Where to Go this Weekend: The Long Now in Berlin

One of the spring events we’ve been looking forward this year is “The Long Now” taking place at Berlin’s Kraftwerk from Saturday. “The Long Now” is a place for the enduring present, a space in which time itself can unfold, where the sense of time can take uncharted paths and get lost.

“Two engineering students from George Mason University in Virginia have stunned their professors by inventing a fire extinguisher that uses sound to put out flames. By blasting a fire with low frequencies between 30 and 60 hertz range, the extinguisher separates oxygen from fuel, explains inventor Viet Tran, who built the device with fellow student Seth Robertson.”

In an abstract sense, it recalls the more fractured and loose end of…

Amon Tobin’s ‘Dark Jovian’ EP to be Released on Record Store Day

From the sounds of this this video, it look’s like Amon Tobin’s latest release Dark Jovian is going to be good. Tobin hasn’t released anything in some time, well at least since 2011 , and we’ve been told Dark Jovian will tread into the sort of capacious territory normally reserved for classical music. In Tobin’s own words: “I made these tracks a year or two ago after binge-watching space exploration films. People have, from time to time, described things…
