Billie Holiday » The Official Website of Billie Holiday Bob James feat. Harvey Mason solo on drums (live, 1985) Adrian Belew The pristine footage predates Stop Making Sense. Here’s some excellent — and essential — Friday viewing: a complete, 80-minute Talking Heads concert from 1980 that was shot on multiple cameras. As our friends at Dangerous Minds point out, this show is from the Remain in Light tour, which featured an “Afro-funk orchestra” and guitar god Adrian Belew. The show was held at the Capitol Theatre in Passiac, New Jersey, one of the few mid-sized concert halls equipped with a multi-camera video system at the time. Watch the video below via the Music Vault, a site that has remastered and uploaded thousands of old concert videos. The setlist follows.

Marcus Miller - Frankenstein (Live) Download 30 bewildering gigabytes of music cassettes from the experimental 1980s underground Download 30 bewildering gigabytes of music cassettes from the experimental 1980s underground Today, the concept of putting your music on cassette tapes seems quaint, but in 1985, cassettes were the primary medium of exchange for those creating original material in the experimental music underground. At the Internet Archive, you can access a trove of 30 gigabytes of underground music dating from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s that originally had been committed to cassette and distributed in that form. According to the information provided with the archive, the genres include “tape experimentation, industrial, avant-garde, indy, rock, diy, subvertainment and auto-hypnotic materials.” However, a good portion of the archive “defies category, and has therefore not been given one.” If you want to download the entire archive, you can do so here, although it comes with a warning that this is a “very inefficient way to browse this collection.”

Nanoscribe Will Sell a Micro 3-D Printer That Creates Tiny Structures in Seconds Nanoscribe, a spin-off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, has developed a tabletop 3-D microprinter that can create complicated microstructures 100 times faster than is possible today. “If something took one hour to make, it now takes less than one minute,” says Michael Thiel, chief scientific officer at Nanoscribe. While 3-D printing of toys, iPhone covers, and jewelry continues to grab headlines (see “The Difference Between Makers and Manufacturers”), much of 3-D printing’s impact could be at a much smaller scale. Micrometer-scale printing has shown promise for making medical and electronic devices. Thiel says it should be possible to speed up his company’s microprinting technique even more in the future. Printing microstructures with features a few hundred nanometers in size could be useful for making heart stents, microneedles for painless shots, gecko adhesives, parts for microfluidics chips, and scaffolds for growing cells and tissue.

The Printer That Can Print A 2,500 Square Foot House In 20 Hours. We have seen huge advancements in 3D printing. We’ve even seen oversized wrenches printed that measure 1.2 meters in length. Now, we can print an entire 2,500 sqft house in 20 hours. In the TED Talk video below, Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC), demonstrates automated construction, using 3D printers to build an entire house in 20 hours. In manufacturing we use a process called CAD/CAM (computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing). 3D models are designed on a computer and then manufactured using CNC Machines or 3D printers. In this video, we see a prototype of a machine called ‘Contour Crafting’ Michael Cooney Michael Cooney, the founder of EngNet, worked as a project engineer for many years sourcing equipment.

The focus of the exhibit is on the variety of ways artists explore the cup, in functional, sculptural, traditional and non-traditional forms. Thank you! Pam Eisenmann- Co-CuratorJoan Ulrich- Co-CuratorDale Marhanka-Ceramics Director Cups are probably one of the most unassuming, yet challenging forms to make. Potters seem to be quite particular about what they like about cups and why. I was so inspired to see such a diverse range of cup forms, surfaces, decoration and building processes. Each of us will have different visceral reactions to different pots based on our own personal histories.
