March against Extreme Unpredictable Weather Everywhere (EUWE) in Amsterdam - seems like there are quite a few people on the street despite the rainy weather.

March 6: Fit for the Future - University of Utrecht

The sound walk by Christina Kubisch that is part of the Sonic Acts exhibition is worth taking! I only managed to do part of it today, but will definately attempt to do the remainder later this week. It starts in the Brakke Grond, and takes you through various well known places in the centre.

And I very briefly saw her when I went out with the headphones - nice encounter after a long time since meeting her in Berlin in the Electronische Studio of the TU Berlin more than once in my time there!

It will feature a livecoded loom, and livesampled sounds from the loom - and it will be streamed in the toplap anniversary livestream:

yay, my performance proposal "Etudes pour le livecoding a une main" got accepted to ICLC2019. So ahead: practicing and finding a good piece to play (though I found some old Fredrik Olofsson performance, so I think I'll try that...).

and... software manuals and mapping libraries (in Pd) have been amongst the things I've read through. Attempting to abstract the knowledge and concepts that were put into them...

I'm at Terschelling on a self-organised writing&kiting retreat. So far 3744 words written, a bunch of graphs made, sections reorganised, half a book read, a bunch of more papers gathered and skimmed through, and a whole bunch of notes of things to write, discuss in the book somewhere, people to contact, and some ideas coming up in my head for future things to do (workshop concept: "mapping my mapping", as well as a format for describing mappings (software-independent).
