Past Week at

  • Proposed slightly alternate universe: One in which Max/MSP is named after Max Neuhaus. #
  • SoundCloud’s new, multi-account-based sets are my new jam. #
  • 3 hrs, 3 mins & 32 secs of drones by 38 musicians based on shared sample set:, thanks to new @soundcloud “sets”… #
  • Disquiet Junto project 24 has gone to the group’s email list and been posted at Theme: functional sound. #
  • It makes weirdly too much sense that Billy Campbell is half Billy Crudup and half Campbell Scott. #
  • Remain convinced the best thing about Apple OS is that its orderliness and elegance encourage same in its users. #
  • Between Quakers and the new David Byrne / St. Vincent, something is going on with all this brass band music, and it’s quite welcome. #
  • If I’m reading correctly, the “next” @SoundCloud indeed provides ability to create sets, which will be a great way to compile Junto projects #
  • On morning of day we’re due to start Disquiet Junto project about sonic alerts I mistook a crow’s call for an unfamiliar laptop/phone alarm. #
  • Generally speaking, I am Con-metheus. #
  • Intrigued by these enhanced @soundcloud tweets mentioned at but haven’t come across one yet. #
  • Disquiet’s email newsletter moved to (If you were already subscribed, then you’re on it.) Members: 1,231 and counting. #
  • First time since 2010 I was gonna give @emusic a serious look, and the website is down. #
  • Theme for 24th Disquiet Junto project, which starts tomorrow, is a suite of sonic alerts. It’s about functional music/sound. #
  • I do fear the music was etched in my brain. MT @sbb: @disquiet More of a public performance issue. Where are ASCAP & BMI when you need them? #
  • Perhaps someone from the RIAA could be of service in stopping this individual on the bus from singing along with his iPod? #
  • At a bar downtown. We may need to do a cocktail-shaker revisit of the first Junto project. #
  • Tuesday noon siren in San Francisco. “This this is is a a test test.” Relative distance between speakers produces echo effect. #
  • Today’s soundtrack will be a neighboring backyard being rid of its concrete. #
  • In just 23 weeks and 23 projects, the Disquiet Junto is just 14 tracks shy of its 1000th: #
  • What if @EganGoonSquad‘s “Black Box” short story from @NYerFiction were a Barbara Kruger installation: #
  • MT @_TheOrdinary_: Peal of thunder starts to east of me, decrescendos towards west, passing directly overhead and lasting a good 1/2 minute. #
  • Kinda relieved the new Macbook Airs aren’t a significant upgrade on the model I have (“mid 2011”). #
  • Not a speaker. (Sidewalk grate.) #
  • Chimes in the elephant habitat at the Oakland Zoo. Sadly, no recital today. #
  • Quiet time at the Oakland Zoo. #
  • Recently began watching Downton Abbey. Great how the score’s Glassy minimalism insistently projects the pressure and momentum of modernity. #
  • What if Jennifer Egan’s New Yorker short story “Black Box” were a Barbara Kruger installation: #
  • Every time the main theme plays in Prometheus, which is quite often, I expect the Starship Enterprise to fly overhead. #
  • The beauty of the “palindrone” is how it encourages a listener’s attention to form in a format that is often formless: #
  • Lovely object “Thank You for Listening” by Amber Jean Young. Exhibit opens tonight at in San Francisco. #
