Zombies and Screaming Bananas

Yesterday was the official start of my second half of interning. Due to some university jibber-jabber regarding my course, I was required to alter the focus of my position for the second half of my stay, and as such, now have a bigger focus on writing content. As I said in last week’s post, I’ll …

Sound Extrusions: Interview – Between Sound & Light with Jiri Suchanek

You can’t have your glass half-empty and eat it too

I’m not sure that the title is exactly what I’m looking for in terms of thematic foreshadowing — but my life is full of mixed metaphors, so tough.

Connect Everything! (Introduction to MAX/MSP)

It’s time to think about the programming bit of the Sound Extrusions project — that will be the other quite adventurous part of the whole project! While I’m away for some weeks to Europe, during great late summer time in Moravia, with all sorts of fruits and berries getting ripe in front of your eyes …

This week I got to sit in on my very first staff meeting at The Edge – I feel more professional already! The meeting was relocated upstairs because Tegan and Beck gave an official presentation of the new plans for the website. It was awesome to be involved in the planning of such a big …
