Past Week at

  • Thanks to @SactownMagazine‘s new website my old interview with Pakistan-born rapper Bohemia is now online: #
  • Interviewed Morton Subotnik and Tommy Victor (of Prong) in the same afternoon. I love the 21st century. #
  • The Disquiet Junto instruction email last night went into some people’s spam folders. Project is here: #
  • What he said. RT @Chegreco 14e Junto du merveilleux Disquiet sera un bel « excercice de style » musical | Oulipo ¬ Oubapo ¬ Oumupo | #
  • #junto I love it. Bonus points for 99-second entries. RT @mmaddencomics none of this 2-7 minutes mollycoddling: It’s 99 seconds or nothing! #
  • The 14th Disquiet Junto is a sonic-narrative rendition of @mmaddencomics‘ 99 Ways to Tell a Story: #
  • 14th Disquiet Junto project instructions went out to email list. No translations right now (I was traveling), but we may have some shortly. #
  • Now: tunnel remix of aforementioned quasi-monophonic lofi surround sound version of public radio. With playful honking. #
  • Stuck in traffic. Public-radio broadcasts coming from multiple slow-moving vehicles. An automotive 40 Part Motet. #
  • The 14th weekly Disquiet Junto assignment goes out shortly. This week it’s “sonic narrative.” (Next week it’s “color theory.”) #
  • Dear @googl: It’d be excellent if a field could be added to allow for a line-item description of a given link. #
  • When is Reference Librarian Appreciation Day? #
  • Did graphic designer of CPR book consciously feed off anxiety of Barbara Kruger typography? #
  • RIP, the man synonymous with the amplifier, Jim Marshall (b. 1923) of Marshall Amps: #
  • At Apple Store person asked for Mac Counter to meet up with friend. Employee explained this is the Genius Bar; Mac Counter is another place. #
  • Graphics for @PropellerheadSW app Figure resemble Josef Albers’ album covers, don’t they? (via @pheezy) #
  • Back home from LA. Familiar sounds: refrigerator drone, electrical whine, a particular nearing-midnight pace to traffic. #
  • My 19-month-old just talked with me on the phone for the first time. Apparently this ended with peering deep inside the phone. #
  • At the Theme Building at LAX. #
  • If you have two instances of same program open in different Desktops in OS X Lion, Command Tab doesn’t distinguish them. #grumble #
  • First ever Disquiet Junto concert scheduled for April 19 in Chicago. Details to follow as date approaches. #
  • Disquiet Junto this week will be sonic narrative, diving headlong into Oulipo. (Color-theory held off for plan refinement.) #
  • You send a note to a company’s help request, and you get a reply from someone you know. #
  • The hotel room is less Scylla and Charybdis than refrigerator drone and elevator rumble. #
  • MC Escher designed the topography of downtown Los Angeles. #
  • Pretty happy with Android version of Instagram, except it says some recent photos too small to publish. Maybe they are. #
  • Next Junto: color theory. Future Juntos: video underscore, sonic narrative, app deployment, pixel blues. #
  • Major thanks, @wildUp @orionrountree @mlaffs, for the Shostakovich source audio for the past week’s project. About 65 remixers participated. #
  • A couple hours to midnight, we’re at 60 (or 62, depending on search return exigencies) @wildup Shostakovich Junto remixes. #
  • This Monolake song is first time I’ve set a song as “my new jam” that actually feels like “my new jam” and not just “here’s something good.” #
  • “Afterglow”by Monolake is my new jam. ♫ #
  • I like that take. RT @HXDK: listening to this week’s @disquiet #junto feeling a Soviet science fiction soundtrack vibe in a lot of them. in reply to HXDK #
  • Back from day on town with my 19-month-old to find 57 (!) remixes in the @wildUp Shostakovich Junto: @daysnotover #
  • Monolake: Ghosts: Afterglow. On repeat. #
  • Realizing I will be at about 35,000 feet on way toward L.A. tomorrow when the Tuesday noon siren occurs. #
  • Now 45 @wildup Shostakovich Junto remixes. Loving @djkaboodle‘s machinations: djkaboodle and 1st-timer @brokenhours #
  • Now 2 shy of 40 @wildup Shostakovich Junto remixes, and there’s still a day and a quarter left; either 3 or 4 first-timers too. #
  • 6:00pm bells, consumed by passing jet engine. #
  • The guilt of enjoying the resonance of a distant siren knowing somewhere for someone else the same sense of distance is a cause for alarm. #
  • What he said. RT @DETXL: Observing the world with noise-isolating earphones is bizarre. People open their mouths, and Philip Glass comes out #
  • Woke to find we’re now just 1 remix shy of 30 in the @wildup Shostakovich Junto: Plenty of fine morning listens. #
  • I try to watch a commercial on YouTube but it forces me to watch another one first. Someday it’ll show the commercial I want to watch twice. #
  • 1 shy of 20th @wildup Shostakovich Junto remix. Latest: Chiara Zedek of Brooklyn; Linda Aubry Bullock of Cambridge, MA: #
  • I think the people at Apple who work on Mission Control and the people who handle CTRL-tab aren’t on speaking terms. #
  • Many thanks to @chutson99 for the amazing Shostakovich stencil at top of this post: Cc @wildUp @mlaffs in reply to chutson99 #
