#Flying #Robot #Rockstars [#geekgirl]

This one isn’t that new (made in 2014). I stumbled across it when I was researching drone music. KMel Robotics (supported by the military industrial complex) presents a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are bells. Lots of bells.

björk: moon #music #video [#geekgirl]

“Moon” is a song by Icelandic artist Björk. It is the first track on her album Biophilia (2011) and was released as the fourth and final single before the release of the album. Each song in the album features a theme related to nature. In “Moon”, Björk explores the lunar cycles and the effect they have on Earth.

The #Occult Universe of #DavidBowie and #Blackstar [#geekgirl]

David Bowie Blackstar

In the wake of David Bowie’s death, his last album, “Blackstar”, is his swan song, an enigmatic conclusion to a career punctuated by otherworldly alter-egos and esoteric symbolism. We’ll look at the meaning of “Blackstar” in the context of David Bowie’s career.

Very few artists can boast the longevity of David Bowie in the music industry, as his career spanned over five decades and produced 28 albums. Throughout the decades, Bowie migrated from one musical genre to another, and even from one persona to another, but a constant remained: He was surrounded by an otherworldly aura.

Through his work, Bowie turned himself into a musical ‘ascended master’, a Gnostic Christ-like figure who achieved a high level of illumination and who sought to communicate a cryptic message to humanity. While many of Bowie’s eccentricities could be attributed to drugs and rock and roll, one cannot paint a complete picture of this artist without mentioning his most enduring obsession: Western occultism.
