  • Kirill Petrenko conducts Strauss, Shostakovich and Norman @BerlinPhill

    Andrew Norman’s Sabina was beautiful. > Chief conductor Kirill Petrenko presents two works that reflect the end of the Second World War in very different ways. On the one hand Richard Strauss’s Metamorphosen: a web of sound for 23 solo strings that with warmth and transparency mourns a devastated world. In the case of Shostakovich’s Ninth Symphony, the Soviet rulers hoped for a victory symphony – but received a bright, ironic work that refuses to rejoice. We also hear Andrew Norman’s Sabina, a sound painting full of iridescent reflections of light. www.digitalconcerthall.com/en/concer…

    These events aren’t a bad dream that will fade into oblivion when we blissfully wake up, or as the climax of some ongoing story we’re reading or watching; instead, they’re the direct and understandable result of past and ongoing processes

    Historian’s point of view are worthwhile reads. Let’s Say the Scary Parts Out Loud - Perspectives: Past, Present, and Future, by Patrick Wyman

    Listening to The Berlin Phil Series: “Kirill Petrenko Live” Sat, 23 May 2020, 10:00 After the European Concert, which was moving for everyone involved, chief conductor Kirill Petrenko now appears once again with members of the Berliner Philharmoniker in an empty Philharmonie. On this occasion, works from the turn of the century to the 1920s are on the programme: Arnold Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht, which is characterised by a late Romantic tone, Claude Debussy’s atmospheric Prélude à lʼaprès-midi dʼun faune as a beacon of French Modernism, and Paul Hindemith’s spirited and witty Kammermusik No. 1.

  • City life could improve if we take environmental concerns seriously — Beautiful News

    “With lockdowns in place, businesses closed and transport at a standstill, air quality has been soaring. Delhi, the 5th most polluted city in the world, has seen a 60% decline in airborne pollutants.

    It doesn’t solve the long term problem of toxic air. But it does show how city life could improve if environmental concerns were addressed more urgently. “ — @beautiful__news

  • Be a Smart Citizen

    The project uses open source technologies such as Arduino to enable ordinary citizens to gather information on their environment and make it available to the public on the Smart Citizen platform.

    Smart citizen is a unique ecosystem of sensing devices, software platforms, and engagement tools that genuinely enable communities to make sense of their environment.

    The Smart Citizen Kit allows people to easily measure and collect data such as air and noise pollution from their environment, and visualize it while sharing it with everyone on its dedicated platform. All of these, while being completely open source and customizable to your needs.

    Sensors for

    • weather conditions
    • air quality
    • noise pollution
    • light pollution


  • The Paper Microscope

    Foldscope is the ultra-affordable paper microscope. It was designed to be portable and durable, while performing on par with conventional research microscopes (140X magnification and 2 micron resolution). I bought a kit plus some prepared slides of microbes, plants and insects to see what it’s like. @TeamFoldscope #citizenscience
