    Sharing one of my favorite songs of 2020. I've never heard of this artist before I listened to their Wicked City EP, where this song came from, but I'm captivated and will definitely dig deeper into their discography. I love the glitchy, surreal second half which follows what could almost be a Sara Bareilles song in the first half.

    That sounds super cool! Are you most experienced with 3d printing, building things, or photography? Seems to be a neat intersection of a few disciplines.

    I feel the same. During my week of spring break, I got an email from my university that we'd have two extra weeks of break and resume entirely online after that. Those three weeks were honestly kind of...fun? But the novelty quickly wore off once school resumed, and things haven't gotten much better since.

    Oh my god, I didn't even think about the Impossible Quiz! Is there a ported version of that anywhere? I used to play that for HOURS in middle school but I could never actually beat it.

    Honestly, if it weren't for Mario Judah, I probably never would have listened to this album. But because of all the drama associated with it my roommates and I ended up staying up till midnight on Christmas Eve just to listen to the whole thing. Carti owes Judah a lot in terms of advertising at least.

    How did you like it? I think it's right in the middle between SILY and Wildflower. I don't think anything they put out will ever top SILY for me but I think they really improved upon what they were trying to do with Wildflower. Right now my AOTY is between this and clipping.

    Glitter is so good! I'm assuming you've already seen it, but I can never miss a chance to plug his Tiny Desk Concert.

    I just stumbled upon this track through a Spotify playlist: Cycles by Escape Mechanism. The track has fewer than 1000 plays and the artist has 20 monthly listeners on Spotify. It reminds me of the Avalanches; it seems to have sampled some interview and builds a song around the interview content in a really creative way.

    The story series is some of their best work IMO; I'd love for them to release a vinyl of the whole series in sequence. My favorite clipping. song right now is Club Down from their newest album!

    clipping. - The Deep

    clipping. is an experimental hip hop group, featuring Daveed Diggs of Hamilton fame on vocals. The Deep is an immensely interesting single released by the group in 2018. I highly recommend reading along with lyrics as you listen, as there is an impressive amount of world-building, clever wordplay, and allusions packed into these five and a half minutes.

    Just read a bit about To Touch, that's really interesting! To me Cardiff's work exhibits more parallels to some of Steve Reich's compositions, but I see some similarities to Roomful of Teeth as well.

    I'm glad you liked it! If you want to hear more, another favorite of mine that I'd recommend is Amid the Minotaurs.

    I thought I'd share some of my favorite music here, where most people probably haven't heard it. This is Roomful of Teeth, an eight-person vocal band who experiment with a bunch of uncommon techniques using the human voice. The linked song is the first movement of Caroline Shaw's Partita for 8 Voices, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013.

    What do you all think? I was absolutely fascinated the first time I heard this.

    Thanks for all the information! I'll start thinking of some programs that I could use and maybe try and eventually make them.

    I'm very late on this reply because I forgot tildes existed...my bad. But this sounds like good advice, I'll probably start looking into it when I have more time this summer. Thanks!
