So, here comes my new album.

It's a blend of heavily processed live RAV Vast recordings. I'd say it's quite experimental, mostly , though it flirts with while also having a few rhythmic parts.

I made it for myself, on a sudden impulse, with no other goal than to have fun. And maybe a little introspection. It's a mess, but a mess I'm happy with.

Hi, I'm a French video game designer/writer. I used to work mainly on serious game/edutainment projects. I'm now specializing in worldbuilding, my first love.

I've been dabbling in electronic music for many years, and I recently started to play the steel tongue drum/handpan.

Other interests include weight lifting, pixel/voxel art, beer/kombucha brewing, Toki Pona, mechanical keyboards, bad code and other nerdy stuff. Sometimes, I even try to make my own small games and tools.

Day 1: Other times, other places.

This is inspired by the first drawing I made for in October. Every day, I'll make a new track after each drawing in chronological order (archived here: tokipona.lectronice.com/d/26-t)

My goal is to get a draft of the soundtrack for the cyberpunk-themed game I'm working on.

No context sudden need to make a tiny game with jumping voxels and desaturated colors. I've no idea what it's about, except I named all assets in , and my mood was involving some kind of lazy melancholia.

I guess it could become a random walk in a quiet forest, with occasional dialogues and chill beats in the background.

The more I play non-violent games with no combat system, the more abhorrent I find games with combat systems. Don't get me wrong, both as a player and a designer, I love combat systems.

But the insane proportion of gameplay tied to violence, conflict and exploitation, and the fact it's seen as normal or even desirable in video games culture, make me feel increasingly bad. Is capitalism fun?

What about complex systems to explore empathy, ecological awareness, philosophy, utopia?

Am I making one-hour-long ambient tracks now? Yes, apparently. I've discovered a forgotten hard drive full of nothing, and filling it with massive audio files recorded by myself sounds like a great idea.

This is bad, I haven't played video games in three days because I'm making music instead. Please send help.

I was pretty sure I'd do absolutely nothing productive today, but it seems I've made a track.

Once again, no idea what genre this is. Somewhat lo-fi hip hop, but too much bass to not remind a bit of dubstep, though not dubstep either. It's pretty slow, at 70 bpm, but it sounds oddly faster. Or maybe I'm too used to it now... Anyway, that was fun to make. I'll probably still rework a few things.

Every single time I try to make music in a specific genre, I end up doing something entirely different. Apparently, I'm now making some kind of glitchy lo-fi hip hop with a retro synth vibe. Go figure. I'm having a lot of fun though.

OMG it just worked :) I had to mess a bit with the command line and figure out the dependencies, but I have a basic beat playing on the Rytm.

For some reason I have no grid displayed in my terminal. It's here, but not visible unless I select it with the mouse. I guess I should maybe install something fancier than the LXDE terminal? What would work best for Orca?

So far I've:

- Found my Pi 4 in my unsufferable mess of cables and forgotten treasures
- Also found the keyboard, the mouse, the screen and my old MIDI adapter (which is bigger than the Pi)
- Booted it but everything looked kind of broken and slow
- Burnt and installed the latest DietPi version
- Managed to set up a working Wi-Fi connection
- Installed LXDE and Firefox

It seems to boot just fine. I'm now about to setup the terminal version of Orca and see what happens.

Feeling in dire need of more chaotic music making. Thinking about setting up Orca on my mostly unused Pi to control my hardware gear.

I believe I already tried this long ago and miserably failed, but I can't remember what happened precisely. Probably something about MIDI output I couldn't figure out.

Exactly 7 years ago today, I released v0.0.1 of RPG in a Box. It now stands at a critical fork in the road, and everyone's help is vitally important in allowing me to continue its development. (1/13)

Boosting this for other timezones. I feel weird boosting my own posts, but apparently people seem to like my stuff, so... 😅

My new album is almost ready, but I can't decide if the Bandcamp featured track should be the first one, which is nice but very short and followed by a long experimental piece, or the fifth one, which is probably more representative of the whole album, but is also, well, in the middle.

I mean, I'm not sure if I want people to jump straight to the second half of the album, it doesn't really make sense. I'm probably overthinking this...

The end of the world is near, Pye Corner Audio is making happy psychedelic songs about the sun now.

It's time! #Pebble 1.0 is officially out!

It's a strange little text-only modular music engine, and I'm very excited to share it with you all!

Time to stop messing around with my various tracks and attempt that full album mix. I think I'll just approach the whole thing as a bigger track made of long samples. Technically, it's nothing more than that... I just hope the process won't show me the tracks with a different perspective and make me hate them.
