The grass may be greener on the other side, but if you’re a #minimalist, you don’t need a lawn anyway.

"People have a habit of trying to find patterns and repetitions. It gives them a measure of comfort. Catch phrases are hooks for people to relate to a character by knowing that they have something minor but consistent. They can be embraced or reviled at a whim (for an example of reviled, I offer Steve Urkel’s “Did I do thaaaat?”) allowing the general public to play off the most shallow of characters."

Don’t let your emotions get in the way of your results. If you feel bad but do good, then next time can be even better.

"Part of the concept, at least in my mind is to let the machines do what they are good at – and that includes randomizing in ways you might not have discovered yourself. This is frustrating to some users but is a large part of the joy to others."

I wish there were “novelty syringes” so we could inject ourselves with shots of seeing the world anew, being amazed at every little thing!

Future Sounds Of Seattle

▓▒░ NEW TORLEY MUSIC ░▒▓ “Future Sounds of Seattle”, a multi-dimensional incursion into this iconic #cyberpunk city: http://bit.ly/XensMd

Along the way in life, I immersed myself in Seattle culture… thinking about urban effectiveness and efficient commute routes as to avert some dystopian cyberpunk future. On the optimist side, I heart how the city looks at night, with the skyscrapers and sodium lights! From the heart of Chinatown to the night life of Capitol Hill, I recorded sounds from my trips, and I felt inclined to collect my expressions and share my emotions in an epic musical composition.

This is a deeply textured tapestry in the format of a “DJ mix” that twists and turns. I turned the now-all-too-familiar ORCA “tap here” machine beeps into a catchy melody (@ 1:44). I included found sounds of public transit doing its thang before I boarded. There are even sly references to things Seattle is known for, like Microsoft and Nirvana! Listen richly!

Here it is, then, “Future Sounds of Seattle”, a 12-min. long homage to my travels in Seattle, presented in five movements/moments:

(1) 00:00 - The most efficient route
(2) 02:54 - Downtown walk after dark
(3) 04:56 - Fusion canon
(4) 08:08 - Cyberpunk grunge club jam
(5) 10:10 - In transit to another adventure http://ift.tt/YQeC9h
