The perfect Christmas gift?

Venus's Hifi

Venus's Hifi

German artist Petrus Wandrey (1939 – 2012), created this stereo system called ’Venus’s Hifi’ for the Berliner Funkausstellung 1981. Rather something isn’t it? I don’t know what it sounds like but it sure looks pretty bombastic. You can buy it from Scandinavian auctioneer site Lauritz. Starting bid EUR15,000.

Would you be happy receiving this as a gift this Christmas? :)

Music on the inside

Bjoern Ewers has created these ads for the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra with photos taken from the inside of instruments. Beautiful stuff!

Maybe we should make ads with photos of the insides of our speakers:)

World famous in Sweden

We just came back from the XTZ room where we listened to singer/actress Anna-Lotta Larsson. I don’t know if she’s famous abroad but she’s very big in Sweden. She actually apologised for being amped by a Bose speaker but it sounded really good anyway. She has such a lovely voice and the guy on piano is very talented as well. Thank you for the music:)

Happy Swedish National Day

Gustavo Dudamel

Every year on this day the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra performs a free concert in Slottsskogen conducted by the young, world famous and very talented Gustavo Dudamel. Jörgen took this photo when he went last year. He said it was pretty amazing and it seem to have been a really nice day. I hope it is the same this year.

We have a lot more from Munich so we’ll be back soon.

Bavarian State Opera

We would’ve loved to go to the opera here in Munich, it’s supposed to be brilliant but there’s not enough time for that unfortunately. Maybe next time.

New York Tragedy

After the week at CES in Las Vegas we thought it appropriate to enjoy a few days off in cool New York. It turned out to be very cool indeed with lots of snow and chilly winds but hey, New York is New York and you can have a great time whatever the weather. And we sure did.

Jazz Artist

We found these illustrations of Jazz legends on the inspirational blog ‘The best Part‘ and loved them. They are drawn by very talented Ian Johnson. Lovely strong colours and fine geometrical lines mixed with realistic facial drawings.
