io 0.0.1 beta++, Blackrock Castle Observatory, 05-26-2010 (photo copyright 2010, Stephanie Hough)

Back, behind-the-scenes, I still have some articles in draft form that both detail the nuts’n’bolts decision-making processes in the construction of a machine improviser, and self-reflective critique such constructions, detailing the trade-offs and shortcomings of such an entity, and its design and implementation.

site update: web audio player

I’ve updated the audio player used on this site, and I’m gradually migrating this site’s pages over to the new widget. You can find additional audio recordings (with new widget) on a couple of other pages. I’d be grateful if you could give these a play, and let me know if you have any problems, […]

audio salutations for an arbitrary demarcation of time (rev. 2012)

If io 0.0.1 beta++ could want, or express a desire, I imagine that it would want to wish all of you a happy arbitrary demarcation of time: io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) and Han-earl Park (guitar). io, however, cannot want, or express, anything… io, however, cannot want, or express, anything…but Happy New Year from me! about […]

Baroque and Renaissance (audio clip: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Third audio clip (and final in the series) from ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) below: Franziska Schroeder (soprano saxophone), io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) and Han-earl Park (guitar).

impressive synergy (audio clip: io 0.0.1 beta++)

Second audio clip from ‘io 0.0.1 beta++’ (SLAMCD 531) below: Bruce Coates (sopranino saxophone) and io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself). Excerpted from the track ‘Discovery: Intermodulation’, the clip features Bruce Coates on sopranino saxophone in duet with the musical automaton io 0.0.1 beta++. One of my favorite moments from the CD, it’s a performance that demonstrates, […]

[More info on the recording…] io 0.0.1 beta++ (itself) with Han-earl […]
