I’ll post the video when flickr finishes updating their video servers. Meanwhile, you can watch most of it on instagram.

Adam sent me some beautiful field recordings from his travels. I paired them with videos that totally don’t belong with them.
My bot pentametron and I made a book! Encomials: Sonnets from Pentametron is out now from Counterpath Press, as part of the Using Electricity series edited by Nick Montfort. It’s a collection of sonnets made up entirely of texts collected automatically from Twitter over the last five years or so.
Along with Nick and two other authors from the series, we’ll be doing a mini-northeast book tour next week. Pick up a copy at one of the readings, or you can order it from the distributor (and probably Amazon soon).
After ten years, I’m quitting the Instrument-a-Day project. I’m declaring this February to be COLLAB FEB, in which I will try to do as many very small sound/music collaborations as possible. Get in touch if you want to join!
I don’t think I’ll have time to make an instrument today, so here from a bus on the way back to New York is a selection of some of my favorite instruments from the last few years. I’ll try to catch up tomorrow.
