Every time I come to LiveJournal for my monthly visit, I encounter yet another new annoyance. It's not you, it's them. Consider me retired from here.

Current Mood: fuck off, livejournal

I'm writing some new music! I haven't started a promising new track for 9 months. But today, I sat down in front of Logic, set up some software synths, recorded a few short parts, looped it for a bit while trying to come up with the missing piece, and the missing piece just...happened.

Current Mood: ecstatic

Now I get it. "OH (obligatory humor)" means "please laugh at this lame joke; it's the best I've got".

spare ones and zeros
Is anyone looking for a copy of The Orb: Baghdad Batteries (Orbsessions Volume 3)? I bought two copies by mistake. $16, no tax, free shipping.

I have the cardboard sleeve version on Malicious Damage.

this cereal makes me sick
I like Shredded Oats cereal, but it makes me ill. I'm lactose intolerant, but the ingredients list doesn't mention any dairy products:

• whole oat flour
• whole wheat flour
• unsulphured molasses
• malted barley extract
• baking soda
• salt
• natural vitamin e (mixed tocopherols (soy))
• vitamin c

Does anyone have any ideas why I would consistently get sick after eating this product?

Current Mood: sick

clandestine radio
One of the reasons I bought my first shortwave radio about four years ago was to try to find numbers stations. I joined the ENIGMA 2000 group and downloaded their hitchhiker's guide, but never had any luck until I stumbled upon a numbers broadcast a couple days ago.

the best of mutek_10
i recently returned from montreal, where i attended the 10th edition of the mutek electronic music festival. it was my third time at the mutek festival. i had a festival passport, allowing me entry into every event. holes were punched in the laminated passport upon admission, and i'm pleased to report that i got every event hole punched (although i didn't stay for the duration of each event).

if you're interested in electronic music, this list of my favorite performances might give you some new or familiar artists to explore, and perhaps encourage you to consider attending future mutek festivals.

read more about the best of what i experienced at the festival this year...Collapse )

also: i have a mutek 2009 photo set on flickr.

submission for mutek demo derby 2009
i don't know if there's a demo derby at mutek this year, but here is the track that i made for it. this composition is nearly done, but i may do more mixing and mastering when i return from montreal in early june.

this was inspired by the sounds of basic channel/chain reaction, and to a lesser degree, arctic hospital. this is more of a soundscape than a song, and i did evil things with the dynamics (feeding the wind and the kick drum into the same compressor and adding gain, kind of like performing an XOR). the limiter at the last stage of the mix is doing a fair bit of work. you might not like this.

the url will be posted to my friends-only feed.

my plane takes off at 8:20am tomorrow morning. eeeeek

Current Mood: excited

my demoscene-focused weblog
i'm now maintaining a weblog that focuses on my demoscene activities:


if you're interested in my demoscene participation, follow me there. my livejournal probably won't feature much demoscene information anymore, aside from major announcements.

don't write the way you speak
I aim to convince people that writing is nothing like speaking, and I found an excellent example to illustrate the problem. In The ultimate airplane tour, we find this quote:
It seems as if almost nobody is here it is so quiet but inside the planes we're told teams of workmen are beavering away (as well as robots).
I can vividly imagine a reporter speaking those exact words into a portable recorder. I'm sure that the phrase makes sense during playback, because of contextual inflection, but the transcription is extremely difficult to read. Inflection can't be written without looking *stupid*. Your writing should avoid depending on something that isn't there.

The reporter and editor(s) also treated us to a run-on sentence.

I would write the above quote like this:
It is so quiet that it seems as if almost nobody is here. The tour guide tells us, however, that teams of workmen and robots are beavering away inside the planes.
