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.
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
#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"
And always reminds me of Krøyer's paintings of the same. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summer_Evening_at_Skagen_Beach_%E2%80%93_The_Artist_and_his_Wife
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.
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.
"Revealed: leak uncovers global abuse of cyber-surveillance weapon". Wow !
It's not a big thing but just discovered this nice little thing in #SuperCollider that I've never used much before:
This will pop up a nice little gui window to control the server.
I updated my #neovim 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 https://github.com/madskjeldgaard/supercollider-h4x-nvim#gui-stuff
`paru -S studio-controls-git`
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!
