Swedish TV Documentary: New Order 'The Story Of Blue Monday'

"I år är det 30 år sen New Order släppte Blue Monday. I Hitlåtens historia berättas det om hur New Order reste sig ur en personlig tragedi och med Blue Monday tog ett slutgiltigt kliv från rock till dansmusik. Låten är en modern klassiker men också en stilstudie i bandbråk, klantigheter och hur man kan slå försäljningsrekord och samtidigt gå med förlust

Många låtar vill kallas klassiker och banbrytande. Få förtjänar det på riktigt. Men New Orders Blue Monday klarar alla testen. Den lät som ljudet av framtiden när den släpptes. Och 30 år senare har den fortfarande inte passerat bäst-före-datum.

Blue Monday är också ljudet av ett band som hittar sig själva. Tre år tidigare spelade medlemmarna i New Order i Joy Division. Men när sångaren Ian Curtis tog livet av sig 1980 fick Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook och Stephen Morris starta om. Det skulle till ett publikupplopp för att få dom att hitta sin egen identitet.

Med Blue Monday byggde inte bara New Order helt nya instrument. De byggde en bro mellan rocken och dansmusiken. Men om New Order gjorde alla rätt i studion, gick desto mer fel utanför. Blue Monday har ett av musikhistoriens mest mytomspunna omslag. Bland annat för att det sägs ha varit så dyrt att tillverka att skivan gick med förlust.

Och sen många år tillbaka är New Order ett splittrat band efter ett infekterat bråk. Men i Hitlåtens historia pratar samtliga medlemmar om Blue Monday, en av musikvärldens piggaste 30-åringar.

Måndag 16 december 22.15 i SVT2 och SVT Play"

Timeline illustration of 1000 names of Sony Music artists since 1887

"Sony Music has unveiled a graphic installation documenting the company's 125 year musical history. Designed by Alex Fowkes, winner of Creative Review's 'One to Watch' in 2011, the Sony Music Timeline runs throughout the central atrium of Sony's open plan Derry Street offices.

The Installation features nearly 1000 names of artists signed to Sony Music and its affiliated labels from the foundation of Columbia Records in 1887 to the present day, including musical icons Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin, The Clash, Micheal Jackson and many many more.

Interspersed among the artist names are certain key developments in technology, musical formats and corporate history – from the invention of early recording cylinders to vinyl, cassette, CD, radio, MTV, the Sony Walkman, the iPod and the introduction of digital streaming services.

The work is organised by decade into 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall and covering almost 150 square meters of wall space. It uses CNC cut vinyl as the sole medium for the whole installation.

Emma Pike, VP Industry Relations, who commissioned the piece said, 'The brief was to bring the inspiration of our music into the heart of our building and make our office space live and breathe our incredible musical legacy. Alex's beautiful graphics and illustrations do exactly that.'

Sony's partnership with Fowkes is set to continue as the Sony Music Timeline will grow each year with the addition of new artist names signed by the major.'"

White Glove Tracking: open source project

"On May 4th, 2007, we asked internet users to help isolate Michael Jackson's white glove in all 10,060 frames of his nationally televised landmark performance of Billy Jean. 72 hours later 125,000 gloves had been located. wgt_data_v1.txt (listed below) is the culmination of data collected. It is released here for all to download and use as an input into any digital system. Just as the data was gathered collectively it is our hope that it will be visualized collectively. ...

White Glove Tracking is an open source project initiated by Evan Roth and Ben Engebreth with support from the Rhizome Commissions Program and the Eyebeam OpenLab."
