…some of your favourite films here, the stories condensed to 30 secs and all parts played by bunnies. I know, I know, and yet it sort of works…
Great discussion of George Clinton and Hank Shocklee at the Future Of Music conference in the USA.
A sample (ha!) of the discussion –
arguing for the sampler-as-instrument, shocklee wanted to stress that a particular performance–the presumably ‘original’ materials for which one might hold a copyright–is not always what sample-based producers are looking for: “sometimes we sample because we just want the sound.” he offered an example to clinton: “you’ve done some incredible things with the moog synthesizer in terms of filters, effects [etc.] … in order for us to get those sounds today [is impossible].”
To hear the ORIGINAL conversation you can grab it from here.
The rest of the conference panels are online here. There are some great topics being discussed incluidng blogging and podcasting as well as the future of distribution.
Fresh open license video for use by anyone . . . . in the UK.

This is fascinating . . . place-shifting your TV watching.
Get your mate in Sydney to send the live cricket to your cricket-starved friends in Tokyo.
But that’s just the start.
Museum of Canada has a web public program where a postcard of museum collection object can be sent with message. very simple.
I had been vagulely working on a revamped free after admission soundhouse program with a similar outcome, though not web delivered. Rather visitors make postcard (actually a small quicktime movie) in soundhouse and emails this to home or friend.
Mary in EVS has been selecting potential images for use and has begun enquiring about rights for use.
Would this be easy or hard to re-produce here, given an approved set of images??
This is incredible . . . . such high quality and full screen. I think they are an Australian company.
In my race to catch up and get into this brave new world of blogging, rss feeds, etc, I’ve come across del.icio.us which seems to make sense as we look for more opportunities to make the museum experiences open and accessible…
