Robin Good's insight:
Here's a great curation story. Derek Vincent Smith also known musically as Pretty Lights has published a video album that is a curation masterpiece since its very inception. To create a uniquely personal sound and style Derek has brought to the recording studio tens of musicians to record and master 25 vinyls from which he would then sample, remix and curate the final tracks of his new album.
The videos of the tracks, (here is a short playlist I've created of some of the most representative ones) are equally impressive, as they have been produced by capturing imagery that would be otherwise be considered utterly useless and curated with graphic and visual effects of all kinds as to generate some truly visual masterpieces.
Check the story of the making of the video here: http://youtu.be/jOZtWO7P6-g
The results, in my humble view, are truly stunning.
