White Man’s Burden

Davide asked me to make him some “tribal” music for a doco about Alastair’s expedition to Papua. Obviously the opportunities for gross insensitivity and cultural vandalism were impossible to resist. This was the outcome:

I had a very jolly time doing these, and was especially happy with the third track, which is both very upbeat and at the same time rather grim, but YMMV.

And Davide’s video is here:

Difficult Second

At some point there’ll be slightly better quality versions packaged up with a decorative booklet of the text snippets for download*. Not, obviously, because there’s any demand for that, but just because I feel like it. In the meantime, this has already had more listeners than UST

* Update: the whole bundle is here (on Bandcamp, like the UST link above, but you’re certainly not expected to pay for either), or you can just download the booklet.


My modelling software, BCMD*, which I somewhat discussed in the previous post, is now available to one and all via my group’s newly-minted web pages.

(Yes, they’re ugly. That is mostly not my fault, though I could probably effect some marginal improvements if I cared enough.)

It’s an early alpha release, so pretty rough. And though it would benefit from additional testing, chances are very high indeed that you have no conceivable use for it. But I said I’d post the link, and I am, if nothing else, a man of my word.

* Standing, as is nowhere else documented, for BRAINCIRC MUST DIE, though I suppose I will have to concoct something more neutral at some point…
