Barrel Organ

BY LEO VAN DER VEEN
@ VOL 6 ON FEB 02, 2012

Leo van der Veen leads you through his way of thinking, in this case, by showing how he created a barrel organ by using an old church organ that has been rammed with an iron in order to rotate it -- and it still makes great music. Do you know how groceries sound? Your daily yoghurt? A pack of cereal? Peanut butter? Each barcode can be scanned with Leo's tool, to then reveal its own voice. (in Dutch)

Discovering Tokyo in a Day and Groceries that Produce Music

Presentations
Jean-Paul Toonen is the organizer of PKN Maastricht, and in this presentation done in Tokyo (Vol. 94), he walks us through one of his days spent visiting our dear city, sharing funny observations about the way that Tokyo (and Japan) can appear to a foreigner. All photos were taken the day before the PKN.

In this presentation (in Dutch, from PKN Amersfoort Vol. 6), Leo van der Veen walk us through his way of thinking, in this case, by showing how he created a barrel organ by using an old church organ that has been rammed with an iron in order to rotate it -- and it still makes great music. Do you know how groceries sound? Your daily yoghurt? A pack of cereal? Peanut butter? Each barcode can be scanned with Leo's tool, to then reveal its own voice.

Posters
Yesterday we shared a flyer image for the upcoming PKN Guatemala City Vol. 2, and today's addition to the Tumblr blog is a proper poster for the event, which is taking place on August 4. 

Photos
PechaKucha founders Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein were being interviewed today in their office (Klein Dytham architecture) for a magazine, and here's a quick shot as they were posing for a proper photo for the article. The setup surrounding them reveals the equipment used to record the greeting videos they always prepare and send to PKN city organizers for their first event, and for the city's Vol. 20. 

Calendar
What can you expect over the weekend? First, on Friday, we have the following four events: PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 10, PKN Pune Vol. 5, PKN Ekaterinburg Vol. 4, and PKN Tbilisi Vol. 2. On Saturday, we have PKN Latina Vol. 2, PKN Salt Spring Island Vol. 3, and PKN San Juan (Argentina) Vol. 7. Sunday will finish us off with PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11 and PKN Mendoza Vol. 5.
