Pinned oot

is a sound poem for the browser about exchange between otherwise disconnected and “uncommunicative” segments, departing from forms of spatiality: the distinction between a common space and an individual (or inner) space. Virtual sub-spaces can be explored with the mouse, or by an agent when idle. Each sub-space corresponds to a poem, a set of words that belong together.

The piece requires a recent Firefox or Chrome/Chromium desktop browser.

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

A hybrid piece with an online Mastodon bot form via @kontakt ; and a physical installation form at Reagenz Graz.

Boosts welcome!

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 🌈

3.7.0 is published, and can be installed via the launcher. It contains mainly bug fixes and a number of small improvements. The Node Tree view is finally fixed.

software support forums (poll) 

People are moving away from Gitter, although you can now also log on via Matrix. What's a good support forum for ScalaCollider and Mellite?

(mailing list is dead, so I won't revive it; and please keep accessibility in mind, not just what's fossly "best")

Beim 15 EUR Digitaltimer 1.5 Jahre nach Kauf das Relais defekt. Ist dann wohl keine Gewährleistung und somit einfach Elektroschrott und ich darf den Mist neu kaufen - oder übersehe ich etwas?

Glowing Globe Rijeka 

In less than an hour opens the exhibition at Kortil, where we show our sound oracle "Aleatorium", and the stereoscopic object "Kontakt (simultan)".

Tomorrow is a companion symposium which can be followed online, starting at 10 am.

Ok, this took quite long to craft and wire up. But looks neat and works nicely. Using a step-down DC converter so I can power both 12V screen and the 5V Pi from a single power adapter.

My favourite store in Graz is probably Neuhold Elektronik. You get your electronics in these small paper bags which has the perfect size and haptics to makes you feel like you're in a candy store (just for adults ;)

FPÖ Nazis 

Hier ist übrigens die rassistische Kampagne der Partei, die derzeit *mitregiert* und den Vizebürgermeister stellt. Kein Witz. Ich hoffe ich habe richtig gehört, dass bereits eine Anzeige wegen Volksverhetzung oder Anstachelung zum Rassenhass läuft.

Raspi foundation be cursed for not colour-encoding the GPIO. Take a look at the Asus tinker board ffs

woodwork trick 

If you need to attach something with screw threads on a piece of wood that is too thick, you start with a Forstnerbohrer (circular wood drill of large diametre), and halfway through the drilling you switch to the regular bit to make the hole. And don't do it the other way around.

Pi rotary encoders 

Checking rotary encoders on the Pi with Mellite. You need two GPIOs with pull-up resisters and middle pin on ground. Then you have a nice time diagram that gives this logic

val pin1 = RPi.Pin(1) // GPIO 1
val pin2 = RPi.Pin(4) // GPIO 4
val in1 = GPIO.DigitalIn(pin1, pull = Some(true)) // pull-up
val in2 = GPIO.DigitalIn(pin2, pull = Some(true)) // pull-up
val same = in1 sig_== in2
in1.changed.filter(same) --> PrintLn("cw")
in2.changed.filter(same) --> PrintLn("ccw")

Started building (early stage) another stereoscopic version for “Kontakt (simultan)”, which I will be taking to Rijeka next week for Glowing Globe.

D pol. 

Die Schlagzeile "DIW Studie: Keine Partei würde Klimaziele erreichen" ist ziemlich irreführend, wenn auf einer Skala von 1 bis 4 die Grünen mit 3,6 am besten und die ILoveCapitalism FDP mit 1,2 erwartbarerweise das miserabelste Ergebnis einfahren.

Raspberry Pi ? 

As I was reading on RISC-V based SoCs as alternative to ARM if bought by Nvidia, I saw a totally underspec'ed 1 GHz 1 MB thing for 170 EUR and thought "haha, who is going to buy that at three times the prize of a much faster Pi 4B with 4 GB RAM". Then I checked, and saw that the Pi 4 is not only priced at >110% compared to its 2020 price, but that all major electronics stores in AT/D seem to have run out of supply. "currently not available". What happened, did I miss anything?

besteht aus Kellyfamily, "Anti-Genderwahnsinn" Aktivistin, BlackRock Millionär und Problembär. Im Hintergrund hält ein Opus Dei Jünger die Strippen. Der Kandidatensohn vertickt Maskendeals an Luxusmodelabels. Aber vielleicht hilft es ja, dumm zu grinsen und Frauen zu verniedlichen? Na denn…

Bundestagswahl Deutschland 

Der Wahl-O-Mat ist wieder da: wahl-o-mat.de/bundestagswahl20 - wenn man halbwegs auf dem Laufenden ist, wird man sicher keine Überraschungen erleben; vielleicht hilft es Leuten, die sich bisher eher daran orientiert haben, ob sie eine*n Spitzenkandidat*in "toll" oder "unsympathisch" finden, eher darüber nachzudenken, welche Gesetzesvorhaben man in den nächsten Jahren sehen möchte. Jedenfalls ist die letzte Seite hilfreich, wo man die Statements der Parteien zu den jeweiligen Themen sehen kann.

Wer wie ich den Lebensmittelpunkt und Wohnsitz im Ausland hat, sollte schnellstmöglich die Eintragung ins Wählerverzeichnis und die Briefwahl beantragen - dies muss man auch erneut tun, wenn man bereits bei der letzten Wahl registriert war! Details: bundeswahlleiter.de/bundestags - z.B. muss man in Österreich 4 bis 10 Werktage je hin und zurück mit der Post nach Deutschland rechnen!

I love to return to materials again and again, and rework them and try out new ways of using them.
