Sound of Noise

Sound of Noise is a 2010 Swedish-French comedy-crime film written and directed by Ola Simonsson and Johannes Stjärne Nilsson. It tells the story of a group of musicians who illegally perform music on objects in the various institutions of a city. The film is a follow-up to the 2001 short film Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers, which was made by the same people and followed the same basic concept. The title comes from the Italian futurist Luigi Russolo’s 1913 manifesto The Art of Noises.

Directed by Matt Day, The Shape of Things to Come, shows him busy with his family in his self build house, eating self grown food and rehearsing and touring with his current project called Zammuto. He even goes in to some detail about how to make percussive beats utilising record clicks and a PVC Pipe.

Nayoa Hatakeyama – Natural Stories

One of Japan’s most prominent photographers, Naoya Hatakeyama is known for austere and beautiful large-scale pictures that capture the extraordinary forces we deploy to shape nature to our will — and, in photographs made after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the equally powerful impact of natural forces on human construction. – sfmoma.com
