The Johnny Cash Project is a unique communal work, a living portrait of the Man in Black. Through their interactive website, participants may digitally draw their own portrait of Johnny Cash over a selection of randomly generated frames which are then integrated into a collective whole. As people all over the world contribute, the project continues to evolve and grow, one frame at a time. The results so far are superb, there’s a real mood and edge to the combined monotone stills that connects with Cash’s track Ain’t No Grave which deals heavily with themes of mortality, resurrection, and everlasting life.

Rock Music is a retrospective of the legendary photographer’s work documenting the most outrageous moments, people and legends in music history.

Celebrated as ‘The Man Who Shot the 70s’, Mick Rock’s images define rock n’ roll. Rock launched his career in 1972 with his portrait of an unknown David Bowie and spent the next four decades capturing the most fascinating and exciting characters in rock music. Coinciding with the publication of Rock’s new book Exposed: the Faces of Rock n’ Roll (available to purchase in the gallery), Rock: Music includes many previously unseen and unpublished images, as well as rare and unexpected portraits from some of Mick’s classic shoots.

The Symphony of Science is a musical project headed by John Boswell designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.

The project owes its existence in large measure to the wonderful work of Carl Sagan, Ann Druyan, and Steve Soter, of Druyan-Sagan Associates, and their production of the classic PBS Series Cosmos, as well as all the other featured figures and visuals.

I first heard the track above on Jarvis Cockers Sunday Service which airs on BBC 6 Music, it’s called A Glorious Dawn, now available on iTunes.

Enjoy.

P.S the BBC in their infinite wisdom have decided to possibly axe 6 Music please sign up to Save 6 Music here!

A blatant excuse to use a picture of a hot girl from American Apparel, but the heck with it, AA’s “Viva Radio” now has a blog, with all kinds of musical news!

In the future, cars will fly, cloned dinosaurs will live happily confined to zoos, and live concerts will feature musical instruments that use touchscreens, lasers and solar power. Apparently.
