It is with a garish and ludicrous benificence (pictured) that I announce: the application for my artist residency program “CTRI Innovations” is still open. Link in bio. It is an artist’s residency that takes place in the space of a conversation and lasts for 1 or more cups of coffee or tea. I’ve hosted over 100 of these residencies so far, and I think it’s been really helpful for some people. To others it’s simply a pleasant experience. Thank you to everyone that has declared CTRI Innovations “New England’s best artist grant or residency program”! The link is in the bio. If you have any questions about this go ahead

Very close to having a full set! If you have duplicates get at me- I’m not allowed to buy these online, only trades or in-person deals

Bach To The Future 7 was a huge success this year! Massive thanks to everyone that played, everyone who attended, everyone who stayed to see the night change to day, and to Sakiko Mori, Evan Raczynski, and Community MusicWorks! Here are the pins I designed for this year- the top one was a freebie (standard 1″ badge) and the bottom one was a special gift for the performers and anyone who donated $10-20. It’s a cool enamel pin about .75″ across, with glittery sunglasses ๐Ÿ˜Ž DM to get one! Or just hit me on the funding sites: venmo jacob-berendes or PayPal $10-20 postpaid for both pins. I’m also going to drop some off at Analog Underground. The money will go towards making next year even better! And if you played this year and didn’t get a pin please just reach out and I’ll send you one!
The backdrop for this post is an E Power Biggs church organ LP designed by Milton Glaser. Probably a lot of artists out there today have “Bach design” on their checklist, it’s my great honor to have this โœ”๏ธchecked off. I love Bach and I love BACH TO THE FUTURE! Thank you everyone!

Free pins for the last couple years of the Bach marathon. There was no pin for years 1&2 because I didn’t think of it yet and there was no pin for year 5 because I just forgot! This year in addition to the free pin there’s a fancy enamel pin with glitter, which will be a gift for people who performed and also for sale. If I have any enamel pins left on Sunday I’ll put them online but I’m not releasing the pics of that one yet, it’s too good. Bach is fun to draw- you just make a big fluffy wig with lots of interior room for thought crystals, then pour coffee into it. This year’s pin looks a little like Brian May but that’s not entirely wrong. Bach to the Future is this Friday, November 8 from 7pm to 7am. Feel free to check in and out at any time, but if you want a pin, try to get there before midnight- I only made 300 and I’m only putting one aside, for @finger_on_the_button . #bttf7 #bach

Bach to the Future VII starts this Friday, November 8 at 7pm, and goes until Saturday morning, 7am. This is a marathon performance of music by and inspired by JS Bach, involving performers and performances from across the wide field of possibility. It’s free and free coffee will be served all night. You can come and go freely, you don’t have to commit to the whole thing- the night is organized such that any concert-long chunk is going to give you a good mix of classical and noise and whatever. 100% OK to bring a blanket and/or pillow, 100% OK to fall asleep like a precious little angel. I’m playing at 6am because shit baby why not? This event is at Manning Chapel at Brown University in Providence RI. Sound off in the comments if you’ll be there! Also please list your favorite sets from years past, I want to know what rang the bell. ๐Ÿ””

Haul pic from CAB ๐Ÿ™‚ I was trying not to buy too much stuff but I couldn’t resist. Not pictured is the new @plslala collection that was the only thing on my list but it sold out! There was so much good stuff there, I wish I could’ve got everything. Thanks again everyone!

Good morning from the home of Leonard Richardson- sci fi author, long-term pen pal, and programmer of the video game robotfindskitten, a painting of which is seen here. Leonard’s book Constellation Games remains the primary work on alien video games, and his technical books RESTful Web APIs and the Ruby Cookbook are equally impressive, tho the Ruby Cookbook is not really about cooking with rubies, it’s a computer thing.
