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)

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.

I'm so used to seeking out interesting worlds in the EM range with induction mic field recording I'm a bit surprised so far at these ultrasound recordings. Most of the things I thought would sound interesting are basically silent, and there are many weird ghostly things I can't pin the source of down...

Whew, the persistent engine-like sound in these first two recordings isn't the device itself... when I moved it away from the computer these later recordings are way quieter. This thing has an amazingly low noise floor, dang.

Taking some first looks at a few ultrasonic test recordings made with my new audiomoth at a 384khz sampling rate (!!) -- I see some ghostly pattern happening faintly around ~125khz in the first recording. This is going to be a lot of fun to explore...

Oh god I'm nostalgic for 2011 tonight. How did my life end so quickly? I'm trapped in this shitty adult world of my own making.

It is fast, it is easy to understand, it makes me feel happy.

Just made a first pass of the second most complex frontend widget (probably) for a work project in about 50 lines of vanilla js.

I'm feeling pretty satisfied with the world right now.

Last night I guess I melted a hole in my breadboard with an op amp. Whoops!
