Last week I had a nice conversation with James McQuivey of Forrester on where the book business is going. He has a smart take on how digital is affecting the industry. Here’s an interview he did with Chris Keannelly from the Copyright Clearance Center.

I had a few minutes to experiment with impromptu today and I really liked it. It is a lisp based programming environment for coding music in real time. It also appears to be very effective for real time coding of graphics but I am less interested in that, i, naively I am sure, think that [...]
Here are two synth jam sessions I put together recently. They are both long with multiple sections, my idea being that one or tow of the sections holds promising material I can splice together with others whe I decide to put together another album.

Just put together a page for smaples from old music projects so that they are all together. No new content, just a new display.

I created a public page for my recent experiments in feedback and tapelooping. Here is the link:
Tonight I decided to give writing a break and experimented with some audio, looping some drums through a feedback network and a couple of tape delays. Here is the result:
I have posted a few new tracks that I have been playing with on a page. Here is a link:
Post Modern Music
The pieces are fairly minimal, containing only a few elements and organically move through different permutations of variables such as timbre or tonal pattern. They are a growth from the series of pieces I [...]
