"When the unique is created, it also creates the creator.

The more finished goods become commodities, the fewer opportunities an individual has to generate new creation. The ability to mass-produce removes the opportunity for the great many to learn to produce at all. From such a thought, a future full of consumption-only hobbies might come as no surprise."

this article is gold. (maybe we can collectively quote the whole thing here on merv, lol)

Instruō put their module line in VCV Rack for free! This is a really smart and generous move :) Having a lot of fun with this right now! @modularism

Did some shooting for the video I'm releasing tonight. Couldn't resist taking some stills too, beautiful nature :)

So, I've decided to release the mini mix I recorded for VEMOM 10 on Bandcamp. It's been nearly 7 years since the last time I released something there, it was about time I guess...

This is a couple of tracks I'm still working on, made with the OP-Z, full of clunky live effects because I'm still quite new at this workflow. But it's been fun to make :)

@electret @TQ @flavigula I'm looking forward to the next VEMOM. I didn't know I needed it! This got me motivated to update my main Bandcamp, I haven't touched it since 2014 :)

@electret

Thank you for letting me be part of it! I was introducted to some excellent music. Sorry I couldn't stay for the whole show.

@ice @TQ

Really happy I took part to the VEMOM night, thanks to @electret. I'm not used to this kind of online event, and it was amazing to discover the music of so many talented people. I'm glad I managed to record a couple of tracks with a video, I got a truly warm and inspiring welcome.

And it was great to see works from @TQ and @flavigula :)

Asking for help, financial aid 

Hey everyone. I'm currently financially in a bad situation. I lost my job today, I have no money, I'm disabled and I can't buy food. If you could help, don't feel obliged to, but any help is welcome. Thank you, boosts appreciated.
