These mixtapes by Mr Misty’s Big Adventure are a wonderful peek into the his brain. Number eight is a couple of weeks old now so you might have heard it already but it slipped through my net so I’m listening to it for the first time tonight. Mmmmmm…

I’m slightly wary of putting Birmingham-centric stuff on this site because this is supposed to be about pointing to things you can see/read/hear on the web no matter where you are. And, frankly, been there, done that. But it probably can’t hurt once in a while if it’s something potentially quite awesome done by people who have a bit of a web presence.
Here’s a bit of blurb putting things into context:
Node based programming artists have risen to the fore over the last few years as graphical programming becomes more accesible and capable of harnessing computer functions more easily. Support networks like ‘hackspaces’ and festivals like the Maker Faire mean that girls and boys alike have been sharing knowledge and indeed creating their own canon in digital art. The upshot of this tweakery is that people can make the most unique of digital creations from a fundamental level, no longer limited to what a piece of software has in it’s palette of filters and effects, you can now make your own software patches fairly simply.
It’s the live hacking aspect that intrigues me, especially with a collaborative edge.
