Here’s the last month of factoids to get us up to date.
I’ve copied and pasted these pretty much as is from the original emails, so some of the language might not make sense as it refers to conversations prior to the actual emailed information.
Digital Snippet#8: iBeacon

For the last few months I have been sending an easily digestible, digital factoid each week to several senior members of staff in one of the cultures venues that I work for.

My 2007 limited edition CD “Deserted Cities” is now available as a multi-format digital download through Bandcamp. The original edition included the main four track CD EP on a black CD, with additional remix tracks available on a separate 3″ CD.
Originally included in the Super Jewel Box case alongside the discs were sets of photo strip images and a brass sygil object.
The four tracks, created under the codetripper artist name mix analog synths and glitchy plugins in Ableton Live and use a wealth of archive recordings. Tabla tracks and beats created for video, snatches of shortwave radio and circuit bent electronics from projects that never reached completion.
I’ve added “Immersiv”, a newly unearthed track from the archives in this digital version of “Deserted Cities”
Digital download version of my limited edition codetripper “Deserted Cities” release available now on Bandcamp.
