Still in my quest of an affordable 2nd hand polyphonic synth...
Digitone, Virus (are series before TI a good choice?), or Micromonsta (if I can find one) ?

Je découvre cette compilation de vingt-quatre morceaux francophones parlés-chantés, collectés par le rappeur Rocé, avec des extraits de discours bruts de décoffrage comme celui de Jean-Marie Tjibaou :
« Nous sommes des hommes ayant une culture. (…) Si on ne la montre pas, on pense que l’on n’existe pas. »

Just did a little climbing session, after a long time off. I forgot how mental it is :)

Lion's mane (Hericium erinaceus) on brown rice. This species fruits readily in vitro, making it an excellent candidate for low-tech, home-based cultivation.

Lion's mane contains two classes of aromatic compounds: Hericenones and erinacines, able to cross the blood-brain barrier & promote bio-synthesis of NGF (Nerve Growth Factor).

"erinacines have potential as medicines for degenerative neuronal disorders such as Alzheimer's disease and peripheral nerve regeneration."

When you buy vegetables like pak choi, you are buying a plant. So treat it like a plant. Don’t dump it in the fridge where it’ll wilt after 3 days. Put it in water where it can stay alive and healthy for weeks.

Eventually roots will start to grow. After you strip off the outer leaves for your dinner, leave a few of the tiny inner leaves. You can then plant it and leave it to grow back.

I don't post that much here these days, but I wanted to say that I still enjoy a lot reading here.

Merci :)

Have you spotted the Wolf Moon tonight?

Algonquin tribes of the northern and eastern U.S. named the first full Moon of winter the Wolf Moon, from the packs of wolves that howled amid the deep snows of winter: 

I may get a Zynthian (very good hackability/space/price ratio).

Any other suggestion for a "cheap" (but good)polyphonic synth ? Where should I look ?

Very intrigued by this machine, the NDLR (I'm pretty bad at harmony/music theory). seems magical to me :)

Meh, my tx81z (the only polyphonic synth I have) is midi-dumb... can't control it directly with the octatrack.

Our @NASAExoplanets mission @NASA_TESS has found its first planet with two suns , located 1,300 light-years away in the constellation Pictor. A @NASAGoddard intern examined TESS data, first flagged by citizen scientists, to make this discovery: 

Hi fellow keyboard lovers,

Does an Ergodox fits someone with small hands ?

I'm looking at Ergodox, Atreus and Redox

In early 2017 I was tired, and disappointed, and about to leave federated networks. Then one amazing Fediverse user reminded me of the remedy:

"Learn to rest, not to quit".

Perhaps someone here needs this advice now.

Hey, I’ve finally found a bit of time to put my tracks on Bandcamp. I did a bit of mastering, and came up with quick and dirty aesthetics I still rather like. I also had fun naming the tracks using a blend of bad translations, bad search engine suggestions and heavy text glitching.

I’m glad I did it, it was a great experiment and a motivating starting point for more musical exploration in the future.
