MACHINE MUSIC LIKE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD - Electronic Sound New genre alert! Well, maybe calling it a genre might be pushing it, but it’s definitely what we call in the internet/social media age ‘a thing’. It’s the sound made when you import a binary file into an audio app. We’ve been softened up to the idea of glitch for at least a couple of decades now. What’s new here is that the music is a by-product of code. The following piece, uploaded by Josh Keaper, comes with the following useful notes: When binary files (like EXE or DLL) are imported into some audio editor (like SoundForge) as raw audio data, they sometimes turn into weird and interesting music tracks. In this case, shell32.dll became an ambient progressive-noise track of 17.5 minutes (I’ve removed silent gaps and some noise), here are the logical parts of the track: Overall, such “music” will probably be a hit among the robots in the future (after the humanity is exterminated, of course). Here’s another, this one is the app MS Paint, which is incredibly musical.

Cornell University - World’s largest natural sound archive now fully... Designing logos for the color-blind The ability to see the full spectrum of colors in mammals is a relatively recent evolutionary development (appr. 50 million years ago). Mammals were among the last ones to develop it since our burrowing ancestors didn't really need full color vision. Lifestyle changes put an evolutionary pressure on mammals and the ability to differentiate reds from greens provided a new advantage by allowing animals to find ripe fruits more efficiently. Fetal development many times mimics evolutionary development. However evolution is always in progress. People with "normal" color vision don't see the full available spectrum of waves either. Can you read the number in the circle above? The most usual form of color blindness is the inability to differentiate between shades of green and red. Many famous people are colorblind, like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, former US president Bill Clinton, Mark Twain and the singer Meatloaf.
