"The UK is going to lead a #space mission to get an absolute measurement of the light reflected off Earth's surface.
The information will be used to calibrate the observations of other satellites, allowing their data to be compared more easily.
Called Truths, the new spacecraft was approved for development by European Space Agency member states in November."
Just getting into #OnlyConnect, which is strange considering my familiarity with other UK panel shows... and goodness this show is several levels above typical trivia quizzes, with the crazy amount of lateral thinking needed to supplement the vast general knowledge demanded
Still kinda buzzing after Saturday's performance @ the Victoria Concert Hall in #Singapore, a venue first for all of us musicians. Found out we got 400+ people over our two shows! Pretty great for raising the profile of NUS Electronic #Music Lab.
Finally finished #FinalFantasy Type-0 HD yesterday, after many interspersed breaks in my playthrough. Story is kinda convoluted and a bit rushed towards the end, but it stands out as a pretty dark title with its themes on war and death.
Juggling between 14 playable characters three at a time is something different, but you do eventually fall into a few favourites. Not sure if I'd do another playthrough though, seeing my backlog of games... 👀
Few more days to the Crossroads performance that I'm part of @ VCH in #Singapore! Imagine #electronicmusic blending with #erhu and a little pipe organ. Free #music concert, but you'd need to pre-register for tickets.
On my way to rehearsal for a fun collab gig in about a week's time: first time having a live instrumentalist - and an erhu at that - in this #electronicmusic setup
Meanwhile I'm trying to think of my next #music release, or more likely dual-release: perhaps one "orderly" album that has a unifying vibe, and one "chaotic" album that remixes the former into diverse styles.
Hoping that 2020 is a year for me to actually get a job lol, but also a year for me to develop myself more seriously in #music, aiming for albums and stuff (maybe even more gigs?)
🎆 cheers to 2020 hopefully not being too sucky 🍾
One of the few TED talks that stuck with me: the very fact that people cheered after uttering the term "multipotentialite" showed how much they resonated with the idea of seriously pursuing multiple interests, rather than sticking to just one speciality
Wonder how they'll implement this simultaneous performance in the club and in the virtual #Sansar space: will they be two distinct spaces only connected through the common #DJ? Or would the two spaces interact? (I imagine probably the former, but the latter is cooler)
Would be neat if we could extend this to other unfinished #music projects of various eras
English interview with renowned Japanese girl group Perfume on their relationship with technology, the feminity in their art, and the members' years-long relationship with each other
(Not sure if the label "J-Pop" fits them? They're more electro-pop really?)
Been keeping a eye on Media Molecule's Dreams - an ambitious PS4 game engine - for a long time now, and finally stoked to see a release date of 2020-02-14
Those familiar with the LittleBigPlanet franchise can see Dreams as the advanced evolution of that in many aspects
