iNudge Rules. It reminds me of the great leonide.de exploratorium of years ago that I was obsessed with. This is my little version of patterns. You click on the boxes in the right column to see the patterns, and in the lower left is the volume curve. If it is dark but the button below it is pressed, I’ve muted that channel. You can click on the button and that pattern will turn on.

This is great as it allows children to create riffs and share them, and other people can mod them as well… does just what it says… allows children to explore sounds and music patterns.

Nemanja sent me this link for Mixcraft as a software product similar to GarageBand for the SongChild project. Anyone used it? It looks ok.

I am sitting in a brew pup in Montreal, and I overheard a conversation on this site. Looks interesting in relation to songchild: CRITICAL WORLD :: Thinking Globalisation Through Music The things you over hear at a conference.

Critical World is a virtual research laboratory that explores the relationship between globalization and music. As a web-based experiment in project-oriented teaching and research, Critical World provides resources for critical engagement with the products of global culture and creates a space for debate about the role of globalization in our everyday lives.

JuliaD told me about:

Music in ME - Projects to start music schools in the middle east - Music in all of us - 2006 Music in Me reaches people who would otherwise be deprived of music due to war and poverty. In the coming years the organization focuses on 23 projects in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria. These projects range from supporting the Arab Jewish Youth Orchestra and developing music education for children in Beirut and Damascus to launching a music school in Gaza and a Music Therapy Institute in Amman.

They’re actually hiring for their canadian office.

Alex blogs about Virtual Teams, right when I’m thinking of how to organize teams for my course’s main project using Song Child: “What does it mean to collaborate? I despise people who start out with etymological explanations, but in this case I’m going to take the cheap way out. Collaboration is pretty clearly from the Latin: together (co) world (labor) process. So, collaboration is simply “working together.”” Oh, wouldn’t that be nice.

Slashdot | Global Collaborative Music Experiment: “Last year, 165 bands completed the RPM Challenge: to record an original album (10 songs or 35 minutes) during the 28 days of February. The idea is to get musicians to set aside the barriers that stop them from working on their music and simply devote a month to getting it done. This year, more than 300 bands from around the world — including two groups from McMurdo station in Antarctica — have already signed up at www.rpmchallenge.com, and this time the organizers of the challenge have built into the site the ability for bands to share samples with each other. If a band chooses to upload a sample into the Sample Engine, then any other participating group can use it however they like. The possibilities for global collaboration are vast!”

Ah, this is a good thing. With Danny and I starting up our Songchild project this year, it is wonderful any time I hear people are finding new tools for sharing stories and songs.

KittyGeorge sent me this link to Soundart which talks about circuit bending, which seems to be the abuse of sound creating devices for creative ends… which are very pretty.
