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

Past Week at

  • I only follow two TV characters on Twitter: a fictional person and a fictional version of a fictional person. #
  • From Last Resort’s island to Myles’ cameo in Person of Interest, the shadow Lost casts on today’s television is expansive. #
  • Sacramento tomorrow. Anything art-ish I should check out, lemme know. #
  • Fear of How Music Works #
  • I have two art-dot-sy ( invites, if anyone wants one. #
  • Read far too many reviews of Looper, wrote a check to myself to transfer funds, got a big headache. #
  • “All these bottles thrown into the sea eventually found recipients.” —Nowaki netlabel on benefits of Creative Commons: #
  • For folks involved in the @djunto this week, a beautiful thank-you from the netlabel: #
  • Playing catchup. Set of 40 tracks from the @djunto project when we remixed the theme of the Radius broadcast/podcast: #
  • RIP, Half Sack. #
  • Dredd isn’t great, but at least the 3D was considered as part of visual design. And it really looked 2000 AD to me (the comic not the year). #
  • The 39th weekly @djunto project has begun at Remixing three netlabel releases. #
  • A bit of netlabel activism is the modus operandi for this week’s @djunto, the 39th in the weekly series. #
  • “Look at all of those no-deriv licenses (grumble grumble). What’re you afraid of?” That’s @vuzhmusic asking netlabels what’s up. #
  • Ignore that last comment/question. PDFs are transferring fine. The doc in question turned out to have been an HTML file. #
  • Is it possible to send PDFs from GoodReader to iAnnotate PDF on the iPad? #
  • Listen to music by Brian Eno from the exhibit that spawned his forthcoming Lux album: Post updated thanks to @wifsten. #
  • Listen to music from the installation that inspired the forthcoming Brian Eno album, Lux: Plus a lecture. And diagrams! #
  • Anyone know who did the cover art for the forthcoming Brian Eno album, Lux (Warp, Nov. 13)? It looks Tom Phillips”“ish. #
  • Today in sound class: surveillance in The Conversation, sampled submarine sounds in Last Resort, and Lucille Ball emulates Charlie Chaplin. #
  • Odd whistle sound while in shower. Any other time of day I’d assume it’s a distant siren, but in the morning, maybe a neighbor’s tea kettle? #
  • Night sounds: dishwasher rumbling, TV creaking as it cools down, rattle of an occasional passing car, whine of MUNI bus coming to a stop. #
  • Design-oriented Apple sends Rothko Chapel visitors to a house down the road. #
  • Tomorrow in sound class, week 3, “The Score”: Conversation/Murch, sound design, foley, (un)silent film, laugh tracks, Southland, Last Resort #
  • Manhattan Disquiet Junto concert is now on the calendar: November 27 @apexart. Details to follow. #
  • Are these newly legal driverless cars are allowed to respond to text messages? #
  • Side view of Tilden Park sound tube. #
  • Not a shower head. One of two sound tubes in Tilden Regional Park playground. #
  • Afternoon audio stream: the lo-fi, low-key guitar/loop/din hush of Josh Mason’s forthcoming Jeremiad: #
  • Sentence I didn’t foresee myself typing: “Just signed up for MySpace invite.” #
  • Tuesday noon siren in San Francisco, heard through closed windows on a cold, windy day — the sound the clearest it’s been in recent memory. #
  • Testing @SurteesStudios‘ OS X Bartender Bar beta. Smart that a clutter-minded app has icon selection, rather than forcing its icon on you. #
  • “violist at musician” / The unintentional performing-arts commentary of LinkedIn. #
  • So many hybrid cars in Berkeley, parking lots here have a very different vibe from the norm. #
  • Train, unseen, echoed through Tilden Park. #
  • RIP, Sam Sniderman (b. 1920), founder of the Canadian record store chain Sam the Record Man: #
  • Found sounds. Sidewalk cassette. Cult jam. #
  • Kabuki version of Woman in the Dunes at Precita Park. (Really just overly sunscreened toddlers in sunken sand box.) #
  • “Signal sweeping for transmitters. You’re just a party animal.” Enemy of the State is no The Conversation, but has fun with whence it came. #
  • The Ripping Point: The moment when number of downloaders at the café manage to slow the Internet access to near-zilch. #
  • Information flows through this. #
  • Waking to Lethem/Chabon parallels paralleling DeLillo/Auster parallels. #
  • “A Brief History of Sound.” Notes from the second week of my sound class: #celebritydeath #synaesthesia #phonography #
