Hi All! I’m back…formerly “sonofharris” on this board. I remember posting some of my truly terrible tracks in the listening booth and getting a lot of support and advice from this community when I was in college and just starting out. At the time I was an English major with no clue if I wanted to do music in any serious way. But anyway…here I am again! With a few more tricks up my sleeve, and about to receive my Master’s degree in Music Technology.
Well that was a bit of a jump in majors! Happens to a lot of people apparently. Welcome back.
welcome back then, glad to see so many people from way back when coming back to the forum.
Hey sonofharris welcome back
what’s your master’s thesis going to be about?
Hey! So it’s almost done actually and perhaps I will share it soon. It’s a piece of music using data sonification, Max/MSP, and modular synthesis to trace the patterns of declining insect populations over three decades in a particular dataset from Germany. Phew! The main element of the work was translating values from the dataset into musical patterns, complete with pitches, timings, and patterns of repetition.
