Tasked with the transformation of a city block next to Uppsala’s central square, the architects created an inviting complex of timber apartments surrounding a communal courtyard. Designed to foster a sense of community among residents, the Rosendal complex is, as the project’s architects state, “full of character and unlike anything else.”The apartments, which are housed in two separate buildings on the site, offer multi-family housing in multiple scales. Based on the idea of being an “able and variable neighborhood,” the complex will also boast features such as a rooftop greenhouse, and a joinery workshop located in the park-like central courtyard. These amenities are meant to provide common spaces for tenants to meet and form friendships, creating “a welcoming context facilitating for good ‘neighborliness.’”Save this picture!Courtyard Interior.

Using timber construction not only creates a homey, residential feel for the buildings, it also ensures a smaller ecological footprint during and after construction. The apartments will be built using passive-house methodology, and will incorporate rainwater treatment via a green roof, and the complex’s courtyard. This rainwater may be used to cultivate the many apple trees and berry bushes planted on the site. Minimizing parking spaces on site will be used to encourage pedestrian and cycling traffic among residents.CompetitionLand Transfer CompetitionAwardFirst PlaceProject NameWoodhouse RosendalArchitectsKjellander SjöbergLocationUppsala, SwedenPrincipalStefan SjöbergDesign TeamFredrik Pettersson, Alessandro Macaluso, Lars Almgren, Joel YngvessonClientDiligentiaLandscape ArchitectsURBIOEnergy ConsultantsAton teknik & KonsultTimber ConsultantsRENEWINN ABArea10500.0 sqmProject Year2014PhotographsCourtesy of Kjellander + SjöbergCompetitionLand Transfer CompetitionAwardFirst PlaceProject NameWoodhouse RosendalLocationUppsala, SwedenProject Year2014PhotographsCourtesy of Kjellander SjobergArea10500.0 m2Image gallerySee allShow lessABDM and RAU Win Competition to Design College Campus in KortrijkArchitecture NewsCdV House / DDA Despacho de ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Uppsala, SwedenLocation to be used only as a reference.

EXCLUSIVE: Random Rab Takes Listeners All the Way To The “Formless Edge” On New Album

first_imgA luminary of the West Coast’s psychedelic-bass music diaspora, Random Rab rises to occasion with Formless Edge, his eleventh full-length solo opus released Friday, June 16. As a headliner at festivals around the world, Rab has become more than just a DJ or producer, evolving into an ephemeral wizard whose legendary sunrise/sunset adventures have become festival culture rites of passage. Formless Edge is a journey through life, with 15 songs that unveil an ever-evolving kaleidoscope of styles, each embedded with his idiosyncratic codings and vintage visceral vibration. Amid the minimalist programming and trademark electro Rab flourishes on Formless Edge, one will hear the fruits of Rab’s laborious, inventive experimentalism, merging the organic and the electronic. He incorporates over 30 unique instruments and features collaborations with Lapa, Rigzin, Kyrstyn Pixton, Jason Kalidas, and Peia.  Live For Live Music‘s B.Getz has written extensively about Random Rab for some years, and was fortunate enough to run down the mercurial “sommelier of sacred” for a comprehensive Q&A. The man born Rab Clinton was kind enough to open the doors and take us inside his heart, mind, soul and memory in sharing the creative and recording processes on his new album Formless Edge.Live For Live Music: Hey Rab! What an honor to get a few moments with you. L4LM is grateful for your time. I am thrilled to be among the first to discuss with you Formless Edge. Got the album only a couple days ago. Can we start from the top? First single and album opener “Give Me That Hope” starts the journey. What can you tell us about that composition?Random Rab: I got a bunch of these little Volcas [synths] as presents on my birthday, and I just set up all my hardware, [“Give Me That Hope”] is a live hardware track. For me it was right in the depth of the current political climate right now. So in a way, it was sort of my response to all of the pain and suffering happening right now, and a song for the confusion. That is the basic concept behind ‘Give Me That Hope.’ Also, the album itself, conceptually, is a journey–from hope to birth to life to magic and then to death. A journey through life itself, sort of. The first song is the birth…of a life.PREVIEW RANDOM RAB’S NEW ALBUM FORMLESS EDGE HEREL4LM: Rad, Right on. Let’s talk a little bit about how you conceptually got there. The “birth” of this record. What prompted you to make this record at this time?Rab: Well, I usually try not to be too literally political, I think that would be the way to say that [laughs]. I try to make stuff that is more timeless, and isn’t really directly associated with any current events. However, with this last, you know, several months, it’s hard to turn away from it. It’s hard to ignore what’s happening around us, so I felt like it was important to bring people into it with this album. The first several songs, the idea was more of a