Transport Layer Security EP is out now!
"At the core of these tracks stands an inspiration of exploring machinic polyrythms and how they can be used to blur the distinction of what is really inorganic, or not. Below, however, this distinction of natural organism is a false promise, a blind alley, a dead end. We ... are all part of the same machinic phylum."
@kf happy birthday. Me too. And 45 as well ... Some coincedence.
@kf it took me a long time to become proficient with it. A month maybe. But, now everything else feels like contortionist misery. More or less.
Good morning fediverse and my posse #SoNoMuClub! Don't let Monday get you down. It's a new day, it's a new week, let's make a move! In any case, mucha 💙💚💜💛 to y'all.
Compilation series tries to establish a practice of thinking critically about access to, and distribution of, art. It poses a question: what is the frame through which we are allowed, and able, to access culture? How is it created, by whom, and can such frame of access be modified and transgressed?
LIVE STREAM TONIGHT 20:00 CET!
How do we generate meaningful connections with our contemporaries and comrades when our movements are restricted with measures against something like a world pandemic? How can we take care of our communities through digital networks? What kind of political space can and does digital streaming audio/visual art enable? These are only a few questions informing this collaborative work.
The remote online sound performance is created by two musicians and sound artists who have creatively met numerous times already in the context of Slovenian inter-media and contemporary art scene.
The performance will explore the sense of remote connectedness and networked proximity through ideas of aesthetic of streaming in a post-streaming world. Both artists will stream their sound to an IceCast2 server using libre Ogg/Opus codec and capture the streams from each-other for further processing and feedback loops from remote locations. Multiple mount points with low and high bit-rates will be used with intention to explore digital artifacts caused by compression.
Due to measures against the COVID19 pandemic it is currently not known what will physical locations of artists be. If the border between Croatia and Slovenia is open, it is probable that at least one artist will be situated on a Croatian island.

@luka thanks for keeping it running. Quite an enjoyable space.
Next month we are preparing a new release at #Kamizdat - a netlabel day compilation called 'Access Frame: Equity'. We were quite successful with contacting local soundmakers and it's a 20-tracker of various electronic genres. Today I finished my contribution. It's made with various tools: #SuperCollider #Renoise and portable analogue cassette players.
It feels good!
@luka I'm unsure I've ever experienced the alternative. But I remain hopeful.
@luka Love the noisy bits
@tim and I are looking for someone who's willing to make an "artist graphic" for our #bandcamp page - something that vaguely represents us. Our first collaboration album is ready for release. The tracks can be found here, though in a slightly different form than the finished versions:
We aren't asking for anything elaborate, just what comes to mind in the spirit of the tracks.
Mára - Here Behold Your Own
found a suggestion for this this on the fediverse. but, having been delayed in listening to it, I've lost the source.
Starting a new webradio show! If you want to share your music, let me know! https://lctrt.net/wiki/radio-roundup.html
I (finally) wrote about that remote stream at dawn from a remote location that I did about 14 days ago for [radio]CONA / Soundcamp / Acoustic Commons / Reveil as a blog post.
It includes some photos and the complete recording.
