This stop motion music video, created by Dropbear, aka Jonanthan Chong, for the Melbourne indie-folk band Hudson, is made almost entirely from colored pencils! Not only is the song, ‘Against The Grain’, great but the video is really amazing.

iVictrola by Made-Craft at Design Within Reach in November

I’m really loving this iVictrola dock by Made-Craft. The iPhone & iPad models will be on limited sale, for $985, through DWR in November but they can also be bought through Made-Craft’s Etsy page. The merging of the digital device and a vintage Magnavox phonograph horn creates a one of kind dock that uses passive amplification to shoot your audio around the room. The bases are hand crafted from beautiful pieces of American Walnut.

Sound Console by Fancois Chambard

Check out this awesome bespoke sound console by designer Francois Chambard, principle at Brooklyn based UM Project, for sound engineer and producer Allen Farmelo. The mid-century modern console it built to be completely broken down for moving and blends steel and wood in perfect harmony.

Farmelo explains:

“Francois has the challenge bringing industrial steel and wood together, and I have the challenge of bringing a software arpeggio and a string quartet together. We have to both highlight those differences and blend them together in a way that works.”
