NASA have released this incredible short video from their Solar Dynamics Observatory showing the solar flares from March 6th 2012.

A NEW HAND-HELD NEO GEO FROM SNK?

SNK ‘own’ the Arcade Game.  No contest.  Now, they’re looking to bring 20 of their classics back to life with the release of a new handheld Neo Geo device.  It might look like an iPhone (which we may never hear the end of), but with it’s 4.3 inch screen, D-pad, R1/L1 buttons, an AV output and an SD slot (more titles in the offing?), this little thing could be a real hit with gamers everywhere.  The device is a licensed product, but there is no news yet on the production of these things – keep an eye out, and we’ll all be playing the classics, hopefully in no time at all.

BACH CELLO SUITE No.1 : DECONSTRUCTED

Check out Alexander Chen’s baroque.me project; using video (and a whole lot of maths and musicology) he’s designed a piece of software which deconstructs Bach’s Cello Suite No.1 Prelude so that the listener/viewer can visualise the piece and gain a new understanding of the composition.

It’s fun, and very very clever.

Chen says: ‘Using the mathematics behind string length and pitch, it came from a simple idea: what if all the notes were drawn as strings? Instead of a stream of classical notation on a page, this interactive project highlights the music’s underlying structure and subtle shifts.’
