Up to 99% of my goal to fund a week's tidalcycles dev ko-fi.com/G2G6LHVU
That's 165 coffees received, I'm literally buzzing

I'm now accepting cups of coffee in return for weird music software ko-fi.com/G2G6LHVU#

A hastily trimmed version of a demo of upcoming tidalcycles features sent to London Music Hackspace youtube.com/watch?v=6MpG1LW54_

anyone else having problems getting talk.lurk.org to load?

Got tempo patterns working in the new tidal.. will stream a live demo tonight, 7 hours from now youtube.com/yaxu/live/

Having fun pushing the tidal refactor towards release.. Rewritten innards leading to big improvements, e.g. to combining patterns, taking input from external controllers, tempo control (hopefully being able to pattern cps). Can't wait to try this out on the Japan tour !

the performance by Ryan, Lucy and Loz using github.com/Qirky/Troop was great, they looked like they were having so much fun, I guess because if there's 3 of you making sounds, it's less to stress about trying to keep the flow going.

had a chat with Neil (of praxislive) about it, seems impossible to do that kind of collaborative text editor (with multiple humans changing things at different places in the same file simultaneously) thing with the "whole program compilation" model of both my system clive and his (awesome) amen $ mother function set...

The collective investigates
how gender is represented in new media and writing/publishing tools like Wikipedia, and how it influences the way history is recorded.

Packed schedule for Yorkshire > Japan trip in a few weeks, + a big show still to add! algorave.tokyo/

I'll do a pre-release in the next week or two, in time for November workshops in Osaka and Tokyo.

Excited about the new tidal, I've replaced all the innards and there's so much new stuff to explore. Still haven't got around to trying out the new controller input stuff either..

Finally trying out the new tidal stuff I've been working on the past month.. Working well! Will show it in
Tidal club Sheffield on Thurs eventbrite.co.uk/e/tidalclub-s

In daily life, 10 is a nice number because we generally have fingers+thumbs literally at hand count on. (I'm not sure *why* we have ten of them there but hey)

In computer science, 16 is a nicer number because it's divisible by 8, 4, 2 and 1, for easy bit shifting in calculations.

In textiles, 12 is a nicer number because it's divisible by 6, 4, 3, 2 and 1, allowing a wide range of pattern operations.

Here's a quipu-inspired structure I made with 60 x 8-9 year olds of Wybourn Community Primary school for the @CMCPlayground exhibition, lots of messages hidden in the knots and beads..
