there's a new mini hardware synth called Zynthian with
a whole bunch of open source stuffed into a little raspberry
pi box. It has a web interface to edit the sounds, coool

xlt user "fah" made a soft synth called fah-synth a while
ago. rather interesting.

nice one, i will check it out for sure

i think the future definitely is some sort of hybridisation
between traditional hardware components and programmable
elements

the past is the future. to quote raymond scott:

"The composer must bear in mind that the radio listener does
not hear music directly. He hears it only after the sound
has passed through a microphone, amplifiers, transmission
lines, radio transmitter, receiving set, and, finally, the
loud speaker apparatus itself."

"Perhaps within the next hundred years, science will perfect
a process of thought transference from composer to listener.
The composer will sit alone on the concert stage and merely
'think' his idealized conception of his music. Instead of
recordings of actual music sound, recordings will carry the
brainwaves of the composer directly to the mind of the
listener."

i would go further than scott with the first bit. i've
gradually gotten better at learning to recognize frequency
ranges by ear, and it changes the way i hear things
sometimes. like a radio, every channel is there at once, but
the mind selectively tunes into specific parts. listen to
what the drums are doing. ohh, i like that bass. listening
is active. it doesn't stop at the loudspeaker.

so would direct communication even be as fun? i've
definitely had plenty of moments where i'm thinking about
how will someone react to this and what next. playing games
with expectation and the ear's usual habits. squarepusher

his coathangar jam.

"learning to recognize frequency ranges by ear", i can tell
if there's a snare in a bar too:)

No such thing as direct communication, you would become the
thing you are communicating with. 'Genres' init, more or
less vague identification with something.

i remember the library fondly. it had a fishtank with a
lamprey in it and a cactus plant that was literally two
stories tall. been in the stairwell for forty years or
someth. then they knocked it down and built a new library; i
always did wonder what they did with the cactus and the
lamprey. first visit i'd just been put on to add n to (x) by
some jerk in arizona and i look up "on the wires of our
nerves." and god damn, they had it. i figured it would be in
the back somewhere, but it couldn't have been ten feet from
the computer i looked it up on. i didn't check it out,
though, because i had a few others already. if the library
were open today i might go back for it. just in that sort of
mood, you know? perhaps the internet has a pdf.

i think i have to un-forget calculus if i'm to get past
certain points on things. this is sort of like having to
sacrifice a rook in the chess game of my mind vs. society
and culture. what a pain in the ass.
