That is too good! Would it work for mere mortals too?

Music Glitching Sounds like this! (now with added link)
What is music glitching? how does it feel? Trippy psychedelic sound - shared consensual auditory hallucination with the help of technology

Interesting post and very well put. Thanks for your tweet about it. It made me think... 

For me, how to balance privacy with lifelogging is a very interesting conundrum. It's getting harder and harder to avoid being tagged by other people online, but if you don't have a presence at all, your reputation is in the hands of those others - how does one navigate these waters? 

I use social media as part of my work, and though I am essentially being filmed a lot of the time as part of my day job  - I really don't like being filmed without permission or knowledge. Because of this I am always mindful of the implications both for myself and others when I share online.

I find the ephemeral/experiential/interactive nature of streaming  compelling. Though I don't feel the need to publish my every waking moment, I definitely do enjoy my new Periscoped Monday Night music/chats very much. Perhaps that usecase, i.e. educational/entertainment/interaction is suited very much to what I do at the piano, and other usecases will work for others.

End of think! I am now following you.
