Copenhagen Marathon

This was the second marathon road course I've run (after NY) -- while the course was nearly flat, it was challenging because of:

  • Lots of people going through many narrow sections,
  • Curbs you could step off of wrong if you were not watching your feet (I partially rolled my left ankle in the first mile, rude awakening. Felt it for the next 10 or so)
  • The warm weather (mid 60s and sunny, the sections in the shade were pretty pleasant but in the sun you cooked!)
I wasn't prepared for this race in general (signed up for it a week or so ago), and wasn't optimistic about even finishing (the last month had seen no runs over about 5 miles). I positioned myself between the 3:40 and 3:50 pace group balloons, figuring I'd start by running 9s.

For the first half (and after my ankle rollover especially) I just hung out with the majority of the runners I was near, running 9s as planned. I didn't see too much passing, but maybe it was subtle? The first half went in just about 2 hours, and a bit after I stopped to stretch a little, massage my right calf (which had been getting tight on longer runs causing tendonitis in my ankle, which is why I hadn't done any long runs in ages), and my left ankle seemed to be fine, so I kept on. Around mile 20 I realized that a) I was going to finish, and b) I was actually feeling pretty good considering (my HR had been 130-140 or so the whole time), so I decided I'd run some 8s when the crowded course allowed and get some of those newfangled negative splits, which was successful.

Other notes:

  • Seeing Al and friends on the course was awesome.
  • Swimming in the harbor after was incredibly cold and perfect and 10/10 would do again.
  • Aid stations have signs ahead of them that say "OPEN BAR 100 meters ahead" which I find hilarious.
  • Aid stations use a ton of plastic cups.
  • I carried a backpack with me which turned out to be handy (extra water, ended up having a liter or so -- the aid stations were few and far between and as a result crowded and difficult.. but even if I stopped and had 2 waters + 1 energy drink at each, I would've still finished very dehydrated).
  • If you (like me) are not too familiar with Copenhagen, you don't really notice the loop in the course, because by the time the second time comes around you're in full "make this shit happen" mode.
  • The dry-bag backpack that they gave everybody is a fantastic perk, especially given how affordable this race is (compared to NY at least!).
  • Copenhagen is really lovely. <3

Long Overdue Post/Super8

HAPPY NEW YEAR, READERS!

My super8 live looping setup got put away for the Red Hook Open Studios shows in November, and I forgot about it. Then I went out of town for a bit (finding some trails to run and warmer weather). Today, I set it back up. Oh, how I missed you, super8 and instruments.

(Hobbyist) Music Delivery

I've been recording 1-3 hour (occasionally longer) sessions of music and posting them to the internet as bigass .mp3 files for about 15 years now. As the quality of the music has steadily icnreased, I've also been looking at ways of making it more accessible (very few people can commit to listening to 2 hours of a single mp3). So after the last session, I thought it would be nice to mix it into individual tracks, naming them as I edit the session.

What I determined was that individual tracks were great! I thought about it some more and decided I could have both, generating the bigass mp3 files and indexing them (much as brainal.org does, but more intelligently. And then I realized I could parse the .RPP (REAPER project file) projects from the last 12 years or so, and generate a list of songs (from places where it was clear everything was edited) for each session. It doesn't work totally reliably, as there are plenty of places where two or three songs flow into eachother. But that's OK.

Anyway, so you might have noticed on this page the full jam links have been replaced with individual song/supersong links. We've been going through naming them as appropriate.

The other nice thing about this is that we can pull these feeds into our band websites...

OK so this has been a lot of fun. Two things -- one: I'm really happy with how this song came out a few weeks ago. It's about 2/3 improvised but a theme we've played a few times: (youtube link)


Second, we had a very enjoyable session Friday night:

REAPER: AVS's Spiritutal Successor - or - Decanted Youth - Light Creeps In (WIP)

I've been working on REAPER's video rendering/processing pipeline, allowing video processors to access and share memory with JSFX and ReaScripts, and exposing some new APIs for things like FFTs. It's pretty low-level, the JSFX/video processors are responsible for a lot of stupid work like synchronizing with eachother... but: the key thing is that we (REAPER users) can now effectively build things like AVS into the rendering pipeline, combining video and rendered audio and rendering that to video. I find this really awesome and exciting in the way AVS was, and in a way that has been missing for a long time. And now we can render AVS-like stuff directly to YouTube videos.

To explain: why is this like AVS? AVS had two key things that made it really cool:

  • You could build complex things by putting simple things together
  • You could also write complex things in code (making those "simple things" a little less simple).
  • (I'm bad at counting) (ok REAPER doesn't really address this -- AVS was cool because awesome people made tons of awesome presets for it. but REAPER's made for creators, so I guess we don't have to fulfill this one, so two things.)
REAPER does this too -- you can use video material directly, or one of many video processor presets to do basic things. Then you can also do the second thing by coding video processors (or hacking existing ones) to do new things. As an explanation, the effect in the video below is a combination of an existing preset (the spectrum analyzer), and a little bit of code (15 lines or so) which transforms that into polar coordinates (I could save that second bit of code as a preset for re-use later, including on a video file, etc).

The future is awesome. Now if only the present could catch up.

(youtube link)

Addendum: I'm irrationally pleased by this bit of video processor code I spent far too long on, for converting HSV (360/1/1) to RGB:
function h6s2i(h) global() ((h -= floor(h*1/6)*6)<3 ? <1 ? 1-h : 0 : h<4 ? h-3 : 1);
function set_hsv(h,s,v) global() (
  h*=1/60; s *= v;
  gfx_set(v-h6s2i(h+2)*s,v-h6s2i(h)*s,v-h6s2i(h-2)*s);
);
Also here's another video from testing that I meant to post earlier:
