Vivian Hua (華婷婷) is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine as well as a master of globetrotting for free and evading 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Marshmallows – while not really food – are one of her favorite foods, especially if they are freezered, stale, or fire-toasted. She doesn’t want to space travel, really, which is an unpopular view these days. Her design work, astrological chart, and other crap can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net.

Lapalux – When You’re Gone Album Review

Stuart Howard, or better known as Essex’s Lapalux, has been refining and experimenting with electronic music for quite some time now, and he’s no stranger to diverse and fringe technological music — which is both a blessing and a curse on When You’re Gone.

High Places – The Pull Music Video

Hi-definition and hi-contrast color mix with black and white graininess in this new video for High Places’ “The Pull.” Examining naturalistic settings with the help of unnatural manmade light, the video, like the song, is at once romantic and unsettling. One is unsure of whether the florals are symbolic of sexuality or are merely just...Read...
