Music

Three unrelated things to do with music:

1. I recently read 17 by Bill Drummond. I actually went to the book tour for this book in 2008, but did not buy the book at the time. Not that I bought it this time either, but found it in my local library. "All recorded music has run its course". I like some of the scores, such as 8. Take.

2. I've recently been listening to music on a bright yellow cassette tape walkman. I won it for being the 100th member on Bang the Borum. Here's the thread, in case you are interested in reading what was in it: The 100th Member Hamper. It feels odd listening to a walkman again, as it is something I have not done in years.

3. The Beam Festival, on June 24th-26th 2011, at Brunel University, Uxbridge looks like it could be fun.

Not only are there sound performances, interesting kinetic installations, such as the Ethometric Museum (which I previously saw in Oxford), but also workshops such as Psychedelic D.i.Y. Toilet Roll Goggles with Ryan Jordan, which involves DIY hardware hacking and stroboscopic lights. There's also a game of Cruel 2 B Kind happening.

A friend on twitter just tweeted about needing a tape walkman for this weekend and not being able to find her old one and going and buying one about 10 minutes ago.

I'm reading this and while its been a slow read its really really interesting

Sounds like an interesting book from the description.

Maybe cassette tapes are making a come back!

I liked those scores, especially Take, the death one, the school one, and the age one.
