I'm sitting here working at home, listening to Seattle's KEXP via the Internet Radio feature in iTunes 12.6 on Windows. I really like the Mini Player view. And I really like album art. I use albumartexchange.com to seek out high res art for all my albums so they look great on the Apple TV. Here is my question - why does iTunes not have album art for Internet Radio streams? I can't stand staring at the default iTunes music note logo in iTunes and on the Apple TV when I'm listening to streams. I came across this article that suggests, back in 2013 Apple was interested in adding radio logos for some service or another. http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/08/05/apple-asks-internet-radio-stations-for-itunes-radio-cover-art But as far as I can tell, nothing has come of it. This thread on the Apple boards suggests adding a dummy MP3, with the art, to iTunes and making an album out of the MP3 and the radio stream. It kind of works. But the art still does not show up in the main iTunes "now playing bar", the mini player, ATV or the iTunes Remote App. (The iTunes Remote App is something that desperately needs help too... https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2681827?tstart=0 Artwork, in general, has taken a real hit in recent iTunes versions. The Artist picture issue is simply awful. Does anyone have any insight into why Apple does not have art for Internet Radio streams? Or any tricks to help? Thanks! -- Bryan
sphinxsix posted a topic in General ForumEver wondered who's the guy responsible for this cover photo and how it was created? The answer is - German photographer Martin Klimas. He is known for his work surrounding high speed photography to capture moments otherwise invisible to the human eye. His project, Sonic Sculptures, enables the viewer to visualize the impact of sound as streams of colorful paint are thrown upward by sound waves from a speaker. After splashing paint on stretched canvas suspended over a speaker, Klimas turns the music up to full volume. As the vibrations from the speaker to throw the paint upwards, the resulting intricate patterns are captured in his high-speed photographs. While each individual photograph is quite interesting, the project becomes truly fascinating when the photographs are compared and the differences in pattern between songs are revealed. Some examples: "Pharaoh's Dance" Miles Davis "On the Run" Pink Floyd "Run Run Run" The Velvet Underground and Nico "Ride of the Valkyries" Richard Wagner "Sex Machine" James Brown "Carmina Burana" Carl Orff "Ascension" John Coltrane In his other project 'Soundworks' Klimas transforms the waves of sound, curious to discover what music would look like if visually manifest again. Assisted by several musicians, Sound Explosions was created partially through short original musical sequences using synthesizers. The work is a series of diptychs allowing the viewer to see the wires, cables, and dials that create these colorful symphonies : (the guy must like audio cables ) You can listen to the musical sequences used in the work as well as a behind the scenes video on Kilmas’ Vimeo channel. As a person interested both in visual art and music I find his work quite intriguing. What do you think, guys? Martin Klimas' site: http://www.martin-klimas.de/en/index.html
