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.

This.... is good. Cornel West on this moment in American history, on CNN.
Maybe I should finally choose a license for pippi...
@paul would you still recommend unlicense?
Other options I'm considering:
- just declaring it public domain
- anti-copywrite (http://www.mattin.org/essays/Mattin-ANTI-COPYRIGHT.html)
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. https://www.moonpalacebooks.com/

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...
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.
Vibration enthusiast. All hertz welcome.
I’m an anti-fascist. Fuck the police.
