PKN Musical Comments in Salzburg
During last month's PechaKucha Night in Salzburg Vol. 2, attendees were treated to the first instance -- as far as we know -- of "musical comments." Organizer Bernhard Jenny explains: After our second PechaKucha Night in Salzburg we received numerous positive feedback. Our idea of inviting the John Bruno Quartet for “musical comments” was especially successful. We informed the band in advance about the topic of the presentations, so that after every presentation a short -- mostly amusing -- interlude (approximately 1 minute) was played, like an excerpt of a known song. Live music used for warming up, chilling out and for loosening up in between the presentations. The John Bruno Quartet can be booked worldwide ;-)

Tri Minh is a huge music fan, and in "New Music Scene in Vietnam," he walks us through the evolution of popular music in Vietnam. He also shares how he has been trying to introduce independent and underground music to his countrymen. It was recorded at PechaKucha Night in Hanoi Vol. 3, and is in English.
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.
