We’re hosting another awesome weekend of live music and art in our Backyard space next weekend, June 19th/20th.
We have an amazing body of work by Entropy, a good friend of ours, and local Sunset artist.
On saturday, we’ll have a live opera performance and talk by Céline Ricci. She is the Founder /Executive Artistic Director from Ars Minerva, and live music from Murder Murder
Sunday we’ll have live music by Lunchbox!
Woop! Got an awesome new backyard show coming up next weekend - Saturday and Sunday March 27/28 - the Sunset Sketchers Annual Group Show, 2021.
We have a ton of great art, and I’m particularly excited for some model installations by Thomas Beutel!
We have two amazing bands playing, one on each day from 3pm -
Cindy (playing saturday, 3pm)
China (playing sunday, 3pm)
We should have issue #2 of the zine ready too!
Finally edited the video footage from our last art show, Brent Willson’s Lost City and Bridge Bardo!
Ah, super lovely review of My Side Of The City and The B0ardside #1 from my buddy Dan Shahin ..
This is taken from a longer livestream here.
Finished a comic I’ve been working on this past year - over at the Drawing B0ard -
Oh, should have posted this a while back!
All videos from the Algorithmic Art Assembly conference/festival I ran in March, are now online –
I’m just back from a two week holiday in the UK, and while over there, I took part in the first Energized Labs meetup (thanks Matt!), and gave a talk about my efforts in trying to combine my art and tech influences..
Also check both Matt and Martin’s talks from the same session ..
This is a good chat with Doug Eck, of the Google Magenta project
It’s a project I’ve been keeping an eye on, as it has a ton of potential. I’ve generated some melodies based on their Melody RNN - although i need to spend more time with it, as I’ve been more focussed on own generative algorithms.
Up at XOXO last year, the Jenn Schiffer talk was definitely one of the most fun:
this older one i found from 2015 is equally as entertaining, I love the opening sequence, it’s got a kind of “cool” Portlandia vibe!
My mother, over in Glasgow, was telling me about a BBC program called A Day In The Life, and specifically of an episode about Frank QUitely - i found it on youtube.com for about 30 mins but it’s already been taken down. (I didn’t get to see it either!!).
Fortunately however, I did find this lovely interview with “Frank” (whose name i just found out is a stage name! )
Oh yeah, that Codetraxx project I mentioned, which me and Tack have been working on - here’s a recording made using it. All samples included in the repo too..
Wow. just wow…
[Tack](https://twitter.com/tackyy) turned me onto this guy the other day - i love him! Artist/Skater/Hacker - whats not to love?!
This was following me and Tack’s Codetraxx project - which is working - we’re making music and synchronized via RabbitMQ as we set out to do - however we’ve hit a bit of a wall with the algorithmic math behind musical composition, so we’ve decided to focus on some mathematical hack nights for a while. Another friend of mine, Matt Spendlove, had told me about The Nature Of Code which i’ve been wanting to read, so I suggested we play with Processing - seems awesome already! So yeah, Codetraxx on hold for a while, and work on a couple of Processing projects for a while …
