Hello, all. I'm so here is my .

I’m a mild-mannered engineering type by day, and I dabble in drone ambient and when spare time and motivation allow.

My music endeavors have been an on-again/off-again hobby of playing with programs since the early '90s with an Amiga 500. My current DAW of choice is .

Lately, I have been working on music and field recordings.

Talked to a lady who works for the tax authority yesterday. Based on her job experience, her take on the welfare state is something like this:
"Of course there will always be freeloaders. So what?! This is about dignity. Everyone has a right to a good life and to be supported when they're struggling. If you want that, you've got to live with the freeloaders. Leave them be. That's the price you pay for a society where everyone is taken care of. It's not like they're doing any damage in the big picture - I've run those numbers more than once. You'll always get more out of it for society at large when you're incentivising good performance than when you're punishing people."

Does any #audio person on here know of anything that replicates the old "hard disk recorder" that in the late 80s through the 90s synced with a midi time signal and allowed you to track audio with midi? I'm kinda wanting to use the #MiSTer and #mt32 #mt32pi to run an Atari with ancient Cubase and make a track in the old-school ways we used to. Boosts very much appreciated /cc @aldroid @kelbot @Openmastering

This world's
in a music,
if we listen
to what we're hearing


Pluck the string
to make it sing;
the melody's a memory
in the open key
of us

Hey music friends!

What are you working on?

Our record label, Analog Revolution, is looking for songs for our compilation album, "Songs of the Worker (to fans the flames of discontent).

If you have something that might jive with that, or wanna talk more, tell @DoctorDeathray because she's our A and R person.

So, here comes my new album.

It's a blend of heavily processed live RAV Vast recordings. I'd say it's quite experimental, mostly #ambient, though it flirts with #drone while also having a few rhythmic parts.

I made it for myself, on a sudden impulse, with no other goal than to have fun. And maybe a little introspection. It's a mess, but a mess I'm happy with.

'xenotopic networks'
is OUT NOW! :blobpats:

This release takes algorhythmic and sound design experiments I worked on for my performance into slightly more polished realm.

Please enjoy and support if you like it and can afford.

Confirmed it's a limitation of QUARK. It can accurately place a single sound in any speaker (e.g. left front), but when I add a second sound to a different location (e.g. right rear), QUARK will "smear" both in between (heard in the right front). Drat.

Thanks to all who listened to the endless droning the last few days.

Much of the music can be found here:

Other things were not captured correctly and are now part of the void.

Now on to greater things!

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


I need to figure out if I’m doing something wrong in my mix (phase problems?) or if my intentions are more ambitious than ( can handle.
