this talk by Mike Monteiro (Design-Director and co-founder of Mule Design Studios) focuses on some basic guidelines for freelance designers to survive in this dirty business, I think it´s worth a look for everyone who is self employed or otherwise enganged in the vast field of cultural/creative sevices.

Soundsculptures: Zimoun

This video features the sound sculptures and installations by a Swiss artist named Zimoun. Using different materials like wires, cables and chains on dc motors or even woodworms as sound sources, his installations create constantly moving streams of mechanical, yet organic sounds. The video is actually quite long but presents a beautiful continuum of noisy clicks and buzzing sounds.
