@z428 I gave it a little spin tonight (doing AI for a living, so I happen to have a capable enough machine around...)

I have to admit I quite like some of the results...

@draco :) Nice! I'm also thinking of joining this year again. I already tried last year, but wasn't quite ready then...

@z428 since it's based on pytorch there *might* be a way around using cuda (even though it is asserting cuda availabilty in line.26 of the main script)... but expect it to be several magnitudes slower than it ought to be.

looks quite impressive tho

@luka ah that sucks :( fingers are crossed!

childhood, arts, father <-> son 

@js0000 It's all long in the past now, but sometimes I still feel the need to say 'that was wrong' (or hear someone else confirm it ;)). So, many thanks for your kind words :)

childhood, arts, father <-> son 

I discovered my grandparents' piano when I was 3. I could play it reasonably well when I was 4. At the age of 5 I picked up tunes from the radio and reproduced them.

Almost everyone was delighted, but my father was firmly against me pursuing a musical career. He actively prevented me from taking courses or auditioning at the academy of music.

I'd love to think that he only wanted to spare me a life of frustration… but unfortunately I know better.

@artsyhonker I totally *love* that rule! could have applied it numerous times in the past...

Ich hoffe es. ich kann es nur so überhaupt nicht verstehen. Der Mensch hatte Lineare Algebra 1 & 2 und antwortet auf eine Konfrontation mit allerelementarster Prozentrechung mit "Das glaubst Du!"... es fällt mir schwer, auch nur ansatzweise nachzuvollziehen, wie es dazu kommen konnte. :/

Ich glaub ich geh mich jetzt besaufen.

Aaaaaah die Schwurbler sind im Freundeskreis angekommen :(

"Nee, ich lass mich nicht impfen. Es liegen doch auch Leute mit Impfung im Krankenhaus"

"Ja, aber es sind wesentlich mehr Leute geimpft als ungeimpft, also ist ihr Anteil wesentlich geringer."

"Ja, das glaubst Du!"

Der Typ hat Informatik und Mathematik studiert. Was soll man da nur entgegnen? Wie kommt man gegen sowas an?

Here's a little something I'm working on at the moment. It started out mainly as improvisation. Pads, bass and drums then were added later on.
Equipment used: minilogue xd (lead, bass), Wavestation & Blofeld (pads), Proteus2 (strings)

Hi all :) Since I've made a new home at sonomu.club, I thought maybe I should (re-)introduce myself.

I'm an animal caretaker, musician, photographer and software developer. Some might remember me as part of now defunct alt-pop outfit Botany Bay.

After our utterly unsuccessful final release, I battled depression for 3 years. Mainly thanks to my work at the animal sanctuary I am much better now, making cautious (and much smaller) steps into music again.

Looking forward to hearing from you :)
