Demographics of the Disquiet Junto | The Ethan Hein Blog
I've fallen behind a bit, but Junto has been great for my musical output and also my approach to composition/recording/production. Ethan's survey captures some of the why - including the other great brains you get to run into doing it.

NYMPHAEA - Svetlana Maraš
"Nymphaea is one in a set of 7 works made under the title Ethereal Information. These works are Pure data patches, and they are generative sound works functioning by the rules of partially fixed algorithms. Each of the patches leaves the space for user’s input that will influence certain aspects of the work. Patches can be used under the Creative Commons Attribution license, as part of other works, in installations, galleries, public spaces or wherever you find them suitable."

Music as software. I'm listening to it now; not as an MP3, but as a PureData patch. Very good.

RA: Trickfinger: Letting Go
Really interesting interview with John Frusciante on his move into electronic music; particularly interesting (and good) on the relationship between engineering and art, and an artist's desire to work more closely with his materials.

"Weeklybeats is a 52 week long music project in which artists compose and publicly release 1 song a week for the entire year." Not sure I'll even get anything in for Week 1, but worth bearing in mind.

Gamasutra - The Last Express: Revisiting An Unsung Classic
Lovely, interesting article about The Last Express; some nice notes about the production process, the problem with setting games at the turn of the century, and juggling as bonding. Interesting how many lessons from the game still have relevance to modern gaming, and I love the "small space, mapped perfectly" ideal.

BBC - BBC 6 Music Programmes - The Record Producers, Brian Wilson
Heard some of this last night; a superb BBC documentary about Brian Wilson and some of his production techniques that shaped the Beach Boys' albums. Some great interviews, and lovely musical deconstruction of harmony and voicing. Obviously, as a "listen again" programme, it's only around for six days - so get listening!

"By the time Joe Average has hardware that can run your fancy-pants game, it’s long gone from stores... You keep aiming your game at this tiny, pirate-infested group [of players with 'gaming rigs'] and wondering why sales are so small."
