Interesting post by Graydon Hoare on 'next things' for programming languages: https://graydon2.dreamwidth.org/253769.html - in fact, most interesting are some of the things he links to. I didn't know about F# Quoted Expressions. Some interesting mechanim similar to macros but expanding them at runtime (?)
Hey Mastodonians, first toot in 2018. Great to see that everyone is still in my timeline. Have a good start into this year. I wanted to post a photo of my cat ultra happy to be back home, but alas someone (probably me?) took the SD card from the camera. So you have to imagine that. 🐱
🍍 premiere of our radio piece #Raumaneignungen is on air today at 19:30 CET, i.e. in 1 1/2 hours: https://helsinki.at/program/73365 - live stream: https://helsinki.at/livestream ; wow, thought it was week later. If you miss it, it's repeated on Thursday

Working on the final mixes of a new radiophonic piece which is a collaboration with three more persons. Figured radio is a great format for collaborative working on sound, something that's inherently difficult with other media such as sound installation or concert pieces.
Friday is the midissage of Martin Rumori's sound art exhibition at esc. I'm playing a performance on that evening (19 o'clock). In German: http://esc.mur.at/de/termin/midissage-und-jahresausklang-promenade-anekdote-alltag-abbild
Spent some work on moving part of my current experiments with a collaborative radio piece '#Raumaneignungen' to use my #FScape DSP offline system. Needed to implement a handful of new UGens, but finally I get to actually experiment with the signal transformation flow. This becomes a fabulous way of experimentation. Hopefully I get to write about it soon…
My two friends and colleagues that share the office desk with me at the #IEM defended their dissertations today. We all started our doctorates around 2005/06, so this was a crazy long period, and I had meanwhile moved to a separate doctoral programme in England. I'm very happy for them to have made it finally, two great presentations on composing interactions with dynamical systems and aesthetic implications of binaural sound, respectively. Tonight everyone's celebrating. 🎉
"S.A.M. disables interrupt requests and shuts down the ANTIC chip during vocal output. Therefore, the screen will blank out and the BREAK key will not operate while S.A.M. is speaking."
Odersky on the possible design of #Scala's future macro/meta-programming system: https://gist.github.com/odersky/f91362f6d9c58cc1db53f3f443311140 Very exciting!
