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 🌈
Interesting electro-mechanical monostring instrument: http://www.wiessenthaner.de/Images/SPO/2021_APR_09_SPO_klassisch.mov (video loads very slowly)
Quite reduced articulatory repertoire, but beautifully executed

“Hypothetically, a federated GitLab could fill all the requirements, however, federated services cannot be offline-first and don’t offer sovereignty over user's identity. Users are tied to specific instances and thus subject to some of the same drawbacks as centralized services.” ( https://docs.radicle.xyz/docs/understanding-radicle/why-radicle )
I disagree. Having instances with a particular group of peers, codes and culture is the strong point of federation. The #Radicle design shows the flaws of purist free software and purist p2p ideology with an impoverished idea of social interactions. Operating Tor or Bittorrent is the most asocial activity I can imagine. I truly hope #ForgeFed ( https://talk.feneas.org/c/forgefed/10 ) will succeed at some point.
I also don't see why federation means it cannot be offline. There is no reason a federated git client couldn't cache the status and activities. There is a bit too mucher prepper aesthetics here.
Max Mathew's MUSIC V (Csound predecessor from the late 1960s) source code: https://github.com/vlazzarini/MUSICV
Ok - seems not the original code, but adapted to newer Fortran. But that means it actually runs as far as I understand.
Here is a new text-sound-image piece I made with Nayarí: Divagation 2
I guess I should put circle markers on the glass slide directly, otherwise if the slides move, the separate circles don't help much
blast from the past - I worked with Hough transform in 2016, although the line based one. There is a variant, circle hough transform. Found a ImageJ plugin that I hope I can just extract the algorithm and run it headlessly. Seems to work despite the perspective distortion of the circles.
some CSI vibes there. Anyone know a Java or Scala image processing library to quickly do the perspective alignment / equalisation of the markers?
Think I will turn this into a "waiting piece", uploading one to four photos per day (they are shot with a timer), accompanied by a line of text written by me - so it's a semi-automatic process. To set up a small masto bot to post them to a dedicated account. Which #instance for contemporary art that accepts such a semi-bot would you recommend?
#Mellite 3.5.0 is published, and can be installed now through an experimental launcher: https://github.com/Sciss/Mellite-launcher/releases/tag/v0.1.0 - this has a built in update mechanism, and thus will liberate me from having to build platform specific versions of every Mellite update, as well as liberating you from having to re-install Mellite again and again when an update is published.
Give it a spin, and let me know if there are any issues. Or if you need a build for a different architecture.
works now with upgraded servos and slightly better coupling
