to everyone who came to my exhibition at Common last night, in particular Ash and Xian for playing their records. I'll post some photo's up as soon as I get some.
Completely unrelated - my pals Simon and Tony (the Owl Project) are doing a thing in Liverpool which might be of interest to someone -

WORKSHOP Friday 13th February 2008 6pm

The Box, FACT, 88 Wood Street Liverpool L1 4DQ

£175* *price includes workshop & materials


m-Log Kit

Purchase an mLog kit and you get a full days workshop and all the
materials needed to build & customise an m-Log to your own spec!

m-Log is the latest development in Owl Project Technology; a powered
USB controller interface. The m-Log fits in the palm of the hand and is
made using this semicircular cross section of a branch (Just like the
iLog). Inside the m-Log is the muio interface ( ).

Available with a rage of built in sensor inputs (light sensors,
accelerometers etc) it has plug in and play compatibility with a wide
variety of applications, notably MAX MSP/jitter, SuperCollider and Open

m-Log owners currently include, Leafcutter John, Kaffe Matthews and
Thor Magnusson (IXI software) who were also involved during its initial
development. Get your saw* and soldering iron ready and join a
community of owners and start developing and sharing your own patches
to use on one of the worlds rarest digital interfaces.

During a one day session participants will be taken through
constructing an mLog circuit, drilling the holes for the switches,
building software audio instruments in SuperCollider and MAX MSP and
finally a little sanding and oiling.

Using minimal amounts of electronics combined with the simple and
flexible material of wood we aim to return a sense of the of craft and
individuality to the production of modern hand held technology. We look
forward to making and developing m-Logs with you.

* In the kit all wood will be pre cut and ready for assembly.

Hi Jim,
On the subject of logs, trees and all things organic, how are you getting along with Garden Funnies 2?
Does juggling Johnny along with your busy schedule mean it is on the back burner for the foreseeable future?
Hope you are all well.
