The other day I came across fellow Hive member @kencode and the project "Cast Garden" thanks to a post by @steevc which piqued my interest as I've been looking for ways I can do more with Hive, sometimes written posts aren't enough or even the right medium for some content.
One thing I wanted to do this year is spread the word about some very cool music technologies that I described in a recent post on my very own blog. I thought it would be a great idea to present them through the medium of podcasting, but would this be video, audio or a combination of the two? Well, that is something I am eager to explore.
Recently over on Mastodon, I've been following #patternuary that was launched by Alex McLean the creator of Tidal Cycles. The idea is to create a new pattern every day, so this could be a good starting point for a podcast, needn't be too long, just a few minutes each to get into the flow.
Live coding is an exciting concept, not new, it's been around for at least a decade but kind of suits me as a way to express my musical self.
You can find my Cast Garden page over at https://cast.garden/c/nicklewis and my first cast may just be an audio performance, no narrative because I need to buy some new kit, a microphone other than that built into my Macbook.
Let's give it a bash!
