Garnering Trust with Julian Assange

28 Feb

“There’s a network effect for anything to do with trust. Once something starts going around and being considered trustworthy in a particular arena, and you meet someone and they say ‘I heard this is trustworthy,’ then all of a sudden it reconfirms your suspicion that the thing is trustworthy. So that’s why brand is so important, just as it is with anything you have to trust.”

Julian Assange,  founder of WikiLeaks

Edison of Kid Without Radio

15 Feb

“Simply put we don’t care about the radio, we make music for the future of music.” –Kid Without Radio

Edison is a musician deeply focused on the future of sound artistry and is an integral part of the record label Kid Without Radio. Kid Without Radio believes, “in creating new music, pushing the envelope of experimentation with electronics…in the power of evolving music and the influence that has on the future.”  The video, directed by Mike Landry and Adam Patch, shows Edison doing what he does best, crating music by laying down beats with a monome. The video was shot in all 1080 using four cameras and two projectors over only one take. The result is amazing. The song in the video, Artemis vs. The City, is off Edison‘s new album People Are Bad Animals. Enjoy!

If you are curious about how Edison creates his music, check out the following video from DJ Techtools, where Edison talks about his process using Ableton and his monome.

Uncontacted Tribes, simply put, is a great site. The information contained in the parameters of this website has my mind being stretched in all directions. It is hard to imagine there are still tribes of people living so primitively and unaware of the progressive world. The website has plenty of photos, film footage, and information to help dispel any myths about these tribes one might hold. Check it out, its definitley worth ten minutes of your time. www.uncontactedtribes.org
