[22.5.07] To resume blogging soon

I've taken a break from blogging for the past week on this and the research-centric blog for the purposes of sanity and getting some hardcore reading and research done in the interim. I'll post a research update link on this blog when the Tpot research findings do eventually get written, I'll post some new pics on the soniferous amphx as well.

Following on the coattails of my friends Seb and Lauren, I have set up my own cooking blog.

All artists need to learn to cook their own meals at some point in their lives.

[10.5.07] Masters presentation

So today I gave a presentation of my Masters research to the Music Technology forum at EMU. I think it went down reasonably well with everybody in the room - undergrad students, a couple of the teaching staff and one of the 'EMU groupies'. Whilst there was a temptation to rely upon my Masters proposal as the sole content, this would have bored a majority of the newbies to tears, so instead I decided to dedicate the first half to the research outline and elaborate on some areas of the research methodology; specifically that of examining 'focused listening' and the aesthetic of Alvin Lucier. The second half I think was more fun for all concerned as I compared Lucier's I Am Sitting In A Room with my own creative work-in-progress Tpot_(x) (formerly Tpot_1, but these kind of things always undergo changes.) All up it was about a hour or so with about fifteen minutes tacked on top of that for general questions, queries and observations.

I will update the research blog in the next week or so.
