  • Untitled by Larry Carlson Digital chromogenic print 2007 

This is yet another fantastic piece by “Computer Guru”, Larry Carlson. It’s a very colorful and trippy work. There are rainbow vortexes and for some strange reason, a duck. It almost reminds me of an optical illusion, and my god, it’s glorious! Tell me what you think of the piece in the comments’ section below.

  • The Birds That Hide From Man by Larry Carlson collage on paper 2012

This is a very strange collage by “Master Surrealist”, Larry Carlson. We see a strange man with a bird’s nest for a head. He also has some prehistoric lizards surround his torso. I love Carlson’s blend of Realism and Surrealism. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

  • The Fourth Plate of Muscles by Andreas Vesalius of Brussels 1543 Black and White piece: This work is an extremely old drawing of the human body. The muscles are exposed, and he stands tall like a giant. During the time this painting was made, it was considered to be a major part of Western science. The human body reminds me of a Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan. The grotesque figure and heavily detailed body both shocks and allures the viewer.

Asher’s Jukebox Part 147

Cirrus by Bonobo from the album “The North Boarders” 2013 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for an incredibly ambient Electronic piece? I sure hope so! This piece is very beautiful, and you can easily fall asleep to the mesmerizing beat. It starts with a unique chime, and then the other instruments start to play. The song is best played with your eyes closed, so that the ambience will take over. Plus, the music video is created by one of my favorite animators, Cryiak Harris. I’d love to hear what you guys think about this piece, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

Happy Listening 😀

Asher’s Jukebox Part 80

Deep Blue Sea (aka Deep Blue Day) by Brian Eno from the album “Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks” 1983 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for one of the most calming pieces of music ever created? Well if you are, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Let me start off by saying that this track is older than I am!  Despite this fact, it’s an incredibly unique and beautiful piece of music. The artist, Brian Eno, specializes in this ambient style of music. The song starts out with an incredibly peaceful sounding synthesizer that continues to play throughout the piece. Then, the song transforms into a sleep-inducing ambience that you’ll remember forever! I absolutely adore this piece of musical genius! Tell me what you think in the comments section below.

Happy Listening 😀
