I stopped using Spotify and replaced it with #Funkwhale a couple of years ago because Spotify suddenly stopped offering an album I'd had in my collection for a long time with no notice nor explanation.

Now I'm hearing that a bunch of podcasts are going Spotify exclusive as well, meaning that they are no longer actually podcasts and are not accessible to people in countries which Spotify does not serve.

Kill Spotify dead, frankly. Just the worst example of art distorted by tech.

"If a person can’t get out of bed, something is making them exhausted. If a student isn’t writing papers, there’s some aspect of the assignment that they can’t do without help. If an employee misses deadlines constantly, something is making organization and deadline-meeting difficult. Even if a person is actively choosing to self-sabotage, there’s a reason for it"

This is such a good article. CW discussion of ableism

today i've been working out which one of the 5 different hihat tracks needs a -0.5 dB notch at 3033 Hz

fediverse:
another media is possible

but can it resist becoming overrun by capital and its insatiable pursuit of profit?

do we get this fabled other world only after destroying this one?

note: women are usually overrepresented in polls like this.

The majority of things we involve ourselves in are distractions - devices to avoid our feelings.

Ideology is like accent: If you think you don't have one, it's because you haven't met a lot of people who don't share it.

I have recorded a very quick and rough mahjong ASMR track.

Mikes: AT2020 (right) + Redmi Note (left) 7. I am surprised that the latter is so good.

Just in Januray 2020 I've recieved an amazing wave of support from the community.

I got many private messages with thanks from viewers and listeners.

I saw poeple buy my free music -showing amazing appreciation for my music.

A few people joined my Patreon camapign showing a will to support my work continuously.

I've seen many thankful comments under my videos.

Someone offered to mirror my videos.

After struggling a few weeks with mixing and mastering issues, the new album, Alläï is released!

I'd say it's quite different than what's come before, but I have a rather skewed point of view as the composer. I hope everyone enjoys it!

I can almost hear the silicon Valley pitch now: "It's like Mastodon... But with BLOCKCHAIN ™!!!"

@wilkie

SoundCloud's backtrack on their decision won't change the fact that the decision was merely the last straw in a string of grievances I had against it, most damningly what its codec does to my audio quality. As I said, I already had gotten little out of it, so I'm not returning.
