Pianophase.com is a performance and visualization of the first section from Steve Reich’s 1967 piece Piano Phase. Two pianists repeat the same twelve note sequence, but one gradually speeds up. The musical patterns are visualized by drawing two lines, one following each pianist. The sound is performed live in the browser with the Web Audio API, and drawn with HTML5 Canvas.

perfect! I bought Steve Reich’s discography as a birthday present to myself last year, well worth it.

workplace update… like yesterday, today was me and some dudes who are all at least 15 years older than me, but unlike yesterday I’m actually working with these guys. they listen to radio 2 and talk about football on their lunch break which is taken at their desks.

Do you guys go for lunch together? just to see what I’m dealing with and was told that one time they all got icecream, at which point I almost pinged a guy with a rubber band. I’m already making fish faces as I walk down the hall. Fish faces at dear Alastair and Rupert is how I start to break them in… maybe I’ll buy a beyonce poster to put over my desk, though I suppose kate bush is a bit more radio 2 than bey

Being younger, a girl, not Scottish, and swimming in my XL hi-vis vest, I didn’t really fit in with the group of 40 year old male mechanics that fit into their XL hi-vis vests and spoke with thicker accents than I’ve ever heard. But then I shared my thoughts on Scottish independence and won them all over. ha
Then I took the bus to the train, and the train to home, for free. And all the bus drivers waved to me as I walked home from the station. But then I bought some real people clothes, ironed them, and put them away, which definitely added some age-points to my closet. What kind of person hangs up their trousers? Someone with a real-person job. eeek.
