Morning generative jam. Orca x Renoise.

This is a really simple patch that controls 10 randomized drum loops and two instances of Massive. In Renoise I have a bunch of LFOs set-up that modify filter, bit crush, and delay. It's rough in parts but I could zone out for several hours playing around with the foundation of this one.

"A Concealed Diversion"

Another looping scene set to generative audio from Pure Data.

The rotating texture outside of the window is a partly translucent plane with a BRIGHT light shining through. Backlit projection. Makes the scene feel a bit like an old movie set in my opinion.

Giving up on Pynchon. I see the appeal but his voice irritates me. Plus I'm just not in the mood for it. Picked up Murakami's Killing Commendatore and Knausgård's My Struggle Book Two to read instead.

Turned off boosts in the timeline and I dig it.

Diving into Thomas Pynchon for the first time with V. and the plot has my mind reeling. Unsure if it's intentionally labyrinthian or if my attention span is just damaged.

Going to start spending a bit more time here soon. Miss the slower pace of masto lately.

For those who stubbornly seek freedom around the world, there can be no more urgent task than to come to understand the mechanisms and practices of indoctrination.

Maybe a niche request: anyone have any recommendations on artists who specializes in retrofuturism? Thinking 50s comic book style kind of stuff. Looking specifically for landscapes.

Releasing a visual album consisting of 3D animated loops soundtracked by generative music created with ORCA, Pure Data, and Renoise. This is a snippet from the first one!

"Temporal Decline"

Anybody have good resources/guides on tech security practices (esp in activist circles)? Was searching CrimethInc for more modern articles but I'm not seeing much. If not, tell me your favorite tools/practices so I can compile the info into something more tangible. So many people still talk about sensitive things on Facebook, Discord, etc.

"Right now, all of the places we can assemble on the web in any kind of numbers are privately owned. And privately-owned public spaces aren’t real public spaces. They don’t allow for the play and the chaos and the creativity and brilliance that only arise in spaces that don’t exist purely to generate profit. And they’re susceptible to being gradually gaslighted by the companies that own them."
