Carrington rotation #2109 from April 12, 2011 to and including May 09, 2011
JUPITER : PULSE and POWER : Energy Utility
Project : We are building an energy facility to harness wild electromagnetism emanating from Jupiter and Io.
Soundfields and Compositions in the lab at the moment :
Time Dilation Experiments / (trip edit) 18 minutes, Designed for the background.
Two short studies for The Sweet and Existential Night : (We determined that we would compose our musics to merge with the emergency sirens that sound off so often in the night. Study one 51 seconds : Study two 59 seconds
The Sweet and Existential Night / 1 minute 44 seconds /
HELIOTOWN :_ZONE 111 11 minutes 02 seconds; Thinking edit, to be played at low volume; in the background
Ashcraft's Rain Barrel (movies) : I have accumulated 20,000 movies of microbes, mostly from the natural infall in my rain catchment, and hope to eventually create a Microorganisms of New Mexico Specimen Archive. Eventually.
Summer of Fires
Long lasting extraordinary drought continues to cause major forest fires in New Mexico.
