Play House

Sound installation by Alex Allmont uses old LEGO to create a machine to generate electronic music - video embedded below:

Play house is an automata that mechanically computes and performs hooky and hypnotic acid house. Like a generative musical loom, a single drive turns a sequence of LEGO gears, levers and latches that mutate riffs and rhythm patterns. These are played out on analogue drums and synthesisers from the halcyon days of 1980’s dance music while the machine gradually shifts the timbre and space of the sound. In the piece the process of creation is laid bare so one can indulge in picking apart the interactions driving the score, seeing sound as it changes in sculpture, exploring our expectations in music, or simply rocking out to some fruity acid.

The Chicest Bicyclists Of New York City

In New York City, many are understandably afraid of riding two-wheelers through streets jammed with four-wheelers. But those who do brave New York biking often become cultishly devoted to it. It frees them from subway and taxi fares, lets them sneak nimbly through traffic jams, is eco-friendly, and a killer workout. And, as we see in New York Bike Style, a new book by Brooklyn-based photographer Sam Polcer, it also looks really cool.
