Thanks to Google, Joan Miro, Spanish surrealist.
Thanks to Julian Sanchez, about whose children I believe Chuck Mangione waxed rhapsodic, Amon Tobin; in particular, Bricolage‘s jazz-trance tracks. That also cued me in to Google’s music search (example), which will give you direct links to the iTunes Music Store.
One thought on “Cool Discoveries”
And those of us who saw the google thing and thought “Hey this Miro guy has some pretty good stuff” just got a big FU from the Artists’ Rights Society and the Miro estate. They seem to think that a tribute to the late painter using his style is a corruption of the artist’s work, and more laughably, an infringement of his copyright.
So now, when I hear the name Miro, instead of thinking ‘huh?’ as I did before Google’s tribute, or ‘cool surrealist painter’ after, I’m now going to think of ‘Jerks getting bitchy about a well intentioned tribute, and showing no effing sense of humor’.
Maybe that’s the legacy he would have wanted, though, so who am I to judge?*
* For the record, regardless of who I am to judge, I’m judgin’. Jerks.
