I really enjoyed your article on Brian Eno on Rhizome.
I’m really interested in the application of cybernetic concepts within art. If you’re in London, I’d be delighted to give you a personal tour of my current exhibition at Tenderpixel:

I enjoyed your rhizome article. I teach a course at NYU’s ITP called sound and the city, and have presented on sound warfare at Ed Keller’s Shockwave Rider symposium, and found your article just now and wished I had seen it before.

Thanks, and if you are coming to new york and wish to visit the class or sit on the jury, please do let me know

I recently came so close to aquiring the original lp from 1982 SYNTHESIZING 1O RAGAS TO A DISCOBEAT but unfortunately it slipped away from me to someone who had more money at the time. What can you do…. such is life as they say

I’m enjoying your commentary — right now –in the Brian Eno: The Man Who Fell to Earth DVD. Will have to check out your book soon, as AGW has long been a favorite LP.

Your review of Goodman’s Sonic Warfare was very helpful; I’ll certainly have a read of your articles, as well.
