week 56

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.
