How I Photograph the Milky Way from Light-Polluted Skies of Singapore. Just came back from my Mount Bromo trip and I finally found time to complete this tutorial, after I wrote my first article for SLR Lounge last week, before I have to fly again soon.

How I Photograph the Milky Way from Light-Polluted Skies of Singapore

I will update this tutorial along the way but meanwhile, I hope this will get you started. A recent study suggests that Singapore was ranked as second safest out of 99 countries and this may also imply that the heavy light pollution here could have helped maintain the city’s low crime rate. So, light pollution will continue to be an ever-growing problem in major cities that threaten human sleep patterns, animal migrations, natural habitats, heritage of appreciation for our night sky and more. Of course, I am not implying that we should compromise on safety in order for us to admire heavens, but there are smarter ways to light up a city by pointing down the street lights and using very focused LEDs.

Meet the Patron of American Modern Art: The CIA

The paintings shown in the 1958 exhibition “The New American Painting” are full of muddles of color and shapes ranging from representative to unrecognizable. The work of American Abstract Expressionists including Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Willem de Kooning, the paintings inspired mockery and confusion from the public matched in intensity only by the appreciation they elicited from admirers. President Truman commented, “If that’s art, then I’m a Hottentot.” Nevertheless, the Museum of Modern Art, which organized the exhibition and its tour through European capitals, noted that the artists’ style “is now dominant throughout the United States.” Blog.soulwire.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/tonfall-sequencer.swf.

Sound of Threads

Called Sounds of Threads, the installation comprises strands of wool stretched between four wooden stands, with beams of white light projected across them in time to a piece of music. “I was interested in questions of how sight can enhance hearing, or also disturb our balance in perceiving a multimedia-based bodily experience.” He composed an original piece of music to use in the installation, which he exhibited earlier this year in Reykjavik.

Note: ties are allowed/encouraged. The podcaster: Originally conceived as a two-hour block of NPR stories based around a not-necessarily-science-related theme, the first episodes of Radiolab airied on WNYC in 2002. At first, Jad Abumrad was the show’s solo commentator, but Robert Krulwich joined the fold semi-officially in 2003 after the two met during an interview. By 2004, Krulwich was on for good and Radiolab became an hour-long science-themed show, earning outspoken boosters like This American Life’s Ira Glass with its combination of excellent storytelling and sound-collage design.

Consacrés sinon sanctuarisés à son intention. Ce pas de côté commence dès le départ, ou l’arrivée. Mais qui regarde vraiment les gares et les aéroports, ce qui s’appelle « regarder », poser son regard sur une façade ou des voûtes sans hâte de le reprendre, prendre le temps de détailler sans chercher à identifier dans ces lieux destinés en principe à accueillir le fugace absolu, ceux qui ne font que passer, le peuple international des transhumants ?

Katie Paterson, Streetlight Storm

‘Fossil Necklace is a string of worlds, with each bead modestly representing a major event in the evolution of life through a vast expanse of geological time. From the mono-cellular origins of life on earth to the shifting of the continents, the extinction of the Cretaceous period triggered by a falling meteorite, to the first flowering of flowers, it charts the development of our species and affirms our intimate connection to the evolution of those alongside us. Each fossil has been individually selected from all corners of the globe, and then carved into spherical beads in a secondary process of excavation.’ Guy Haywood, Kettle’s Yard.

In November of 1970, a month after signing a five-year publishing deal with Chrys­alis Music, 24-year-old David Bowie wrote the following letter to Bob Grace, the man who signed him, and briefly filled him in on his life so far. Transcript follows. (Source: Any Day Now; Image: David Bowie in 1970, via.) How To Sing: Lilli Lehmann's Illustrated Guide, 1902. By Maria Popova “It is the artist’s task, through offering his best and most carefully prepared achievements, to educate the public, to ennoble it.”

Just like learning to listen to music is an acquired skill, learning to make music may have as much to do with discipline and practice as it does with inborn “talent,” if not more. In How To Sing (public library; public domain), originally published in 1902, German opera superstar Lilli Lehmann sets out “to discuss simply, intelligibly, yet from a scientific point of view, the sensations known to us in singing” by exploring “the expressions ‘singing open,’ ‘covered,’ ‘dark,’ ‘nasal,’ ‘in the head,’ or ‘in the neck,’ ‘forward’ or ‘back.’” But more than a mere technical guide to vocal skill, Lehmann’s treatise is really a guide to thinking musically and a dimensional meditation on the general art of learning. » What Makes a Sci-Fi Film Great?

From the scraps of buildings that used to hold the people of New York, Rick Kelly makes music. From his shop, Carmine Street Guitars, Kelly has made a name for himself, crafting handmade guitars from the ruins of New York landmarks. And he’s attracted many famous musicians. For Lou Reed, he crafted a custom guitar from the Chelsea Hotel. For Bob Dylan, the Chumley’s speakeasy. Sometimes he picks the scraps himself, other times, his customers bring them to him.
