1) Symphony of Science
John D. Boswell has taken bits from science shows and strung them into kinda amazing new age-ish electronic songs. Auto-tuned Bill Nye? Yes.
What started out as an awesome one-off project has grown into 15 songs/videos. A vinyl release from Jack White, a free compilation album, and also to #2.
2) PBS Digital Studios
PBS has launched a new digital experiment. Collaborating with Boswell they have made the above video. From their press release:
When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a uge Mister Rogers Neighborhood fan, ans was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes.
Best of all, this is the first in a series.
