Sense8 opening

21 Nov

The Wachowski sisters (formerly known as the Wachowski brothers) recently stunned viewers with their dazzling sci-fi series Sense8. The series is indeed very recommended if you are into sci-fi and superpowers and the manichean drama, but one of the parts I liked best about is actually the opening. I always find that there is something extremely psychedelic about looking at the earth from a global perspective looking at people across the entire universe and getting a perspective on life in its manifold forms as it gushes around the planet, and this is exactly what the Sense8 opening does.

Desert City – Space is Green

Space Bass created and played by Constance Demby, 1980’s

18 Nov

I came across this video on the Mesmerizing Instruments and Sound Facebook Page. I love the eerie psychedelic tones almost as much as I love watch her play the ting in that fabulous outfit. That belt! Here’s the text from the Mesmerizing…Page:

“An ominous “80ties” Constance Demby playing the “Space Bass” , a instrument of her own design.

The Sonic Steel Space Bass is a 10 ft sheet of mirror finish stainless steel with 5 octaves of steel and brass rods. The rods can be bowed, struck percussively, and the metal sheet can be rubbed to create various effects. Several tones can be created by bowing a single rod, resulting in a multi-tiered overtone series. A sound scientist determined that the sound waves on the lowest notes of the instrument are approximately thirty feet long.
Constance Demby is a performing and recording artist, vocalist, experimental musical instrument inventor, painter, sculptor, and multi-media producer. Her work is categorized in the ambient/new age genre”
