Monday Night Drumming

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008

Last night marks the first time I’ve been able to use the fancy new field recorder to do some real recording.  Although there were only two of us to play, and I was certainly a bit out of sorts, we were able to pull off some interesting bits that rendered pretty well on the H2.  […]

Musings for the week of 2008-12-29

Monday, December 29th, 2008

Tomorrow is Christmas – the 5-year-old is starting to vibrate. #
Balthazar just called the clock a “time machine.” Fitting, really. #
I hate cats at Christmas – they break your ornaments! #
Merry Christmas! #
I got the Zoom H2 field recorder! You can expect to hear some live drumming in the future. #

Beating the Goat at Midnight

Sunday, December 28th, 2008

I call it Thunderhead, though I have yet to unleash upon it to confirm its namesake. It was midnight this Sunday morning when I finally got to beat the old goat skin into the night air. I played some variations on Saidi and Masmoudi to get a feel for the resonance and response on this new drum.

DiY PC: Antec Nine Hundred (Case)

Monday, July 9th, 2007

I’m in the process of building out a new custom PC for the house – the first one in quite a while now. Contrary to what you might think, as a technology guy I’m usually a little late for getting things up-to-date around the house. As such, I’m replacing an old Intellistation dual-proc […]

Microsoft Acquires SeaDragon: Photosynth Preview

Thursday, June 14th, 2007

Wow! I mean, really?!? Words cannot express this amazing (new-ish) technology. A picture is worth 1,000 words, and this technology brings together thousands of pictures in new and innovative ways. Perhaps we’re getting close to a proper expression now. I’m not going to attempt to rationalize or dissect this concept […]

Evil Tree (ZoomQuilt)

Friday, March 4th, 2005

Matt H. introduced me to the ZoomQuilt project at Evil Tree (great name, but no apparent content). It’s a painting that you’re able to pass into until you eventually loop back around. A bit like traveling through a torus adorned with a seemless mural – you know what I’m talking about…right. Anyway, […]

View the Universe –

Tuesday, August 17th, 2004

SLOOH is an interactive, web-based, astronomical service offering live views into the universe. For those that are interested in space, this is one of the most rewarding experiences I can imagine [affording]. The project is based out of the Canary Islands and utilizes a number of large telescopes for maximized sight and zoom […]

Canon Announces the XL2

Wednesday, July 14th, 2004

The waiting is over for the prosumer mini-DV world as Canon (finally) releases the XL2, the follow-up to the wildly successful (some would say ground-breaking) XL1S. With both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (film-like and TV-like, respectively), variable frame rates (again, to more closely emulate film or TV), interchangeable lens (the same as the […]
