YWFT America’s playlist as follows:
The Raveonettes “Lust Lust Lust”
I heard the Raveonettes late one night when some music channel had those shows where they would play new videos by upcoming artists. Would have been in 2003 and the video was for “Attack of the Ghost Riders” I really think they are amazing. This album is no exception.
The Nostalgia 77 Octet “Weapons of Jazz Destruction”
Amazing group. They can do no wrong in my eyes. I buy almost everything they do. If you are into real jazz, you should check this.
Build an Ark “Dawn”
I was so happy when I heard this was coming out. Even happier when I heard it. Spiritual Jazz today? Yep. It’s good and very real. My personal favorite right now. Carlos Nino for president.
Maybe this can help freshen your day up.
Hjalti Karlsson and Jan Wilker, aka Karlsson Wilker, were shipped to Africa by the Design Indaba conference. They had them create a new piece of work each day in reaction to their travels. Creative Review has the story.
The 1301 fluorescent tubes are powered only by the electric fields generated by overhead powerlines. Richard Box, artist-in-residence at Bristol Universityâ€™s physics department, got the idea for the installation after a chance conversation with a friend. â€˜He was telling me he used to play with a fluorescent tube under the pylons by his house,â€™ says Box. â€˜He said it lit up like a light sabre.â€™ Box decided to see if he could fill a field with tubes lit by powerlines. After a few weeks hunting for a site, he found a field, slipped the local farmer Â£200 and planted 3,600 square metres with tubes collected from hospitals. A fluorescent tube glows when an electrical voltage is set up across it. The electric field set up inside the tube excites atoms of mercury gas, making them emit ultraviolet light. This invisible light strikes the phosphor coating on the glass tube, making it glow. Because powerlines are typically 400,000 volts, and Earth is at an electrical potential voltage of zero volts, pylons create electric fields between the cables they carry and the ground. Box denies that he aimed to draw attention to the potential dangers of powerlines, â€˜For me, it was just the amazement of taking something thatâ€™s invisible and making it visible,â€™ he says. â€˜When it worked, I thought: â€˜This is amazing.â€™â€™
