As mentioned last time, I completed the Piece For Walking and posted it up in the art section. I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out...it's satisfying to surprise yourself once in a while. John claims that the above mentioned track is called "Blown to Pieces While Walking". I'll accept "Piece for Walking (to the end of the world)" or even "Piece for Walking (off the edge)", but absolutely not "Blown to Pieces While Walking". :) heh. Although I've been thinking about it for some time, I finally started migrating my audio content over to archive.org. You can click (hell, bookmark it!) this link to see what's available by me. "The Burden" is complete, and the others are in a pseudo complete semi pending state. I expect them to be fully available within a few days. Sometime last week I was thinking about how all window-based UIs generally suck and that the our whole keyboard-mouse thing under utilizes the left hand and that it's a shame that things haven't progressed too much in the last 15-20 years. I guess I have high expectations for the smart ones. Anyway, I was looking at this glove as a distraction and it got me kinda interested. Synchronicity kicked in tonight when somebody on the pd mailing list mentioned buying one for $12.50 from computergeeks.com. How could I resist? I'm pretty interested in interfacing it with pure-data...so expect an update later after I get it. I also saw this kinda interesting thing called FreeWheeling. Interesting looking looper tool...too bad the guy hasn't made it actually available yet. Sheesh.
