Detritus 391

▶ So nice to see Max Richters studio


▶ Great interview HERE on the 20th anniversary of Raster Noton, with Frank Bretschneider, Olaf Bender and Carsten Nicolai – really appreciate their ideas about development of the label, retaining control & refusing aspirations of infinite growth/mass populism that plague so much of the music industry: “We’ve discussed endlessly the idea of growing. We decided at some point as well, Let’s not grow. Let’s keep this way, it’s healthy.”

(thats a 360 video btw – Safari wouldn’t play it as 360 but Chrome did)


▶ 85 percent of Facebook video is watched without sound

    I imagine you know this already (perhaps you’ve posted it!), but in relation to the Scrap Heap Orchestra, It’s worth mentioning the Landfill Harmonic
    “Landfill harmonic follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a paraguayan musical youth group of kids that live next to one of South America’s largest landfills. This unlikely orchestra plays music from instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. With the guidance of their music director, they must navigate this new world of arenas and sold out concerts. However, when a natural disaster devastates their community, the orchestra provides a source of hope for the town. The film is a testament to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.”
    Like the movie WASTELAND about Vic Muniz, this project really brings art into contact with the poorest of the poor and in doing so raises some really interesting questions about who has access.
