Meow The Jewels: Killer Mike and El-P Remix Their Album Entirely With Cat Sounds

meow-the-jewelsRun The Jewels 2 artwork remixed for Meow The Jewels.

One of the best reviewed albums of last year, Killer Mike and El-P’s “Run The Jewels 2″, is being remixed entirely out of cat sounds. El-P joked last year that if someone shelled out $40,000 for a special version of their album he would remix it using cat sounds. The joke became reality when someone started a “Meow The Jewels” Kickstarter and El-P embraced it.

The joke project exploded, attracting producers including Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, Just Blaze, Zola Jesus, Baauer, Prince Paul, Dan The Automator, and the Alchemist.

This week El-P took to Instagram to share snippets of the remix album. Watch the video clips below!

Mesmerizing Video of the Day: 3D-Printed Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

Fibonacci-Zoetrope-Sculptures

This mesmerizing video features 3d-printed zoetrope sculptures designed by Stanford University teacher, John Edmark. The shapes are generated based on Fibonacci numbers, the same relationship you will find in pinecones, and sunflowers. Zoetropes traditionally rely on a strobe light for the human eye to perceive the animation; this video employs a fast shutter to achieve the same effect.
