How to Play the World's Largest* Homemade Synthesizer

First you have to get friendly with MIT associate professor Joe Paradiso, who has a sort of 1990s-Robert-De-Niro thing going on, and then you have to stand in the rainbow spiderwebs and press a bunch of buttons, not to get too technical. (More here.) The synth — officially the Massive Modular Synth — also gives off a perpetual audio feed that Paradiso changes up every few weeks. It's beepy!

*Known. Huger secret synthesizers could be anywhere.

I love the sound of old-school synthesizers SO MUCH. It makes me miss college when I would stay awake all night listening to Star's End every weekend. I can still listen to the podcast during the day, but it's just not the same.


oh hey! I met this guy once! It was at this fancy Media Lab symposium. No one could really figure out what I was doing there.

At the lunch I sat next to a very intellectual German guy and I didn't know what what to say to him, so I said something about Derrida and he seemed happy and talked for twenty minutes. I don't actually know anything about Derrida.

And this other professor took me up to his office and showed me a simple graph upon which all human experience could be charted.

And I heard Nicholas Negroponte talk about One Laptop Per Child.

It was all pretty fun.
