Our food source - local or industrial

BY AARON BROCKEN
@ VOL 12 ON MAY 20, 2015

We are what we eat...

In our business we work with local farmers from the Hawkesbury area and if possible, with local organic fruit and vegetables. The products are sourced locally and are fair trade. 

We use as less package as we can, so we reuse everything, we don’t buy anything that is made outside of Australia and we recycle as much as we can, so that the product we deliver to you has low environmental impact, low food miles and a lot of character!

Aaron was born on an organic blueberry farm that we still get produce from on occasion. He spent a big part of his youth being dragged to the Richmond community garden (Earthcare) and around NSW with his dad certifying Organic farms. As soon as he was 18 he hit the road for 7 years and visited over 60 countries on 4 different continents. He is now back and dedicated to providing a framework for a local food system to work.

Algorithmic Compositions

BY MICHAEL EDWARDS
@ VOL 25 ON DEC 06, 2013

Michael Edwards is a composer, performer, and software developer. He is the author of the slippery chicken algorithmic composition package. His compositional interests lie mainly in the development of structures for hybrid electro-instrumental pieces through the integration of algorithmically produced scored materials with similarly generated computer-processed sound. He is also active as an improvisor on laptop, saxophones, and MIDI wind controller, performing for instance at the 2008 Montreaux Jazz Festival.

Michael's compositions have been played worldwide at many international festivals, including the Darmstadt Ferienkurse, the International Computer Music Conference (Banff, Havana, Ljubljana), the Zagreb Biennale, the Seoul International Computer Music Festival, etc., and by leading ensembles/performers such as Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Aventure, Ensemble Intercontemporain, IRCAM, Experimentalstudio Freiburg, Marcus Weiss, Sarah Nicolls, Rei Nakamura, and Garth Knox.

Michael studied composition at Bristol University with Adrian Beaumont (BA, MMus) and privately with Gwyn Pritchard. In 1991 he moved to the US for further studies in computer music with John Chowning at CCRMA, Stanford University (MA, Doctor of Musical Arts). Whilst studying there he also worked at IRCAM, Paris, with a residence grant at Cité des Arts. During 1996-7 he was a consultant software engineer in Silicon Valley and developed a Document Recognition System used in several US hospitals. In 1997 Michael was appointed Lecturer in Music Theory at Stanford but later that year moved to Salzburg, Austria. He was Guest Professor at the Universität Mozarteum until 2002, when he came to the University of Edinburgh.

Your Brand Is Bullsh!t

BY KEVIN SMITH
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 09, 2018

All that glitters is not gold and this is never more true than in a day when online profiles, avatars, and "branding" has taken over how we package ourselves. While the world becomes obsessed with creating "personal brands," Kevin Smith argues that the true worth of a brand is in its dependability, and in order to achieve this, we have to understand our leverage points then double down on who we are.

Large wide prague 11 01

PKN Prague Vol. 11

For a look at the previous PechaKucha Night in Prague (Vol. 11), we try something a bit different, starting with a bit of a dialogue, written by organizer Jana Kostelecka. Take note that PKN Prague Vol. 12 will be held on April 16. A: Eleventh, it feels like going home from the first one was only yesterday. B: Yes, but yesterday wasn't a summer's eve. A: Hmm... but the amazement is exactly the same. B: Which was your favourite then? A: I loved Čestmír Suška's ability of seeing the most fragile beauty in the steel industrial waste, it was like multi-tonne easter eggs. B: When you look at the Zdeněk Ziegler posters where the fonts were hand-painted and collaged, one regrets that globalization moved on and that posters always come in one package with the films these days. You can hardly make an exhibition of the posters to one film these days. CTRL-C CTRL-V. A: I dreamed of fantasy worlds. Jakub Dvorský (Amanita Design). You live in a universe of the stub floating in the timeless space, inhabited with curious creatures and rockets made of cans of Kostelecke parky (sausages). Have you ever tried their game? …and the other chronicler of the insubstantial senses -- Alžběta Skálová. I wish I was a kid again, I remember my favourite illustrations were in the book Alice in Wonderland, but it was nothing like this. When we were small, there were too little books of unreal worlds and its inhabitants… …they came alive in the wicked pupetery of Martina Černá and Anna Issa Šotolová (Imagery). The rabbit-chicken teddy bear was kind of scary-funny. Moving down the rabbit hole. B: Then you have the too dark painters, the dark horor of gypsy folk songs in Ladislava Gažiová paintings and Vladimír Skrepl, the first AEROnaut. A: I fancied the book by Magdalena Kalistová on the green home. Only, the form does not correspond with the sense, so can there ever be beauty in green? And what about the architects? B: I am excited when I see people care about the landscape and public spaces, and restrain their greed for more in the means of expanding, in lieu of the quality of space. In this light, the A.LT work in Poznan is excellent. Jan Jehlík put his ideas on urbanism clear -- and it's not every day that you see a hand-painted presentation. A: I liked the simple garden resturant in the ZOO by FAM Architekti. B: Did you notice that the product designers at PechaKucha do toys? Are you seeing any connection between Jana's Zacharias or are they simply adorable. Adorable. HuberoKororo does a Dino Rocking Horse which reminded me of my blow-up buffalo of old. A: If I had studied hard, I would have been as knowledgeable as Jan H. Vitvar, and possibly would get the track of what Richard Loskot was doing with all the wiring. B: When is the next one? Čestmír Suška (sculptor) Čestmír Suška is working with steel and iron industrial waste, transforming its weighty substance into something airy, cutting out the borders of the space and letting the light in. He creates a possibility of meeting Richard Serra and Daniel Pirsc. Alžběta Skálová (illustrator and graphic designer) Alžběta Skálová is creating ethereal records of her feelings in dapples of pure colour which are comming alive. She is keyholing the soul and candidly letting it out. From the illustrations, you can smell the sea and hear the giggle of the creatures from the kitchen drawer, who wake up in the middle of the night. Alžběta is tightly collaborating with the children book publisher Baobab. Zdeněk Ziegler (graphic designer and typographer) Zdeněk Ziegler is best known for his film posters, of which he has created 274 between 1963 and 1989. It was the golden age of collage and hand-painted fonts. Imagine creating a poster to, say, Hitchcock's Birds, and having one smuggled in, magazine and a pencil in your hand. We are deep in the communist times, and the censorship is almighty. And still, you create super-temporal works. It can be thanks to the lack of readymade culture, and the almighty promotion of the film industry. Jakub Dvorský of Amanita Design (flash games, website, and vision designer) Amanita Design creates games from some kind of past universe, where you come accross the remains of a human civilisation grown back in nature. It creates a kind and snuggy world, floating in peace. You wake up into a dream with eyes wide open, and you can even meddle with its goings. It works in the most unpredictable and radiant way.

There's something about this makeshift sign for PechaKucha Night in Pontevedra Vol. 2 that we just plain like. The package originally contained a copy of the official PechaKucha Night book we sent to organizer Martino Villaverde Gestido.

We just wanted to share a big public thanks to the organizers and all of the presenters of PechaKucha Night in Mar del Plata for the amazing care package they sent to the PKN HQ here in Tokyo -- it included a little something from each and every presenter who participated in that city's first volume back in January. I can assure you that it put a great big smile on everyone's face.
