My Kind of Beauty

A place to me to dive a little deeper about computers, science, math, art, music, or whatever else I want.

My name is Aaron Tagliaboschi. Here’s some stuff I’m up to:

Writing

I really enjoy writing. I’m still fairly new and trying to find my stride, but it at least makes me happy.

Blog

I write in a blog sometimes called My Kind of Beauty, where I put thoughts and musings about me and myself. I want to start writing more technical articles and deep dives, but I haven’t yet. That’ll probably be it’s own thing though…

Here’s some of the more recent posts:

You’re Not Visiting
Take your shoes off. Don’t wear your hat at the table. If you want a snack, you know where the pantry is.

The Urge
I’m pretty sure there isn’t an easy answer, and I’m almost certain there isn’t one answer. That’s not gonna stop me from ranting though.

Nothing is Finished
It’s a lot easier to start something to finish it.

Music

I play jazz piano and other stuff (but mostly piano and mostly jazz-adjacent).

Here’s where you can find various recordings

Releases

I’ve also released an album called Time Enough that I’m incredibly proud of.

Sidenote: I’ve been very pleased with DistroKid as a service, so if you’re looking to release something everywhere and think DistroKid might work, here’s an affiliate link

I was a guest musician on my good friend Martha Christian’s Christmas album, All Will Be Well, where I arranged and and played piano (and midi vibrophone) on a slightly different take on Silent Night

Livestreams

Here lately I’ve been live streaming on YouTube myself playing piano, improvising, analyzing, and making improptu arrangements live on the spot. You can also find other bits of improv and music there as well. I’m trying to develop it a bit more as I learn on the guitar.

Web Toys

Every once in a while I make something small or silly (another thing I’d like to do more).

Here’s a couple hosted here:

Average Response (Code)
What does averaging the HTTP response code of every request sent from Firefox mean? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Fireworks (Code)
A small visual demo I coded live for a hgih school class demonstration
AMTunLimited (Code)
This very website is a playground for me, as well as an attempt to make as minimal a website as I can that’s still sharable.
TTT-js (Code)
A demo of the minimax algorithm by way of a really inefficient tic-tac-toe AI

I don’t really do social media, but there’s a RSS feed for my blog and a mailing list (linked below), and all of the various music platforms have subscriptions. Drop me an email if you’ve seen anything you liked, and peace be with you.
