Invisable DAW

An all-in-one box for laptop recording which is the size of a laptop and attaches to the bottom of a laptop. This is so that it's just as convient as a laptop. I'm aware that laptops give off heat through the bottom but All-in-one boxes dont have enough electronics to fill a box that size so vents would be easy

the voice

Heard the call of the sea lion in person today. Anyone know if its possible to create an instrument which models the vocal chords? Vowelizing is easy but noone seems to be able to get the excitation sounds down.

rhythmic dissonance

just a thought: maybe dissonance is not just tonal its also rhythmic, conceptual,contextual. and maybe the "rules" span across them. for instance rhythmically one must know the beat in order to cognate syncopation there for it is necessary to establish a beat before or under a syncopated rhythm. is that anything like establishing a tonal center? do lyrics from artists like regina spektor or system of a down exercise contextual distance where they appear to be serious one second and laugh at themselves the next? establish, permutate, establish, permutate?

oldOS

[non-music]Someone should write operating systems to run on old computers so that once a computer is retired it can still have the functionality of a household appliance. for instance a 100mHz PC would make the perfect caller ID, and answering machine. baby toy? wall art? electronic fireplace? white noise machine?
