kitty + fish + fzf is eye opening ... i always love cli, and use the terminal for much of my computer use... but this combo makes me feel like i had been stuck in the mid 90's.
@scott I would be shocked by this development in taco technology did I not already reside in a Scandinavian country where a frozen pizza "with taco taste" wasn't tearing through the place like a wildfire
I turn on my PC.
The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.
The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.
Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.
Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.
Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.
Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.
The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.
Humanity is not ready for instant messaging
I have a few codes for my latest album, _Interferences_, released on Tokinogake.
I’m James. I make sound based art and am interested in how my computer can be leveraged as a tool for exploring sample based materials. I work on a project called FluCoMa based in Huddersfield, UK but an Australian in origin.
I’m currently working on building resources and engaging artists personally in order to disseminate the Flucoma toolkit as well as build a distributed community of practitioners. I’m interested in most things even tangentially connected to computational arts and creative coding.
Really great for automatic mastering etc.
The musicology of robots:
Robots detect pitch with autocorrelation, so don't experience spectral roughness, but do get confused based on their window sizes. To a robot, any two paired sounds are either perfectly consonant, or perfect unisons. To be a robot is to live in a state of perfect harmony.
Pitch is therefore meaningless to them as musical material. Because everything is harmonious, everything is bland. Tune is nothing to them. Robot music is based entirely on rhythm.
We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
