Moving Into Bucks County, Pennsylvania
It is that time again. Time to move into another region of the country. I've loved living in southern California, but for professional reasons I have to move to Warminster, PA - a beautiful area of Bucks County.

Solar Energy in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is in the forefront of solar energy installations in the United States. Actually Mass is number 6 nationwide in number of solar panel installations for the year 2012, with 129 MW installed.
Who would think that a northeastern state would beat sunny states like Florida, New Mexico, Hawaii.
There are a few reasons why Massachusetts is growing so much - government incentives and tax breaks.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 24th, when Mies van der Robot and myself will be spinning some tunes at Factory People on South Congress. There's no special event or party, so it'll just be two geeks playing Kompakt records and Pet Shop Boys remixes for shopping hipsters.
What Mies will be up to....
by Mies van der Robot
First of all, go read AngryRobot's last entry if you haven't already.
Second, if you're wondering what will happen to the rare Mies van der Robot contributions...well, they'll continue to be rare, but in the near future there will be a Mies van der Robot music blog, at a location yet to be determined.
Here's the catch: this will be a blog about the processes of making music, not the consumption of it. No reviews, and no MP3s unless they're relevant to something being discussed.
Over the past few years I've been gradually learning the ropes of a variety of digital music-making tools, and I'm finally at the point where I begin to feel enough of a sense of mastery to start releasing my creations, and the lessons I had to learn while making them, and the insights I gained along the way, all into the wild.
As rare as my entries have been, I've actually been spending too much time writing about music instead of writing for writing's sake and making music for music's sake, both things I love to do. I've been "dancing about architecture" when I should have been architecting.
So don't expect much from the new blog, apart from an occasional glimpse of what's making my creative mind tick, and maybe a few works in progress. If that interests you, then watch this space for a URL in the near future.
As a preview of what's to come, here's something neat. This is a demo of a language created to enable programmers to make music in real time, while the audience watches the code on a big screen. Normally this is frightfully dull, because most programming languages are boring and arcane and full of erratic punctuation that makes no sense. Yawwwwwwwn.
