Hello! You may have heard about #Retribute, a project we're developping whith the Funkwhale collective and as part of our mission.

It's a set of lightweight standards and an app built from the ground-up to help you support creators on fedi and elsewhere, according to your activity and your budget.

Yesterday, we've launched our official website at retribute.me/! Our next milestone is to finish the first drafts for the specifications.

If you want to help with that, or simply want to know more about the project, we have weekly meeting at riot.im/app/#/room/#retribute: and you can of course ask us any question you may have here!

Just thought I'd do a shameless plug and say you can listen to all my music here at bit.ly/antidotnet and I appreciate it in advance! I'll have some cassettes for sale in the very near future!!

Nobody undervalues their work more than artists, and possibly none moreso than digital artists since to them, their art cost nothing to make.

Except, you know, all the time, training, electricity, living costs, passion, mental health

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

Before the performance (Staging a Play: Antigone) in Rijeka (Fiume), Croatia. Beautiful National theatre (HNK), but tribunes are ON the stage.

Played some new #music to a live audience the other day, in a rather spontaneous gig with my new project 'sonic elephant'...

Wow.

I had no idea how much I missed that. It's so much more rewarding than taking music online...

#SelfCare #quotes #quote

#Mastodon may be ethically, systemically and functionally superior to the birdsite but I'm still just as capable of reflexive dialectical engagement here as I am there. Still as prone to unhealthy addictive behaviours here as there. Or to time wasting or agitation. It's a nicer culture here and I love that people are building it for themselves but I think I need to take further steps (back) towards #DigitalMinimalism or at least start rationing my screen time.

if you haven't i encourage everyone to read this extremely frightening look at how spotify is basically ruining the artistry of music:

thebaffler.com/salvos/the-prob

"Spotify loves “chill” playlists: they’re the purest distillation of its ambition to turn all music into emotional wallpaper. They’re also tied to what its algorithm manipulates best: mood and affect."

The first ambient track I've made, requested by a friend. They wanted something for exploring caves that didn't sound like some Massive Evil™ is about to unveil itself.

An old-new piece by me that is somewhat inspired by Castlevania. If you hear it somewhere, expect the unexpected.
