We love randomness at Kaboodle Sound – by embracing the unexpected in field recording or using dice and cards to generate music, for example. Following on from our post last week, there’s a nice, short article in Quanta magazine today about how randomness can also assist mathematicians with solving very complicated or otherwise impossible problems. It’s always exciting for us to see crossovers with mathematics, music and randomness that coincide with our own experiments and research!
Here’s a bonus ’90s classic by Lunatic Calm, who most people probably know from ‘Leave You Far Behind,’ used in the lobby scene in The Matrix :
An interesting article in Quanta magazine today about how patterns can be found behind even the most random shapes and processes:
Composers and artists embracing randomness and chaos (as we do here at Kaboodle Sound) have often recognised or exposed underlying patterns in their work, either accidentally or intentionally. It’s always nice when the scientific and the artistic find these kinds connections and common points of reference.
Received these fantastic dice today, and wanted to share the seller here. If you’re looking for original and inspiring gaming/RPG dice, I highly recommend Critical Treasures on Etsy. Check them out! We bought them for generative, random music making amongst other things, but use them for whatever your random needs are!
