i'm in new orleans now, today i helped put in a raised garden bed next to @liaizon 's treehouse at litter bay
more handpan noodlings.
not sure how to explain it but i feel like i finally found 'my instrument' :)
i love playing synths but it feels important to me to have an acoustic instrument to build a close rapport with, i have dabbled in many but never felt quite at home.
we have some random instruments around the house that we use for sampling but i never felt so connected to any of them that i wanted to play them every day.
photos of me and a video feedback entity from my collaborative a/v performance with @andrei_jay and our friend irfan who isn't on fedi.
we had a fun and transportive show at phase space this past weekend. we ended up having it indoors, which we have never done before but luckily the basement turned out to be big enough and it worked out. i am still so tired though, and am taking my time to gather and edit the documentation. i will try to post a video or sound recording soon...
i have attained decent confidence in typing on my split keyboard with the dvorak layout and blank keycaps, which i use at my desktop computer daily. i also wanted to be able to use a similar layout with my portable computers, so i created this layout for the "preonic" ortholinear keyboard that i've been using with my raspberry pi. i figured labeled keycaps would be helpful since i will be using this one less often, and it turns out they look pretty nice too.
24 hours later... holy crap.
today i finally got a customized controller set up for one of my video devices: r_e_c_u_r by @cyberboy666 (https://github.com/cyberboy666/r_e_c_u_r)
it's made from a 5x5 key mechanical macro pad running QMK firmware.
before this, i'd been using a full sized computer keyboard turned sideways. this is so much more compact!
i need to write up more details on the http://scanlines.xyz forum soon.
it's a pretty sweet toy, the screen is animated by a lenticular filter.
it was nice to be out on the water today. now i am in a strange house where i am cat sitting in the woods next to this lake, and it's a bit weird because i don't know the people whose house it is.
