It's barely three years old and I can't find anywhere to actually get a copy. Closest I've found so far is one of the composers' websites with a non-functional store section that keeps redirecting to itself.
There's a whole world of music happening in tiny concert halls, trickling out impossible to source releases... someone tell GEM about bandcamp. :( ... or RMN Classical, or Fondazione Russolo-Pratella, or even Wergo...
In the meantime if anyone knows how to track down a copy of this album, please let me know!
Forgot to add expires headers but otherwise looks basically the way most any simple static site should look!
I'm helping a friend convert his website into a single file HTML document* he can edit himself. He sent me the text of the site as an RTF file. The site is meant to be basically a one-sheet, but it's a bit lengthy and I wasn't looking forward to manually reformatting all the text... then I discovered unrtf which converts from RTF to HTML. So that's basically all the tedious bits done already! Hooray!
* Well, I'm putting the header and footer into apache SSIs in anticipation of more pages
"Sound works that exploit the limitations of basic digital equipment, utilising a combination of malfunction, error and accidents to produce new data."
Sounds like analog recordings of digital devices. <3
Oh yes, there is indeed a lot of great stuff happening inside. I wonder how these were created? Just creative microphones? Were they processed? The waveforms all look very analog-ish...
This is 60 seconds of track two slowed to 1/8th speed.
I wasn't even going to bother listening to the raw audio but these are actually way more audible than I expected. At least I can hear an ever-so-slight patter of pops on track two... I keep thinking I hear the high tones but then I stop the recording and I still hear what I thought were the high tones, so...
Actually track two is the only one I can reliably make something out from. I'm curious how these sound brought into a normal range of hearing though.
Details from the first four tracks of Immedia's In Audio which I finally tracked down. One of these discs (it was a series, mine is from February 1999) became the basis of Bernhard Günter's Monochrome White / Polychrome W/Neon Nails and Monochrome Rust / Differential series.
The Immedia CDs were experiments in inaudible sound (it's all extremely high frequency) but there is so much interesting _data_ here... I'm understanding better why Günter was inspired to do hours of reworkings from it...
Funny how basically nothing has changed since the last time I worked on this except my perspective. Distance is the only way sometimes!
This is definitely not going to be a three part 90 minute suite, but I think I can whittle this down into a pretty solid ~30 minutes in two parts.
I was sure this morning I'd be starting over from scratch on the whole thing.
I've been *so* stuck on this kind of too sprawling project where I'm remixing about a dozen remixes other folks did of my music last year. I'd planned out about 90 minutes to try to flesh out over three thirty minute segments... and I eventually painted myself into a corner.
I have about 42 minutes of unfinished material now. I'm listening back to this for the first time in over a month and I'm finally feeling like I can hear where it needs to go...
Looks like a lot of neat stuff on the way in mastodon 3.1: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v3.1.0rc1
Download buttons on media attachments is a good idea!
Woah, I just found the ruins of an old status.net server I was running in 2011 and the puredyne identi.ca group! https://web.archive.org/web/20120809044709/http://identi.ca:80/group/puredyne/members
There's so much overlap with the folks I'm following on mastodon now. I completely forget about my brief flirtation with status.net.The present has been in progress for quite a while!
Fleshed out the first and still currently only tutorial in the pippi docs some more today: https://pippi.world/docs/tutorials/001-soundbuffers/
Found a number of bugs in the process. (Good!)
The new bits start to introduce other data types and modules like `Wavetable`, `fx`, etc...
I'm trying to call out the variety of ways to do things without it becoming noisy or overwhelming but in some cases I just need to bit my tongue and leave it for another tutorial...
Music store next door opens at the same time.
- Work at coffeeshop about 90 minutes before
- Go scope out some comics and possibly buy a lapsteel next door if I'm feeling crazy and the one I saw a while ago is still there
- Drop off rent at the bank
- Swing by the grocery store on the way home
- Never leave my house again
