In case you missed this on Wooster, watch this (presumed) documentary about Ztohoven:

Music from the Cat Haus

June 1, 2008

Some friends were traveling and briefly entrusted me with the epicurean welfare of Otis and Iggy Pop. These same friends also have a not-crappy piano, which I extensively used. Here are some MP3 files. Please excuse the high-frequency noise from the refrigerator, and the occasional cat meow.

(1) Mozart Piano Sonata in F Major, K 332, opening movement

(2) “Alpenglow” from “The Sierra Cycle,” one piece from my six-part piano suite

(3) 5:27 of controlled chaos

These noise machines. . .

Five art-related blogs. . .

December 6, 2007

. . . which I recently learned about, are listed below. Peter says everyone-in-the-know has been reading (and loving) these blogs for years, which proves that I live in a solipsistic bubble of science, spiritual transcendentalism, and Stevie Wonder cover songs.

Here are the blogs:

  1. Boing Boing : a “directory of wonderful things”
  2. “We Make Money, Not Art”: art, design, media, and a nomadic computer scientist.
  3. Warren Ellis
  4. Beyond the Beyond: by Bruce Sterling.  This blog also includes a healthy dose of scientific futurism.
  5. The Wooster Collective: a celebration of street art.  To my credit, I’ve been reading the WC for a while, but only recently added it to Google Reader.
