week 79

Trying to not get sick.  70 pages of unedited thesis text.  More importantly:

– Saw the wonderful Xenia Pestova in concert with Shawn Mativetsky, playing pieces for various keyboards / tabla combinations.   They’re both great.

– The cat who made Twitch Plays Pokemon won the internet.

WALLS have done an album with Daphne Oram, and it sounds like the future.  Oram, like Derbyshire, was one of the Radiophonic Workshop originals, built her own tool for turning images into music, and was a genuine British Weirdo of the first rank.  If you don’t know her, find out.

Pretty samplers are pretty.

– The trailer for Chroma, from Harmonix, is so generic as to be meaningless, but the words in the article are very, very interesting.
