Some numbers on the audience for music

barthel:

The NCAA basketball finals, held last night, were watched by over 18 million people at their peak. That’s 6% of the U.S. population. In contrast, Pharrell’s “Happy,” currently the #1 single in the country, has sold about 3 million copies, or 1% of the U.S. population. (If…

the guy didn’t even tell them about having to have AA batteries…

also, i’m stoked about the few kids that get it. “well, an iPad costs you $700…”

On the song, frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s high pitched yelp and guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López’s frenetic, reverb-heavy guitar theatrics work in tandem to showcase their undeniable chemistry that’s carried them throughout their At The Drive-In and Mars Volta days. A brooding and chugging bassline from Flea gives the track some proto-punk flair, as Bixler-Zavala sings about atheists in foxholes and “falling out of the sky.”

vocals can make it or break it for me on tunes. Bixler-Zlava’s has always been a bit too brash for me, but the tune is solid. this is a welcome combination. i have a feeling Omar Rodriguez-López will be looking for another new combination NEXT year.

This Is Why Switchfoot Won't Sing Christian Songs Anymore

i don’t like the title of the article, but the content is wonderful. Switchfoot has held this stance for a LONG time and has reached a LOT of people with their approach to music as Christians. Jon Foreman is very well read and very well spoken. The comparison that he makes to C. S. Lewis,  J.R.R. Tolkien, and J. S. Bach are important. The works of these men are made from Christian minds for the world at large as - if i remember correctly - Christ came for the world at large. 

Anyway, i find that this also points at quality of art as well, but that’s another rant.

That’s one of the great things about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people and they’ll sing it back for 85,000 different reasons.

 faig ahmeds Embroidered Art 

When you think of traditional carpets from Azerbaijan, the thought of contemporary art does not quickly spring to mind… but these beautiful, and modern works will change that. Faiq Ahmed, a native of the Eurasian nation, has taken his countries old-school art form and brought it beautifully into the current era, deconstructing the ancient process of weaving and adapting it to todays contemporary art forms.
