By the Borderline

The past couple of weeks I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Aalto University a course titled Multi­media Story­telling.

Three Illustrators

Three Illustrators

I promised couple of weeks ago that I show some things which have been keeping me busy — and thus away from this blog — so here is another one.

Zoom H4n and H1

No, this is not a test. Just a quick note on couple of small obser­va­tions which might be of interest to some. Been playing now with Zoom H1 for a while and it has immediately become de facto recorder for my work. For obvious reasons: extremely light weight and extremely simple to use. Amazing sound quality with the built …
