Architecture is the aesthetic design of spaces, buildings, structures,…the arrangement of volumes within space.
Architecture opts to combine aesthetics with practicality …
Art with robust construction…
Aesthetics is a matter of taste and mode of expression, robustness a matter of technical knowledge and delivery.
Aural architecture is all about a wisely selected bunch of background sounds to the life of the listener.
Throw your arms around imagination and quality!
Late Sunday night of 15th May 2016
There are certain weekends that leave no time for this glorious section of your amusement and musical education. I may be exagerating (of course) but this weekend, I’ll feed your ears with a selection of tropical proportions and mood. I’ve been driving endlessly for the last couple of days and the landscapes are still shifting past my eyes.
- Barry Adamson
Cinematic noir and sensually enigmatic, taken off Moss Side Story, this magnificent imaginary murder movie soundtrack by Barry Adamson -the former Bad Seeds and The Birthday Party member- is equally stuff of legends. Let’s get it on!
- Shock Machine
This is the project of James Righton, previously known from chaotic UK pop band Klaxons (also husband of Keira Knightley is the other vital trivia). The director for Open Up The Sky is Saam Farahmand and Shock Machine’s debut EP is arriving soon with cabin friendly sounds.
- Andrew Weatherall
Legendary producer of Primal Scream‘s Screamadelica that has accompanied millions of dance worshiping days and nights, the whole rave scene chill filtered through light and water, the magical nineties and so on. The Sabres Of Paradise and Two Lone Swordsmen, solo records, The Asphodels, and time has rolled full circle into 2016, when Andrew Weatherall releases Convenanza. Blissful religious experience listening to whatever his magic fingers lay out in the studio.
- Let’s Eat Grandma
Rosa and Jenny from Norwich are taking us by the hand into a sweet hypnotic raft to the centre of the ocean.
- Chilly Gonzales
He shook our world in with his first album (Uber Alles) in 2000. The pianist for Drake, Daft Punk and Feist, best known for his timeless Solo Piano albums, has been repeatedly called “a self-proclaimed musical genius”. Today, he issues an official “correction” in the form of the video for “(NOT A) MUSICAL GENIUS”. This will hopefully prove once and for all that Chilly Gonzales is but a fantasy of sensitive Montrealer Jason Beck. What a sublime and beautiful fantasy though.
Here’s one he made with Boys Noize…
Leaving you tonight with his awesome live show in Berlin with Boys Noize. Ci vediamo!
