Vemödalen is the fear that everything has already been done.

Vemödalen
28 July 2018

Vemödalen: The frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist—the same sunset, the same waterfall, the same curve of a hip, the same closeup of an eye—which can turn a unique subject into something hollow and pulpy and cheap, like a mass-produced piece of furniture you happen to have assembled yourself.

The Quietest Room in the World
17 April 2018

You can hear your heartbeat and the noise of your bones in Orfield Laboratories’ ‘anechoic chamber’, designed by Microsoft for product testing. The longest that anyone stayed in the room is 45 minutes, while the average time to stay in the room is only 10 minutes.

Its ultra-quietness is achieved thanks to 3.3-foot-thick fiberglass acoustic wedges, double walls of insulated steel and foot-thick concrete. While the lowest frequency that was measured in the room is 20.6 decibels, the lowest audio frequency that human mind can hear is 0 decibels.

The silence that the room offers makes human brain produce conflicting signals. And because of these conflicting signals, the people in the room can see hallucinations. Orfield Laboratories’ ‘anechoic chamber’ is 99.99 per cent sound absorbent and holds the Guinness World Record for the world’s quietest place.

Electronic Music Festivals in Historical Places
15 April 2018

Most of the world’s leading electronic music festivals are held at the most striking points of the nature. Recently, the number of electronic music festivals that are organized
in historical places are also on the rise.

 

UVA Festival

The festival is held at an area that contains a 15th century monastery. Needless to say that the monastery is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.  Electronic music is played and enjoyed on 3 stages in UVA.  Also, there is no difficulty in finding a hotel to stay in the festival area sice Ronda, where the festival is held, is one of the most important touristic cities of Spain.

 

Instytut Festival

The festival is held within Modlin Fortress, one of the most important cultural values of Poland. While techno music is given prominence in this festival, where the motto is ‘Music and Art’, visual arts are incredibly featured too. And since Warsaw is cheaper than most of the other european cities, the festival receives a broad participation every year.

 

Nuits Sonores

Whilst the festival that creates increased employment for  the city of Lyon is held all around the city, the artists take stage on places like old factories and the historical areas of the city. With this choice of the festival management, Nuits Sonores has become one of the most significant electronic music festivals in the last 10 years and every year the prominent figures of electronic music are given a place in the festival’s line-up.

It’s Nearly Impossible to Enter Berghain
14 April 2018

Beyond dispute, Berghain is one of the most popular night clubs in Berlin. Even some people who has nothing to do with techno music want to get in the club because of its popularity. But it’s really difficult to enter the club. People who speak loudly or try to draw attention while waiting in line to enter the club are absolutely not allowed inside. Also, anyone who tries to take a photo in the club is thrown out immediately. Besides, a serious patience is required to enter Berghain. Because the line at the entrance can be very long and you might have to wait for more than
2 hours in the line to get in the club.
 
Two years ago two students in berlin created a simulation named ‘Berghaintrainer’ to find out if you can enter the club or not. In the simulation, a bodyguard appears and asks you the questions ‘How old are you?’, ‘ıs this your first time coming?’, ‘Where did you come from?’ and ‘Who is playing today?’. Up to today, many people tried the simulation because of the fear of waiting in line for nothing as well as to find out the result that the simulation provides.
