Obsolete happens on the first Saturday of every month. It’s a celebration of low bit music and art. This edit is from June. It was my first time helping shoot a show on video. I like how the The Precinct’s footage and cut came out. I hope you enjoy it. The July Obsolete is happening this Saturday (facebook event) from 8:30pm to 2:00 am at piXel [+] freQuency in Downtown LA (931 E Pico Blvd. Suite 202). Come!
I filmed at piXel [+] freQuency last night (maybe you’ll see the footage someday). They hosted an event called Obsolete, which featured music generated from, you guessed it, obsolete technologies, like Game Boys. All the sets were great.
After the show was over D. Bene, The Tleilaxu Music Machine, was coaxed in to performing a mini set. It was also great. He shared this set on The Book from April 2011 this morning.
Now I want to hear low bit moombahton!
I’m am continually amazed by the resourcefulness of the Los Angeles homeless, especially their ability to reuse objects most people would consider trash. You don’t have to be rich to be creative, it is part of the human experience. To homeless or homed creativity can offer both a rise in the standard of living and a sense of dignity. When you use your time and energy and create something, it’s satisfying and keeps you going.

In the absence of trees or tent poles, these guys on the left use the supports of two security doors to make home for the night.
