This month, marks the 4oth anniversary of the Apollo 11 expedition to the moon,
a triumph of human achievement in terms of technology and development. So, in the spirit of the celebration, 'mencari bunyian elektrik' segment is previewing something outside our local context, in this case the world and looking upwards beyond our hazy sky of the journey in space exploration to the moon. Below is the link of the audio samples from the in-flight communication throughout their entire journey.

I personally feels that it the most important 'static sounds' in humankind history.


Coming back down to earth,
with the upbeat soothing minimalistic sounds of Tenderfist.

This month I'm taking a break from the glitch and stomping beats to something minimal while undergoing the hazy weather. Not to be confused by the acoustical approach of Tenderfist with any other 'acoustical' act, outhere. My personal take on the minimalistic approach of Tenderfist allow me to focused on each 'upbeats' alongside the vocal and the acoustic guitar.

It's something great to be listening too, especially while cruising through the congested streets of Kuala Lumpur.

Optimism, Pessimism & Cynicism

DATUM09, Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur.

By the time I'm writing this post, DATUM:KL09 have concluded its 2 days talks. It was an inspiring session, a breath of fresh air of where we & architecture could/ should and will be heading next, and deeply taking a consideration of the current world problems and crisis in every (most) design aspects.

But my post today it's not about Datum, but the mindset in facing theses 'challenges' while heading towards the next step. There seems to be three major feelings of these challenges after that day and its all kind of mixed up.

"We visit this town & we found out that there a lot of abandon buildings. However, there is a lot of activities in term of market. Therefore, we proposed that we demolished the whole town to create spaces for the market."
