I make machines to make music.
They're made of silicon and ceramic flakes on the inside, wood and aluminium on the outside.
I like electronics, 3d sound, modular synths, VR, cycling, transcendental meditation, infodiving, anti-gravity racing, strong beer, the white noise of the sea, the grain of wood, and weird plants.
Longing for Singularity.

There are countless ways to produce a line going from point A to point B. In my Gesture Sequencer, these are known as behaviors.
Currently, there are a little over half a dozen different behaviors, including step, linear, exponential, bezier, and a "glissando" mapping designed for pitches.
The example below is an FM oscillator whose pitch is being controlled via a gesture going between two notes. The jumps between the notes cycle through the various behaviors available.
The cycling is made possible through a new thing I made today called 'metabehaviors', but that's all I'm going to say about that...
there are examples in the /asm directory, the doc for the 666R is complete, 666RS is still in progress, so no complete doc yet
compiling and running it should be pretty easy, only dependency is SDL2.
If you need help, I'm here :)
preparing for a seven hour performance tomorrow for the opening of our new space, half hidden.
drone, hand-played and live-coded sysex to juno 106 to space echo.
stream will occassionally tour the building--- art and architecture and plants.
Reminder for projectionists:
The sun provides about 120,000 lumens of brightness.
some more #bytebeat with the 666R cpu, this one using 2 general purpose registers, always no ram, no stack. 43bytes ROM.
I can't remember who shared this link but it was really a fascinating watch and an interesting look into a different way of thinking about embedded programming and power usage.
hello friends! I'm having problems pushing to #sourcehut from Linux(Lubuntu). I set up and added a public ssh key, but when I try to push I'm getting a 403 error. Also edited my ssh config to make sure I'm actually using that key. Any clues?
doing some self-archaeology of projects... this one i liked a lot although i ended up using relatively "high tech" to make it - as we can infer, i was in my way out 😅

my largest hardware work so far, a 100 channels VCA matrix mixer, I'm feeling quite proud of this child :))) https://youtu.be/Vy0PYuuFQw4
Stayed up too late watching old soviet cosmonaut interviews and videos of alternative styles of motherboards and chips from IBM.
Started working on a #uxn playground type of site. I haven't got the assembler working in the web yet but most of the demo roms run!
Been a while since I had/took time to continue with the TI-99/4A restoration.
But today, at least, I got to the point where the initial cleanup and due diligence checks were done and it was reasonable to actually fire it up with it's original PSU.
It boots, at least! 🤓
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
