For those that don’t know, I founded Stet Lab, a space for improvised music based in Cork. I curated the Lab between 2007 and 2011, and during that time, also wrangled its online presence. In August, I will be removing some of the audio recordings of Stet Lab’s first year (prior to the November 2008 [...]
The original home of buster & friends’ d’da, music.calarts.edu/~hpark (originally shoko.calarts.edu/~hpark, latterly adagio.calarts.edu/~hpark) has shut down. That shouldn’t affect the majority of visitors to this site, but some of the older media files stored on adagio (mostly linked via the scrapbook, guitar-guitarist duet pages, and the archived io 0.0.1 beta site) have now been migrated [...]

The (provisional) project page for Eris 136199 (Nick Didkovsky: guitar; Han-earl Park: guitar; and Catherine Sikora: saxophones) is now live: Eris 136199 is the noisy, unruly complexity of composer, computer artist and guitarist Nick Didkovsky, the corporeal, cyborg virtuosity of constructor and guitarist Han-earl Park, and the no-nonsense melodic logic of composer and saxophonist Catherine [...]
I’ve made some changes to the design of www.io001b.com [details…]. Expecting the usual bugs and inter-browser problems, I welcome comments and error reports: contact me or leave a message at this post.
I’ve redesigned www.busterandfriends.com. The revamp is long overdue. Despite some changes behind the scenes, the previous design was more than four years old. There’s some new stuff, a few redirects, collation of previously scattered content (including a new Downloads page), and a new banner photo by Julia Healy. I expect the usual usual bugs, typos [...]

The (provisional) page for Numbers: Richard Barrett + Han-earl Park is now live. More to come including audio recordings and news about future performances. Here’s an excerpt: Richard Barrett (electronics) Han-earl Park (guitar) Numbers is a high-energy, quick-footed, scatter-brained two hander—a looping, convoluted, interactive dance made audible—a musical fender bender involving electroacoustic complexities and (physio)logical [...]
