Once again I’m revisiting the @Pinboard bookmarks I’ve collected during the course of the year, and picking out 24 of them as a kind of advent calendar – one for each two week period, starting in January.
Here’s the first for 2020: rudigermeyer.com/notes/2020-12-01-23-12-27

Future Books: From Flash to Podcast.
I collected some thoughts on the process of recasting @KlausIbJ’s Moonpain site in podcast form: rudigermeyer.com/words/moonpain-revisited

note

I had some fun adding maps and photographs to the latest episode of Moonpain Revisited – a little audio walk through the streets of Lisbon along with a few stories from Pessoa’s Lisbon recounted by Peter Poulsen (in Danish).

They’re displayed in podcast apps such as Castro (my personal favorite) and Overcast (also really good, and with a version for iPad) that support dynamic chapter artwork.

Apple’s Podcast App does support chapter artwork, but unfortunately only for images connected to chapter headings.

So for the best experience: Castro or Overcast.

I’m so happy that it’s been possible to make the wonderful material from @KlausIbJ ørgensen’s moonpain.nu site available in podcast form. Ep.1 includes Peter Poulsen’s essay on Pessoa’s Fictions, which I’ve found myself listening to repeatedly: poetiskpodcast.dk/produktioner/moonpain-revisited/pessoas-fiktioner

“Nothing in nature, no animal, no brain, works by executing an algorithm. (That’s what makes an algorithm so great – they’re a new idea.) An analogue computer is nearer to natural processes.”

“Language is music, and the music is concrete.”
Jonas Olesen has written a fine article about Lily Greenham on Seismograf: seismograf.org/artikel/sproget-er-musik-og-musikken-er-konkret
It’s all in Danish, but it includes a link to a lengthy interview (in English) with Charles Amirkhanian: archive.org/details/pacifica_radio_archives-AZ0017
