Pinned toot

Hello all! I'm a computer musician and composer based in the US.

I created an open source python system for computer music composition called Pippi -- which is complemented by an interactive system for performance called Astrid.

I operate a sporadic netlabel called LuvSound (luvsound.org) and an ever-growing web radio station with a focus on generative music called Aleatoric Forest. (radio.af)

I'm also currently developing a web service for creating generative music cues for use in video called Cue Composer.

My dayjob is working on the fundraising system for the best radio station in world: WFMU. (wfmu.org)

My favorite next-door-store gag on Bob's Burgers:

"I'm getting too old for this schvitz - saunas for the elderly".

Maybe I should finally choose a license for pippi...

@paul would you still recommend unlicense?

Other options I'm considering:

- cc0
- just declaring it public domain
- anti-copywrite (mattin.org/essays/Mattin-ANTI-)

For context this is computer music software and I hate capitalism / would love to enable freedom while possibly discouraging capitalist douche-baggery. Mattin's "license" seems like the best fit for that, but I donno...

Moon Palace Books is an independent bookstore located just behind Minneapolis police precinct 3, the starting point of the riots. When the police tried to set up a barrier around the store they said no thanks and instead set up a station to give protestors food, water, treatment etc. They even hung an “Abolish the Police” banner in their window.

Please consider using this small business if youre looking for more books, they’re doing mail orders. Here’s their website. moonpalacebooks.com/

Fun photography tip: floppy disks are infrared pass filters and your mobile phone camera might be sensitive to the near IR that passes through.

I get overwhelmed so incredibly easily recently. I couldn't find my mailbox key today and it nearly brought me to tears. I hate feeling like this.

I’m already on season seven of Bob’s Burgers so basically I have accomplished a lot so far during the lockdown.

The reverberation of the room is really present too... I mean I guess this all makes sense but I'm just getting my land legs for thinking in terms of ultrasound...

Wow! I recorded myself speaking at 384khz, filtered out frequencies in the audible range, and resampled it 8x slower. It sounds like a large animal growling and hissing.

There's this whole section at the end of the third recording I made that sounds like a sort of otherworldly creaking wood. It's pitched down 8x normal but sounds like someone walking through a room. I wish I could remember what I was actually doing here... should take better notes next time.
