The Pictures in the Hall

BY DOUG SMITH
@ VOL 3 ON OCT 26, 2011

"He was introducing the Ziggy Stardust persona. It was obvious to everybody that it was going to be absolutely massive. I remember being aware that I was witnessing something special, the emergence of a star."

In The Pictures in the Hallway, from PechaKucha Night Derby Vol. 3, Doug Smith shares an absolutely amazing PechaKucha about photos taken in London 40 years ago, of rock legends of a phenomenal era of music. Photos of Bowie, Eno, Dury, and others now gracing his hallway in Derby, an ultimately cool testament of Smith's love for music. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on November 2nd, 2013 and again on January 14th, 2015 following the passing of David Bowie.

Inspirational Coincidences

BY RACHEL MASON
@ VOL 2 ON OCT 16, 2014

Rachel Mason talks, sings, and strums about the place where art and life, or fiction and reality meet... While doing research for a musical performance and rock opera to get inside the mind of a child killer from the 1930's, she made contact with a man who killed and dismembered a boy in Borough Park. The experience profoundly effected her, and inspired her to write an opera incidentally about a coincidence - two men with the same name Hamilton Fish, died a day apart and their deaths were announced on a single front page. One man was a child-killing sadist, the other a politician from a distinguished political family.

Creativity Loves Constraints: Improvisation, Always our Very Best Alternative

BY GERT POPPE
IN MAASTRICHT

In business as in life, we try to control the future by making (business) strategies and (marketing) plans. But most of the time, things turn our differently, don’t go as planned. And then we fall back on improvisation.

Improvisation always is our very best alternative. We improvise when something unexpected happens; we improvise because we have forgotten to take certain influences into account; we improvise when people behave differently than we expected.

The best leaders, the best managers, the best professionals are not those that excel in analysis and making plans and strategies, but the ones that fully master and exploit their improvisation skills.

And, by the way, improvisation is also a very useful approach to living one’s life.

Heavy Metal Crossing Borders

BY MARWAN AL-SAMARA'E
@ VOL 3 ON FEB 20, 2015

Marwan Al-Samara'e, who grew up in war-torn Iraq, has survived death threats - all in the name of heavy metal! Featured in a documentary called Heavy Metal in Baghdad, his band Acrassicauda was forced to leave Iraq and became refugees. He now believes dreams can come true (even if that isn't very metal) and lives in New York - preaching the power of music to cross borders.

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 ;-)

Musical Mathematics: DIY Musical Criticism

"Being the only Asian in the Math Rock crowd has it's perks; the bands recognize you."In Musical Mathematics: DIY Musical Criticism from Bandar Seri Begawan, Vol. 3, Jay Johar shares the story of his love for Math Rock, a genre of experimental rock with rhythmically complex time signatures. He explains how writing about Math Rock landed him a place on the music blog Musical Mathematics in Leeds, UK, a site where musicians submit their never-before-heard music for review and exposure. Upon returning to Brunei, Johar attempted to bring back this passion for writing, and the idea of creating something big, new, and special to Brunei's creative scene. Don't worry. You can put your calculator away.
