Interesting post by Graydon Hoare on 'next things' for programming languages: - 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 (?)

I don't want to sound like a crazy conspiracy theorist. Show more

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. ๐Ÿฑ

Vol. 9 No. 3 of the Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts () is out; all open access, including my article on 'Halting Operations for Algorithmic Alignment':

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:

Spent some work on moving part of my current experiments with a collaborative radio piece '' to use my 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 soonโ€ฆ

Three new books on my desk that I hope to find time to read during the next two months:

- Fรฉlix Guattari - The Three Ecologies
- N Katherine Hayles - Unthought
- General Ecology (Erich Hรถrl, ed.)

My two friends and colleagues that share the office desk with me at the 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. ๐ŸŽ‰
