No Handed Bike Moves

A professional display of 50 No Handed Bike Moves performed to “Golden Tree” by Martin Brooks.  Who knew the Official Federation of No Handed Bikes Skills had sanctioned over 50 moves?

Soundmachines

Three units, which are resembling standard record players, translate concentric visual patterns into control signals for further processing in any music software. The rotation of the discs, each holding three tracks, can be synced to a sequencer.

The Berlin-based studio The Product for “spatial and media-related design” created the Soundmachines for VW’s premiere of the 2012 Beetle at the IAA Motor Show.

Dr No Effects

Dutch illustrator specializing custom lettering, Eric van der Boom was recently commissioned by the vintage-sound guitar pedal manufacturer Dr. No Effects to create a new logo, packaging and product styling for all their pedals.  The visual styles for each of the pedals pair amazing well with the rich tone and sounds (demo the sounds on the Dr. No site).

Other projects by Eric van der Boom worth checking out - Ray Ban Rare Prints, Baetulona, and Def P & Beatbusters.

Hey You! What Song are you Listening to?

Ever wonder what everyone’s listening to as you walk around NYC?  Youtuber Tyler Cullen decided to ask random New Yorkers with headphones on what song they are listening to.

Rdio Playlist

For your listening enjoyment quickly put together an Rdio playlist with all the tracks mentioned in the video.  I was pleasantly surprised that their growing library had all 21 tracks.

Anatomy of a Mashup:Definitive Daft Punk visualized
Web technologist Cameron Adams recently created a mashup of 23 Daft Punk songs titled Definitive Daft Punk.  Like any good music mashup as you’re listening it becomes easy to get lost in the track and figure out where one track begins and ends.  To illustrate the layering and composition Cameron created this killer HTML5 and CSS3 visualization of the mashup.  Make sure you view it in a modern browser like Chrome or Safari.

Paper Record Player

Kelli Anderson just pulled off what might be the coolest wedding invite ever created with a paper record player included that plays a song written by the groom and bride.  With a bit of paper folding the invite booklet reveals a needle that plays a flexi disc record.  If I ever received an invite even close to this one I would feel obligated to buy them an amazing wedding present.

Get inspired looking at all of Kelli’s amazing work.
