“Invisible airwaves crackle with life
Bright antennae bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price, almost free”
“Never play anything the same way twice.”
And in sharp contrast utilizing digital controlled unblinking repeated exactness:
Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a flexible, powerful, server-side application for playing music. Through plugins and libraries it can play a variety of sound files in a variety of ways while being controlled across a network.
Or in plain-speak… The music mix is:
- Take your collection of sound
- Add MPD
- Connect your Computer/Laptop/ePad/Smartphone whatever gizmo on your network/internet
- Using your connected device: Select play!
Then hear whatever your sounds might be on any of the sound outputs of the MPD device itself, or listen to the audio streamed onto your gizmo. All very cool for those well connected folk for which no memory stick can be big enough!
This is a simple example setup and demo of MPD in action as controlled by a variety of devices. This is also a vast underutilization of various computer devices being subjugated to the menial role of that of an old-style “IR remote control“!
And apologies in advance for my example unmusical sound files most likely being of a far-out eclectic taste
