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

Past Week at

  • Chopin and Liszt, imagined as a newspaper comic strip: by @beatonna #
  • "@tobiasreber setting up a little generative system that will play quiet background music during dinner with friends." #futureofentertaining #
  • Pretty much only interesting thing about Limitless is it apes Google Street View instead of, like other movies, Google Earth. #
  • Yes, that was a mouse in the cafe. #
  • Cannot get out of my head the swollen eyes of a person I saw at the Apple Store this week, clearly praying for rejuvenation of a hard drive. #
  • Afternoon sounds at the library: neighbors' magazine pages piercing the drones and beats in my headphones. #
  • Matt Ridley statement from Long Now session that has stuck with me the most: trade is 10 times as old as agriculture. #
  • Funniest sentence at Matt Ridley session this past week at Long Now, from Stewart Brand: "Kevin Kelly just brought up his own question." #
  • True gadget intimacy means knowing by heart where its headphone jack is located. #
  • “@pauladaunt: Depeche Mode’s original lineup reunite for remix LP” [Nice to see Monolake among the contributors.] #
  • RT @NoFrisco @disquiet True but the native's aversion to this word is visceral and completely illogical, so probably can't be reasoned away. #
  • Early evening of netlabel listening before heading out to @theunobserved festivities. (630 Treat Ave. in San Francisco, if you're around.) #
  • As always, wishing the consensual ban on "Frisco" would be lifted, since "San Francisco" takes up so much space and "SF" is confusing. #
  • Really enjoying the hyper-minimalist digital chamber music of my phone, desktop, and iPad signaling alerts slightly out of sync. #
  • [email protected] Really good. I'd watch Bill Irwin mime the phone book. #goodwife #
  • Mid-morning sounds: torrents, the wet kind, not the downloads. Fairly biblical outside. #
  • The new media grass is always RGBer. Murdoch/Fox makes an app, and Google makes a book. #
  • Griffin Dunne directs Bill Irwin and Alan Cumming. … Just business as usual, thanks to @goodwifewriters #
  • So, apparently Battles has become Jane's Addiction: #
  • Wondering about extent of correlation between diminishing complaints regarding Starbucks and company's introduction of free wifi. #
  • "The real metric of 'prosperity' is time." #longnow #
  • An usher just referred to tonight's @longnow lecture as "the performance." #transparency #
  • Headed to a Long Now talk. Been a while since I've attended one. #
  • Dear News Professionals: the Google Books (non) settlement is bigger news than the sports scores you regularly email me as "breaking." #
  • Figured how to view web page's source code in iPad, but can't seem to copy/paste. What to do? Take screenshot and send to @Evernote ICR? #
  • Few things go with @inceptiontheapp like a solo trumpet busker on a busy city street corner. #
  • Tuesday noon siren in San Francisco, mistaken for bus coming to very slow stop. #
  • Morning sounds: ice in coffee, refrigerator, bus, heater, sweater sleeves against dining room table. #
  • RT @bereninga: The tapping sounds of my keyboard is pretty neat through @inceptiontheapp #
  • RIP, jazz/soul guitarist Melvin Sparks (b. 1946). #
  • Used to get my news from Doonesbury. Now, from XKCD. #
  • Surfing the web without Flash can feel a bit like driving cross-country with a vegan. #
  • RT @cobra_mike In restaurant and my son asked us to "thumbs up" the song playing on the juke box. No understanding of a world before Pandora #
  • Anyone having issues with @bandcamp embedded player breaking @WordPress site on iPad in Safari (and Atomic Web Browser)? #
  • The irony of experimenting with using an iPad to update is that most of the MP3 embed code I use isn't HTML5-ish. #
  • [email protected] Yeah, and I entirely lack the vocabulary to describe my car sounds in car terms. Just netlabel noise-album terms. #
  • Car transmission issue developed so slowly over six months, it only became evident recently. Now fixed, car suddenly insanely quiet. #
