on pretention - simpler is gooder

I just realized that last post about soundscape app for iOS sounded horribly pretentious. Wow. Not sure I’ll get to Thing Explainer level, but I’m going to try really hard to break out of jargon.

So. What I was meaning to say was that I’m messing around with a cool iOS app for making computer generated sounds (not music, but not noise). I want to try playing with it to see what kinds of sounds I can make with it, and am wondering about how those sounds might be triggered or changed based on signals such as people moving through a room or something else. I started playing with converting movement into signals and that kind of works. Now I need to figure out what to do with that data - what kinds of sounds or visuals might be interesting in response to what people are doing in a space.
