Catch up on a bit

Its been a hectic couple of weeks. I was over in Paris for COST SID for a meeting which was very productive both at the MC level and in my working group which is concentrating on sonification. Here's a nice short example of a simple sonification of global earthquake data using Csound and Python.
You can see my full set or take a look at Frauke's set.

There are bits and pieces of news with Dan talking about the provisional driver debacle and his petition. I've going to be collaborating with Jurgen on a piece for the Two Places exhibition in the Ormeau Baths, Belfast and in UL. More to follow on this concurrent sonic installation later.

On the wider front there is a piece on MTV's ``Darfur Is Dying'' campaign, take a read. Use solar power to ensure a self sufficient arduino. The latest R News Volume 7/2, October 2007 is out. There's a nice article on the problems and limitations of using server logs for usability analysis. If you insist on logs, this article offers some advice on handling them.

O'Reilly have a nice article on ``DIY Surround Sound DVDs'', so its not the recording studio in the CSIS building but it might help! Scott Wilson has some nice software online including some gems like interleaving mono audio files into a multichannel file and SuperCollider VBAP classes.

A reminder to all that from 31st October you can register your own personal .ie domain (more details), or similar, without any of the silly numbers or crap that the IEDR used to insist upon. I'd recommend Blacknight but I'm biased towards high levels of competency with competitive pricing. I suppose supporting UL Alumni isn't bad either.
