Just gave Kuedos Servant a listen. It’s an incredible fusion of footwork ( if you haven’t heard of footwork, go buy bangs and works vol 1 ) and Vangelis futurism synth play. Apart from the sound track, nothing has ever made me feel as though I’m bowling around the Bladerunner universe. Using vintage synths, Kuedo creates something reminiscent of a now past future… if that makes sense. Check out these tracks
A plane and a train.
A Trainplane ?
I’ve been looking at postwar design for the introduction of my dissertation (more on that in a later post) and stumbled across the Aerotrain. This amazing take on public transport was built in 1950’s America by General Motors (they now own many automobile companies making vehicles such as Mondeos and Corsas…). The cars each rode on two axles with an air suspension system, which was intended to give a smooth ride but apparently had the opposite effect :(. Postwar optimism was too damn cool.
This is the best video of the vehicle I could find on Youtube. It’s a music video to Aerotrain by Moon.
My name is Pete and I am currently living in Brighton studying Digital music and sound art. I’ve setup this blog not only to post the progress of my academic work but also to share my personal work, interests and any Internet lulz I may stumble across. Overtime it will hopefully serve as a visual drop box, enabling me to easily look back at certain findings and track my academic progression.
