Hi, I’m a French game designer/writer working mainly in the serious game/edutainment industry.
On my free time, I develop my own video games and tools, compose electronic music, make pixel/voxel art, build keyboards, grow hops and brew beer.
Computers ate my soul.
Personal, pet death
This morning, one of my pet rabbits didn't wake up. It was quite a shock. She was perfectly fine yesterday.
A bit less than seven years ago, on January 1st, I found her starving in a public park, with a few other tiny, fluffy, white siblings, who were less lucky.
When I took her, she emitted an incredibly loud, gut-wrenching scream. A prey's warning to the rest of the colony. She's been silent ever since.
Now she's gone, without any warning. I don't know how to feel.
If you need one more mechanical keyboard, this one looks interesting: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lekashman/keystone-the-future-of-mechanical-keyboards
I really need to update https://lectronice.com/OS — add a grayscale mode, and maybe the stuff I’ve worked on for the past three years...
I tend to forget about it because it’s painful to update, and instead I set up more blogs, personal wikis, time trackers and other online tools to play with, but in fact, it’s already all of this, in its own twisted way.
I love when people discover it randomly since I don’t publicize it, but maybe I should make it my "official" homepage again?
I wanted to improve my rhythm skills so I tried Melodics... and I ended up subscribing for one year. Which led me to get a MPD218 because the 8 pads of my MPKmini weren’t enough for some lessons (and 16 are still not enough, a few of them require up to 64 pads).
I’m addicted. Now I guess the next step is sampling my drum to play impossible chords with my pads... and possibly add a bit of ORCΛ black magic in the mix. Seems like I’m finally back to making music.
Back from a medieval fair. Maybe it was the surreal blend of modern and ancient clothes, or the awe-inspiring choirs played in loop, or the actual Gallo-Roman ruins where it took place, or a couple of familiar faces I hadn’t seen in years...
At some point, I experienced an overwhelming feeling. Past, present and future overlapped.
I can’t stop wondering if in two thousand years, people will party in the ruins of some fossil fuels era megalopolis, disguised as the ghosts of today.
This is atrocious/awesome:
A true web design lesson, in a way.
Yay, LORN has released a new album: https://lorn.bandcamp.com/album/drown-the-traitor-within
@npisanti Great stuff! Definitely something I need to study. I’ve been thinking about coding my own tongue drum training tool, this could be a good start. I just wish I had a deeper knowledge of music theory because while I understand Pärt’s processes at a general level, many notions described here aren’t within my grasp yet.
Here's a rough draft of a solo steel tongue drum track I've recorded. It's sightly processed with a few effects, but otherwise unedited.
My goal is to turn this into a slower and much longer #ambient piece, around 10 minutes or more.
The video has a 64x36 resolution because I wanted to keep the file small, since Mastodon doesn't seem to support audio formats. I'd like to explore the the ultra low-res video idea further, though.
ok people of the fediverse, i'm going to play live and make a workshop with #ORCΛ in Turin the 6th of July:
PS: if you don't like me, you should come for Renick Bell at least =P
PPS: sad to have to put links toward the empire of evil, but there is no website for the event .__.
