Thankful for the opportunity to focus on new things at the moment. And for changing seasons. We could see the dog's breath while we had our coffee on the porch this am. Feels like new mornings.
They tell you not to, but #iquitmydayjob today. This is my new aspiration. #iveneverbeenverygoodatdoingwhattheysay
These past few days have felt like fall down here, so the scent of grain and herbs from the garden seemed like a good way to warm the house a bit.
@little_t_truth we'll join you... #cheers
Found.

#DOTN: we call it 'The Celebration'. Pour it straight from any bottle gifted to you. Serve neat. Or any other way you like it.
This man is an artist. This week he packs up one canvas for storage and turns his full attention to new work. Well done, @bryancurrie. Thank you for what you have done, and what you continue to do, and what you will be doing.
Hey all, I've posted a longer and #uncensored version of #Unspoken [for Craigslist personals and Electronics in four channels] on my website. Link in my profile. Please note, it is definitely #NSFW - contains adult themes that some may find offensive.
...
I've been thinking about how to use this medium to tell #stories while working on this one. What makes a story telling good? Does it need to rise and fall? A series of linear events? Does it need to return to some form of 'home'? Can it evolve and be continuously told as it is lived? Not sure I know the answers. Which probably means I'm not entirely sure how to judge if this is a successful piece or not. Something to keep working on, I think.

Unspoken [for Craigslist personals and Electronics in four channels] is a #meditation on #hopes and #desires that may seem too personal to speak aloud. It is a real time piece intended to be installed in a space and played continually as it pulls the text and titles from four…’categories’…of #Craigslist #personals. It whispers the text of four ads and randomly speaks aloud the titles picked from roughly 200. The organ #music is loosely based on pitches of the spoken words with some adjustments to give a greater range of notes. #Angelus bells chime whenever the postings are updated. #soundart #composition #computer #music #computermusic #electroacoustic #ableton #maxmsp
#InTheStudio: Unspoken

Finished this one up over the weekend. Cleaned up the organ lines so they wouldn't get so muddy, and adjusted some of the levels for better balance. As a final layer, I added bells that chime whenever the #craigslist postings get updated. They're intended to be reminescent of #Angelus bells. Each category of personal ads has a different pitch assigned to it. Ultimately decided not to include any interactivity in this one. Didn't seem appropriate for some reason. I hope to get a longer excerpt published on my website in the next day or two.
