In which I demonstrate the first thing I do with any brand new Mac to make it much easier to navigate than the way it comes from the factory. As always, your mileage may vary, but this is what works for me.
In which I gives an examination of how to think about playing odd meters in a musical, aesthetically pleasing way. Topics include Take Five (Brubeck), America is Waiting (Byrne/Eno), Tomorrow’s World (Killing Joke), Tattooed Love Boys (Pretenders), Scatterbrain (Jeff Beck), 13/8, 5/4, 7/8, 9/8, 31/8, and nested rhythms.
A blast from the past – a guided tour through my Code Library that I built for myself using Inspiration (http://inspiration.com), a deceptively simple visual organization program that maps well to the way my mind works. The code is Lingo (Macromedia / Adobe Director), circa 1996, (!) but the real point here is the way in which it’s organized, and how I think about multimedia.
