About listening to music

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Sometimes I like to listen to music, I listen to a song, which gives me a good feeling, then another and another. I feel really good, sometimes I could even dance, although I don’t really like dancing.

The latest topic where this is the case is the software Sonic Pi and making music by code, basically “music programming”. I played the recorder for many years, but I do not have a real feeling for beat and rhythm. I like to listen to music, especially electronic music, but I couldn’t make music myself, I would miss the musical feeling.

Make music with Excel

Published on in 🔗 Links

Through this article by The Verge, I discovered this YouTube video by musician Dylan Tallchief. He used Microsoft Excel to create a DAW (a digital audio workstation) called xlStudio. With that you can create entire songs in Excel spreadsheets and even export them to use them in the software suite Ableton. I don’t know much about music or music production, but this looks pretty awesome.
