Hans Wendt takes snapshots of objects from his studio: oil pastels, colour swatches, crumpled paper, and foregrounds them as subjects for large, trompe l’oeil watercolor paintings on paper. Virtuosic technique guides his formal investigation of these objects, moving in between photorealism and abstraction. In doing so he creates a dialogue about painting within his studio practice that acknowledges the programmatic accomplishments of conceptualism while celebrating the focus and skill demanded by this technical medium.

Fugazi: Instrument - A Documentary by Jem Cohen

This unpredictable and fluid musical film by Jem Cohen is less a documentary about the punk band Fugazi and more a visual interpretation of the group’s artistic efforts. Energetically charged live performances, studio sessions and atypical fan interviews combine for a one-of-a-kind, mixed format piece.

The film dives right in and effectively captures the spirit, if not the story, of the band from minute one.

Buy the DVD from Fugazi or stream it on Amazon Prime.

Space Music: Symphonies of the Planets

Possibly one of NASA’s most avant-garde projects ever, SYMPHONIES OF THE PLANETS is a five-CD set that is now out of print. Put simply, it consists of recordings made by Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 as they passed by the various planets and moons of our solar system. Although sound as we perceive it cannot travel in the vacuum of space, each planet and moon emits its own electromagnetic “signature” that can be picked up by the right instruments, and those emanations can be converted into sound and recorded onto compact discs for your listening enjoyment. 

Symphonies of the planets (CD 1)
Symphonies of the Planets (CD 2)  

I bought these CDs in middle school. So interesting to listen to!
