Paperless’s Steam Engine Time

Nov. × ’11

After posting my writeup about giving a paperless presentation, I’m seeing all sorts of follow-up everywhere. Which is how many of these things work. While this article about running a business from an iPad is a serious (and unrelated) workflow, the opening paragraphs gets to the crux of why I’m interested in exploring giving a […]

Paper Sans Paper (mk 1)

Oct. × ’11

One thing about my presentation in Belgium that I’ve separated off, mainly due to it being only of interest to nerds, was that I did it entirely paperlessly. Unless, of course, you include the sizable copse that was felled in the process of writing the thesis that the paper was based on. This was primarily […]

The Belgian Emissary

Oct. × ’11

Two years ago I made my senior circuit debut as a musicologist at the 2nd International Conference on Music and Minimalism in Kansas City. I really can’t imagine a better place for me to have done that, since it was perhaps the only moment possible where major scholars would have tolerated a rigorous pitch analysis […]

Jan. × ’11

Well, this is closer than last year anyway. And it’s always good to improve, right? Presented a paper at a international conference, and it was about video games. Nice. Started home brewing beer, because I have a lot of free time that needs to be filled with hobbies Lost a dear friend, but he will […]

A Musical Dramaturg

Mar. × ’10

Last weekend was the university’s annual Jakobsen Conference, wherein all the graduate students get together to play house conference and have a bang-up interdisciplinary time. Maybe it was due to having significantly fewer nerves than last year, but it didn’t seem nearly as well attended. This could have been due to the conference not really […]

Illadelphia Halflife

Nov. × ’09

I knew better than to even pretend that I was going to liveblog the AMS conference. You end up talking to people until 1 or 2 and there are papers you want to see at nine in the morning, a couple days of that and all you want when you get back to the hotel […]

Return and Recognizance of the Gripping Tyranny of Clock Time

Sep. × ’09

So much for my attempt at a La Monte Young/Terry Riley kind of title. The Second International Conference on Minimalist Music is almost a week into the past now, but that means I’m beginning to have a bit broader view of the proceedings. There are all sort of fiddly, bitchy things that I wish I […]

Conference Call

Sep. × ’09

This last period of radio silence has been filled with all sort of interesting foibles which will hopefully make for some good writing. The most pressing of these foibles is that I am presenting my paper “A Postminimal Analysis of Julius Eastman’s Crazy N***er” at the 2nd International Conference on Music and Minimalism at UMKC […]

AMS Happened A Couple Of Weeks Ago

Nov. × ’08

I wasn’t originally planning on doing a post-op of my maiden AMS experience, consider I thought that the general populace would find it boring as shit. However, an entire meme has passed me by with nary a tag and thus I realize that I should chop-chop on the posty-posty. Henceforth, what I learned on my […]

Sit Out A Couple Plays

Oct. × ’08

I really should just write this apology post and link to it everytime since it’s always the same reasons, but it’s such a classic of the medium.Earlier I posted about one of the trifold reasons that academic blogs, especially grad student ones, tend to fold. Around October or Novembertide all the academe on these Intertubes […]
