hello! i'm nicola, and i make stuff by combining various A/V media and code at nonmateria.com

i like upcycled tech, asemic writing and weird fantasy/scifi

I'm not 100% pleased with the precission, but I have no drum synthesisers so it's the best I could manage. The track needed drums! Very much the direction I want to go in for the future though. youtu.be/PK7zN4povMI

finished my DIY monome grid clone! Wrote up a page about it and a page about the problems with 3d printing. Looking forward to making some weird programs and weirder music with this thing :D

“The hacker ethos once championed as a method of subverting prevailing power has become at last its greatest lieutenant … I am not hoping for programmers to organize as a class, not anytime soon – you dudebro losers haven't got the guts – but good software simply won't be possible until we accomplish at least that much. There will never be the time or money to satisfy the guarantees our ethics require until we demand them with all the power we possess.”
