I've decided to publish a version of my rejected PhD project proposal on my wiki, and place it under the CC BY-SA 4.0 license. Enjoy!

Okay. It's live. introducing: the candy crystal rainbow codex:

And the code:

Okay so

Hello. I'm @paul. I'm a musical hacker and sound designer interested in teaching computers how to sing. I spend most of my time working on software projects related to the field of computer music.

Some topics that amuse me:


My website:
My mirror website (hosted on GH):

Guess who just learned about Jalapeno fumes the fun way.

This guy!

Has anybody in the open source audio work considered the possibility that at any moment, PACE, the new owner of JUCE, could pull the rug on that project and seriously fragment the FOSS ecosystem?

Any open source alternatives to IMDb? The web experience keeps getting worse and worse.

inb4 I use my own TODO app for personal projects that don't require collaboration:

Is there a brutalism mode for Trello? I just completed a list in a checkbox, and it did this whole pulsing animation just to celebrate my victory. Unnecessary, and it feels a little condescending a bit? HTML 1.0 is fine.

lots of unexpected little bugs have been uncovered in thanks to the challenge I've been making for myself.

Incredibly thankful for GDB and Valgrind. Also very thankful that I only have to troubleshoot single-threaded offline-rendering programs right now.

These signs have been popping up all over the greater Boston in the last 48 hours. This is a special kind of crazy that doesn't come along every day. Treasure these moments.

Hi all!

My name is David. I'm from Ann Arbor Michigan. I love to make music and I love writing software to make music and art. I typically feed myself by working as a software developer for others but am currently taking some time to focus on other projects. I'm hugely inspired by people making independent art and tools. I love the culture and aesthetic of Algorave but I've never been to one. I have just migrated here from and I'm excited to be on a more art focused instance.

More progress with my track today for the ! (I am building a synthwave track without a DAW, using just low-level C code with a small scripting language on top.)

Starting to use my gesture sequencer to work out melodies and make automation curves. Also added some a delay-throw on the melody.

I'm up to a 8-16 bar loop now. Hoping to add a little bit more. Another section perhaps? I need to leave enough time to make sure I can publish all the source code before the deadline!

Here's a classic subtractive 3osc synth bass sound.

I just read an article about someone who learned just enough about how to make generative art, in order to flip NFTs. They ended up making $50k.

They blogged about it. The first half talked about NFTs and then worked backwards from that towards things like generative art, processing, and Mondrian. It was a very strange thought process.

:flan_ooh: It's not just a new Noise Unit album today, there's the 20th anniversary edition of Assemblage 23's brilliant, heart-rending "Failure."

With the ROLI rebranding, what is the future of MPE going to look like? They are/were probably the largest hardware manufacturer MPE devices, and were lobbying pretty hard to get it standardized in the MIDI community.
