I've been bumming around the since 2017, but I've never bothered with a formal , so it's about time I did one. I'm a sound artist/practitioner/researcher based in Spain. I work in the field of phonography, sound design, acoustic ecology, and militant sound investigation.

I occasionally write (in Spanish), mostly at ./mediateletipos))) <> and <>. I blog at <>.

Here on the , you can also follow what I read at @kamen. I occasionally post pics as @4n4st4s and I'm dipping my toes into @funkwhale as

Hello, World.


Interesting project and format ("Audio Paper"): Karin Hellqvist and Carola Bauckholt, "Solastalgia. The voicing of a fading natural resource". At SAR, they also showed an interesting video made by a third artist to go with the piece.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

start uploading code that contains as many bugs as possible. I figure the syntax needs to be correct or it'd get filtered out fairly easily

but like, logic bugs. off-by-ones. checking return values wrong.

if the function returns -1 for error, check it against 0. do if(strcmp(string,"expected"))
use strcpy().
use printf(user-controlled-value)

this is kind of what the internet is good at, right? making AIs act in ways their masters don't like?

On this day in 1985, London Pride was led by miners in solidarity with LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners), something that was depicted in the movie Pride and is well documented to have led to many gay rights in the UK

That was also my first ever pride. In a sling, as a baby, I marched alongside the miners and the queers.

Today, exactly 37 years later, I helped to lead and organise a trans rights protest outside Downing Street in London.

Solidarity forever.

The Web is a Document Markup system (SGML/HTML/XML) to which Stylesheets (CSS) and Objects (Javascript) and Databases (SQL and noSQL) have been uneasily grafted, communicating over a network based on Packets (IP) and Streams (TCP) to a Cloud based on virtual machine Images or Containers.

None of these core fundamental abstractions love each other or even share any basic premises other than "bytes exist". None of them.

It might be nice if we could simplify this protocol stack somewhat.

My first live coding system was called, a handmade text editor for writing self-modifying Perl scripts. I wasn't into documenting anything in those days but here's a video of me using it in 2004 with percussionist Alex Garacotche
