The new Flavigula album, "Jēmaraz", will soon be released by Submarine Broadcasting Company, a netlabel brimming with experimental musical projects of many kinds. We're happy we were accepted into their community.

However, I also made sure I could release the album to other arenas in different contexts, and thus I present to you all:

Do with and to it as you wish! I hope it is an enjoyable journey. Making it was quite an adventure.

After struggling a few weeks with mixing and mastering issues, the new album, Alläï is released!

I'd say it's quite different than what's come before, but I have a rather skewed point of view as the composer. I hope everyone enjoys it!

I'm really into homemade instruments. It keeps your mind sane to build sthg very special sounding from simple means, allowing one to do this with others & having us play really unique music together.
+ students of next door's grammar school do need input about both off-media culture as much as taking invention into their own hands, beyond downloading another app for smart phone.

Got ideas like this?

Inspired by @luka I bought a Fairphone 3, stripped it of its stock android, installed TWRP, Magisk and /e/os and am now running google-less and happy.

Hi! I’m very happy to join I’ve been on the Fediverse for nearly two years now & migrating from another instance (& had to send out new follow-requests).

Time for a re-introduction:

I enjoy & make electronic music & I’m very much into Live Coding right now. I also write experimental literature (mostly in German). Sometimes I teach in the field of media theory and history of technology. I’m constantly analyzing technical infrastructures, capitalist appropriations & the patriarchy.

They took away the log
so the bugs
buried underground

They dug beneath the dirt
and refused to
be found

They ate upon the carcass
of an old and
moldy wood

that fell inside the forest
where their roots
once stood

In more positive news dept., finally the USB gatefold has been manufactured! While I'm getting the proper 'pro' photos done in a few days, here's that 'I'm-too-excited-not-to-share-it' shitty photos of it. (they are 10€ via my bandcamp).

I wrote a short blog entry about migrating my html site ( to "static-generated". It's here:
The point was to mirror the gemini site as much as possible, and to parse the gemini pages and construct html from them so I only have to modify content in one place.

Let's highlight a few other thing for #BandcampSaturday, which isn't a thing yet but which should be the day you pick up a few extra things to thank Bandcamp for their work, if you can afford it.
And for that, it makes sense to go to catalog work - you picked up the artist's latest on #BandcampFriday - what else did they do? So here's some older stuff from the same artists I highlighted yesterday.
First, to Suzanne Ciani: my favorites of her are The Buchla Concerts 1975

@PatchNotes I've been experimenting with avoiding the sequencer lately. I landed on using clock dividers and attenuated gates to modulate function generators. the textural rhythm here is that. the more intentional melody comes from a sequencer.

Writing one's own static site generator is fun.

I finally got around to writing a shell script to keep my let's encrypt certificates up to date automatically on I procrastinated for much too long because ... well, I never sat down and "learned" shell scripting. I always dread having to spend so much time fumbling with syntax.

It's nothing special, but if anyone knows a more succinct or idiomatic way to do it, please let me know...

Hello! #introductions #introduction

I'm a musician performing under the name th4. I mostly use TidalCycles for my "professionnal" stuff, but I also play the clarinet and the electric bass on the side.

I used to be present on the Fediverse a couple years ago, first on the defunct instance, then on a self-hosted instance, but I left when the latter disappeared in a tragic database accident (which, to be clear, was entirely my fault).

My day job is being a PhD student in computer science (wow, how original), but I'll likely not talk much about it here except to complain about it.

I'm very enthusiastic about Pink Floyd, all of Steven Wilson's projects, dogs and all sorts of handcrafting.

Hope to meet some nice people on here!
