  • Thanks, @tobiasreber The epic fail of 1965 Cage/Bernstein event is all I ever read about. I'd like more on the event itself. @geetadayal #
  • [email protected] Like to know more about 50-channel mixer Matthews made for the 1965 Bernstein/NYPhil production of Cage's Atlas Eclipticalis. #
  • RT @soundscrapers Reviewing a set of mechanical drawings today, i came across something called an elbow silencer. #
  • Loving the word "co-belligerent" on WWII memorial in Golden Gate Park. #
  • Fresh from a visit to the Academy of Sciences, where the intense HVAC gives voice to all the resident sea creatures. #
  • This is the "before" of the One AM Radio track remixed by Prefuse 73: #
  • Foghorn sounds like Odin set his cellphone on vibrate. #
  • Free Prefuse 73 remix of One AM Radio via @rcrdlbl I don't hear the #folk tag but he crunches their dreampop splendidly #
  • Sounds after midnight: light electronic buzz, night bus, car running stop sign, TV creaking as it cools. #
  • Nice when you start a new blog, and the first comment is helpful, informative, snarkless. #ipad #writing #postpc #
  • Charles Ives per chance: Field recording of two school bands practicing simultaneously, by @markrushtoncom #
  • Reminder, if you do the #facebook there's a page for that: #
  • WonderCon's in San Francisco this weekend. I won't make it, but do track down Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca's E.A. Poe lit-remix project. #
  • Excellent stuff at CCRMA/Stanford this Sat, April 2: Trimpin, Wobbly, Sutekh, more. Wish I could make it. #
  • #madcomposer RT @DJ_Moderne When I saw AMC was trending I thought it was because of the American Music Center/Meet the Composer merger LOL! #
  • Noon test alarm in San Francisco, right on schedule, the post-siren voice like a neighbor ordering lunch delivery. #
  • May the cloud-storage price wars now begin! #
  • So, the deal with Amazon Cloud Player is we get an extra 15gb if we buy one album. But in a year we'll need to pay for that space, right? #
  • "This event has been reviewed by a seismologist." #
  • Gonna be much politician-style backpeddling re: the "you're outta luck" Apple/AmazonCloud coverage, but if a song streams, it streams. #
  • How to play MP3s on iPad from Amazon Cloud Player: click box next to song, select "download," say "no" to manager. Browser streams song. #
  • Now streaming a song from Amazon's Cloud Player to my iPad. Why have so many articles I've read this morning said this isn't possible? #
  • RT @Chris_Randall I mentally replace "cloud" with "FTP site with a snazzy front end, and a strict limit on file types." #
  • It's unfortunate how @goodreads lists graphic novels solely by the writer. #
  • A night bus passes, its rattle heard several blocks in advance of its passing, and it moves as quickly as it is empty. #
  • Listened to the instrumental of Common's "Cold Blooded" on repeat for an hour straight again today. #
  • Outside is like the @newyorker back page, each lyric fragment of each passing car radio striving to caption the insanely beautiful afternoon #
  • Me: "Anything sound-art-ish going on in Las Vegas currently?" @compactrobot: "Have you ever heard a casino?" #
  • Anything sound-art-ish going on in Las Vegas currently? #
  • Much more interested in moiré patterns than in diptychs. #
  • Thanks to iPad-using novelist @Richard_Kadrey for his guest entry on my fledgling blog: #
  • Can you "write" on an iPad? There's a blog for that: #
  • Listened to instrumental of Common's "Cold Blooded" on repeat for last hour. #
  • Morning sounds: baby yawns, birds out front, fluorescent bulb drone, hard drive (TiVo), car. #
  • "@ntabebe Holding roll of noiseless packing tape. I cannot be alone in thinking the noise is most satisfying part of packing tape." #eartwit #
  • The radio plays @cartalk as I tend to chores around the house. The show is an encyclopedia of emotionally fraught automotive onomatopoeia. #
