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

Past Week at

  • Headed up to Sacramento tomorrow. If anything art-gallery”“ish of note is going on, I’d appreciate the heads up. #
  • Not a speaker, and yet quite loud. (Ceiling vent.) #
  • The third time the Sirius/Muzak/whatever “radio” in a café plays Norah Jones in two hours, everyone should get a free espresso. #
  • 10.8.1 #
  • Details to come, but I’ll be in Long Beach (CA) on Sept. 1 for 9th annual SoundWalk sound-art festival: #
  • Already 3 @djunto tracks exploring what @the_radius broadcast’s jingle would sound like as the root of a composition: #
  • At the most basic level, quick/informed customer service means: “Our products work sufficiently that we’re not inundated with complaints.” #
  • The 34th weekly @djunto project explores the idea of a radio show’s theme song bleeding into the feature presentation: #
  • Car dealer’s wifi is super slow. Other guy in waiting room with laptop & I just gave each other the “You downloading Game of Thrones?” look. #
  • All the more timely thanks to Curiosity: I spoke with @ChristofMigone about his Martian Chronicles sound art: #
  • Also found in my closet: A Fistful of Turkeys, Saga, Starfire II. All in all, a turn-based time capsule. #
  • Found a ton of old Steve Jackson (and related) games today in my closet: Hot Spot, Car Wars, Annihilator/One World, One-Page Bulge … #
  • Mostly for @pauladaunt + @compactrobot, here’s my 1993 Depeche Mode interview: + thoughts on it: #
  • Between @soundcloud & @internetarchive, the Instagr/am/bient collection has been streamed/downloaded just shy of 40,000 times. #
  • Warmed-Up Leatherette #
  • Apparently this camera at the entrance of an abandoned movie theater is just taking notes. #
  • For folks who watch Alphas, last night’s episode was the one with the infrasound plot I mentioned in my recent @naturemagazine interview. #
  • I check the weather some mornings, but I always find myself listening to field recordings from around the world. #
  • With 4 Radiohead albums in Pitchfork’s top 20 albums of past 15 years, the title Amnesiac takes on a deeper meaning: #
  • 2 more notes about public outdoor pianos on Denver’s 16th St: (1) lots of homeless people play piano; (2) heard 3 people play “Mad World.” #
  • I listened to the Bourne Legacy score before seeing the film, and really dug the “Cognitive Degrade” track. It’s all the better in context. #
  • Tuesday noon siren in San Francisco after return trip from Denver: a welcome alarm. #
  • I joined in with some folks on a sonic @GAFFTA Urban Prototyping project. Hopeful it gets approved. More on the expo at #
  • Amazing. MT @benjamindauer: My first @djunto track, “A Glimmer of Hope,”has nearly 4,500 plays. Thanks for listening! #
  • Waking, following Denver trip, to the fog horns of the San Francisco Bay. That’s home. #
  • Pleased to learn in last week’s Alphas that Dr. Rosen, like his drug-addled peer Dr. Bishop from Fringe, keeps Yes LPs in his office. #
  • At airport watched over shoulder of someone power-consuming Reddit-filtered images & videos; feared for future of the paragraph. #
  • DEN -> SFO / Headed home after tremendous Denver visit. #
  • When the tile on a bar in a Mexican restaurant looks like a Monome. #
  • One of the few restrictions we have faced this evening: #

  • Ten and Tracer’s brobdignagian @djunto glass (note laptop for scale). #
  • Cody Yantis’ three-glass set up for tonight’s @djunto show. Not pictured: guitar. #
  • C. Reider’s glass with dual contact mics for tonight’s @djunto show. #
  • Almost certainly. RT @debcha: @disquiet I won’t be able to listen to the livestream tonight—any chance it’ll be archived somewhere? #
  • Mysterybear’s seriously stabilized wine glass for tonight’s @djunto concert in Denver. #
  • Wine glass and guitar for Radere’s #djunto set tonight. #
  • Three and a half hours until the @djunto show. It’ll stream live here: (music for digitally enhanced glass harps) #
  • Less than 6 hours until @djunto showtime. An evening of music for electronically mediated glass harmonica: 7pm at Denver’s Walnut Room. #
  • Having a Scotch & soda at a Denver bar, watching photos pop up in Instagram of the current @djunto project (turntables as sound objects). #
  • We should be streaming the @djunto show Sunday (around) 7:00pm Denver time from this @ustream channel: #
  • Come visit, listen, perform! MT @vuzhmusic: Alright, slackers, you have exactly 25 hours to get on a plane for Denver: #

  • Not a pipe organ. (Robert Mangold sculpture in Denver Civic Center.) #
