Machine-made synthesizer weirdness.

Doktor Future's modular synthesizer has been set up to send a real audio stream, 24/7. The analog modular synthesizer will be running a quadraphonic aleatoric patch that will change from day to day. (via Matrixsynth)

This is really cool. Dude's got himself a Capybara - I wonder if that's triggering things or if it's just the metalbox thingies driving it?

I am a lover of algorithmic composition like this - at its best it's a fine balance between intention and (hopefully happy) accident.

Hmm, it's been playing for 24 minutes now and I still find myself occasionally mistaking it for that FSOL song on 'Lifeforms'. Better than I expected, certainly.

It actually seems to be an mp3 stream.. well it plays with mpg123 on the command line anyway, using:


but it's cool anyway.

I believe that zonkout meant "real" as in "for real", not as in "Real Player". This is indeed a 192kbps mp3 stream.

And holy gawd is it good.
