This was going to be a blog post about how sometimes I discover a new music scene that I have no clue about and get into hunter mode, looking for more about the context, label, whatever in a glutton, semi-intoxicated state, and how this week this has happened with emeralds, and the not-new-york-not-california usa experimental music scene, which release mostly on tape and cdr, and how a couple of months ago it was experimental turntablism, via dj sniff, steim, erikm, paul bell, james kelly and the itchy muzik forum which extended my rather traditional philip jeck/christian marclay culture in that area.
But it ended being a linkless, 5 minute post because it was getting long, and was going to get lost as always, and the only thing that I really wanted was an excuse to plug a concert by erikm & ferran fages next week (wednesday 4th, 21:00) at cccb (bcn). organised by l’ull cec, a collective that is arranging lots of concerts that I usually haven’t attended because I didn’t know the artists, but end up invariably regreting 2 or 3 months later when I discover them.
Not this time.

An openFrameworks workgroup has started this week at Hangar. Every thursday until March, the wise Arturo will be there helping you with any doubt that you have. From 19 to 21 pm. +info
The equally talented Chris Sugrue will be doing the same in Madrid’s Medialab. Every friday from 19 to 21pm. +info
Last, and this has been going on for some months now, the incombustible Alba Corral has created an increasingly active spanish speaking processing community, with forum, wiki and more cool projects on the way.
Edit: I almost forget that there is also an introductory workshop to computer sound synthesis taught (with chuck) by Eduard Aylon. In a couple of weeks also in hangar.

For those of you who don’t know, L.A.’s dublab.com is simply the best radio station of the internets.
I still remember that glorious day that my brother told me “hey you must come and see that!, I’ve discovered a radio station and they’re playing Sun ra’s ‘Space is the Place’. Full length!!” (gracias nono). That was like 5 or 6 years ago, and in this time my debt for them has only grown. I’ve discovered there tons of my favorite musicians…
So I thought that you could go there, tune in to the stream or download some podcasts, fall in love with their music and donate some money to support their expenses, could you?

I don’t remember how I arrived at sonenvir, a
research project that investigates applying sonification in a number of scientific disciplines, in order to develop a general sonification software environment.
but after seeing Psycollider , I’m really glad I did.
Psycollider is a windows port of the popular Supercollider real time audio synthesis programming language. As far as I know, it used to be only for the mac. Then there was a Linux version and someone was working on a Windows one, but this port seemed too outdated and inactive for me to bother trying it.
Yesterday, when I found it with a nice installer and simple instructions, I couldn’t resist installing it, and after figuring out a couple of oddities, I’ve been able to make some noise…
More on this to come soon, I guess.
