The Dilemma of a Modern Violinist
BY ARIEL CLAYTON KARAS
@ VOL 27
ON FEB 18, 2016
In "The Dilemma of a Modern Violinist," professional violinist Ariel Clayton Karas chronicles humorous aspects of her musical journey and addresses the challenges classical musicians face with a genre long-considered to be "high art." Her presentation unfolds simply through all-text slides paired with a rotating soundtrack of music clips. Through "The Dilemma of the Modern Violinist," Ariel hopes new listeners will be inspired, and that "the keepers of this beautiful, unique genre of music never lose sight of its power to connect, not separate."

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.
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.

Noh at PKN Nagoya
The next PechaKucha Night in Nagoya (Vol. 3) is set to happen February 6, but today we take a look at one of the amazing presentations from last October's Vol. 2, courtesy of co-organizer Mitsuyo Hattori. When Shunichiro Hisada, a noh musician, started to talk about how Japanese people have been living with nature, and about the understanding of what "ku," the emptiness was, while showing beautiful photos of Japanese nature, the atmosphere changed.... and when he actually started to play his Japanese hand drum and sing noh, everyone in the space stopped talking... even those people chatting and chatting around the bar in the back... What a strong impact the little hand drum can give, and how tranquil the air could become with the voice in noh singing -- he gave us a very awakening moment...
PKN Lausanne Vol. 8
Here are a few photos from PechaKucha Night in Lausanne Vol. 8 -- you'll find all the presenters listed with links on the official event page -- which organizer Cyril Veillon describes thusly: "Our PechaKucha #8 in Lausanne was on the topic of the schizophrenia. Great subject in fact. We had a powerful presentation by a rap musician who was schizophrenic. Very intense. And 2 doctors, 1 TV presenter, 2 architects, 1 dancer." Please note that that PKN Lausanne Vol. 9 is happening tomorrow night (May 11) at Bellerive-Plage -- all presenters are listed on the event page.
Photos by A Guy Called Gerald
The nomadic life of a musician is one of countless stories. The legendary English musician/DJ/producer presenting in this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Berlin) is none other than A Guy Called Gerald. He discusses 20 photographs that are particularly inspiring or reminiscent for him; these include hypnoitising images of fire, shots of sunrises and sunsets from all over the world, analogue sound machines, times of strife and times of dreams, as well as an old photo from the 1960s of his mother. Hear him tell a new story with each photo introduced -- in a stream of consciousness fashion.

Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground
“Japan is not just about video games, anime, sushi..but it is incredibly diverse, progressive and colourful.” In "Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol.139, Matt Ketchum speaks about his enthusiasm towards Japan's extreme underground life as a musician. Japan's well known for its robots, anime, sushi, and ninja, but that's nowhere near the whole of Japan's cultural identity. Unseen, unheard, and damn near unsearchable but nevertheless teeming with energy, there is a completely separate dimension of Japan's creative communities: the extreme music underground.
