Anyway, if you haven’t seen it, the focus of the Intel and the right proper Vibe sponsored The Creators Project is exhibits and installations from artists while using their website as the conduit for it all. Events will start in New York, then hit London, Sao Paulo, Seoul, and Beijing by September. A live stream will take place starting June 26 at the site, and you can follow the project on Twitter of course. There’s something ironic about one short with U.K. producer/musician/DJ Mark Ronson. He talks about going old school and using keyboards from the 70s and 80s found on eBay for recording his latest work, given the advances in microprocessors now with Intel. Okay, well, I thought it mildly ironic. What was worth checking out here though is Ronson’s take on where distribution and compensation of musicians is headed. I’m hearing free, maybe it’s me. There are a bunch of other profiles including a nice one with Spike Jonze.
