Ball Conductor

19 spheres come to life, as you become a supernatural conductor. Each ball becomes an orchestral instrument that increases in volume as it physically rises. You can create your own soundscape whilst the balls levitate and dance to the music.

This is currently controlled via the touch screen of an iPhone, however, it may soon be naturally controlled with your movement. (Source)

Cultfever

A few tracks, recommended by B, from a Brooklyn-based band on the verge of blowing up.
 

Through a mass of synths, guitars and gorgeous voices, Cultfever adorns sturdy pop songs with irresistible mystery. Emanating from a small apartment studio in Brooklyn, New York, the sound Cultfever makes is at once hypnotic, romantic and familiar. Their eponymous debut, slated for a 1 November 2011 release, delivers 9 vignettes where they experiment with electronics and soaring choruses.

Old Floppy Drives, New Tricks

YouTube Preview Image

If this doesn’t brighten your Monday, I’m not sure what will. Maybe that says more about me.

The sound comes from a magnetic head moved by stepper motor. To make a specific sound, head must be moved with appropriate frequency…

To move the head you need to activate the drive by pulling the DRVSB0 or 1 (depends on the cable you have and the connector - notice the crossover on the FDD ribbon cable) pin low and then falling edge on STEP pin makes the head move one step in direction dependent on DIR pin state.

An ATMega microcontroller is generating those frequencies and it makes the drives play music. #source

Bebe, Le Tigre, Devin the Dude, Busta Rhymes ft. ODB, Kate Bush (talk about dynamic tension…)

Thoughts:

1. Kinda in love with Bebe.
2. Le Tigre is awesome.
3. Devin is awesome.
4. Busta Rhymes and ODB are def. brothers from another mother. Silliest video ever.
5. You can’t rob a store to Kate Bush, but nothing beats this for reading Bronte (any of ’em). This video has the same effect on me as the Busta one.
