This studio project from Hungry Boys is a lovely idea. Sounds of Change is an online music label that offers exposure and revenue a stream to street performers. For launch three buskers were chosen and given the opportunity to record in a studio. The tracks were then shared with music streaming services like Spotify and iTunes.

Introducing the AlphaSphere

Today I had the privilege of meeting Adam Place, founder and inventor of the AlphaSphere, a new type of instrument. Rather than explain what the AlphaSphere is, just watch this video. It will blow your mind and make you want to demo, if not own one.

Friday finds Inspiration

Friday Finds

Here’s a random selection of things I’ve come across this week.

1. A player powered football pitch. The first of its kind, the pitch is based in Brazil and harnesses player’s energy whilst they play, lighting the pitch at night. The inaugural match was played this week.

 2. New York Standards Manual. A project on Kickstart created by Pentagrammers Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth that aims to reprint the Massimo Vignelli designed 1970. Back it.

3. The ‘slash’ career types. I’m definitely one of these.
