jazzColo[u]rs: le discrepanze tra finzione scientifica e realtà pratica

In the interview with Han-earl Park in the current issue of jazzColo[u]rs (Sommario Ago./Set. 2015, Anno VIII, n. 8–9), Andrew Rigmore asks about the the balance of freedom and prediction in working with improvising machines such as io 0.0.1 beta++: In teoria è tutto aperto, free, non ci sono quasi pre-istruzioni, tranne la durata approssimativa […]

analog io

I’ve assumed that future versions of io would have a single board computer (or multiple SBCs) in place of the clunky and fragile personal computer. There was, however, always an alternative. Take the not-so-humble analog computer, a technology with a fascinating past and a (still promising) future. Given that io’s behavior is driven by an […]
