Cover Song Archive

cover song archive booooooom collaborative music project

“A collection of songs you know, by people you don’t.” Our latest project officially launches today! Presenting the Cover Song Archive.

This Booooooom project will be an on-going collection of videos of people covering popular songs. We are steering clear of extremely popular bands covering other popular bands as we want to shed light on smaller indie bands, unknown singers, and closet musicians!

Take a look at the site to see the kind of thing we’re after. Record your own cover or scour Youtube for creative performances that fit the bill!

Submit them HERE.

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
