On Listening

@ VOL 8 ON JUL 31, 2015

What does it mean to listen -- physically, emotionally, spiritually? How does sound enrich our lives or distract us from it?

Multi-percussionist, composer and educator River Guerguerian took the audience at PechaKucha Night Asheville: "The Art of Science" on a sonic journey toward greater awareness of the significance of sound in our lives and of the power of listening.

The Pictures in the Hall

@ VOL 3 ON OCT 26, 2011

"He was introducing the Ziggy Stardust persona. It was obvious to everybody that it was going to be absolutely massive. I remember being aware that I was witnessing something special, the emergence of a star."

In The Pictures in the Hallway, from PechaKucha Night Derby Vol. 3, Doug Smith shares an absolutely amazing PechaKucha about photos taken in London 40 years ago, of rock legends of a phenomenal era of music. Photos of Bowie, Eno, Dury, and others now gracing his hallway in Derby, an ultimately cool testament of Smith's love for music. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on November 2nd, 2013 and again on January 14th, 2015 following the passing of David Bowie.

Inspirational Coincidences

@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Photos by A Guy Called Gerald

The nomadic life of a musician is one of countless stories. The legendary English musician/DJ/producer presenting in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Berlin) is none other than A Guy Called Gerald. He discusses 20 photographs that are particularly inspiring or reminiscent for him; these include hypnoitising images of fire, shots of sunrises and sunsets from all over the world, analogue sound machines, times of strife and times of dreams, as well as an old photo from the 1960s of his mother. Hear him tell a new story with each photo introduced -- in a stream of consciousness fashion.

Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground

“Japan is not just about video games, anime, sushi..but it is incredibly diverse, progressive and colourful.” In "Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol.139, Matt Ketchum speaks about his enthusiasm towards Japan's extreme underground life as a musician. Japan's well known for its robots, anime, sushi, and ninja, but that's nowhere near the whole of Japan's cultural identity. Unseen, unheard, and damn near unsearchable but nevertheless teeming with energy, there is a completely separate dimension of Japan's creative communities: the extreme music underground.
