Listen to Brian Eno' s Box Set 'Music For Installations'


Listen to Brian Eno's release of the six-CD set "Music For Installations" that contains many rare and previously unreleased tracks. You find the complete 24 tracks YouTube playlist here.


From Brian Eno's official site:


These highly-acclaimed works have been exhibited all over the globe - from the Venice Biennale and the Marble Palace in St. Petersburg to Beijing’s Ritan Park and the sails of the Sydney Opera House.


'Music For Installations' is a collection of new, rare and previously unreleased tracks, all of which will be available on vinyl for the first time. All of the material was recorded by Eno for use in his installations covering the period from 1986 until the present (and beyond). Over this time he has emerged as the leading exponent of generative music worldwide and is recognised as one of the foremost audio-visual installation artists of his time.


For a lenghty review of "Music for Installations", head over to Pitchfork that rated this album eight out of ten.

'The View from Touffou' (1981): A Rare Video Presentation of Marketing Techniques by Advertising Giant David Ogily

In this rare 40 minutes long video from 1981, advertising giant David Ogilvy shares some useful marketing techniques and strategies, as well as anecdotes from his private and professional life.


The video is entitled "The View from Touffou" since it was being filmed at Ogilvy's home, a French castle Touffou he bought in 1966, and was aimed toward Ogilvy's staff and clients.


The below version is one of the better ones I found in regards to quality, despite it being hardcoded with a Czech subtitle.

Write It Like Film Director Ingmar Bergman


Film director Ingmar Bergman was a frequent writer of notes. To celebrate Ingmar Bergman's 100th anniversary, Bergman's characteristic handwriting has been made into a web font.


For over 60 years, Ingmar Bergman wrote everything – from entire manuscripts to passing thoughts – by hand in his yellow notebooks. To commemorate the centenary of his birth, we have created a font based upon his handwriting. Add a touch of drama to your everyday life by having Bergman write your grocery list, a greeting to grandmother or a shout out in social media. […]


Try it out for yourself here, but be aware that what you'll scribble end up for all to see at the left side.
