Update, Round Two

17 March, 2012

Real-life drama and professional busy-ness have left me without much time or energy for blog posting, hence the lack of updates.  For anyone interested, I’ll be giving a talk on Touhou and gender issues at the 2012 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference (Boston, March 21).  Two weeks later, I’ll be giving a talk on theoretical approaches to Hatsune Miku and augmented reality tech at USC School of Cinematic Arts’ ZdC graduate conference (Los Angeles, April 7).

After the crunch is over, I’ll see about adding more content.  Until then, here’s an experiment in real-time crowd-sourced experimental music production, courtesy of MIT’s Media Lab: Patchwerk.  The mass is doing a pretty good job of dialing in some truly God-forsaken noise; I’m running the stream as background music while I finalize my script for next Wednesday.

    I’m actually quite interested in attending that talk in Boston. Do you know the specific place and time, and whether it’s open to the non-paying public?

      Wednesday, March 21. 10:00 am at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers.

      Unfortunately, though, it’s not open to the public. This is something that’s always bothered me about academic conferences — there’s a lot of talk about making academia more accessible and approachable, but not a lot of action.
