Nothing happened this week. But I’ve been reading, listening, and working:
– What We Talk About When We Talk About Beethoven can now do basic chord extraction, based on Echo Nest chroma data.
– Reading about how people parse comic book layouts, about musical UIs for music education, about the UPIC, and about the art of Mark Dorf and Mark Reynolds.
– Finally finally got the Purity Ring album. Also picked up the self-titled Saa EP, which is also great.
– Got stuck on the top-secret mixtape, found a potential solution that involves Fatboy Slim, Dr. Dre, James Brown, and Jimmy Edgar.
