So the buzz has become deafening that this thing will launch like in the next 90 days with a 10.5" diagonal touchscreen, support for hi def video, ebooks, app store etc etc. I'm wondering if it will run any OSX applications and if any of our beloved music artitsts who are ardent apple supporters will incorporate it into their live shows. Should be cool to see how this evolves after launch.
New podcast: ON LISTENING #1. Thinking (through) the ear.
Curated by Arnau Horta. Music by Annie Goh. With conversations with Salomé Voegelin, Peter Szendy, Christoph Cox, Casey O'Callahan, Seth Kim-Cohen and Julian Henriques
To what extent is listening ‘thinkable’? Philosophical inquiry, deeply rooted in the visual regime, seems to struggle when it comes to theoretically coming to grips with listening and sonic phenomena. It is, after all, no coincidence that the Greek term ‘theoria’ (θεωρία) means ‘looking at, viewing, beholding’. This programme explores philosophy’s seeming difficulty in grappling with listening and its counterpart – sound – as a powerful deconstructive means to cut through some of the philosophical certainties that underpin classical and modern Western thought. Can we conceive sounds as objects, or it would be more appropriate to consider them events? How far can the phenomenological approach to sound take us, and how much can we rely on it? And what about new materialisms? Are they more useful, in hermeneutic terms, when dealing with sound and listening? These are some of the issues addressed in part one of ON LISTENING.
1:30 Salomé Voegelin - Listening as a tool to reconsider philosophical certainties and conventions.
6:40 Peter Szendy - The auscultating subject, power and the fundamental disimetry in listening.
20:50 Christoph Cox - Materialistic listening and the limits of a phenomenological approach to sound.
31:24 Casey O'Callahan - Sounds are not objects but events.
46:10 Salomé Voegelin - Possible world theory and listening.
58:21 Seth Kim-Cohen - Listening as a form of writing and inscription. Anthropocentrism versus Anthropomorphism.
1:09:19 Julian Henriques - Embodied listening as a dinamic mode of engagement with the world.

I just realized I could use an Ipad in the studio, what's the best one to buy if I want to use it as an outboard synth host?
How do you iPad owners integrate yours into your setup?
Do old Ipads run new iPad OS'es? Any caveats?
