Yesterdays talks were good however the 10m evening concert was ace, – best so far.

Anna Fritz, RADIO IS EVERYWHERE IN THEIR DREAMS was excellent, compelling and beautiful.

Matthew Yee-King’s LIVE CODING was an excellent exploration of live coding with strong gestures and boldness.

Still have to finish presentation :)

Monday was a good day – first day of presentations

In the morning sessions, I really enjoyed the

A TOOLKIT FOR MUSIC AND AUDIO ACTIVITIES ON THE XO COMPUTER
by Victor Lazzarini, NUI Maynooth, Ireland

and

THE CYCLOTRON: A TOOL FOR PLAYING WITH TIME
by Dan Trueman, Princeton University, United State

This looked like a lot of fun and something I hope to use in the future. II also liked the architecture design of the current version using Processing GUI, OSC communication and Chuck DSP.

THRICE REMOVED by Brian Cullen was an enjoyable video work with an especially cool Coronation Street bit.

In the evening I went to the off-book ICMC and went to some TOPLAP Live coding at the BlackBox in Belfast.

Food as always good, Lebanese the order of the day no booze at all.

This evening was the opening concert for the icmc conference. Good concert with a strong Hudds showing 2 composers, 1 performer. Enjoyable works especially DIana Samspons piece at the end of the concert.

No hot water at the house, cold showers character building I guess.

Freebies: 1 bag ICMC chic, umbrella, mints, USB stick, mints and a cd plus the guide book

Magners Cider enjoyed on draft afterwards and a good Burger for tea good day – and almost finished my presentation. :)

Im at ICMC all this week in Belfast – yay though it is raining.

Am here to present a paper on wednesday – more on that to come soon…

Today sat through rehearsal and a sound check for the opening concert sounded.

Also found a great place for dinner, Scarlets

Found this today.

Looks like a great way to debate issues and develop ideas.
