    More Ludwig Dresden Timpani 3D Printing Mods


    We’ve Got Stacks and Stacks of Letters Though it’s been a while since I’ve posted about my Ludwig Dresden timpani mods, I haven’t stopped tweaking them. My latest innovation is printing plastic letter covers that slip over small rare-earth magnets as part of my string gauges. This makes the letters larger and easier to read. […]

    Absence of detail and the value of ambiguity in art and education

    This post pulls together ideas about the value of ambiguity and space in art and education by drawing upon my diverse experiences as educator, artist, and musician. It wanders! In some ways, it is about creating room to wander. I hope you it connects with your own wanderings. Continue reading ?

    Mix ‘Em Up

    This assignment was one of my own creation, because I didn’t see anything quite like this in the ds106 assignment bank. It’s pretty straightforward: mashup two songs that are similar to each other (regardless of if it’s the same artist or if the artists are different). These are the details of the assignment I created, […]
