    Toto's "Africa" has come home, so to speak, thanks to an installation by an artist who plans to play the song on loop in a Namibian desert -- for eternity. German-Namibian artist Max Siedentopf has set up the sound installation, called "Toto Forever," in an undisclosed location in the 1,200 mile-long Namib Desert. 'A ridiculous gesture': Ai Weiwei slams Trump's border wall, reconsiders US move The desert, on the west coast of Southern Africa, is around 55 million years old -- making it the world's oldest desert and the "perfect spot" for his work, Siedentopf, 27, told CNN in an...

The name is a synthesis of the Italian word “Piatto” (means plate) and “Arduino”, the famous open source hardware (micro controller) platform. Hans shows you how he started this project and explains the principal schematics of the Piattuino controller. Finally, you can hear some song examples.

  • Make Beethoven's Piano Great Again: Campaign to restore Beethoven's Piano by 2020

    01/12/2019 5:43:12 AM PST · by tellw · 29 replies
    Beethovenhaus Baden has launched a campaign to restore a grand piano once played by Ludwig van Beethoven. The instrument in question was made by Conrad Graf between 1811 and 1818 and is an early example of his celebrated grand pianos. Unfortunately, the piano has suffered considerable damage over the years and is now unplayable. Beethovenhaus Baden has embarked on an ambitious project to restore the instrument to its original glory in time for 2020—the 250th Anniversary of the composer’s birth. The piano will then once more be available for concerts.

    miami herald ^ | DECEMBER 29, 2018 | By Howard Cohen
    Soon it will be 50 years since Woodstock. Not sure what surprises more: the fact that seminal cultural event is coming up on a half-century or that some of its featured acts are still touring. Wasn’t rock ‘n’ roll a youth movement? Didn’t The Who’s Pete Townshend write the immortal line “Hope I die before I get old?” and sing it at Woodstock? Answers: Yes but not anymore. And yes Pete did, indeed, sing that line from “My Generation” on the third and last day of Woodstock on Aug. 17, 1969. This week, The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts...

    I Hear Music in the Air – A Homily For Christmas Midnight Msgr. Charles Pope • December 24, 2018 • The mysteries of Christmas are many. Among them is the mystery of the music heard that night. The angels shouted the great declaration, “Glory to God in the highest,” and creation took it up as a song. Why this music? Is it merely window dressing, or does it disclose a mystery to us? Is the declaration only for us, or do the angels also need it?As always with the things of God, there are realities far deeper than most...

    Dec. 24, 2018, marks Dave Bartholomew's 100 birthday. While not a household name, the New Orleans legend helped create rock 'n' roll by working on R&B hits by such names as Smiley Lewis, Huey "Piano" Smith, Shirley and Lee, Lloyd Price and, most of all, Fats Domino. Plans to celebrate Bartholomew's birthday with a tribute concert had to be postponed until 2019 after he was hospitalized last week due to complications stemming from medication he was taking for a urinary tract infection. According to Offbeat Magazine, he's in good spirits. “He kept me up talking until two in the morning,”...

  • Yes, the ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’ Victory Matters

    12/22/2018 11:16:33 AM PST · by Kaslin · 48 replies ^ | December 22, 2018 | Christian Toto
    Conservatives are used to losing culture war fights. Remember when ABC finally served up a show that treated Trump Nation with some respect? Months later “Roseanne” was gone, a victim of one God awful Tweet. Or how the right-leaning “Last Man Standing” nearly snared an early retirement after it didn’t get big enough ratings for ABC. That didn’t happen with “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” The 1944 yuletide classic came under assault, again, but this year felt different. The #MeToo wave, a worthwhile movement hijacked by the Left, targeted the film for cultural extinction. And Social Justice Warriors have more muscle...

    My Entry for the Best Hymn Ever Written Msgr. Charles Pope • December 20, 2018 • Anthony Esolen recently wrote a piece about the beauty of the older poetic and metrical hymns as compared to many modern asymmetrical and syncopated songs. I wrote a post about the beautiful hymn “Rorate Caeli Desuper” yesterday.The hymn writers of old knew that in order to get a large congregation to sing together, a steady beat or meter was needed. Most modern church songs have complex, uneven rhythms. It is no wonder that many Catholics just stand there while cantors and choirs sing...

    Editor's note: This piece contains language some readers may find offensive.The far left is having trouble fighting wars on two fronts. With President Donald Trump in office, it's fair to say that there hasn't been much of a "War on Christmas" this year, since the War on Trump is never-ending. But it's more than that. The left has become so radicalized in its deconstructionist ways that it is making a fool of itself in the court of public opinion. Oh, sure, there were a few of the usual stories about cowardly school officials issuing edicts that no choir can sing...
