Some pretty things

How gorgeous are these quirky characters? Drawn/painted on paper and wood. These are from (Kiwi) Alaina Hind’s illustrative series ”Escape from Lonely Wood”. They are totally gorgeous. Etherial, fanciful and utterly captivating.

A slightly obsessed genius - Melodyne inventor Peter Neubäcker

Much as I dislike some of the resulting music (over-produced, over-perfected, commercial nonsense) this software is incredible!!

The chap that developed it, Peter Neubäcker, is a bit of a mad genius who is utterly obsessed with the mathematics of music.

This documentary is fascinating. Not only because it tells the journey his life took, that led to the invention of an entirely new perspective on sound, but also his creativity based on mathematics.

He studied one note for about a year. Modelling it into a 3D sculpture. 

I learned a lot by watching this. I highly recommed watching it. It's worth the time investment.
