Booooooom asks Monstrum

Future of the City

“How can we provide opportunities for kids to make real-life discoveries on their own instead of Googling and Youtubing everything?”

This is the question I posed recently to @smarturbanstage, an online project in which people question the quality of life in their own cities around the world. They found a really cool answer to my question in the form of Monstrum, playground builders from Copenhagen. You can read the article here.

Fresh Letter Project

Fresh Letter Project
The new Booooooom project is here!

I wanted to launch a fun project before I left Hawaii so I spent the last couple days building a giant cork board at Fresh Café (located in the front of Loft In Space, which hosts Pow Wow).

The idea is to have people from all over the world create letters, photograph them, and physically mail the photos to the café! I shot a few sets of letters on the beach with some friends to kick it off.

Hopefully over time there will be a giant collection of these letters that people at Fresh Café can use to spell fun messages!

#israel #cats

So I’ve been in Israel this past week with designboom, Dezeen, DeTnk, and We Heart and it has been incredible. I will be posting about the trip in detail, but for now here are some cats. Oh, and you can follow @VibeIsrael to keep tabs on what we’re doing out here.

Synesthesia

The gang at Yours Truly are starting a project called Synesthesia and I have jumped on board to help produce future installments of the series. So what is it? I’ll let Momo Ishiguro from Yours Truly explain it!

synesthesia

Even if you’re not synesthetic (a neurological condition that produces the rare ability to experience separate senses simultaneously), there are times when colors seep through songs and music wafts out of otherwise quiet objects. A certain chord has a blue-gray tint; a certain sculpture sounds like waves crashing on the shore.

In this new series, Yours Truly asks some of the most visual people around to fill us in on the links between sound and vision by paying homage to a sonic artist who has helped them hear colors and sing shapes.

Yours Truly

I’m really excited to announce that Booooooom and Yours Truly are joining forces on a project! I’ve been following their work for awhile now and I’m beaming just thinking about how cool this is gonna be!

yours truly booooooom

If you’ve never seen their site before you’re in for a very unproductive morning! They’ve spent the past couple years convincing a whole slew of musicians to come and perform in their studio space. Little Dragon, Chromeo, The Morning Benders, Toro Y Moi, Local Natives, Mayer Hawthorne, the list of artists they’ve worked with is ridiculous.

I’ll tell you more about our project tomorrow but in the mean time give these guys a warm welcome, and check out a couple videos below!

Nada Alic

Hey everyone, I want to introduce you to my friend Nada!

nada alic music blogger writer

We connected last year when she was working with Invisible Children and I got hooked on her music blog Friends With Both Arms. She’s introduced me to so much music I thought it would be fun to have her post some of her discoveries over here (every now and then).

Please give her a warm welcome!
