Hey! If there’s been a short delay in blog posts here, it’s because I’ve just returned from being away for Thanksgiving break, to New York City! Here’s one of the highlights:
While I was there, Josh Gordonson, Billy Gordon, and I paid a visit to a nifty community invention lab called NYCResistor, where Ranjit showed us his nifty hacked player piano. We proceeded to get up to all sorts of tomfoolery with it:
“Yesterday Star, Billy, and Josh (from MIT & Brooklyn Poly) came by to visit NYC Resistor. They told me of their crazy schemes and brilliant plans, and helped me eat a giant slice of strawberry cheesecake.
When I showed them my toy piano and the new sound-processing code I was messing around with, they immediately asked why I hadn’t plugged in a microphone. I swear I would’ve gotten around to it myself… someday.
Thanks for visiting, guys – you’re welcome any time!
p.s. thanks to Isaac Schankler for help with the piano code; and we were both inspired by Peter Ablinger’s speaking piano.”
