The first release with my new artist name is there! It took me a while to get there, but I learned a lot and made friends along the way :triangle: antoinedemuynck.bandcamp.com/a

Hit me up if you have a media project that needs sound/music - games, movies, installations of any size, I'd love to talk about it :)

This year will be the year of risk taking for me.

Nice bit of live coding - like the simplicity of sonic pi, and this style of ambient music.

Someone asked me about sequencing in eurorack so I wrote some notes about it. electret.net/eurorack.html

The modular is out of storage! Managed to set it back up and working. Super limited setup but it has a square oscillator, a polivoks filter and midi input so that will work anyway 🔥

I do miss the playfulness of the modular synth though. I need to bring it out of storage and find a place to set it up again.

As I was rebuilding my website, I could see I did 6 music releases last year. Was feeling down about my music output lately but I should be proud of myself instead :o

the integration between vs code and wsl is nice :) Being able to work in linux world while keeping the windows machine (some software I use still requires it :( ) is fantastic.

On the technical side : I'm using windows + WSL and VS Code. Will report how the integration feels.

feels a bit funny that we all end up saying this kind of stuff, but while being not original, it's a good thing that we're slowly reclaiming personal space on the web.

I reached the middle of the book I'm working through to learn piano. It's really rewarding to feel the progress 🔥

While food is on topic, I'll take the opportunity to log my progress:
Started vegetarian flex (vegetarian at home, not full vegetarian outside) last year, and moved to full vegetarian (despite the very low support of parents/larger family). I hope to transition to vegan flex(vegan at home, vegetarian outside) at some point but this will take a while I guess. Stay tuned for my next food post :D

this, precisely this 👇

“We should not be haunted by the specter of being automated out of work. We should be excited by that. But the reason we’re not excited by it is because we live in a society where if you don’t have a job, you are left to die. And that is, at its core, our problem.” — AOC

words are chosen, psyches shatter—
mad libs are made all the madder.
Pale Truth ebbs from aimless chatter
when Horror's your reading matter.

Also they make Sour Patch Kids cereal now. It's surreal all by itself

I think this sentiment that one day, all art is going to be made by algorithms, really reflects society's belief that people who make art do so because they're uniquely good at it, and once something that is better than them, they lose their right to make it.
But fundamentally, art exists because people like making it. As long as someone out there wants to make art, there will be art made by people.

“No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination.” Edward Hopper
