104 phenomena

In Edinburgh College of Art, Interesting things, Rambling on December 24, 2012 at 5:51 pm

104 just from New York, and over ten days. So this really hasn’t been as impossible as I thought it’d be, although anything can be justified as a phenomenon. So there’s no real…connection between this set of phenomena, except vague location, a set period of time and the chance-ness of them all. That made no sense at all, I can’t think of the right word! (Like the other day when I forgot ‘side’ and said ‘not-back’ instead, made sense to me).

Sound: Landing at Heathrow

Back in Britain, but not quite Leicester and definitely not Edinburgh. Despite sleeping for about ten minutes on the flight back I’m about as perky as ever, if I’m very lucky I might fall asleep drawing (there’s a picture of me somewhere asleep on a drawing having flown back from America, I was a lot younger then though…). I’m probably still only awake because I’ve been working – layering up some of the sounds I have. I say some, I actually mean one. I don’t have my laptop with me (and no useful sound software stuff anyway) so I’m doing it all by iPad, so far so good. I might manage to get SoundCloud to cooperate at some point, but probably requires an actual computer.
