Hello everyone. My name is Mads (pronounced with a silent D). I am a Danish composer living in Norway. I write computer music and develop software and spend too much time tinkering with Linux and open source software projects. I work part time at the Norwegian Centre for Technology and Arts (aka NOTAM) in Oslo where I develop software, electronics and 3D audio for art projects of all kinds.
Goal for today: Finish the third hardware revision of my [Greatest Midi Controller Ever Made] in #kicad.
I'm a bit drowzy after my 3rd dose of the vaccine. The perfect soundtrack to that -> Rhythm & Sound https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n60h3jbkBZo&list=PLC4eiA5pIvhrm33u3-BbmGbtTOcqsP0Rj&index=2
From an organisation's point of view, it's really astounding how buggy, slow and poorly managed a piece of software Facebook is. How can the biggest software in the world be this crappy? With so many resources at it's disposal? Do they not use automatic testing for example? So many questions. Glad to see it die soon.
[Long story short...] I was on Taiwanese TV talking about tea the other day. Pretty funny! Fantastic place as well - Wistaria.
Did the #RaspberryPi draught just kick in? Very difficult to find one right now. Farnell says they'll restock in january 2023. Holy shittttt
This piece is ~1300 years old.
One of many extremely relevant asian music traditions that are ignored at music academies here.
Obsessing over Korean court music aka GUGAK. There's so much inspiration to be found. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ia9td1_jQ8I
This morning I remembered Mark Fell's album Computer Generated Rhythm for Microtonal Metallophones. It is by far my favorite release that came out of the Dance/Electronic genre in 2018. So I played the whole thing through and I really enjoyed it. Was great to be back in that sound. After hearing it I felt wanted to stay in that world so I found this interview with Fell that I somehow missed when it came out. Such a pleasure to read his thoughts:
Connecting a USB Midi device to a Raspberry pi Pico (127 lines of code !)
Did some big updates to the #treesitter grammar for #SuperCollider 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.
One of my big wishes for #FOSS in 2022 and beyond is to see more actual collaboration. There's way too much customer-vendor relationship between developers and users these days and I think it's one of the reasons for the many developer burnouts we've seen lately. I myself burnt out because of this quite a few times in the past few years because of the bombardment of demands from people that are not following by the same amount of commitment. More do-ocracy and less customer service please.
