Now That’s What I Call MIDI

December 22nd, 2010

Now That’s What I Call MIDI is a project by Internet Archaeology. They want to make a full length EP containing 16 of your favorite Jamz from yesteryear (Nirvana, Ace of Base, Eminem, Jay-Z …) converted from MIDI format onto the plush sound of vinyl. It will be limited to 500 copies only.
You can help this project through Kickstarter. If you pledge $25 or more you’ll receive a copy! They need $2.500 by Sunday January 9th 2011, otherwise no ones pays or receives any money (no risk for you or them). They’re almost half way there, so pitch in. It’s MIDI on vinyl!

450 Page Google Docs Presentation

December 16th, 2010

This is the most awesome 450 page presentation you’ve ever seen. It took 3 animators 3 days to make this 450 frames animation in Google Docs. The cool thing about it? They were all in different location but could still edit the same document online at the same time. Plus, it super easy to share it afterwards. So go to http://goo.gl/6MJwH, let it load (it’s quite heavy) and then click through it. Or just watch the video below with some extra making of footage.
(btw, I can only see 413 pages …)

The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation

October 29th, 2010

At the end of April of this year, Manuel Bürger held a one week workshop “The Beauty of Lacks and Limitation” at the New Media department of the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany. The course was about: Design Awareness / Composing in Boundaries / Template Distending /  Breaking inflexible Patterns in Design / Carrying Ideas into Effect. He asked the students to learn to know their software and then to try to bring the software to its knees. The second step was to carry their ideas into effect.
You should definitely check out the website of the workshop. There’re a lot of great examples, research and inspiration, but also the results made by the students. These are my 2 favorites.

Julian Beekmann used the calc-function of Apple Pages to draw mountains with beautiful stone fillings.
