Pinned post Sound Noise Music mastodon instance.

We welcome active musicians, songwriters, algorave livecoders, digital signal processing hackers, bedroom producers, writers of choral music, under-the-radar music selectors, exotic instrument explorers...

We'd like to stay easy and modest in numbers, hope for a quality local timeline and network with high S/N ratio.

climate, webdev, rant, looking for something else 

I hate my web developer job. No time for unit testing, no time for documentation, no time for creativity or nice algorithms.
Just use whatever trendy JS {front,back}end framework, ship high bandwidth, heavy, soulless sites in no time.
The mere consciousness of it from my colleagues are jokes between two crypto bs talks. The climate catastrophes ahead are literally a joke to them.
I hate that I contribute to this and I want out.

Does anyone here have experience going from this kind of job to a more engineering-focused, ethical one? Tips? Interesting reads? I'd love to hear about it!

Boosts are appreciated!

It's apparently Martin Luther King day in the US, so here is Letter From Birmingham Jail, which I think is the most important thing we, as white moderates, can read about him:

#genuary2022 Prompt for Day 17: "3 colors"

I was debugging some curves, and these patterns started to emerge...and I fell in love with them. So, I took it further, turning my visual debugging into art.

I've posted some thoughts and more images on today's challenge:

Hello there,
I'm new here, so thanks for having me.
I like to think I make music but you'll be judging that.
I live off-grid and record on solar powered equipment.
Here's a little taste of my new concept album:


Some bits from part II:
• “UNIX was, by 1980, without a doubt the most widely and deeply understood trade secret in computing history.”
• “… sharing produces its own kind of order: operating systems and social systems.”
• “… being ‘open’ is perhaps the most complex component of Free Software. It is never quite clear whether being open is a means or an end.”

One of the most fascinating human mind limits to me is our inability to focus on two separate things at the same time. Interestingly, this limit is also present in computing where CPUs process a single piece of information at a time.

Even if you add more CPUs, they each can only process a single piece of information at a time, and synchronization between each other becomes its own separate task.

This tells me by analogy that human cooperation may be hard, but it's essential to progress on multiple fronts at the same time, even with the necessary synchronization overhead.

To survive, build networks, not bunkers.

Having fun with granular synthesis a la Alik (, using a collection of saxophone samples and my own little tweaks... the amazing thing is that this is ONE synthdef, no single effect added to it other than modulated granulation...

Yesterday's rabbit hole: Using a stack of LFPulses as LFOs controlling the amplitude of LFPulse, then adding a bit of crossover distortion and a bit of tape saturation and a lowpass filter with a slowly and randomly shifting cutoff, then a bit of reverb and voila:

you are not listening (music) because you try to understand what author did (and why and how). you are listening to it because it's telling you something about you and your world.

Artwork in progress about technology and more-than-human impacts 

From November 2021 to February 2022, I have been working on a project about the nonhuman voices that were uprooted from Poulaphuca in Wicklow, Ireland, when the valley was flooded to create a hydroelectric power station.

My work is using philosophy (Simone Weil, Vinciane Despret, Donna Haraway) to look at the unintended consequences of technological development on nonhuman critters in the area.

it's quite weird, for the last three days I keep coming across references and/or videos on Joe Rogan, and it's ... just so f*in stupid. What a waste of my eyeballs' attention.

Did some big updates to the grammar for these past few days. In fact, to my knowledge it now covers everything in sclang except for two features. I honestly never thought it would come this far.
