If you understand German, Traumarsenal is a very intriguing #radio series by Justin Winkler around artistic ways of interpreting dreams (sent in anonymously), with references to #surrealist Robert Desnos' works of the 1930s.

#Mellite 2.33.0 is published now. It contains various improvements to FScape (mostly the addition of `If` `Then` `Else`; this caused a lot of changes to the Akka Stream layer, so expect this to have some bugs not found yet), as well as some improvements to building GUIs using the Widget object. This is an "intermediate" release, because I'm going to work more on FScape and Widget in the next two weeks, and another release is likely.
I'll be using #FScape for materials of a workshop in April. Realising that I usually use static conditionals when running FScape graphs directly, I'm now implementing a runtime variant If-Then-ElseIf-Else so the predicate can depend on anything in the graph. That's the same syntax as in ScalaCollider which also has this little known If-Then-ElseIf-Else extension (it will partition the graph into different synths which are paused and resumed, while here we partially launch Akka Stream nodes).
variant (a bit eaten by the transcoder, though)
Mellite - Tutorial - Part 9: Built-in API documentation, and new code editor https://peertube.social/videos/watch/39933fdf-2cc8-4594-87aa-8f0ac6e8ed45
Talking of which... a new #Mellite version v2.32.0 has been released.
The first one to drive new mini-IDE Dotterweide. Now you have diagnostics in code editors (red squiggles for errors in the code), you can highlight occurrences of a symbol (ctrl-shift F7; doesn't work always but in many cases), auto-completion is now full-document based and not line based as in the REPL (still needs polishing), and you can look up API docs via ctrl-alt-D. Tutorial to follow.
Excited that the programme of our research seminar 'Simulation and Computer #Experimentation in Music and #SoundArt' is online now: https://orpheusinstituut.be/en/news-and-events/simulation-and-computer-experimentation-in-music-and-sound-art
Registration is open till March 18!

Working on documenting the GE operators in #ScalaCollider, translating some examples from SC. This is just a beautiful use of the lcm (least common multiple)
val mx = MouseX.kr(-20, 20)
val my = MouseY.kr(-20, 20)
SinOsc.ar((SinOsc.kr(0.3) * 20) lcm (GESeq(mx, my) * 30 + 500)) * 0.1
