Harmony through Sound Design
BY IMAN FATTAH
@ VOL 19
ON SEP 23, 2014
Iman Fattah has been in the Indonesia's rock and experimental music world since approximately 15 years ago, as a guitarist in his own band; Zeke and the Popo and RAKSASA. Growing up, he never though music will be one of his greatest passion. In PechaKucha, Iman take us as he strips down music into one single element: sound. As an aspiring sound designer, he learned how to synchronize sound with visuals through film scoring project. 'Music' is not necessarily comes in 'band' form, instead, simple toe-tapping in dance rhythm is also music. The challenge in 'designing' sound is how far can we shape them, not only by hearing but also listening. Listen means paying more attention, so eventually we can create our own harmony.

Harmonic Tapestry is not about religion just simply a tapestry of the prayers said for others who have experience hardships and trials. Sarah Johnson spent over 7 years working with victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence and other forms of painful journeys. She needed a way to work through the pain and helplessness she often felt in the work. Sara witnessed so many miracles that have forever changed my heart. So one day she picked up a needle, thread and beads...and prayed. The outcome was amazing and there are "flaws" in the products with only means the prayers are working.
We all deserve to feel beautiful and embrace our own design. Not the design of others and allow our creative side to be loud and vibrant.

How far do you migrate to reach your summer home? Well, these storks fly to Austria each year to escape Africa's sizzling summers. In today's "Presentation of the Day", writer and photographer Roland Hagenberg (along with architect Terunobu Fujimori and engineer Richard Woschitz) devised a plan to develop a house where a family of up to four humans and two birds might live in harmony. In his presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 98), Hagenberg gets into the nitty-gritty architectural and structural details, particularly focusing on how they included all the modern niceties necessary for both the human and bird families. In most cases we'd say they're killing two birds with one stone here, but in this case perhaps we should refrain.

His medium of choice is the ink pen and digitally enhancing, as he never sketches his ideas before making them permanent compositions. His work has integrated itself into the landscape of Bucks County. Scott Hengst Scott's passion for baseball and statistics can be traced back to a well-worn 1990 edition of Who's Who in Baseball.

Currently, he plays catcher, outfield, and third base for the Flemington Neshanock, a vintage baseball club that faithfully adheres to 19th century rules of the game.
