In other news, there’s a new Symphony of Science song / video out.  It is “The Unbroken Thread,” featuring Carl Sagan (yet again), along with David Attenborough and Jane Goodall, and it is biology themed.  The clips used in this installment come from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, David Attenborough’s Charles Darwin and the Tree of Life, The Life of Mammals, The Living Planet, BBC Life, XVIVO Scientific Animations, IMAX Cosmic Voyage, Jane Goodall’s TED Talk, and a clever Guinness Commercial. The themes present in this song attempt to explore the wild diversity of life on our planet, the intricacy and origin of its mechanisms, and its close relation to all other life forms.

If you don’t know what Symphony of Science is… it started with “A Glorious Dawn” with Carl Sagan (from Cosmos).  It’s a brilliant auto-tuned mashup, and they also released it on vinyl (best of the year for me in 2009).  You can download the mp3s of the various songs over at the SOS site.

I’m more a Kaki King fan, but I dig 2Pac on this mashup, too.

Unrelated sidenote: Amoeba Music recently posted the July 2007 in-store performance from Earth (an interview and two songs: Omens and Portents I: The Driver -and- Engine of Ruin).  http://www.amoeba.com/live-shows/videos/earth.html

Dave Brubeck Quartet & Radiohead
Take Five” meets “15 Step

I don’t think it works as well as whoever intended it to work… but I suppose it’s OK as far as mashups go.

And in other music…

  • Live electronic artists Holy Fuck have done a cover of Röyksopp‘s “Happy Up Here.”  Check it out (streaming) over HERE.
  • U2‘s new album, No Line on the Horizon, comes out… Tuesday.  I totally forgot about it.  Geez.
  • Sufjan Stevens and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) joined the Clogs and Bell Orchestre in joining the Brooklyn Philharmonic at the Brooklyn Academy of Music the other day. Check out Pitchfork for a review and pictures of the event, and the Brooklyn Vegan blog posted some pics and a review as well.
