#np Skinny Puppy - Addition (KMFDM remix; 1987 / 1998)
Done with my mic "corner" setup.
Since the acoustic panels affect the entire space, the effect of being inside vs outside the U-shaped setup is rather subtle: https://open.audio/library/tracks/110054/
In the room itself, I felt the difference on the voice more strongly than on the recording. You can mostly notice the more narrow spatiality of the inside sound, whereas the outside sound has a broader stereo image (obviously, due to more reflections), also it has stronger colourisation.
A new #Mellite v3.4.0 is out - and I made a tutorial video on how you can export a workspace to run it as a sound piece in the browser.
This is cool - a web server based SDR (software defined radio) where you can make all the tunings: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
Much better reception than the cheap thirty or so EUR one I got few years back for a project (probably the antenna was worse). I wonder how many users can tune in concurrently with their own settings.
Even lets you record in the browser and save the resulting sound file.
Yuk Hui: “Instead of saying, #writing is an externalisation of memory, or the use of certain tools is a liberation of bodily organs, in this writing itself we find different relations, for example between human beingn and animals, human beings and non-human beings, a complexity of relations.” (for example pictorial vs phonetic writing)
Should I ever be implicated in a crime, I have an airtight alibi:
*me:* But officer, did you find any traces of hair from a grey British Shorthair cat?
*they:* ah, no, what are you trying say?
*me:* Look, couldn't have been me. There is literally not a square centimetre in my environment, my clothing etc., that doesn't have those fibres.

'web sound space'
We were discussing yesterday, whether to iterate a sound installation for 'browser format'. I think it's a radically different space (and would be an entirely new piece). Some thoughts:
- personal, intimate space
- noisy space ("between tabs", "between coffee and e-mail")
- framed space, poststamp space. who has their laptop wired up normally to a good sound system?
- volatile space (open a tab, close a tab, forgotten)
- radiophonic space (tending to your computer is not unlike listening to a radio receiver? also: "radio background"; remote connection)
- connected space (when going via a server vs. front-end only)?
- what's the source of time? does it start when you open the tab, does the piece "always exist" and you merely tune in?
- multiphonic space (there can be different tabs running)
- controlled space (mute / unmute)
- what else?