lighter, uplifting positive feeling. And then it evolves, more and more dark. That was the idea, using the album as a tool to access something within us. There’s just so much darkness around us right now, I don’t want to just jump right into the album, and just have another way to get dark, I guess. The idea was to use the album as a tool to be free.L4LM: Speaking on that theme a little bit: The song “A Little More Free,” is that more of an inward look within yourself? Self-empowerment? I don’t know if that’s where it came from, but that was what I mined from the very first listen. It’s an accessible song for people, more of a pop tune with lyrics. I can see this even reaching a wider audience.Rab: I don’t really approach music as in me making something intentionally accessible. In a way, I was dealing with some personal stuff, getting through a really difficult time in my life, so I guess that’s true actually, there’s sort of a personal message in there. That was also the closest I got to getting somewhat political. I chose the lyrics “the walls that bridge humanity” as opposed to “the walls that divide humanity,” because I think that’s a common theme lately. But yeah, I mean, that was a time when I was really getting back into myself, I was dealing with some dark personal stuff inside, and that song was a way for me to get free. Once again, it’s creating a tool for release, rather than an overarching concept. I don’t really think of stuff as whether it’s accessible or not, just what the song needs. And that is what it seemed the song needed. It needed to feel like that.Photo- Carlton WardL4LM: Wow, Rab. Damn. I appreciate you sharing such a personal accounting of that personal space and place where you were inspired to make that song. My initial impression, having listened, loved, internalized so much of the wonderful music you have made, was that “A Little More Free” felt very personal–something about the alchemy of the textures and your directness in singing it.You mentioned earlier about starting with positive brightness, lightness, to combat the darkness all around definitely an apt description of this album’s emotional story arch. As a listener, it seems like the bridge for that journey is “Outpost Aurora,” and you arrive in that introspective darkness with “Parallels” and, of course, “Redacter.” Would you please bring us a little bit inside of those tunes?Rab:  “Outpost Aurora” was the most recent one, cool because it’s just one of those songs I made in one night. I’ve been getting more and more into setting up all my hardware, just pressing record and doing it all in one take. So I have been super stoked working with analog gear, and “Outpost Aurora” is all analog hardware.“Parallels” is one I did with Ilya Goldberg (Emancipator), he’s LAPA. We called it “Parallels” because he came down to my studio here in Ashland (OR) and set up an entirely separate studio in my studio room. Basically, he has his own monitors, his own set up completely and then we both did Ableton Live links, where we linked up together and I could hear him, and he could hear me. We didn’t talk, and we just wrote the song and we fucking jammed it! But instead of a typical jam situation with guitar and bass, we had two complete studios. We just kept looping the intro for 15 or so, we would love it and keep adding layers and taking them away with out talking to each other about it, so it was like a parallel journey.It was a really unique way to make a song. I had never done that before, so I hope to do a lot more music like that. It’s like bringing back the live jam! You can relate to that, B. One thing I’m really missing in electronic music is the jam, so now I’m going to be able to actually jam with people. Ilya and I, we did it, and it was definitely a great musical experience.LISTEN TO A SOUNDBOARD FROM RANDOM RAB’S SURPRISE SUNRISE SET FROM ARISE 2016 HEREL4LM: On the music nerd tip, was I hearing an actual trap-drum set, live, on those sweet fills? What is that guitar-ish stringed instrument so prominently featured?Rab: Yeah we just brought all the instruments we could to the table. All we had, we brought [laughs]. So violin, guitar , an oud, so much. we just went through and sampled things, and did a lil of the jam thing. We’d just be like ‘okay ‘shut up and record!’ [laughs] ‘Now, my turn!’ We just had an array of as many instruments as possible, cannot remember all the ones we used on that one off the top of my head. “Parallels” has the most variety of fantastic pieces of equipment and recording techniques.L4LM: Tell us more about piano and brushes on “Thunder Shadow?” This tune has such a classic Random Rab feel, forboding, hopeful, ethereal… yet the textures are new, refreshing.Rab: I used to work at Obscura Digital in San Fran way back in the day. It used to be in a different location, in SOMA in SF, and I had my studio in there, and it was this awesome creative playground. So there was this basement–B, it’s the same basement I shot the video for “The Riddle” in years ago. There was a piano in that basement so we went down and recorded this on that same piano in the video.A little side story, really interesting is my friend Nick was playing that piano, and its in that crazy, echo-y room, and when we were finished I forgot to turn my recorder off, and I ended up recording like 16 hours of my life after that! When I went to download the file I’m like “what the heck?! It’s 16 hours long?’ It was in my pocket, you know, recorded all my conversations–a fight with my ex, all recorded! I looked into it, like a weird reality show of my on life, spying on myself without even knowing. I had held onto the recording for years, and then finally I pulled it out and was like ‘It’s this song!’L4LM: “Thunder Shadow” is such a definitive juxtaposition coming off of “Parallels” too. So “Redacter,” I might get misty eyed here [laughs]. This song takes me back to so many glorious live experiences with you, and even some of the darker times in my life that I’ve spoken with you about, too. So naturally I was pleasantly and emotionally surprised to hear this haunting soundtrack to so many musical and spiritual journeys show up on Formless Edge. So first off, thank you! The emotive, juicy, subtle primordial glitch–such a Rab fabric, a crystallized essence of your older sound. I’m curious as to why you chose to release that song on this record. It’s just old school. The only familiar song to my ears.Rab: Totally, I actually had the exact same thought, in a way. I guess we just never ever officially released it. I just had it all this time. ‘Redacter’ was just one of those things where we kept saying ‘we need to work on ‘Redacter,’ we need to work on ‘Redacter.’ So I kind of just finished it up, and I didn’t recognize that we had not ever released it, and I wanted to sort of put a jewel on there, something that was a call back to my older sound. Something familiar for people, so that was the reason I thought it was ok to release an older track like that. You know, in case anyone is weirded out by my new songs, there’s one song for them! [chuckles].L4LM: Yeah, I think there’s another bridge there, because “Parallels” and “Redacter” kind of come from that former space and place, yet remain relevant now. Modern flourishes on top of the classic, if you will…Rab: I feel like sometimes songs age like wine, basically. Their time comes at some point and maybe it’s not when you wrote it, but years later.L4LM: Great point, brother. How about “Water Chandelier”? It sounds totally different than anything else we talked about. Real technological stuff going there. Elaborate on that, if you would please.Rab: “Water Chandelier.” I’ve sort of been working on this reality artifact series. The “Water Chandelier” video will be a part of it. A music video where its all super analog, home grown. I wrote that one right around the time that the Dakota Access Pipeline was happening. So this comes from a “Water is Life” place, or thing, that’s really important to me. I went and shot a bunch of footage of beautiful water for my reality artifact series around here in Ashland. This incredible rock that this water was streaming on, it created this sort of amazing water chandelier. That’s what it looked like…this endless, forever-changing, flowing water. So I wrote that song kind of based upon that visual thing first, which is usually the other way around. But for that one I wrote it to kind of accompany the flow of water.L4LM: A song to accompany the flow of water. Water is life. Give thanks for water! We got you.Another song out of the sonic wheelhouse of what I’ve sort of come to expect from you is “Heavenly Light.” Something I thought was that it sounded like if you had a live folk band, and were making a sort of gospel music, you know, songs of the great spirit…whatever you want to call the Creator. I’m curious about the intention on “Heavenly Light” and also the celestial sound, how you executed it. The Random Rab folk band! (laughs).Rab: You know, B, in a way that’s kind of what it is!  Because I have a secret online persona I use to release random acoustic music on. I don’t really tell people about it. I just kind of put it out, and let it be. When I first released that song, I released it under that moniker. Folk band, yeah. I was imagining myself being accompanied by a band, and a song that sounded like what you said. You know, what would it sound like if it was live? It just seemed appropriate for that song. I wanted the lyrics to come through, I didn’t want it to sound too electronic. I wanted it to feel live. You know there are some obvious electronic elements to it too, but still that feeling where it was old in a way.L4LM: I really dug that tune. The textures again, so rich, so lush, yet understated, beautiful. Great touch.I wanted to ask about the final song “Repose” with the vocalist Peia? Are those her lyrics, her poetry? Give us a little background of that song and where it came from please.Rab: We wrote that song. I had been working on it for a while, and I brought in Ilya on mandolin and violin right around the time of anniversary the passing of a friend of mine. I remember she came into the studio and we really got to talking about it and the story really impacted her [even though] she didn’t know my friend who had passed. And she went and just created those lyrics kind of based on that theme. Yeah, its kind of an homage to a friend who passed away, through