TFW resident advisor reviews a release from your label

It has taken me a good while but I finally got done with it. I released my new album just yesterday. If you're into stuff, you might like it:

@luka I have a few friends/acquaintances back in London who're in fairly successful bands/and or run indie record labels and shops, and they've always been vocal about how much Spotify has fucked them all over.

Me and my partner mostly listen to shows on WFMU and then grab albums on Bandcamp when we can; we've been super jazzed to see Bandcamp grow so much in the last few years.

did you know that web UI has OCR built in? so when you are posting screenshots of text, a transcription of the text to put into a description of the image is literally one click away. when uploading image into a toot, just klik 'Edit' and then 'detect text from picture'. that's it.

please help sighted people. it's costing you two extra clicks.

@luka Almost every photographer tags and describes his/hers photos in CaptureOne, Lightroom ... with $photographer, $description and $title. These data are in the photo in the EXIF/IPTC.

FB, Insta ... strip this data - incl. copyright - to obfuscate the origin due to business reasons.

Unfortunately, the Fediverse has joined this folklore.

It is also not fair to visually impaired people. (

Furthermore any processing (again) on external machines cost energy/CO2 ...

All right, creatures of earth.

Did you find any good music this year? What did you like the most? Where can we buy it? Drop me a link, I want to expand my horizons beyond weird ambient.

If you made music, obvs you love it, pls share where we can best support you!


@luka Spotify family plan cancelled. Fuck you, Daniel Ek.

@gabek @luka @kylebronsdon Hey there hope you don't mind me jumping into this but I also put all of my music under CC-BY-SA 3.0, via bandcamp so far (same username there)

is anyone using to play (and manipulate) in RT? on Linux? what is your setup? which library works for you? is it using OpenGL? gstreamer? please let me know which versions work for you!

Here's a short reminder: You can support me on Patreon!

I post some thoughts about music & musicianship there, and from the second tier on, the music I publish is included.

I just put "support me on patreon" onto my wishlist that I'm sending around this season. Because precarity* is the biggest strain on my mental health and having an income that allows me to take time for deep work on music allows me to make better music.

* it's complicated bureaucracy and basically boils down to "I need to make a minimum income with creative work to keep my affordable health insurance".

Pretty sure by now that @luka ’s ichika is my favourite song of 2021. It puts me exactly where I want to be every time I listen to it. 💚
