Video of the Week: Movement 2013

bit.ly/movment_2013

WITH electronic music riding a high point culturally, it is no surprise that one of the most respected festivals in North America, Movement, is enjoying brisk ticket sales in its 13th year of celebrating and promoting Detroit's connection to the creation of techno. Running along the Detroit River, which separates the Motor City from Windsor Ont.,, Hart Plaza's unique configuration of five stages gives audiences that intimate feel that is lacking at many of today's outdoor events, while still providing plenty of space for party-goers from around the world who descend on the city.

Some of the acts slated to play this year's festival, which runs May 25-27, include Canada's Aboriginal dubstep outfit A Tribe Called Red, veteran electronic icon Moby, critically acclaimed electro act Actress, former Windsor/Detroit resident Richie Hawtin, noise manipulator Squarepusher and a whole host of other performers from Detroit and around the world. Tickets are available at movement.us.

Anthony Bourdain on His Teaching Dreams, Vilifying Ronald McDonald and the Terror of Child Foodies

KNOWN best for his time on TV as a host of No Reservations and as a no-nonsense author whose insight into the stressful, fast-paced life of a line chef in New York, Kitchen Confidential, is required reading for anyone who follows modern food culture, Anthony Bourdain continues to broaden his brand. Along with recently co-hosting the cooking competition called The Taste, the pull-no-punches TV star has taken his travelling roadshow to CNN and is heading out on a cross-country tour with friend and celebrity chef Eric Ripert.

Along with these new challenges, Bourdain talks about how he approaches food with his daughter, how Ronald McDonald isn't very popular in his home and how foodies that are kids terrify him.

Stream of the Week: Imaginary Cities -- Bells of Cologne

bit.ly/bells_of_cologne

AFTER a busy couple years on the road supporting its debut, Temporary Resident -- which saw the band tour with the Pixies, play Lollapalooza, get nominated for a Polaris Award and win a Western Canada Music Award for Best Pop Album of the Year -- Imaginary Cities managed to settle down long enough to craft some songs for a followup, Fall of Romance.

But not all the songs that made the cut were penned during downtime; the original idea for the first single came while Rusty Matyas and Marti Sarbit were on the road. "Bells of Cologne was born on a day off in -- you guessed it -- Cologne, Germany," says Matyas. "I was having coffee and doing laundry at our friend Anna's place. While sitting on her rooftop patio in the sun, about a dozen churches bells erupted in a cacophony of deafening rings and dings. I whipped out my iPhone, as I often do, and recorded the sound. I promised Anna that when we arrived back in Canada we would turn it into a song, and the end product still includes the original recording of bells from that afternoon."

Imaginary Cities' sophomore album, Fall of Romance, hits stores May 28.
