Omniwerk: Instrument builders in wonderland | by Bachtrack for classical music, opera, ballet and dance event reviews
Via David Bruce,

"At last summer’s BRQ Vantaa Festival, audiences were introduced to a remarkable new instrument: the omniwerk. Jonte Knif and harpsichord builder Jukka Ollikka combined two historical keyboard instruments – the geigenwerk (or viola organista) and the lauternwerk – into one totally new instrument."

The Harpsichord's Historical Pickle - YouTube, Jun 2018 - David Bruce Composer
"The harpsichord has certainly suffered from the slings and arrows of historical fortunes. In this video I look at how the rise of the piano and later the early music movement left us with a historical pickle which needs some clever players and manufacturers to find a solution for. It remains an amazing instrument which I've enjoyed writing for several times in recent year. "

(6) 100 year old Polyrhythms Vs. New Polyrhythms - YouTube - David Bruce
I look at the musical reasons composers use polyrhythms, taking two composers over 100 years apart - Chopin and Ligeti, both wrote music filled with polyrhythms. Although their music sounds very different, their aims were surprisingly similar.

In Search of Lost Time on YouTube - The New Atlantis, Laurence Scott, Summer 2019
"But while there are few things more clearly of-the-moment than our biggest video-sharing site, YouTube is also the closest thing we have invented to a time machine: Its channels open new routes back to the past. Over these years I’ve come to understand that my YouTube, what I make of it, is one of the most melancholy places I’ve ever visited"

"The French theorist Roland Barthes was sensitive to both the melancholy and the spectrality of images from the past. His concept of “the punctum,” which he formulated in his meditation on photography, Camera Lucida (1980), predicts some of the angst of inhabiting YouTube’s emotional landscape, its world of resurrected moments. The punctum is a detail in a photographic image that pierces the viewer’s imagination. For Barthes, it is “that accident which pricks me (but also bruises me, is poignant to me).” The punctum is never part of an image’s intended meaning, never a planned, conscious detail but rather an accidental, tiny storehouse of emotion. Watching old YouTube videos originating from my childhood years is guaranteed to leave me feeling like a pincushion. The puncta are everywhere."

"Much of my YouTube nostalgia is explicitly, tenaciously sought. With eyes wide open, I’ve gone in search of a specific scene from the 1980s cartoon Ulysses 31, a sci-fi retelling of Homer’s Odyssey."

' “What are you doing here?” carries with it an air of trespass that can accompany any journey into the YouTube Time Machine. The controversial Article 13 of the new digital copyright law, just passed in the European Parliament, seeks to make YouTube and other platforms responsible for policing the illegal use of copyrighted content. '

"The digital, unbloody ease with which YouTube revives the past, so much more nimbly than its DVD and VCR predecessors, invites us to become re-watchers of the same content. Indeed, quick repetition is a main feature of our new digital aesthetics. Whereas we use GIFs — those twitchy, looping clips — as public illustrations of our feelings or responses to events, an oft-repeated YouTube video is the GIF’s private counterpart. Re-watching familiar videos can be a kind of secular prayer. There is comfort in the repetition, and the videos to which we give this repeated attention can feel deeply personal."

"The way cameras capture sunlight — how sharp or powdery or white or golden — or the subtle changes in tone that microphones give to voices, are historically specific."

"For Freud, melancholia and mourning are both connected to a loss, but differ in how the loss is perceived. While a mourner is vividly aware of why he despairs, the source of a melancholic’s lamentation can be harder to identify."

(81) Building 15-Foot-Tall Pianos - YouTube May 2019
David Klavins is a pianist who, for years, could not find pianos that made the sounds he imagined in his head. So he began building pianos to his own specifications in a workshop in Vác, Hungary, and they are truly unique creations. To wit: Klavins’ vertical concert grand stands over 15-feet tall, and he actually has to climb a ladder to play it, which he does, beautifully, just for us.

YouTube algorithm changes negatively impact Google ad revenue
In the first quarter of 2018, Google began making changes to YouTube’s algorithms designed to stop harmful content from appearing in the feed of recommended videos you see on the side of a video page.
But all of those garbage videos also kept engagement high. It kept YouTube users tuned in to their feeds beyond the video they came to watch, even if the company said they only made up less than 1% of all videos on the site.
