*Like* :D – ‘Up’ music video!

I LOVE Pixar (little secret ..ssshhhh…it was one of my dream companies to work for back in the day)…so YAY for Pixar! 😀

Among its fantastic repertoire of animated films UP (Disney / Pixar film 2009) is one of my favs! Plus as some of you might know I also LOVE music! So you can imagine when I came across this awesome ‘Up music video’ 😀 …. well all I have to say is watch this before Disney yanks it out of cyber space!

It’s a composition of chords, bass notes, and vocal samples from the Disney/Pixar film Up, and it’s wonderful. 

Awesomely Fun – Talk about bringing music to life! :D

Seriously if you have a few minutes to spare or just want to have some ‘clean’ internet fun :)….then Seaquence is an uber fun interactive site where you can create and see your music in action! It is an experiment in musical composition, adopting a biological metaphor. Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made.

Seaquence is an original Gray Area Labs project created by Ryan Alexander, Gabriel Dunne, and Daniel Massey, with support from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.

All Star Animators Recreate the Entire Ocean Online

Truly ‘global’! Not only the content but also the creation of this amazing project. Top animators from Avatar and Tron, the director of MIT’s Media Lab have partnered with Wemo Media and other high profile activists to try to re-create the entire ocean ecosystem in an online 3D environment called theBlu!

This integration of artist /developer submissions is part social network and part educational tool. It is meant to be an interactive world where people can explore, learn and create online! 😀

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home (RAC Mix)

“Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is an indie folk band with quite a few experimental and psychedelic influences. Their single “Home” become one of my favorite songs of 2009. As jonkmusic puts it, “Home” is a victory march to everywhere and, in fact, it is everywhere you are. Recently, André Anjos of RAC released a very subtle remix of Home giving it a much dreamy sound”. – The Music Ninja

The Art of Time.

Artist Dominic Wilcox’s series of miniature time-based sculptures add yet another fun dimension to what would normally be considered the mundane.

His series of seven sculptures, features tiny, hand-crafted figures attached to the watch hands. The scenes on the watch hands come to life in their movement around the dial.
