Work in Snap on displaying Audio. This is interesting because it provides a route for students learning about coding to learn about audio programming.
experimenting with sounds in Snap!

Ardour 5.12 released. This update includes updates and fixes prior to getting down to major work for Ardour version 6.0. A very sensible way to go about doing things when a big update is planned.
We've just released Ardour 5.12 with new patch selector dialog for MIDI tracks, better templates workflow, and more new features and bug fixes. We'll be focusing on v6 now, obligatory beans spilling: http://lists.ardour.org/pipermail/ardour-dev-ardour.org/2017-September/014254.html

Sad news...

He will be missed.

Technical, but very exciting. Could be a very efficient way to generate speech sounds, and particularly for repairing audio.
WaveNet: A Generative Model for Raw Audio | DeepMind

'This post presents WaveNet, a deep generative model of raw audio waveforms. We show that WaveNets are able to generate speech which mimics any human voice and which sounds more natural than the best existing Text-to-Speech systems, reducing the gap with human performance by over 50%.

We also demonstrate that the same network can be used to synthesize other audio signals such as music, and present some striking samples of automatically generated piano pieces.'
