Now playing: Derek Kwan (and mb Cai too as Caider) / California (and maybe Vancouver) / TidalCycles (and maybe live visuals) / America/Los_Angeles https://www.youtube.com/eulerroom/live
tune used as the intro for my #TidalCycles #NewMoon set with #caider. since i've been thinking of the orihime and hikoboshi tale ever since finishing steins;gate 0 (thx anime!), this tune is named after the milky way and is about instances of hazy fluidity and how we can feel stuck in them or trapped by them at times.
"desert dusk" is one of the #tidalcycles tunes i used for the #caider set at @NetworkMusicFestival in July and is prob one of the prettier things i've written. it is about transitions and the magical things that can happen in those in-between, gray areas. also, "desert dusk" would make a wonderful scented candle addition to any living arragement.
#skateboarding to buy groceries and buying beets, mb not the best idea I've had
back on my polybius square game, have to find other relatively basic encoding schemes that could be potentially visually interesting #p5js
dreamt I woke up in the parking lot of a pizza place to meet up w ppl but 1st we had to go get hand soaps dispensed from a soft-serve machine and you could get them in swirls but the trick was to add ice to the soap tub 1st bc I mean how else you gonna keep the swirl soaps cool??
i couldn't even smell the swirl soaps in my dream which is a shame bc that is my fav part of soapshopping and i bet my brain could come up with nifty scents like "basil turnip solstice" (or bts for short) or "albacore embrace" well mb not the last one #dreamlog
"The marsupials’ bums are made up of four plates fused together and surrounded by cartilage, fat, skin and fur. Alyce Swinbourne, an expert in wombat bottoms from the University of Adelaide, says wombats will use their backside to “plug” up their burrows, stopping predators entering and protecting softer areas of their anatomy."
Read all about it!
#skateboarding around practicing my kickturns, watching a neighbor trying to have 1/3 of a dead tree taken down by truck/chain, and humming along to joanna newsom tunes bc that is the official music for taking down dead trees and skateboarding. kickturn/manual tips welcome.
finished "a place further than the universe" about highschool girls becoming friends and going to antarctica (which i mean is what all proper friends do really please i want to see wild penguins + aurora borealis) and it is so ridiculously full of heartwarm + wholesome #sorayori
first #tidalcycles song from my live set with cai visuals as part of #caider for emergent behavior. the title is inspired by the "burnt field" arc of the "march comes in like a lion" anime and is about things that despite changing circumstances, continue to burn however dimly and will hopefully one day burn brightly.
#skateboarding achievement: I can ride down 1/3 of my driveway and navigate all those slight bumps and slope changes onto the street and stay on and also get on my board on a gentle slope I am such an extreme skateboarder now you don't even wanna know 🛹🔥
here's a picture of said 1/3, yeah I totally conquered that:
my friends sofy yuditskaya and sophia sun and i wrote about our generative desert karaoke #puredata-powered installation Karaoke of Dreams and we are talking about it tmw and it's gonna be pretty rad and also i'm dubbing it the #aimusic talk of dreams in my head
been out of music school for yrs and still have dreams about having so many pieces to learn for a final recital I haven't started yet :( but also dreamt I was with friends taste testing lemon marmelades one of them was making and we had to drive to get more lemons :) #dreamlog
