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

when I'm struggling to make music and I just feel blocked, I need to listen to more music, reconnect to what I like and why I'm doing this in the first place.

using a computer = programming the computer

the languages and interfaces someone uses might not be *cool haker babble* but they're still what you use to define what the computer should do

don't let the "tech is hard" meme fool you into thinking you don't know computers

I know I'm doing a lot of different / unfocused experimentations at the moment. I'm travelling a lot these days and these free form explorations help keeping me sane and relaxed.

One of my bots (artbrowsing@twitter.com) recently surfaced this beautiful French book published in 1839 on the topic of color perception. "De la loi du contraste simultané des couleurs" by Michel Eugene Chevreul.

You can browse the whole thing at the Internet Archive:

imagine this: your Zeus, god of thunder. people think you throw lightning bolts like spears. in reality you suck them up from the earth like spaghetti

@neauoire yeah, i don't know what to do about it. i talk about it like every day with other programmers.

Fantastical: "Use natural language to quickly create events and reminders"

me: "reminder 4:30pm Pet Barn"

Fantastical: *creates a reminder for "Barn" at 7:30am*

I'm slowly realising the hidden cost of a software engineer day job. All the libraries and tools I've built to be given up to a client instead of building them for my own use. I think it's possible to combine the 2 but I need to rethink how I work.
