Christopher Jobson

A new commercial for NTT Docomo’s Touch Wood SH-08C wooden-encased phone, created by Morihiro Harano of Drill Inc. The video follows a small wooden ball that traverses a sloped xylophone “track”, relying only on the force of gravity to gradually play Bach’s Cantata 147. If only more advertising was this brilliant. (via spoon and tamago)

The sound of finches and coat hangers

April 1, 2011

From Here to Ear (v. 13) is the thirteenth iteration of an installation by French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. Primarily a sensory experience, the exhibit is meant to engage both visually and audibly as 40 finches hop delicately through a dense matrix created from hundreds of metal hangers causing vibrations and clinks that mix with the birds natural songs. Boursier-Mougenot made the rounds on several blogs last year for his audio work with finches and electric guitars. The exhibit is up through April 26. (via lost in e minor)
