Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Video on Sunday 11 May 2014

Ok, so this is the heartwarming story of the year. Irish couple Ronan and Emma Lally couldn’t find their pet ducklings one day and went into a panic fearing that they had become, erm, breakfast for their beloved cat, Della. But it turned out that poor Della had been wrongly accused.

This ‘Pantone Colour’ book was created 271 years before ‘Pantone’ was even a word

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 7 May 2014

Created in 1692, this book by unheralded artist A. Boogert featured beautiful watercolours and theories around how best to mix them. As our friends at This Is Colossal have noted, the 800 page book, entitled Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau, ‘was probably the most comprehensive guide to paint and colour of […]

This extraordinary photo shows a random splash of seawater, magnified 25 times

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Photography on Thursday 1 May 2014

It would be fair to say that we have a thing for magnified photos on Lost At E Minor. And can you blame us? Who knew that a single grain of sand could look so vibrant under an intense lens, or that dust could harbour so many colourful elements? This incredible photo shows what you […]

Ever wondered what a balloon looks like when it pops in super slow motion?

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Wednesday 30 April 2014

This is so compelling we’ve spent three-quarters of the day watching it over, and over, and over again. That’s right, who would’ve thought that the simple act of blowing up a balloon with too much, erm, hot air, could lead to such visually powerful imagery. But it did, and here’s the proof. Fun, huh? [Watch […]

NOW+ 4EVA: majestic pop from Architecture in Helsinki

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Monday 31 March 2014

I can’t believe it’s been 14 years since Aussie music legends (and I don’t use that term lightly), Architecture in Helsinki, first graced the stages of inner-city Melbourne and Sydney. I was playing in bands myself back then, keeping one eye on my ever-growing Marshall stack and the other on the local band scene. And while I’ve long since moved behind the keypad and left my guitar to gather dust, these guys keep going. And going. And going. Phew!

The Ovolo Hotel, Melbourne

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Travel on Thursday 12 December 2013

You really couldn’t get a better location to explore Melbourne from than Little Bourke street. Unlike many big cities, the Melbourne CBD is actually a fun, bustling environment with plenty of bars, restaurants and boutique stores to keep you – and your wallet – busy. The Ovolo, a Mr and Mrs Smith Hotel, is right in the heart of it all, within easy walking distance to the trams (Melbourne’s gateway to everything cool) and just a stone’s throw (literally) from the constant energy of Chinatown.

Scenes from the Lost At E Minor Sydney party

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Events on Monday 2 December 2013

We threw a Lost At E Minor party in the old Chocolate Factory in Haymarket, Sydney, on October 10 for no other reason than it just felt like the right time to do it. The star of the party was local artist James Jirat Patradoon, who decorated the interior of the venue with his brilliant […]

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in Cool Travel on Thursday 17 October 2013

I had the recent pleasure of staying at the beautiful Standard Hotel in downtown Manhattan and be immersed at the same time in the ever-changing cultural and culinary scene that envelopes the East Village of New York. The building is 21 stories high, with 145 rooms, most of which have floor to ceiling windows and […]

The Cake Wines Archi-Bottle Prize

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Design on Tuesday 15 October 2013

Our friends at Cake Wines have done it again, creating a buzz in both the art and wine worlds with their annual Archi-bottle Prize. The idea is simple: unearth the most talented emerging Australian artist and give them a Cake Wines label as a canvas. This year they received 350 entries, which are slowly being leaked online by Cake, including one by perennial Lost At E Minor favourite and Archibald Prize entrant, Del Kathryn Barton, who produced a typically colourful piece that would look stunning as the label on the bottle.

Banksy announces a month long takeover of the walls of New York

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Art on Wednesday 2 October 2013

That mysterious dark lord of the street art world, Banksy, has struck again, in his typically cryptic, enigmatic way. He’s been expertly fueling the flames of innuendo via his website of late, posting new work in LA and New York and alluding to a possible uninvited (but much appreciated) takeover of the walls of Manhattan with the accompanying statement: ‘Better Out Than In. An artists residency on the streets of New York.’ Ah huh.

MY SECRET PLAYLIST by Kelpe

Zolton Editor

By Zolton in New Music on Thursday 1 August 2013

With influences ranging from the bleeps and bass of classic Warp artists to the spectral folk of John Renbourn, and the minimalism of Steve Reich to the percussive space-scapes of Do Make Say Think, the diversity of the music that inspires Kelpe finds reflection in his own sonic adventures, informing his ever evolving sound, combining […]
