Discovery! YES!

My friend Ty Williams just introduced me to a side project from one of the preppy kids in Vampire Weekend. Ty says, “Dude go on my myspace, I have a song by Discovery on my page, it’s up your ally.” So I dialed my internet browser to Discover Discovery was exactly what I was about to do. And thennn, SMACK! I’m hit upside the head by their album artwork. I think it may be the first animated album artwork I’ve seen! I’ve been reading articles about the future of album art, where its going, whats going to happen with it. I actually had a conversation about how albums may end up just being skinned mp3 players. Carry around your ear buds, stop in the record shop, and buy a mp3 player which is customized by the band, with their songs on it. Pay $6.99 at the register and walk out listening.

Well thats one idea…this is another. How this is translated into the tangible world will be interesting. An LCD screen as your album cover? Seems wasteful in this time of being GREEN! I guess we will have to wait and see but eat this!

    I see a future of animated temporary tattoos, made from digital ink, that are paid for by interstitial sponsorship like Flickr or Yahoogle ads on your skin in between songs or artists. The songs are transferred over a trans-subcutaneous network piped directly into your neural network “wet-wiring” to your brains’ auditory processing area (the temporal lobe – don’t even bother registering cause I already own it.) It will be totally free to listen to but people are transformed into walking billboards. Hacking these will be cool. Hackers will start with the expected “kick me” and evolve to the retro “pwned” and other such pranks. Oh… and that song DEFINITELY needs more cowbell. And a little less electro-crash symbol. But the rest of the song is pretty cool. I also own
