Interesting New Sight and Sound Blog: Mood Organ
Seattle omnimusician (and Midday Veil cohort) Timm Mason is the latest in a long line of local creative types to jump on the blogging bandwagon. Titled Mood Organ (after his Debacle/Aphonia Recordings solo project that has been garnering some excellent press lately), Timm’s month-old blog is already home to a heady mix of video-heavy investigations of all sorts of (mostly) musical tangents. I recommend checking in the next time you find yourself lamenting the fact that you ran out of awesome stuff to watch on YouTube. You will be rewarded with a treasure trove of synaesthetic oddities, like this mind-blowing collaboration between pioneering composer Raymond Scott and Jim Henson on the Tonight Show (an oldie but goodie that always merits another look):
Timm has also taken to posting excellent playlists on Twitter (you can follow him here). Here’s to hoping he keeps up the good work!
