Kæphesten Pausens Musik vil ikke gå væk.

argument for being given access
My specific interest is in the field of poetry. Presently I have opened a discussion with Alex Rudnicky about prosody and Whisper, because I feel I may have something to contribute in terms of human breath-emulation, but as my idea of a learning focus for pauses based on duration-strong punctuation notation would have equal effect on both speech learning/recognition and learning from written poetry, if I am not mistaken.

I am a poet through 40 years. Music of Pauses as a notational system works for poets, who are musically inclined, as reading poetry this way respects all pauses as different durations, thus making music of such text – whether it is intended or not. It differs a lot from poets and readers, who only concern themselves with mental information – and therefore have no regard for indicated line changes. For me and “mine” pauses emulates the body, because it is extremely conscious of breath – how much breath is actually possible to house in an unbroken line. A very concrete example: When I had quit smoking, I wrote a poem containing a very long line that I could read in one inhalation. When I returned to that line many years later, now an active smoker again, I could not read it aloud in one inhalation. But besides such very obvious “who’s got the biggest lungs” competition, experienced use of breath gives the poet an awareness of tiny changes made possible in the experience of the text by breaking lines in unexpected places, thus adding 1 or 2 extra layers of interpretation to the text.

One day, when ChatGPT 8 knows similis and metaphors and subtext very well, having a system of pauses not based on analysis of textual parts, but indicated by the poem as a way to emulate the poet’s body and importance put to breathing – used much to dramatic effect or sparingly to maybe even greater effect – it might be able to analyse poems on a whole new level. And maybe even good novel prose too.

Der findes ingen farlige AI’er

– kun amoralske og dumme individer


Første erfaring med Bing Chat.
Censur på 2. spørgsmål. “Videre. Nyt emne.”

I ekstrem grad skræmmende. Intet med AI at gøre, men ALT at gøre med Microsofts censur af data.

En søgemaskine som Google har kæmpet HÅRDT for IKKE at censurere svar, og modstod længe enhvert pres som bevis for uafhængighed af politiske og økonomiske interesser, men over tid har USAs forfatningsdomstol, af copyrighthavere, pres fra egen regering, pres fra andre nationers regeringer, økonomiske konrkurrencekrav, hensyn til #datamining… gennemtvunget censur og rankering af søgeresultater.

Forgrønnelse, Naturby København?

Kære Line Barfod, 

Hvor jeg bor på Østerbro, går unge initiativtagere rundt og samler stemmer ind til at lave græs, hvor der er gade, under forudsætning af, at kommunen sløjfer 9-meters-reglen til vejs midte – men jeg har for nyligt været vidne til ankomsten af den største kran, jeg nogen sinde har set inde i en by (til nedhejsning af materiel i en baggård til brug for altanarbejde) og uden vej-hjørnernes svingningsrum havde den ikke haft en chance for at komme rundt om hjørnerne

The Light side of Dark

– The Dark Side of the Moon at 50 –


Fifty years since its release on March 1, 1973, Dark Side (the album) poses conflicting, perhaps irresolvable questions. Can you overlook the clichés of modern-day mass-market entertainment about the meaning of life? Or do snobbery and dismissiveness unnecessarily prevent skeptics from being able to take Dark Side at face value? Can’t you just turn your brain off and rock out to Dark Side sometimes?

Few, if any, teenage totems have come close to Dark Side’s longevity and reach. Its claimed sales are 45 million copies, making it the fourth-best-selling album of all time. It has spent a ridiculous 971 weeks on the Billboard 200, 741 of them consecutively from 1973 to 1988; both of those stretches are distant records. Pink Floyd didn’t succeed; it annihilated. By the end of 1973, they were multimillionaires.

“Something certainly did the trick, and [Dark Side] moved us into a super league, which brought with it some great joy, some pride, and some problems,” Gilmour said in Classic Albums. “You don’t know what you’re in it for anymore. You’re in it to achieve massive success and get rich and famous and all these other things that go along with it, and when they’re all suddenly done, you go, ‘Hm, why? What next?’”
