Particle Physicists Share the Physics Nobel

davido42 Yeah, but if the LHC kills us all... (67 comments)

... then this will be the LAST prize in subatomic particle physics! So maybe they're hedging their bets.

IMO, the prizes should almost always be shared. Nobody works in a vacuum* --they are all building on the work of the rest of the community. Seriously, the number of scientists who understand this stuff is vanishingly small*!

* Wow, the comedy just writes itself...

Rainy Day Music

davido42 davido42 writes  |  more than 6 years ago (reposted from my blog at BitWorksMusic.com)

Finally it looks like the drought here in North Carolina may be abating! I might even take a shower. Someday.

This week we present you with a new avant classical piece from a FOB (friend of BitWorks), composer Eduardo Cervantes. The beginning reminds me of Steve Reich. Click here to download "Primrose Street" or here to stream without downloading.

A few weeks ago I made another excursion to the Philbog for an exciting evening of noisiness, industrial, and electronica. I would like to write more about this, and had intended to do so already (lazy!), but it's difficult to talk about music that falls far outside the usual constraints of genre and expectation. Elvis Costello said: "Talking about music is like dancing about architecture." (also attributed to various others, including Steve Martin, but anyway..) Talking about this sort of music is like dancing about architecture .. on Tralfamadore.


Keeping on...

BitWorksMusic.com continues to release albums and continues to redefine the state of the art in multimedia album downloads. We are still working on recruiting our first major artists. Just check back at http://www.bitworksmusic.com/ every week to see and hear our most exciting news and adventures.

That's all for now,


National Holographic "In the Near Infrared" Release!

davido42 davido42 writes  |  more than 7 years ago Today BitWorks Music releases the 2006 album from National Holographic, "In the Near Infrared" in lossless FLAC and high bitrate MP3 album download format, the Web++ edition including dynamic album graphics. National Holographic, here represented by Ted Johnson, Jim Dennis (of the Music loft, Carrboro, NC), and Jason King, have released 12 albums on Ted's Studio 713 label. We look forward to hearing a lot more great music from them.

But wait! There's more! (Did I really just say that?) There's a "prize in every box"! If we shipped our downloads in boxes, there would be a prize in the box, but we ship our downloads in shiny new .zip files. In every downloaded album (in this release as well as the latest Johnson-Hendrix "Space Probe"), there is a hidden vault of unknown treasures! This alone is worth (click.. click..tap) at least the price of admission. So far no one has uncovered the secret! OK, enough marketing tripe for the masses today. Click on the National Holographic link on the BitWorks Music home page. Click on Play All on the album and check it out!