her lens.L4LM: One of the themes coming through Formless Edge is the intention to marry the electronic flourishes and organic instrumentation, but not in a way where it sounds mashed up or forced; a homogenous blend, gelling smooth. It’s been attempted quite a bit through the years. It’s hard to do but on this record I think you’ve achieved it, with kind of the less is more approach.Rab:  I’ve been really trying to approach my electronic sound as opposed to kind of computer-generated sequencing, to treat technology like instruments and to, for instance, if I end up creating something of the digital realm, to pull it out to analog somehow. Bring it back in so its actually an analog recording. So that was, from a technique standpoint, one of the big goals I had with this Formless Edge.The idea was to really focus on analog frequencies, even if they started digital, and to find a way to really bring up the resolution. And that was the approach of this album, to really focus on fidelity, and focus on a way to make more frequencies mesh better than techniques I’ve used in the past. Also using outboard gear as much as possible, analog synths, drum machines and what not. I felt like when I approach it like that, it becomes like a live instrument, becomes so much easier to bring in another live instrument with it, because its analog itself. The frequencies have a more harmonic sound, at least to my ear, so that was kind of the approach with this one.L4LM: Wow. Amazing stuff. What a wonderful view into the mind of a wizard.Rab, given my personal path in life, and the role that your music has played in soundtracking it, along with the thousands of others whose lives you have touched in your own special way, it is an honor and a privilege to speak with you about your art. So much gratitude. I’ll be spinning Formless Edge this summer, and will see you in August, in your home state of Oregon, when you score the eclipse.Rab: This was great. Thanks brotha!Symbiosis 2013.

Ronaldo expects English challenge

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo expects English clubs to challenge for European glory this season – but still believes Real Madrid will end up making Champions League history.Ronaldo was back in the goal-scoring groove on Tuesday night after an injury-hit World Cup for Portugal, scoring twice in the 2-0 Super Cup victory over Spanish rivals Sevilla in Cardiff.The reigning world player of the year was named the official man of the match by his former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and seems set for another trophy-laden campaign.”Madrid are going to be the first team,” Ronaldo replied when asked if Real could make Champions League history by retaining the title.”I hope so. Maybe we have the potential to be the best but I believe the players that Real Madrid have bought this season – James (Rodriguez), (Toni) Kroos and (Keylor) Navas – are going to give more support to the team and more quality.”I’m very happy with the quality that we have in the squad, so it’s fantastic and we are going to try and win all the trophies.” England’s Champions League challenge will be spearheaded by Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea while Arsenal will be aiming to overcome Besiktas, of Turkey, in the play-off round to join them in the group stages.”English teams are always there, they are always strong teams,” Ronaldo said.”Let’s see when the league starts and they buy the new players. We have to see what is going to happen.”For us, it’s good to win this trophy to give confidence to the team.”It means a lot. It was a very important trophy and we start on the right foot. “We played good, we played better than Sevilla, and I scored two goals coming back from my injury.”So it was a perfect night for me and I feel very pleased about that. My team-mates help me a lot to score the goals so it was a fantastic night.”Ronaldo paid special tribute to his fellow forward Gareth Bale, the Wales international setting up the first goal with a wonderful cross on the half-hour mark.”Bale was fantastic, he played amazing,” Ronaldo said.”He looks strong, he looks fast and is a very important player for us. “He had a fantastic season last year so it doesn’t surprise me the way he plays.”He showed his quality week by week and it’s great to have Gareth with us and be part of the success of Real Madrid.”I’m very glad to play with him to because he understands me and I understand him. He does fantastic passes and I love it.”Bale, the world’s most expensive player following his £86million move from Tottenham a year ago, is now fully settled at the club and expects Real to be a major force again this season.”When I came to Madrid I wanted to settle down off the pitch as soon as possible because I knew if I could concentrate on my football I knew what I was capable of,” Bale said. “I know everybody in the squad now. I feel comfortable and the second season you’re obviously feeling a lot better.”You miss some things about home, but I’m thoroughly enjoying it in Madrid and looking forward to the season.”In sport anything can happen but hopefully we’ll be strong again. We feel confident and will be trying our hardest to win every trophy.”last_img read more
