Bamboo Saxophones, unique wind instruments made from bamboo, odd music Carefully electronically tuned, Ángel Sampedro del Rio's Bamboo saxophones consist of segments of bamboo successively larger in diameter. This progression has now been demonstrated by acoustical studies as the most harmonically effective. The joints are extremely solid and resistant over time. They have keys that cover toneholes outside the reach of the fingers. Since 1985 he has developed and built this instrument, with equal attention to acoustic design and aesthetics. Their interior is protected against changes of humidity, frequent in all wind instruments. They use conventional sax reeds, which can be acquired in any good musical store in the world. The Bamboo sax is not an imitation of brass saxes, it is an instrument in its own right. Visit Ángel's Bamboo Sax website and other bamboo instruments at:

Olson Kundig Wins the Blank Space Architecture Fairy Tale Contest With a Science-Fiction Story about Seattle For three years running, Blank Space, an online design platform based in New York and Rome, has hosted an open design contest. It’s not a typical call for entries. Fairy Tales asks architects to come up with new tales about myths and magic. It’s an architecture storytelling contest. This year’s winner is Olson Kundig, a Seattle-based architecture firm, which took the contest’s prompt in an unexpected direction. Welcome to the 5th Façade, the winning entry in the Fairy Tales 2016 contest, is part of an ongoing investigation at Olson Kundig. The story follows an unnamed first-person protagonist (it’s the architect himself) as he explores Seattle, a city he calls home but no longer entirely recognizes. A myocardial infarction began midway through Act 1 of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge at the Phoenix Playhouse. Our narrator discovers that many parts of the city are still recognizable, even some five or six generations removed from his first lifetime.
