Hello Lurkers, it’s time for a brief . I am raphaël, born in montpellier, studied art in brussels, living in paris. I usually write small systems with code or physical objects, that eventually become instruments, tools, or less functional things. I love cooking without cookbooks and I usually write code the same way. I am a free software user and enthusiast. I teach art and design in various schools and during workshops. I am part of @velvetyne and I am currently (04/2021) focused on and as a language, and I still maintain lots of tiny tools that I should list somewhere at some point. Procrastination is part of my creative process and I kind of handle it now. I have a post-punk band called zone and a debian computer called jardin.

I am very happy to release the web version of Where Fears Hide, the map of our fears. Discover the CSS creature and their island on

My new project Where Fears Hide
will be available at fanzine festival in this weekend in Montreuil, FR. It’s a A1 poster, 8 stickers, and an interactive online essay (TBA).

I wish I have time for more web design archiving.

I am thinking about implementing silence sculpting in my current sound project: the main idea is to create a silence instrument that turn off all or a part of other instruments involved in the musical composition, exactly when it is triggered. I guess it has to affect individual gains, but I am afraid it will be paradoxically resource demanding.

First Cascade practice since ~1 month without opening it (focus on another live-coding interface). It’s good play with the DOM again.

Zone is a two-persons band I am part of. We work since two years and want to make our first gig soon.


I use that website a lot those days, to understand how web audio works. It is great in addition with mdn docs because it has lots of cool examples

:unwanted_love: the milliseconds after clicking on an unknown personal web page link…

Lost in audio hardware land 

I need to change my living room sound system, and I am completely lost. Amp / preamp / speakers / connections… Any safe combo for various inputs: cassette player, turntable, CD player, jack input… ? I suspect my question really depends on my current hardware, but it’s all 2nd hand right now, and might change at some point.
