But Does it Float

Neatly self described as an “ongoing visual

conversation between Folkert Gorter, Atley G. Kasky, and Will Schofield taking place inside a browser window,” this blog contains a wealth of material drawn from a very wide range of disciplines. The beauty of this blog is the level of discernment used by all three curators. Extremely informative and eye opening all at the same time, this blog is essential viewing if you wish to gain an insight into new art being produced around the globe.

While primarily a music label, Erased Tapes’ videos walk an amazing line between referencing the music and creating their own worlds in reference to it. In this video celebrating the labels five year anniversary one of the collaborators explains that no matter what each individual’s background is, “it’s all instruments”. This sums up the ethos of the project but also provides an interesting allegory for the roles of art and music working together. By creating such an aesthetic world to accompany this beautiful music the artists and musicians are all working together, no matter what the disciple it’s all just instruments.
