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 🌈
Different perspective. #Caturday
This is cool - a web server based SDR (software defined radio) where you can make all the tunings: http://websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901/
Much better reception than the cheap thirty or so EUR one I got few years back for a project (probably the antenna was worse). I wonder how many users can tune in concurrently with their own settings.
Even lets you record in the browser and save the resulting sound file.
Yuk Hui: “Instead of saying, #writing is an externalisation of memory, or the use of certain tools is a liberation of bodily organs, in this writing itself we find different relations, for example between human beingn and animals, human beings and non-human beings, a complexity of relations.” (for example pictorial vs phonetic writing)
Should I ever be implicated in a crime, I have an airtight alibi:
*me:* But officer, did you find any traces of hair from a grey British Shorthair cat?
*they:* ah, no, what are you trying say?
*me:* Look, couldn't have been me. There is literally not a square centimetre in my environment, my clothing etc., that doesn't have those fibres.

'web sound space'
We were discussing yesterday, whether to iterate a sound installation for 'browser format'. I think it's a radically different space (and would be an entirely new piece). Some thoughts:
- personal, intimate space
- noisy space ("between tabs", "between coffee and e-mail")
- framed space, poststamp space. who has their laptop wired up normally to a good sound system?
- volatile space (open a tab, close a tab, forgotten)
- radiophonic space (tending to your computer is not unlike listening to a radio receiver? also: "radio background"; remote connection)
- connected space (when going via a server vs. front-end only)?
- what's the source of time? does it start when you open the tab, does the piece "always exist" and you merely tune in?
- multiphonic space (there can be different tabs running)
- controlled space (mute / unmute)
- what else?

I finally got to select and edit the sound recordings for documenting #Infiltration (along a selection of photos) https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/711664/1042608
In spring we'll also do a printed catalogue.
