Landfill Harmonic: creating music from recycled materials

"Landfill Harmonic tells the story of 'Los Reciclados' – 'The Recycled Orchestra' – a youth orchestra in Cateura, Paraguay, whose instruments are made out of the very trash that the town is built on.

WHEN FAVIO CHAVEZ AND LUIS SZARAN came to Cateura to start a music school, they realized that they had more students than instruments. Thanks to the resourcefulness of Cola, a Cateurian garbage picker, an orchestra came together, now featuring violins, cellos, and other instruments artfully put together from trash. Los Reciclados de Cateura, now an independent orchestra, recently performed in Brazil and Colombia under Chavez's direction."

(Nina Mashurova, 12 December 2012, Matador)

Trailer for "Landfill Harmonic". The project is being created by Alejandra Nash (Founder and Executive Producer), Juliana Penaranda–Loftus (Producer), Rodolfo Madero (Executive Producer), Jorge Maldonado (Co–producer), Graham
Townsley (Director) Jennifer Redfearn (Consulting producer), Tim Fabrizio and Neil Barrett (Directors of Photography) and Monica Barrios (Production Consultant).

Metadesigners Open Network: re-thinking the way designers are taught and practice

"Metadesign is an emerging conceptual framework within which designers will be able to work together in a more coherent and holistic way. Why? Because designing greener products and services will not be enough to remedy the environmental crisis that we face in the 21st century. We need more 'joined–up' ways to feed, clothe, shelter, assemble, communicate and live together. This will mean re–thinking the way that designers are taught, practice and organize themselves. It also entails re–designing design itself."

How Unilever, Coke and the Mini car got it so wrong

"Even the biggest businesses can make big mistakes – and when they do, the result can be a commercial calamity. Companies are constantly striving to improve their products and turn a profit. But changing an existing product can go horribly wrong, leaving customers in revolt and companies in crisis. Mishandled marketing and bungling public relations can make the slickest of businesses look incompetent. And the costs both financially and to reputation can be enormous. Persil, Coca–Cola and the British Motor Corporation have provided some of the most extreme examples as Evan Davis has been finding out for a new BBC Two series."

(BBC News, 8 May 2011)

Business Nightmares with Evan Davis – Doomed Designs will be on BBC Two at 20:00 BST on Monday 9 May 2011
