Onion Head Monster and Subscape Annex invade Carrboro, 14 November

Paul Friedrich of Onion Head Monster and Hellcar fame is holding a reception this Wednesday evening at Wootini. Around Paul’s presentation, I will perform an improvisational live looping set of my audible vision concept, taking Paul’s posters for the exhibit and processing the graphic images as sound files, chopping and looping the samples.

See and hear Paul Friedrich speak.
See and hear Paul’s artwork.

When: Wednesday 14 November, 7-10pm.
Where: Wootini, Carr Mill Mall, Carrboro NC.

40 years of NCSU CS
39.5 years after I went to Raleigh to take classes in something brand new called Computer Science at North Carolina State University, I’m headed back — at least for one day. I’m giving the graduation speech for the Winter grads on December 12. The Department is only one year older than my experience with it so while I’m not from the very first cohort to graduation after a full 4 years, I’m very early in the program.

I only get, thankfully the grads to be are probably saying, about 10 or 15 minutes to excite, inform, educate and amuse the grads.

What would you tell today’s Computer Science grads before they go out into the world?
