quote of the day

Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory.

— Claude Debussy

A man standing alone in a shed hitting a bath with a mallet could be seen as mad, but in the world of sound design, it’s the norm. Ali Lacey is an eccentric sound design artist, and this short portrait allows us a closer look into the world of sound design.

documentary: Kraftwerk – Pop Art

Provokativ, experimentell, radikal, aber auch kommerziell und clubtauglich – all das ist Kraftwerk. Die Dokumentation nähert sich dem Phänomen und untersucht die popkulturelle Relevanz einer öffentlichkeitsscheuen Band aus dem Rheinland, die eine der einflussreichsten Popgruppen aller Zeiten wurde.

This awesome documentary is currently available online in the arte mediathek.
