I may soon have some news about some music releases under the name 'emergent.' Stay tuned.

Speaking of music. Go here, and check out some tracks by Aleatoric, who lives in British Columbia. Just click on each release, and that will take you to a page where you can listen to it. I especially recommend xaenytx chant , and climb as well. They're both kind of not your typical techno type of stuff, and perfectly encapsulate what I love about beautiful and listenable electronic music.

So, here's a new website I found, called createdigitalmusic. It's pretty cool, and is full of neat stuff, like this (it seems that Reed Ghazala is writing a how-to book about circuit bending). Although, it is a tad on the mac-centric side of things, it seems.

Amjad Faur once told me that Reed Ghazala sent him a few components from a destructively circuit-bent radio, because Amjad was one of the few people to actually order a tape of the said creative destruction. I think that's pretty cool.

Also, here's some neat pictures of a recent live performance by Steve Roach. I wish I had been there. If you haven't listened to Steve Roach's music, you should. It's transcendent. He creates these soundworlds that just take you into a completely different headspace. I've never seen him live, but I imagine it must be a blast.

These are two of my didgeridoos. A didgeridoo is an Australian wind instrument, usually made by termites when they eat out the center of eucalyptus trees. These, however, are not eucalyptus. One is bamboo, and the other is some hardwood from Indonesia.

They're a lot of fun to play.
