  Since a few months we can see growing Bike Parks outside the ski resorts (lately the Coast Gravity Park) and I love it.

In a Society where you can… [Read on]

Hauschka: “Elizabeth Bay” – Temporary Residence

For a while now, deconstructionist auteur Hauschka has taken an off-center approach to his use of piano, heading in a distinctly dance-focused direction in recent years. On March 17, Temporary Residence (City Slang in Europe) will release Abandoned City, the follow-up to Hauschka’s collab with violinist Hilary Hahn, last year’s Silfra, and the first Hauschka solo LP since 2011′s intriguing Salon des Amateurs. According to a press release, this unsettling first single, “Elizabeth Bay”, draws from a piece of… [Read on]

Fall is here. There is no bike season for me: where I live I can ride 365 days every year, but if I have to choose my favorite period of the year for Mountain Biking, I will choose Fall for sure.
