…Floppy drives can survive?

Batch Totem - Trunkeret & IkoniskUsually the music is the message, but Batch Totem (Jonas Olesen) decided to be different, and has gone with the medium for his latest album.

By releasing the album, called Trunkeret & Ikonisk, as a 1.4MB file on a 3.5” floppy disk, “the idea is essentially to release an album on an almost obsolete medium that fits very well with the music on an aesthetical level”.

“Secondly, the scope of the project is to use heavy compression as a feature that shapes the music, instead of a limitation that reduces sound quality.”

I guess this at least helps prevent bootlegging.

…Alicia Silverstone got naked for vegies?

Alicia Silverstone

I’m not sure what shedding the clothes and showing the goods has to do with giving up the meat and eating the greens, but if it gets a surprisingly sexified Alicia Silverstone back in the spotlight, then I guess there’s no need for an explanation.

The Clueless star bore all for a new PETA PSA, and though I doubt the message, there’s no doubting the medium.

Does this make you want to go veg?

…Audio Bombing is the new graffiti?

Audio Bombing

Audio Bombing is a musical graffiti project that uses magnetic audio tape to transmit tags. By using alternative mediums, audio graffiti can be hidden in places where traditional graffiti cannot. An interesting concept, but I think it’s a bit more artsy then it is street (though I still think Boston would try to dismantle it).
