When NASA launched Voyager I and II in 1977 they included a special recording created by a committee of artists and scientists chaired by astronomer Carl Sagan. The Voyager Golden Record was their attempt at encapsulating Earth and its inhabitants through sounds of music and nature, human (and whale) languages, and over 100 encoded images.
While originally intended for any extraterrestrials the spacecrafts might come across, special vinyl copies of the original phonograph record are being made available for the first time through Kickstarter! See more images and information below.
Massive shout out to Luigi Allemano who created the sound design and original music for the entire series. Luigi is an animator himself, who’s worked on more than 50 NFB films, including Doyon’s Oscar-nominated film Dimanche. It was an honour to work with all of these talented people!
Thanks to our friends at the NFB for supporting this project, and everyone at Red Bull who worked on this. We couldn’t be more proud or excited to be part of Red Bull Music Academy’s first substantive foray into the world of animation! Watch the trailer below and stay tuned for the full episodes!
Our friends at #TheCreatorClass offer a glimpse into Bedouin Soundclash’s trip to New Orleans. Working closely with other musicians at the historic Preservation Hall, the Toronto-based band is accompanied by director and cinematographer Ben Graeme, who’s been chronicling their return from hiatus as they search for new sounds and collective inspiration. Check out the video and more images below!
Tim Westwood just blessed the Internet with an absolute gem from his collection! A little piece of history in the form of a freestyle session featuring ODB, Method Man, U-God, Masta Killa, and RZA going off for just under an hour. Listen to the entire thing below!
If you’re not that familiar with what’s happening right now in the Canadian music scene (even if you are) you should definitely listen to this Canadian mix by Kutcorners for Artgang Montreal. He’s my favourite dj in Vancouver and a criminally underrated producer; big things on the horizon for him for sure. Check out the mix below – good vibes if you’re working in your studio today!
Big weekend for Radiohead fans! They officially released their new album, “A Moon Shaped Pool” (get it here) after teasing us with their Paul Thomas Anderson-directed video for “Daydreaming” (watch on Booooooom TV). Excuse me while I go listen to the album 99 million times in a row.
