PKN Jam in Barcelona

When two presenters dropped out at the last minute from last Friday's Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 4 in Barcelona, the PKN Jam was born. Organizer Petz Scholtus came up with the idea of quickly putting together 20 random images together, and then invited 20 volunteers onstage to improvise. Sounds like we have the makings of a great new PKN activity! The included photos of the event are courtesy of presenter Marcus Willcocks. We'll have a report on PKN Barcelona Vol. 4 later this week.

Sound Inspiration for Art, What We Eat, and Photos from San Sebastian

Presentations In Paula Alasad Asbell's presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 2), "sound mind" is not a reference to a psychological state, but refers instead to the source of the inspiration for her art: her favorite music and musicians. Tomas Popp uses his presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) to take a closer look at what we eat, where it comes from, and how it affects us all. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, starting with PKN Portsmouth Vol. 12's "Earth" poster you see above, which continues this year's themed series (the previous two were for "Air" and "Fire"). The other poster is for PKN Louisville Vol. 9. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for the recent PKN San Sebastian Vol. 10 (also known as PKN Donostia). Above, a look at the very happy crowd.  Calendar Here's what you can look forward to this weekend, starting with tonight's (September 21) events: PKN Lucerne Vol. 5, PKN Vancouver Vol. 23, PKN Gisborne Vol. 10, and PKN London Vol. 8, which is part of this week's Lond Design Festival. On Saturday we have PKN Taipei Vol. 21, PKN Tallinn Vol. 5, PKN Hjorring Vol. 1, PKN Geneva Vol. 8, and PKN Lausanne Vol. 10, and then on Sunday it's PKN Kyoto Vol. 8.

The Sound of a Tree

Have you listened to the breathing of the world's oldest living beings? Simon Fageus went to great lengths to help give his grandfather a long-forgotten feeling of the forest trekking he used to be able to accomplish. In "The Sound of a Tree" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 113, we see that this led Simon to start on a quest to record the sounds of the oldest trees in the world, first in Sweden, then in Japan.

The Chicago House Sound

"The kick drum went through my chest, the bass line came up through the floor, the high hats and cymbals came fizzing from above ... when the smoke machine cleared, there were rich people, poor people, black, white, straight, gay ...and I thought, 'these are my people now, this is my music'."In The Chicago House Sound from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 36, IDEO's Neil Stevenson went on a quest to find the roots of House Music that, during its evolution from New York to Chicago and then in its momentum across Europe, he fell in love with.
