From A Lyric A Day, an ongoing art and design experiment by J. J. Del Rosario involving visual interpretations of song lyrics.
Speaking of skulls…
MinuSkull is by Kuntzel+Deygas, a creative duo from France who usually work in illustration and animation (an example of their handy work are the famous opening titles of Steven Spielberg’s movie “Catch me if you can”), but have now ventured into product design with these cool little skull-shaped speakers starting from 1600 euros… (yep, you read right)
Frank Capra: “Film is one of the three universal languages, the other two: mathematics and music.”
Couldn’t agree more.

If you click on the infographic, you’ll launch an interactive map detailing the evolution of western dance music over the last 100 years. It shows the time and place where each of the music styles were born and which blend of genres influenced the next. Of course, this is a pretty complex subject and how you define various genres of music as well as determine where they initially came from are subject to further debate.
”From here to ear (version 15)” by French musician and composer Céleste Boursier-Mougenot is showing at the HangarBicocca gallery’s Cube in Milan until Dec 4.
I prefer to call this widely acclaimed exhibition of his “the Rock’n’Roll Birds.”
Céleste adds percussion to his previous use of electric guitars and zebra finches. The beauty of it is, without even being aware of it, the birds create some wonderful audio pieces, simply by flying around and eating the seeds that are placed on the instruments.
It’s @WQXRclassical’s poster celebrating Beethoven Awareness Month. What’s not to obey? Beethoven’s always been large and in charge in my book, at least.

When music equals trance, it puts me in a very good mood.
Was up and at ‘em at six this morning, went to training, had a shower, made breakfast, checked my feeds, started writing, all to Follow the Sunrise 2011. May have taken the girl out of Ibiza, but Judge Jules has left an indelible mark on my musical leanings.
I will forever love trance.

Listened to this interview yesterday. Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons speaks to host, Audie Cornish, about the early days of their label.
Believe it or not, it’s been 25 years since LL Cool J’s “I Need A Beat” was remixed and released on Def Jam records. (Now LL’s acting on NCIS LA. Nuts.) And the Beastie Boys. Licensed to Ill. Although, I do prefer Ill Communication, their studio album via Grand Royal Records. Don’t you?
