Nora O Murchú picked some of my dump.fm GIF pairs and I arranged them on an HTML page. The screenshot above is a shrunk-down, non-moving version. Many thanks to her for including my work.

Many people had a hand in the images that ended up in my Four Pairs (2012), but as the electronic duo Voice Farm sang in the 1980s, "It's my idea now."

Update, July 4, 2012: The HTML page I made for the show is Four Pairs, 2012. The optimal screen resolution for viewing is 1280 (w) X 1024 (h) or larger.

"Robot in Brazil"

"Robot in Brazil" [mp3 removed]

This is the tune "Percussion Reassembly" with added Brazilian percussion and electric piano (from the same sample kits used in "Tres Amingos"). It's supposed to be kind of funny, or at least droll. I could envision this as music for a videogame where a robot goes into the jungle to gather hallucinogenic plants. A talking drum hoots whenever he gets a healing assist.

Post Internet, the book

Belatedly realized Gene McHugh's "Post Internet" blog is available in book form. Also as a free PDF, formatted the same way.

Domenico Quaranta's Link Editions is publishing the book via Lulu. I ordered a copy and can vouch for the design and quality of the printing. I think I joked at one point that McHugh's work would end up as a book but it's actually my preferred way to read this material. The blog is pure text, often lengthy, and the handsome book format cuts the eyes and brain some slack so you can focus on the ideas, which are not slack.
