This month I’ve made quite a few posts at MetaFilter, an American website where thousands of people gather to share links to cool websites and shout at each other. Here they are:
The Tone Generation is a radio series by Ian Helliwell ‘looking at different themes or composers in the era of analogue tape and early synthesizer technology’. The original globe-trotting series: Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, USA, Canada, Rest of World. Bonus programmes: Expo 58, The RCA Synthesizer. All links are to MP3 files, except the first one. Alternatively, you can slurp down the lot in one go by subscribing to the podcast feed.
Theatre of the New Ear. Two radio plays: one by Charlie Kaufman, the other by the Coen Brothers, recorded live and starring Steve Buscemi, John Goodman, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep.
The Coen Brothers’ Sawbones can be downloaded from the site linked above, or streamed along with Kaufman’s Hope Leaves the Theatre here. Via Subtraction.
A complete archive of French magazine L’Officiel de la Mode, from 1921 to 2008. It’s a treasure trove for fans of fashion, photography, advertising and design.
Dionisio GonzÃÂ¡lez makes photographs of imaginary favelas, Filip Dujardin makes photographs of imaginary buildings.
The Demarco Digital Archive holds 10,000 images and documents gathered by Richard Demarco, gallerist, Beuys collaborator, founder of the Traverse theatre and a key figure on the Scottish arts scene since the ’60s.
It seems almost incredible that Ursula Bogner’s musical talents should have remained undiscovered until now.
