To do in LA tonight: "Computers in Popular Music," Johannes/monochrom at Machine Project


If you happen to be in Los Angeles tonight, and you are reading Boing Boing, you really should be at Johannes (of monochrom)'s talk over at Machine Project gallery about the image of computers in popular music. "I can count every star in the heavens above but I have no heart I can't fall in love..." Link to event description, starts around 8pm.

And if you can't make it, here is archived media of an earlier version of the talk presented in 2007.

Video Above: Computer No. 3, a weird song from 1968 by France Gall which Johannes will no doubt reference in his talk. You gotta watch this. Someone took the original performance recording from 1968 and remixed/dolled it up.
