some time, but no longer
Not sure where I’m finding the time to write this, but here’s some worthwhile things:
moonbell: The Japanese Space Agency recently did a bunch of high resolution surveying of the moon. So what do you do with the data from that? Well, you turn the moon into something like a record player, by matching pitch to altitude. I can’t possibly do it justice – go see for yourself. (And be sure to click on preferences! There’s all kinds of things you can do.)
Subcycle Labs is a guy in Portland who may have the best damn performance interface I’ve ever seen. No lie – this is a must see.
On a much less hip note, Musica Box is a painfully family friendly (but very good) game from Big Fish that asks all sorts of interesting questions about notation, scoring, and musical memory. Worth a chunk of your time.
