My Thoughts on Tidal Music Streaming Service
Eargasm – Gooo by: TNGHT
So Tidal failed like me and most of the media predicted. Oh well hopefully Jay-Z can think up a new better idea next time.
Check out my thoughts on Tidal here.
So what happens when music, graph theory and network theory meet. An awesome way to coordinate automation for music. Although I’m posting this while on bus via phone I’ll try my best to explain this. First for non sound engineers, automation is where you change a parameter, such as volume, as if you had an imaginary hand turning a knob as the song plays. This is seen in the program as a simple graph like the diagram as the top to the left of the bar (well, its a simple, directed graph since it moves forward in time, which comes in play near end). The second graph right of the partition is what I call an “isomorphic superposition”. Lets break this down. Isomorphism in graph theory simply means that all the connection between points are exactly the same when two graphs are compared. Superposition is fancy for placed over top off. What I do is draw original graph, then draw a second graph starting from beginning of the first BUT I draw the second graph as if the 2nd point in the original graph is the beginning. What this does is gives me the ability to see how the original graph will progress relative to any point simultaneously. It also creates subgraphs related to the progression of the original creating automation patterns that tie multiple parameters in predictable patterns because of their relation to each others movement. (I can also make pleasant sounding melodies and counterpoint if I map this to notes but only if they are within the same scale. ) Finally the last part the big box at the bottom. In network theory, it studies the connections between points in a graph. The number of connection a point has is called its degree of connection. The special feature of directed graphs is they has inputs and outputs. This tells us how many points progress to a given point (input) and how many possible points the same point can move to (output). The big chart is called an input/output matrix and map ALL possible connections between points of a graph. “I” is input, “O” is output and the zero with slash means impossible because self referential loops are impossible in real practice using automation. Blank spaces mean there is no connection but still possible. The amazing thing is out of the 729 (27 squared the area of the I/O matrix) possible connections between the 27 points. there are only 66 I/O connections in this example, reducing unrelated information by over 10 times saving the engineer time instead of trying all possible unrelated or related connections . Sorry for the dense article hope it leveled up your math skills.

Sonnet 2: Self-made Psychosis
By:James Revels III
Suffering from my own affliction,
I’m looking for a diagnosis
Because I’ve been lacking my vision.
I can’t seem to find my self-made psychosis.
With the onset of new drama,
You will certainly find my disease.
Sneaky little prodromata
Hiding within me.
Tiny Life changers
The lazy analyst
Doesn’t understand the danger.
I give myself my own prognosis,
That one day I will die of my own self-made psychosis.
Here’s a poem from my poetry book “Yesterday’s Tomorrow” titled “Self-made Psychosis”. An embed to the book trailer, a link to a FREE sampler and link to buy the book.
