Hey, I’ve finally found a bit of time to put my tracks on Bandcamp. I did a bit of mastering, and came up with quick and dirty aesthetics I still rather like. I also had fun naming the tracks using a blend of bad translations, bad search engine suggestions and heavy text glitching.

I’m glad I did it, it was a great experiment and a motivating starting point for more musical exploration in the future.

Giving these a listen now. Lovely stuff. Reminds me a bit of Hang drum.

@RussSharek Thanks! Long story short: the steel tongue drum was invented as a cheap alternative to the Hang. I fell in love instantly with its sound when I first heard it and decided to give it a try. I've made a bit of progress since I recorded this, but I lack time to compose actual tunes, which I'd really like to do at some point. I'm still amazed by my own journey to learn a physical instrument after decades of using only computers.

@ice

I *think* I've seen these before. Do you have a picture?

(I find it interesting that people who really seem to dive into toki pona have a lot of interest in simple things outside of language too.)

@RussSharek And yes, I never thought about it but getting into Toki Pona makes sense when I look at what led me here... That's good food for thought.

@ice

I seem to have a taste for simplicity, minimalism, and steep learning curves.
