Musical Notes:

“Kinetics”  is a song by DJ Krush from his album, Kakusei.  This song features Sinista from the X-ecutioners, group of turntablists from New York.

From last.fm:  “DJ Krush (Hideaki Ishii) was born in 1962 in Tokyo. At an early age, Ishii dropped out of school, and joined a local gang, and a few years later, Yakuza (the Japanese mafia).   After watching the film ‘Wild Style’ in the early ’80s, he was inspired, bought some turntables, and started to learn the art of turntablism. In 1987, he formed the KRUSH POSSE which made numerous appearances as a group in late 1992 and gained him recognition by becoming the first DJ in Japan to perform with live musicians.”

Here’s the track:

“The Rollercoaster Ride” is a song by the Scottish indie pop band, Belle and Sebastian.  Led by Stuart Murdoch, Belle and Sebastian are known for their folksy 60’s pop sound mixed with odd, sometimes disturbing lyrics.

Here’s the track:

    Hey Tiff! Its Gracelyn. I had a question about The Kinetics. I couldn’t find anything about how kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy. I looked in the packet several times and couldn’t find it and neither could my brother. If you could help that would be great. Thanks!
