Gave my first listen as part of deeper listening to Blair Robert Nelson's works after his exuberant concert last night in San Diego (http://www.blairrobertnelson.com/2014/05/hackingimprov/)

I suppose this piece falls into the 2nd typology of "generative music", per http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generative_music#Theory and to me is reminiscent of Eno's "Discreet Music" which I must have listened to a few hundred times (sadly, same time each time) in the 1980s.  Riley's "In C" is hybrid combinatoric/aleatoric under the "random" influence of individual musician's choice of onset and duration for their assigned phrases. I am interested in the choice structure of the system that generated Nelson's "Palindromic D" though not necessary to enjoy this relaxing, evolving, and mesmerizing work.

The pulse here is identical to the iconic generative work In C by Terry Riley - original recording - Part 1 - perhaps in homage?  Kind of fun: play them together!  Were the pulse different a phase would emerge, but, alas (?!), none here.  Still worth the experiment...

More listening to this young American is on my playlist...

I've been testing feedly and newsblur but I find I still mostly use newsblur. It does have opml export. The big missing feature for newsblur is a search function. People have been complaining about it in the forums for a while so hopefully it will be added eventually. The other downside is that you'll end up wanting the premium option which is not free. There are plenty of screenshots in the blog: http://blog.newsblur.com/ . Looks like there are a few reviews and comparisons out there if you're interested: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2041011/review-newsblur-is-a-worthy-powerful-google-reader-replacement.html , http://www.theverge.com/2013/3/19/4119006/the-best-google-reader-alternatives
