It's Saturday because at this point in the week you are extremely saturated.

About this account

I'm a sound and digital artist, interested in installation and intermedia, improvisation and electronic/electroacoustic music. I develop a bunch of open source software.

I keep only one account, so the toots are a mix of sound/art focused things, random thoughts, and few rants (CW'd, and you don't need to share my opinion). I'm friendly/respectful 🍍 + aim to keep an open mind.

Account is locked (allow time to review), because I don't want bots and nazis to follow me. Thx 🌈

I think I have another few days of soldering ahead… On the upside, I found this great technique for magnet wire (Kupferlackdraht), squeezing a wire ferrule (Aderendhülse) at its end; it also looks fabulous.

(why are these things called so weirdly in English?)

Took this photo on 01 Aug 2016 in the town of Eisenerz. Now I'm curious what is supposed to happen in two weeks time…

Working on the sound composition of in my studio. Six days till opening 😮

Those acrylic discs still smell of laser cutting, hmmmm :thinkhappy:

Tomorrow Wed July 22 at 19:30 we open the first piece in the parcours .

It is a sound/text/video installation by Jonathan Reus titled "Wordless: A Conversation with Samuel Beckett and Morton Feldman at the End of History", presented at the fassade of Forum Stadtpark .

Jonathan was guest at the ALMAT project in 2018, and the piece is sort of a further development of ideas hatched there.

After automatic parametrisation of synthetically generated sound programs, I have to figure out how to create agents that do what I'd normally do when I improvise with them.

Note that the video shows a different source code (my bad), see the comment for the actual source code.

infrared sensor "switch matrix" from our installation at Wasserspeicher Berlin Prenzlauer Berg anno 2007. The idea was that all the cables will be hidden inside this box, LOL. This is how messy it was behind the scenes ;)

Making some noise with at Schliemannstr. Berlin in August 2002.

(just correcting the image descr: it's actually the three of us at the table)

looking for old stuff on old harddrives. a photo from an improv at January 2000 (if I can believe the file modification date). Young me ;)

Mellite has an option now to run "headless", which means it can be used, for example, to run rendering workspaces on a Pi via SSH login and no need to have an X11 session (graphical user interface).

Devising an algorithm to drop from a huge pool of automatically generated sounds those that have a pretty much static and non-modulated spectrum.

Arrived at one that takes relatively large time windows, calculates some dozen mel filter coefficients, for each calculates the ratio of 85 to 15 percentile across time, and thresholds at the mean and max of those ratio sets. Works pretty well so far.

Fragment (2017)

"nur die fließende, stille Bewegung wird von der Macht unerkannt bleiben"

"only the fluent, quiet movement will remain undetected by power."

Just after eight, we encountered these strange patches on a house wall. After closer inspection, it turns out these are all spider webs, moist after the rain and thus reflecting in the sunset (it took me five minutes to get the camera, so the illumination was already less impressive than we saw it first; I'll try again tomorrow to shoot this).
