In continuation of my post from last night I am embedding Nils Frahm, another sub techno musical composer. He will be playing at the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles in the coming year. His discussion on space and sound give a different voice than I typically display on theDailyTrotter so I am linking in his song “Says;” his emergent form is a bit transcendent and progressive for the music world which is a stylistic pursuit worthy of note.
Turn down the Chuck D and turn up Kiasmos. The emergent form of music from Kiasmos is poetic and exceptional. Olafur Arnalds is a musician worthy of note, from his early musical productions that led him to wandering the globe to his partnership with Janus Rasmussen. Max Richter, Greg Haines and even Vitalic have provided minimalist scapes of finely tuned sub-techno to expand on a sheet laid bare by the pioneering work of Philip Glass. While Classical improved on Baroque, will techno improve on minimalism?
A jet that resembled an F86 sabre (Sabrejet) was cruising above the Prescott quad cities region this afternoon and I want to write on fuel today. The work of aerospace is exemplary in their accomplishment of teams; some beautiful pieces of metal in this world exist because of engineered objects. MIT recently recently published an ionic flight model for efficiency and there are some advanced hyper efficient flight models in the world today. The science behind levitating metal with or without propulsion nods back to the work of Bernoulli from the 1700 where he created formulas to establish measures of force. The Wright brothers took the skies and the world has never been the same (except when you stop and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation).
In Canada, a new few being tested near fuel cell tech groups is produced from Carbon Dioxide and creates a reasonably priced fuel of carbon based material; can propulsion in combustion based engines be provided from a completely renewable energy? Yes. Future proof: electric cars, fuel cell trucks, clean combustion fuels for flight, two advanced fuel source alternatives to gasoline for traditional motors.
I had the chance to visit the Phoenix city market today and spend some time at a different pace. Phoenix is a gigantic suburb of poly-fugal centers and a good housing stock. New development is adding a significant population to it’s urban core and it has a lot of opportunity for density with urban interventionalists and artists thanks to high efficiency cooling with moderate winters of 70 degree weather. A recent article on a Phoenix area church discussed the harboring of asylum seekers in residential neighborhoods through a church; can the United States afford to uncover conservative homes to people that have not earned the right to be within the United States of America? Asylum affords safety at a lock down facility yet people’s generosity exposes some of the most conservative families to a migrant population that primarily needs protection from a Mexican mob (of which we have not much vetting on their own involvement). The church needs to protect it’s conservative health and not push the law; volunteering can cross those holding pens much more effectively.
The last day and a half I spent building a rough conceptual model of a residential design for my office. The bird’s eye perspective can give a healthy perspective on the tie to urbanism that every assessor identified parcel has. From forts, minimalist pads, traditional bungalows or some other form of habitation, a comparison between American life and an emerging city life presents one unique quandary: American life isn’t typically urban. A view into the life of a city like Shanghai or Berlin produces a density that defines an urban place; but an American city like Los Angeles has an urban core that rather quickly becomes small residential lots. Bunker Hill was previously Victorian Homes and light urban streets at the top line of the city’s original urban design from the law of the indies. As the density increases, Los Angeles needs all the fresh air it can get, but contemporary form is providing cleaner spaces with cleaner air and the city density will be able to expand through smart growth like the urban plan from Los Angeles Small Lots. The small lots of Los Angeles are low density in comparison to the previously mentioned Berlin and Shanghai, but are a healthy shift for Americans, especially when a well managed city within Los Angeles can hold a value of $30,000,000 for a residence. Affordability with definable place will start to inform surrounding cities like those in Orange County or Ventura, but America can build healthy sustainable homes in the countryside thanks to good climate and healthy low impact planning to accommodate the needs of a working class, professional class and every other class. Growing small town America is going to be a healthy endeavor for the next century.
Modern construction has invented air tight sealing for climates in northern regions and it is something amazing to have enclosures that make the grade of high performance. But, in reality it increases the dependence on mechanical systems and good intake air. Looking at the city of the future with dense metropolis regions and a low ratio of trees to people with combustion based technologies, air can be limited. One solution is to vegetate the walls (did psychiatry get the walls confused with people?) or another is tree lined boulevards with no limit to flower beds. Those photosythesizing cells make magic with oxygen production and the cities need them.
theDailyTrotter is complimenting Dezeen for it’s post on the Ministry of Design in the UAE. Showing the right project and the right images is of value. Architecture does not always have the budget to outfit buildings with aluminum domes for shade or have perfect reflection ponds; Architecture has a point to preserve and protect.
As we wait for the G20 resolution one thing can be credited with “grain”ing consensus on a world scale: sustainability. While most of the G20 has different initiatives to achieve protocols and summits, the research and documents produced by sustainability have created a global consensus that have helped world politics. Within the G20 there are so many facets of production in industries from an indian kuhlar cup to intel microchips, even to danish design rotationally molded chairs (via EU); each respective industry has different tooling sets, some use hands and others use the finest fabrication techniques ever conceived (often times the hands, but not limited from Computer Numerical Control). Something becomes clearer, managing freedom from government to the people in the 21st century will be biggest challenge not because of order, but because of the fine balances needed for human rights with an emerging world; governments will undoubtedly disagree or have debacles, but those respective governments have an increasing need for management with knowledge of their citizens whereas citizens in the past did not have email and social media. The average citizen of a country has remote power thanks to the internet and any other invention that might exist; we need order within these places while maintaining freedom. That is a problem that is both incredible and ominous for the future.
theDailyTrotter will be qualified to run for the United States of America office of President in the 2020 election. I propose to run on an independent Republican platform with the primary goal of reestablishing the core values of the Republican party without the current President. I am in need of fundraising to meet the base contribution. In the presidential election my endorsement has already gone to the prospective Biden campaign.
As we move further into the emerging age and people find their brains fogging there will be a reconsideration necessary to make progress in this digital age. The space age invented technology that can euthanize brains in minutes, completely fried and dead with a receptacle smaller than a mustard seed and a wound similar to a spider bite with an effect not too different from methanol. Those invisible satellites and telecommunication systems can connect to receptacles that destroy the brain; yet society does not usually have clear means to discuss incidents related to the attacks. Human rights are the most important subjects, especially in regard to religious freedom; society needs to speak clearly on devices that can murder without much evidence to ensure the constitutional rights of humans are not violated further.
