Thom Yorke’s 18-Day Long Soundtrack


Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood launched The Panic Office last week in Sydney, Australia. The retrospective exhibit highlights thousands of pieces, spanning over 25 years of work, and includes iconic album covers for OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, and The King of Limbs. The exhibition also features original, unseen work and an 18-day-long soundtrack by Thom Yorke, entitled Subterranea.

Yorke’s experimental score is made up of ambient recordings that play through speakers in the floor, walls, and ceiling. Not one minute of the soundtrack is repeated, and with no plans for the tracks’ release, it can only be heard at the exhibit, which runs from May 21 and June 6. For those of you who can’t make it to Carriageworks, you can see the space and hear Yorke’s track in a video Donwood shared via Dropbox. More images of Donwood’s work and shots from the show below.

Booooooom x Tangible Interaction: Submissions to our Pencil Project for IAM Festival in Barcelona

Last month we launched a project to build a sculpture in Barcelona, at the IAM Festival, using pencils mailed in from all over the world. We collaborated with Vancouver-based studio Tangible Interaction to 3D-print special connectors that would allow us to connect the pencils together in a variety of ways. It was a pretty ambitious project considering we only had a few weeks to collect pencils and it would only work if we had lots.

You guys totally came through! All in all we had well over 1,000 pencils from all over the place: North and South America, Asia, Europe, Australia, India, and Sri Lanka! Thank you all for making our project in Barcelona a success! If you sent us a pencil you can now say that you have exhibited at the Design Museum of Barcelona, that’s pretty cool!

Here is a quick time lapse of people at the event building the sculpture with your pencils and a gallery of all the people who emailed in a photo of themselves. These photos represent a small fraction of all the people who took part in the project but I think it still beautifully represents the way the Internet can used to create an artwork using bits and pieces from all different countries.
