The Chicago House Sound

BY NEIL STEVENSON
@ VOL 36 ON DEC 01, 2015

"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. Here he shares that compelling quest and his love for Chicago House, its evolution, and the legacy of Frankie Knuckles.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, January 18th, 2016.

BY JESSICA CALDAS
@ VOL 28 ON FEB 21, 2016

"My sister reminds me every day why I do the work that I do, why these open, hard conversations are important, how we learn from them and how we help ourselves and others by having them"

In How I Understand the Work I Do (and Myself) Better Because of My Little Sister from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 28Jessica Caldas shares about the impact her little sister has on her and her art. Caldas is an aritist based in Atlanta and one whose work stems from challenging subject matter such as domestic abuse and sexual violence. Over the last year, Jessica's younger sister Shoshana has increasingly become an influence in Jessica's work through her openess, honesty, and challenging nautre. Jessica stood before strangers, some friends, and her sister to tell everyone of the special bond these two have and what the bond has meant for Jessica's art.
