This looks like a pretty amazing game.  I've been dreaming about something like this for awhile, but I don't think I have the math skills to create something like it.

Basso Continuo

This is a track I made in Reason about 2002/3
It was a pretty impulsive track and I remember making it pretty quickly.
I've never made a track as DnB-ish as this.
Would like to play around more with this style in the future.

Music for sleeping children

"Music for Sleeping Children is an experimental collaboration between internationally recognized visual artist Charlie White and Mercury-nominated musician and producer Boom Bip (also known as Bryan Hollon). The project stems from White's investigations of the representation of American adolescence, and was born from a relationship forged between White and Hollon in 2009 when they collaborated on "We Like to Shop," a simple clap-along song from White's experimental cartoon, OMG BFF LOL that Hollon converted into a throbbing club track for the work's US premier at the Aldrich Museum. From there, White and Hollon set out to realize a far more ambitious project conceived by White as the marriage of in-depth teen interviews, discussions, and studio projects with pop, electronica, hip hop and experimental composition. Working in tandem, White and Hollon fashioned the concept of each track around the original studio recordings of teen girls ranging in age from 12 …

Squarepusher interview by Mary Anne Hobbes

I love Squarepusher. Always think he has insightful things to say when ever I hear him talk about the creative process. Also, the Breezeblock was very import part of my listening life.

Pixar's Ed Catmull on How to Be "Brave" in Today's Hollywood: The Full D10 Interview (Video):

With Pixar’s latest animated movie — “Brave” — about to open, using new technology, there’s a lot riding on the outcome for Ed Catmull.
As the president and co-founder of Pixar Animation Studios and president of Walt Disney Animation Studio, he was key to the debut of the first-ever computer-generated feature film, “Toy Story,” which ushered in a new way of thinking about animation.
But the need for showstopping innovation in entertainment never ends, as the celebrity computer scientist and bona fide five-time Oscar winner discussed in this D10 interview with me.
Here’s the whole session:

This is a nice series of concept videos from Albert Hwang on how Spatial Computing will work in the future with a combination of kinect like sensors, augmented reality glasses and gloves to control interaction.  He started making this in 2009 and and posted the 3rd on this April.  Some very nice concepts and he explains it a very straight forward manner.  Looking forward to these experiences becoming a reality in the future.

David Byrne and Brian Eno interview with Hillman Curtis

David Byrne and Brian Eno are both amazing artists. I've loved both of their work. I was also inspired by Hillman Curtis when I read his book "MTIV: Process, Inspiration and Practice for the New Media.
Designer".

Just heard that Hillman Curtis passed away on April 18, 2012.  Very sad to hear.

I've known about Raymond Scott for a number of years. But I've never really deeply researched his music and history. Truly one of the originators of electronic music.

Here are a few videos showcasing his weirder sounds.



This above track from Scott definitely makes me think of the sounds of AFX on the Analord series.

Bruce Sterling Closes the 2011 A+E Conference

Always love Bruce Sterlings talks. Can't wait to hear what he has to say next.  I'll have to listen to this again and try to skim out some of the perls of wisdom and post them up here at some point.

Here is the conferences website for the 2011 Art + Environment Conference in Nevada. I believe his next talk will be from SXSW



I've made a least two other posts about his talks, which I'll post the links to here.

Liquid Skies: Sci-fi visions

Awesome animation of some shiny future.

I've been wondering why we never see sci-fi done to this detail. So much concept art like this is full of detail, but it ends of getting watered down for the full film watching experience.
