How Generative Music Works: A Perspective

How Generative Music Works: A Perspective

An engrossing web installation about the history of generative music.

I really enjoyed this. It has an interesting interface too.

Beijing Silvermine

“Beijing Silvermine is an archive of half a million negatives salvaged over the last seven years from a recycling plant on the edge of Beijing. Assembled by the French collector and artist Thomas Sauvin, Beijing Silvermine offers a unique photographic portrait of the Chinese capital and the life of its inhabitants in the decade following the Cultural Revolution.”

It’s a pretty crazy collection. I found this fascinating.

Because it’s Twitter, it’s definitely making the rounds.

Well done.

Get In Shape

Get In Shape

A very challenging game.

The goal is to hit a key that they give you to keep your little square alive for as long as possible. Then at the same time, they’ll add a new “room” and a new key to hit, at the same time.

The goal is 30 seconds, in 4 simultaneous rooms, at the same time.

You spend a lot of time just figuring out what the key press actually does.

I “sort of” like this game but holy cow can it be frustrating.
