Another computer generated composition largely created using Csound, an audio programming environment built in the c language by Barry Vercoe in the mid-80's at MIT. I've recently been experimenting with it creating synthesis sounds. This piece…

This is cool. I am a programmer by day. Never heard of Csound but have you tried PureData. Its similarly low level but its visual (drag and drop and draw instead of typing).

great work pure data is kinda difficult for me to make massive constructions due to the complexity of the details that have to be correct when working with it but pure data is a great program -- :)

My first experience with a mountain dulcimer was one that was refretted with glued on bits of wire to make each step 65 cents instead of the usual 100 cents. I like your calming playing. It is like a conversation with friends by a fire under the starry sky.

This has a distant, lonesome, Ry Cooder-like feel. Like driving through the desert.

Of late I've been going through a fascination with cassette tape. Really it started in 2019 when I released a Bandcamp release of mine on a physical cassette tape which is available at the link below. That said I've been inspired by Randall…

I hadn't realised Colleen was listening same time... I was off checking out Mary Oliver... but yes, after the initial scratchiness that I got used too, I agree, very quickly the cacophony did seem "normal" to me and even commonplace... and the poem Egrets (I had to look up what an Egret was, I didn't know! I knew the word, but not that it was a white bird) ... that kinda emphasised it... there was magical, but normal, and natural, stuff going on, and even the cacophony itself was natural - as in not necessarily man-made - the thorns and mosquitos...

I read the description and thought "ummmm, ok"... and, indeed, it did start like that for me. But then it was strangely compelling.

Somehow this is a perfect representation of how "noisy" our daily lives are, and how the cacophony seems almost normal.... Cool stuff here
