It’s rare that I post non-English content. But if the concept or story is good enough, I do.
This is the brand new track “Helten” – which means “The Hero” – by Danish Stoev. The front person in Stoev is Gustav Foss, and behind the music you find him and songwriter Gisli Gislason.
When I heard the song the first time, I instantly liked the lyric. But when the song ended, I wasn’t done with the song… It was as having sex without getting an orgasm. The sex is still really good. But since you didn’t peak, you want more. And more. And then I listened to the song on repeat for more than an hour… still without peaking. But just enjoying… the ride… a lot.
Big thanks to Daniel for sending me this video.
It’s the official video for Mike Mago’s “The Show” on Ministry of Sound TV.
This is hilarious!
Big thanks to Julian for showing me this.
I’ve listened to this awesome track, Daybreaker, for the past week.
It’s the two Danish artists: Bon Homme – who’s daily name is Tomas Høffding – featuring Lydmor, which means Sound Mother in Danish. Behind Lydmor is Jenny Rossander.
Such a beautiful song! And cute videos with all the old family photos. These are actually the artist’s very own footage.
Directed/edited by André Chocron
Produced by Andrea Berentsen Ottmar
It’s my old friend from Bornholm (the island where I grew up) Kristian Finne Kristensen, who is behind Chorus Grant.
You should definitely check out his brand new album, Space, which is his second album. You can also follow him on Facebook. And oh. If you like his music – or just like to look at him – he’ll play at Ideal Bar in Copenhagen on May 15th with his band.
Psychedelic animation conceived and produced by Anthony Burrill, Paul Plowman and Malcolm Goldie.
Music by Daisy Daisy released by Sunday Best (2006).

Such an interesting talk.
In this soaring demonstration, deaf percussionist Evelyn Glennie illustrates how listening to music involves much more than simply letting sound waves hit your eardrums.
Japan’s latest and finest technologies were put into the creation of the “GAGADOLL”. It’s the world’s first life-size human-shaped listening station that closely resembles Lady Gaga. The bone conduction system enables one to listen to her songs and message.
The “GAGADOLL” was inspired by the concept of “ARTPOP” and this masterpiece made by Japan’s master craftsmen has been highly-praised by Lady Gaga herself.

Thank you for sending me this, Patrick!
Upright bass player being filmed by a camera with a high shutter speed. The strings are mesmerizing. Also, this clip is NOT in slow motion.
Woah! Well done! Check out these two Japanese musicians play Mozart’s “Turkish March” using 30 small bowls played via chopsticks and a pair of wooden spoons.
OMG. Listen to this! So fascinating. The world is indeed united…
Composer Jim Wilson recorded the sound of crickets. Then he slowed down the recording – revealing something amazing!
The crickets sound like they are singing the most angelic chorus in perfect harmony. Though it sounds like human voices, everything you hear in the recording is the crickets themselves.
The recording contains two tracks played at the same time:
1/ The first is the natural sound of crickets played at regular speed
2/ The second is the slowed down version of crickets’ voices
“I discovered that when I slowed down this recording to various levels, this simple familiar sound began to morph into something very mystic and complex…….. almost human,” Jim Wilson says.
Buy the recording of “God’s Chorus of Crickets” here.
My friend Henrik sent me this link saying, that this might be a hoax. Sigh. Check it out – and make up your own mind. Or don’t care at all, and keep listening to this amazing chorus Personally I don’t really mind, if it’s a hoax. Listening made me think about the universe, and how I believe, that there are so many lives on different frequencies, that we can’t – as humans – see or hear.
