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.

Thank you everyone for your nice suggestions on GitHub replacements ! Will have to try out Gittea and/or codeberg I think. Thanks !

Feeling more and more uncomfortable with hosting code on Github (Mainly Copilot regurgitating mine and others' code and reselling it). What are the good alternatives? I thought about self hosting at least some of my repos using Gitlab but have I overlooked something obviously nice?

Getting back into Salvatore Sciarrino's weird operas. Luci Mie Traditrici is particularly inspirational for me at the moment

Having a real "Covid 19 will make like difficult for a long time" kind of moment while trying to figuring out travelling across borders now that cases are rising again and deciphering the kafkaesque, ever changing Norwegian grading system for countries/regions with Corona. FUCK OFF CORONA

#xCoAx recordings are online. Be sure to check out the keynotes by Špela Petrič - "On The Vegetariat In Times Of Surveillance Societies" - and Yuk Hui - "The Incomputable and the Incalculable"

Beautiful full moon here last night. Scandinavian blue summer nights are infinitely amazing

Audacity's new maintainers revise their policy and issue an apology.

Looks like people under the age of 13 will be allowed to use the software.

I added it to the AUR as well now for those on based linux distros. Installation is done using an aur helper like so:

paru -S supercollider-guttersynth-git

Just made public: GutterSynth, a fork/remix of Tom Mudd's chaotic physical modelling synth for . Been working on this with a friend during lockdown and it is a lot of fun (and very dangerous, be careful)

a glimpse of the semiconductor shortage saga:

$0.90 component is gone, holding up our (relatively small) production of 300 units. component won't be restocked until 2023, if ever again. it's not quick/cheap for us to retool.

purchased parts we need from an overseas warehouse for $5/ea. after paying, were notified that the parts were 16 years old and corroded, but they had 1 year old stock which we could get if we paid the difference for $8/ea.

and i just paid.

welcome to the future.

It's not a big thing but just discovered this nice little thing in that I've never used much before:


This will pop up a nice little gui window to control the server.

Can someone enlighten me on the potential use cases for session managers? distros seem to mention them a lot but I can't figure out what I'd need them for and am afraid I am missing out on some good stuff.

I updated my plugin for SuperCollider bonus features (a sort of companion to scnvim) so that it now includes shortcuts for all the server gui stuff and the ability to open the QT help browser if needed

Tried out installing studio-controls (formerly Ubuntu Studio Controls) on my arch laptop and it works really nicely. Autostarting the autojack utility and studio-controls on boot = jack is started, pulse is bridged, devices may be added. Very user friendly. Seems zita-ajbridge is doing some magic here? thanks for the tip!
