From shellacs and tapes to 12" vinyl, CDR and mp3, countless storage formats have been hailed as the future of recorded sound - some of them going on to acquire cult status for their unique sonic and tactile qualities. During its 2011 tenure in Madrid, the Red Bull Music Academy paid tribute to this evolution with an exhibition, various lectures and a special formats-themed party. In this mini-documentary, musical luminaries such as dubplate champion Hatcha, laptop wizard Clams Casino, and legendary disco edit master Greg Wilson, discuss how each format has become emblematic - and indeed, defined the sound of an era.
This video is one of the six artistic videos that enable people to experience the first ever Anish Kapoor exhibition in Turkey virtually, with background explanations by the sculptor himself and Norman Rosenthal.
In collaboration with British Council, and sponsored by Akbank, Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM) will exhibit Anish Kapoor’s works for the first time in Turkey between 10 September 2013 and 5 January 2014. The exhibition is curated by Norman Rosenthal and includes several pieces exhibited for the very first time. A series of discussions, workshops and educational activities will accompany the exhibition over the coming months.

Symphonie Cinétique – The Poetry of Motion is a kinetic composition that exploits the poetic synergy of music and mechanical motion in a space. It was conceived in an intense collaboration between Icelandic musician Ólafur Arnalds and Joachim Sauter/ART+COM; shown July 2013 at MADE, Berlin.
The exhibition project focuses mainly on the correlation and interaction of three elements: reflection, sound and movement. Symphonie Cinétique narratively interrelates the three elements, and brings out their inherent, almost mystic harmony. The result of this process is an artistic synthesis, a unique spatial experience.
MADE is a creative platform for artists from various fields, located in the heart of Berlin.
It can be a gallery, a workspace, a studio, a stage, a laboratory, or a performance space but most of all, it is a venue for interdisciplinary projects that invites artists to step out of their artistic routines. The goal of MADE is to enable a new kind of creative work by bringing together different artistic fields and offering a workspace and an inspiring biotope that allows new things to happen.
MADE was founded in early 2010 by German contemporary artist tadiROCK, her partner Nico Zeh and ABSOLUT Vodka, a visionary brand that fosters creative collaborations for over 30 years. made-blog.com
