Bondi Beach-based street artist NOT NOT aka Cam Scott captured my imagination last year with ‘Digital Realities’, his thought provoking street art series designed to have us individually to consider the impact of the behaviours and addictions that the major platforms and mobile phone technology are creating, breeding and feeding in society and our everyday lives.
From our digital selves to clickbait compulsions, this is a fascinating exploration into the digital world and I loved having him on the show! We share our own individual techniques that we use for regular digital escape, Centre for Humane Technology’s approach to ‘“realigning technology with humanity’s best interests, the LIKE IRL project, his TEDx TED Talk, how Cam Scott came to create his Sunnys Eyewear brand, ‘In Praise of Idleness’ and NOT NOT’s 2 key pieces of advice that he’d give to someone who has a dream, but is afraid to take that first step.
Super inspiring and fascinating chats with a highly intelligent, genuine, thoughtful and personable individual. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
Alt J launch Aussie entrepreneurs’ global SOUNDHALO technology that’s set to change the world of live music!
Soundhalo’s exclusive, amazing first footage has to be seen to be believed.
Alt J live from London’s Brixton Academy:
2 music-loving Aussie entrepreneurs with big dreams & balls of steel are taking on the world… live music as we know it, has changed forever!
Overnight in London, British rock quartet Alt J launched the beta version of Soundhalo at a live concert at the UK’s world-renown O2 Brixton Academy. Soundhalo’s ground-breaking technology allows music-lovers to “download and share artist-endorsed live gigs in an instant” with “mind blowing quality anytime, anywhere.”
The Soundhalo technical production team capture high-quality live audio and video content of the world’s largest international acts, then deliver it to your smartphone SOUNDHALO App in an instant… as.. it.. happens…
No more annoying phones in your face at festivals & gigs.. drunk, high or sober.. soundhalo captures the moment.. your moment.. and makes it available for immediate download in both audio and video format, then can be synced across all your devices.
Soundhalo is a wicked concept born of an idea by Baz Palmer’s (Hunters & Collectors) 22-year-old son, Declan, who imagined “capturing in real time, a band’s live performance” in “that intense, insane magical moment that only live music can muster”. When Baz met Soundhalo Co-Founder & CEO Liza Boston through a mutual friend over a boozy music biz lunch, they instantly built a rapport with a shared passion for music/technology and Baz knew he’d found the person to work with to bring a rock-star’s dream into reality. After untold hours putting teams together, countless meetings & planning sessions, traveling the globe collecting frequent flyer miles and testing, testing, testing… it’s here..
When asked for his thoughts, Gus Unger-Hamilton from Alt-J said: “I think the future of music and technology as an artist, and looking at how artists and fans interact, is really exciting. Artistic output no longer has to be be dictated by the things it used to be. It used to be how much music can you fit on a vinyl record? And how long is a video cassette? Now that no longer has to be the case.”
So all you Android users get on it! You can be the first people on the planet to use this game-changing technology! Go to soundhalo.com to download the app. iPhone won’t be far behind with an iOS version due in the coming months.
And in the wise words of my mate Liza…. Rock on! Aroooooooooooooooo! 😀
