Reminder that #novembeat is coming up soon! And now we have a website for it!

these days I fantasize about going into with perhaps a simpler task of going into my own breakbeat roots and just pick a breakbeat loop (plenty of them in the SAMPLES folder) and fool around with it for an hour everyday. then I brainstorm further to stream the whole thing and then make a video with a timelapse and off-voice explanation and then it just explodes and becomes a too big of a project.

oh well.

I negleted welcomes - please enjoy and take care of our localtimelines and this (hopefully) safe space for musicians and noisers of all kinds:

i was pretty busy to be able to take extra community care of this space for the last few months or so, I apologize! I'm happy to see that we are now at 24 users total, and the admin dashboard reports 21 active and almost 300 interactions this week. The Local timeline is now pretty alive, which is amazing. Personally I'm especially happy to see musicaly (or production) focused threads.


Cristobal de Morales - Officium Defunctorum, Missa pro Defunctis - Jordi Savall (from local flac file - 1h12m)

ps: also questioning the conection between and this , ah.

If you run a pyramid scheme with money they call it "evil", and "conniving", but you run a pyramid scheme with people's labor it's "entrepreneurship"

Okay, time to ask the internet: what are pre-1900 examples of 3rd person limited narration?

I'm trying to answer how much this PoV developed in tandem with (and perhaps in reaction to) cinema, as distinct from theater.

3rd omni/objective maps very well to theater, and has 2000+ years of recorded history — but what of the limited PoV?

HK government rescinds extradition law (one of 5 main protestor demands). our fundraising musical collection prolly contributed only infinitesimally to this effort, but still its a contribution ... (> $0.)

(also may have musical value outside of fundraising (for others to say))

nice work comrades!

Dobro jutro. (fotka je z včerajšnjega jutranjega sprehoda) #photography

I have this really great powerful machine here with loads of RAM, many cores etc etc, but Firefox tells me on a page that some page is slowing down my browser... how is this possible?

Also, today I learned some basics about patterns in . Powerful stuff, and so much fun!

I suppose I want to wrap my head around gate and triggers, more envelopes and MIDI next. But also, filters, buses and groups look like something I could do a lot with.

I caught some inspiration today, and now I'm fighting a song again that I started in February.

Trying to write longer verses that just four lines. Also, I'm trying to put something into verse that I find hard to put into words at all.

celebration time, my book, obnoxious joy 

OMG the book is real! Time for a serious post, I guess…

First, some practical info: I'll talk about the book on the 23rd in Eindhoven during the Dutch Design Week (hopefully with a little surprise). Hope to see you there:

If you live in Rotterdam, you'll soon find the book at Varia and Printroom or you can directly ask me. Otherwise you can get it online here:

I'd like to thank Freek and Josh from Onomatopee, who enthusiastically believed in this project. Geert Lovink and Raffaele Alberto Ventura for enriching the book with their sharp contributions. Federico Antonini and Alessio D'Ellena for the beautiful "managerial pulp" design. Francesco D'Abbraccio and Andrea Facchetti of Krisis, who made this happen in the very first place (l'edizione italiana è ancora disponibile BTW). There are many more people I'm grateful to, check page 6 to find out ;)

Norway's new offshore oil "mega-project", the massive Johan Sverdrup field, started production yesterday. It's expected to produce crude for 50 years, and produce 20 times as much CO2 as Norway's annual emissions.

So, I finally nudged myself to book my first session. Wow, that was productive ❤️ I'm going to book my next sessions right away!
