David Byrne and Brian Eno interview with Hillman Curtis

David Byrne and Brian Eno are both amazing artists. I've loved both of their work. I was also inspired by Hillman Curtis when I read his book "MTIV: Process, Inspiration and Practice for the New Media.
Designer".

Just heard that Hillman Curtis passed away on April 18, 2012.  Very sad to hear.

Last week I got to experiment with my very first 3d printing.  Totally excited by the topic and I think it's going to be huge in the coming years.

Raymond Scott

Image
I've known about Raymond Scott for a number of years. But I've never really deeply researched his music and history. Truly one of the originators of electronic music.

Here are a few videos showcasing his weirder sounds.



This above track from Scott definitely makes me think of the sounds of AFX on the Analord series.




Some work he did with Jim Henson
