John Pointer

And thus started John Pointer's presentation at last week's Pecha Kucha Night Vol. 4 in Austin. Some may be intimated at the thought of putting together a presentation for PKN, but John proves that a lo-fi approach can still pack a high-def message. Below, the rest of John's presentation, which covers his use of a patron area on his website. "Individuals can have all of my music for as little as $2/month," explains John. "I'm building a salary to make new music this way, and I don't need to sell my tracks -- they're already paid for collectively -- so the patrons can distribute them freely via file sharing." Here's a bio on John (visit his website for more info): John Pointer graduated from UT with a BA in Cello performance and composition in 1997. He has been a full time performer since then, starred in multiple commercials as a human beatbox, won 9 Austin Music Awards, played Judas in Zach Scott Theater's production of Jesus Christ Superstar, is in the Cirque du Soleil talent pool, and is a compulsive problem solver.

Listen

Do you hear that? For those that can hear, it is a constant and involuntary act. Listening, on the other hand, is a choice and takes effort. We, as humans, are listening less and less to the environments in which we live. Is this because we create sonically distasteful cities that aren’t worth listening to? Or is it our waning interest in listening to blame for inadequate urban soundscape planning? Mitch Allen will explore the answers to these questions at Pecha Kucha Night Ubud 20x20x20 on August 26th. Mitch is the founder of OneTwoStudios, with over 10 years experience in music composition and 8 years in acoustics. In both fields he has been engaged by big profile clients to work on landmark projects, and commissioned for various soundscape installations. His passion lies in sound design in the context of urban environments.

Extreme Beauty

  "Photography gives me a medium to escape from daily routine life by creating something beautiful" In Extreme Beauty from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Fashion photographer Apple Chua shares in depth how she turned her passion into her career.
