Robert Norton, started Colorcalm just a few years ago with the idea of creating lively, artistic and beautiful programming for that often ugly piece of real estate that is known as the television. His first effort Colorcalm Skies came out over a year ago.
His newest DVD, by Design, is a much more interesting (and ambitious) project. It contains the work of three notable ambient designers (Peter Saville, John Maeda, Irma Bloom) who have created visuals for great music (New Order, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Michael Nyman). He asked us to review it, but the problem is, we don't have a big, flatscreen television and DVD player to watch it on. So we came up with the idea of asking six readers to review this new DVD and tell us what they think.
If you are a big television person, have a DVD player and would like to take Colorcalm by Design for a test drive and give us your feedback, we'll have one sent to you this week (feel free to hold onto it as well). Simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and put COLORCALM in the header AND include your name and address.
