Photos from Gomez’ gig at Southampton university on my flickr site. Admittedly taken with the Samsung Soul mobile, which to be frank isn’t that great for this sort of thing.

I cam across an amzing site, that has combined video clips from science documentaries such as Carl Sagans’ stunning Cosmos with music, with the video samples having their images and audio very cleverly massaged to meet the tempo of the music. The clips are such that the science still makes sense ….
