Electronic music duo Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland collaborated with singer Karin Dreijer Andersson to create this highly original composition. A lot is happening in this song. It feels quite organic. Bringing the hit home is Karin’s unique way of singing.
As the world becomes increasingly connected, so are all the devices that we’re using. Vehicles, of course, are no exception. But while a hacked phone or refrigerator won’t be immediately life-threatening, a compromised vehicle can endanger the lives of many.
Get ready to be snapped away into a universe built by a myriad sounds. There are more things happening here than on some entire albums. And yet… a powerful sense of purpose permeates the melody.
There are very few songs that score this highly on the “mind-blowing” scale. Close your eyes and let your mind reach ecstasy through rhythm. And remember: bad sound ruins good music.
Rejoice, for scientists have accidentally found a way to prolong battery life with up to 400%.
Now rejoice less, because in the past decade we’ve learned about at least twenty such discoveries. Not a single one made it to the market yet. I don’t know if this is some sort of commercial strategy or if these discoveries are just very difficult to implement for mass production and thus, unfeasible.
After several failed attempts, SpaceX made history when it managed to successfully land its reusable Falcon 9 rocket booster on a (robotic) ship stationed off the Florida coast.
The road towards efficient space exploration and development is, however, a long one. Let’s think bigger. Let’s think about large space stations, asteroid mining, colonies on the Moon and Mars. Many of these projects will need an initial investment originating from Earth, probably consisting of pre-manufactured goods. As a species, we have to think long-term.
A deep, bouncing bass permeates the song, almost as if to assure the listener that these guys aren’t messing around here. Completing the tune is a mystical-sounding chant, perfectly blending in with the flowing, pulsating melody.
In the past few weeks the news has been abuzz with several stories coming from zoos around the world. These articles tend to attract quite a few readers it seems, mostly because people seem to think it’s kinda cute when animals prove us they’re smart, or that they can take initiative in a given situation.
Addictive through its tranquility, MIKTEK’s art shines despite its unassuming, subdued tonalities. Yet, even as the solemn bass leaves no doubts about it, the listener will feel a great force in play here. This is the second song from MIKTEK’s “Elsewhere” album that I’m featuring here, and it may not be the last.
Together with its new CEO, the software giant is embracing the inevitable: transforming its users into a data product.
What worries me the most is the fact that Microsoft is moving towards transforming Windows into a closed ecosystem, emulating the model established by Apple and, later, Google.
With the upcoming Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft is taking its first steps into placing itself as a leech between developers and customers, charging not only for the operating system but also taking a profit share from producers.
If somebody would ask me to explain what life is without using words, I’d play this song for them. It starts with her voice, a voice that surrenders to the mysteries of ineffable depths. Then comes the music. They orbit each other in a cathedral of majestic sound. The melody builds, flows, recedes and then comes back for the final ecstasy.
