I got sick of messing around with VCV Rack every time I wanted to use Turing Machine style style semi-random sequence generation, so I made a Turing Machine inspired Max for Live Device. I'm 90% there and it has true-to-the-original characteristics like throwing out awesome sequences except one horrible note that it should-be-but-for-some-reason-isn't possible to zero out.

I hooked it up to a couple of sine wave oscillators and a bass synth I made from sampling trucks downshifting on the freeway in the distance and here's what came out. Nothing amazing, but for a live beta test of a new effect, I'm stoked

@luka spotify is hellish, absolutely degrades art into focus-group consumer mood profiling. I hate Spotify and yet... I still use it because it's convenient.

tomorrow’s release is spot-on. one of those albums that spontaneously bloomed. feeling like all my hard work is paying off.

TFW u just wanna throw head back up into the sky and scream "fuck this shit!"

Analysis of a popular playlist "dinner with friends". "it's music for background". "a playlist that people put on and don't care about the music really"

I'm almost insulted one dares to say to a group of musicians. I'm appalled that musicians are not offended by that.

As a music artist pouring blood and sweat into your music, do you really want to use a platform that encourages this way of earning money / distributing your art?

'skip rate' on playlists.

Your songs should not have 20s intro, because people will skip it too often.

I'm not sure should i laugh hysterically or cry.

On a talk about streaming (mostly Spotify) realizing how fuxkedup the system is. It all comes down to power and gatekeepers just shifted.

"If I did not believe in the possibility of eventually defeating #capitalism and in a socialist future, I would have no inspiration to continue with my political work. [Capitalism] continually reveals its inability to grow and develop without expanding and deepening human exploitation. There must be an alternative to capitalism. . . . #Communism—or #socialism—can still help us to generate new versions of #democracy."
