Listening to art. Playing with audio. Sounding out technology. Composing in code. Rewinding the soundscape.

Past Week at

  • Doing lawn work in backyard. Flashback thought: "After these chores, I can go to my friend's house and play Steve Jackson's Melee & Wizard." #
  • Back from gym, where yet again I found myself listening (on Android phone) to two things at once: consonant, interesting, believable as one. #
  • Pretty much done with our dissection of Dave Hickey's book The Invisible Dragon at Conversation better than the book. #
  • Foghorns out of control in San Francisco Richmond District today. Need to get good mic to record them, to play on dreadfully sunny days. #
  • What music without Michael Jackson sounds like: memorial playlist of MJ & (Jackson 5) instrumentals, lacking his vocals: #
  • If you Twitter it's #followfriday: metal/breakcore monster @drumc0rps & sound artist @kabircarter & sound designer/musician @hugoverweij #
  • Listening to various Michael Jackson instrumentals, in light of his reported death today. None of them sound particularly good without him. #
  • Excellent music-making news for Nintendo DSi: an expanded Korg DS-10 cartridge is coming its way — RT @Nobuooo #
  • Afternoon sounds: electronic whine, engorged photocopier/printer, patterns of overlapping typing, murmur below, radios inside and outdoors. #
  • A bunch of us are discussing Dave Hickey's book The Invisible Dragon over at Feel free to join in. (Hickey has.) #
  • Quite likely I am addicted to habanero. I start salivating at the word. Goes well with cold beer. And Madlib, Royce da 5'9", & Prefuse 73. #
  • Morning sounds: typing, refrigerator whir, laptop fan, and the more frequent occurrence of buses during the commute window. #
  • After 13 years of constant use my Dell Quiet Key keyboard is being retired. There's no repairing it. Words don't fail me, but characters do. #
  • For all my love of movie scores, there are days when I wonder if, even at their most subtle, they're not much different from laugh tracks. #
  • Thousandth Twitter post / Haiku of the Internet / Data ricochets #
  • 20 years ago today near dawn, I stood — with buddy Andrew Jaffe, aka @defjaf — in Manhattan's Battery Park taking in Sun Ra & Don Cherry. #
  • Wind's been so strong today, it hadn't even occurred to me until now to put on any music. #
