  • Bjork museum retrospective tests boundaries of music

    The Museum of Modern Art presents Björk, a retrospective dedicated to the work of the singer in New York on March 3, 2015In one of its most complex and ambitious exhibitions, the Museum of Modern Art has designed a career retrospective on Bjork that probes the question -- just how does one put music on a wall? The highlight of the two-floor retrospective, which opens to the public Sunday and runs until June 7, is a walk through the artist's eight adult solo albums, with each museum-goer given a headset that, triggered by sensors, narrates a fictional biography of Bjork set to highlights of the music. The visitor sees diaries of Bjork with her musings -- "I don't recognize myself / This is very interesting," she writes in one, which turned into the song "Headphones" -- as well as some of Bjork's most sensational outfits, including the swan dress she wore to the 2001 Oscars and the dress of tiny bells designed by Alexander McQueen. The lobbies feature music from four "instruments" including a Tesla coil that appeared on Bjork's 2011 album "Biophilia," an innovative work that was accompanied by a smartphone app -- the first to enter the collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

  • StarTropics for the NES had broken music, hear what it was supposed to sound like

    StarTropics for the NES had broken music, hear what it was supposed to sound likeThis is an older video, but it only recently came to my attention and it's definitely worth sharing. StarTropics is one of the few arguable classics from the NES era without any modern updates, but it's a game many of us fondly remember. This video points out the flaws in the game's music, and the story of why the music is broken is an interesting look at the technology behind the NES. The second song was hurt due to a bug, and of course there was no way to "patch" NES cartridges.
