Ursula K. Le Guin‘s Folk/Electronica Album Can Teach Us a Lot About Storytelling #SciFiSunday
Great read from Erin Bartnett on Ursula K. Le Guin‘s 1985 album Music and Poetry of the Kesh, which accompanied the release of her book Always Coming Home, featured on Electric Literature.
Le Guin’s novel Always Coming Home tells the story of the Kesh, a tribal civilization of people living in a California of the future, after an apocalypse so far in the past nobody can really remember it. Part of the novel tells the life story of a woman named Stone Telling, but it is also a giant assemblage of poems, maps, artwork, anthropological texts, plays, and music that illustrate Le Guin’s ability to make up a whole new world and its archive all at once.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
