The predominant UI paradigm seems to be mimicking mechanical or electromechanical tools. Word processors pretend to be an extended typewriter, simulating ink on paper. Web browsers - something between an electronic newsletter and a TV. Messengers - an easy to use telegraph.
The use of computers as flexible information processing machines, that could be instructed to peform interesting stuff for you in semi-automatic way, remains sort of beyond the definition of normal for no reason.
We live in a "vision-first" society. Vision is, however, selective. You can only see a fraction of your environment at a time, with the most detailed picture in an even smaller area. Hearing is 360° and continuous.
Opening oneself a bit more to sound and listening can thus be an acccessible way to practice a more contemplative, sensitive, relaxed and less "segmented" percetion of a moment (or an arbitrary continuity of moments).
I have been interested in microtonal music for quite a while now. It has various new moods that I had never heard before, and of course new melodies and harmonies that aren't possible in the Western 12-tone system. My goal is to mix microtones with oddball #electronic dance music.
Folks, please let me know what you think!
Until now I mentioned "no js" in the footer, but "sans-js" / "sans-script" looks like a term that's more likely to stick.
@Telegram knows the below account is an impersonator, and I don't have an account with them.
But they let this guy continue to post insane garbage—as "Official_EdwardSnowden"—and even a swastika, which Telegram has served to over 80,000 views.
Back in 2012, live coded/algorithmic dance music nights didn't really exist. I came up with the dorky word 'algorave' but it took some years of some hard work pretending it existed before it really happened. But still for me it will always feel like something that doesn't _really_ exist, like my little secret.
Raspberry Pi recycling scheme, boosts welcome
heyo, fellow Raspberry Pi folks: OKDO are partnering with Sony to run a recycling scheme for used Raspis, so if you've got e.g. an OG Pi1 sitting around that you don't know what to do with (like I do), you can send it to them to be refurbished and/or recycled in exchange for a £10 off orders over £15 voucher!

If you have any thoughts, I'd be thankful if you share (here is okay too).
