Send me your notes and thoughts on 'waiting'. What are you waiting for, is that waiting hopeful, or anxious, or incurious?

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 🌈

day today at Reagenz - we did our best to tidy things, here are some nice shots. Day started sunny, now there is some rain, but that cools down the temperature, which isn't too bad.

help - solder problem 

I'm having trouble soldering the last one of these three connectors to the supposed solder point. The solder never attaches to the point. 😩 Tried already some other shitty "eco" solder that didn't work at all, while the normal solder is usually quite good for electronics, and so is my Ersa solder iron. Arghhh

Mellite, Scala 3, text editor (NeoVim) 

Thinking of the Scala 3 pathway for Mellite. The embedded light-weight editor, Dotterweide, would need new presentation compiler support.

So my thought process was to move on to use Metals and an LSP client. But today I'm thinking to ditch the editor altogether and use the UI-embed functionality of NeoVim.

Too many options, I'm confused, although this last plan seems to most resource efficient (I wouldn't need to maintain any editor functionality itself). On the downside that creates platform specific dependencies (can't publish a single application for all platforms)

how it was attached. the double-sided tape didn't let any sound pass, so... I ordered much more subtle clamps now :)

This K&K piezo mic is acceptable. For a price of just under 40 EUR I would have hoped for less hum, but I guess I can filter that out mostly.

MANFREDO SCHREIBER

I arrived to Theresienstadt when I was ten years old.

There was a big mountain
of broken glass pieces.
They made us sort them out by colour.

After a few weeks,
with everything in order and wounded hands,
they asked us to separate the glass by size.

With no other intention but
To make us feel miserable.

That was the first job in my life.

Llegué a Theresienstadt con diez años.

Había una gran montaña
de trozos de vidrio.
Nos hicieron clasificarlos por colores.

Después de semanas,
con todo ordenado y las manos heridas,
nos pidieron que separáramos los vidrios por tamaño.

No había otro propósito
que hacernos sentir miserables.

Fue mi primer trabajo en la vida.

Just some L-system plant I "grew" for project Sublim (2016). It was then actually redrawn by hand with red ink on acrylic glass.

I find fascinating how the passing of time, differences in rectangle detection, and slight movements due to irrigation produce subtly different images that you can look at stereoscopically (cross your eyes to bring left and right image into congruence). Credits: @kontakt

#NowReading Victor Klemperer - LTI (Lingua Tertii Imperii; 1947) 

„Ich muß an die Überfahrt denken, die wir vor fünfundzwanzig Jahren von Bornholm nach Kopenhagen machten. In der Nacht hatten Sturm und Seekrankheit gewütet ; nun saß man im Küstenschutz bei ruhiger See in der schönen Morgensonne an Deck und freute sich dem Frühstück entgegen. Da stand am Ende der langen Bank ein kleines Mädchen auf, lief an die Reling und übergab sich. Eine Sekunde später erhob sich die neben ihr sitzende Mutter und tat ebenso. Gleich darauf folgte der Herr neben der Dame. Und dann ein Junge, und dann ... die Bewegung lief gleichmäßig und rasch weiter, die Bank entlang. Niemand schloß sich aus. An unserem Ende war man noch weit vom Schuß : es wurde interessiert zugesehen, es wurde gelacht, es wurden spöttische Gesichter gemacht. Und dann kam das Speien näher, und dann verstummte das Lachen, und dann lief man auch auf unserem Flügel an die Reling. Ich sah aufmerksam zu und aufmerksam in mich hinein. Ich sagte mir, es gebe doch so etwas wie ein objektives Beobachten, und darauf sei ich geschult, und es gebe einen festen Willen, und ich freute mich auf das Frühstück – und indem war die Reihe an mir, und da zwang es mich genau so an die Reling wie all die anderen.“
