Day Four

Categories: Writing

I’ve already done a considerable amount of writing this morning. I have written a long email which I plan to send once I’ve re-read it and made any edits later today. A bit vague I know, but I don’t really want to jinx this…

Day Three

Categories: Writing

I’ve done this in the wrong order today. On my third coffee and WFH is done for today barring sending an email. At some point I’m going to unload a whole load about where I am and how I got here, but not today.

Day Two

Categories: Writing

More writing, nothing overly creative yet. Just building the habit for now. A couple of topics are likely to produce something at the moment, I just need to get back into the habit of writing anything, and there’s THE STORY just sitting there in my head, wanting told. Knowing where and how to start is […]

Day One

Categories: Writing

I’m going to try and start writing something every day. First thing, before I do anything else. This is the first. There will be more, and will have no set topic or predictable arc. just a morning stream of semi-conscious thought as the coffee kicks in. It may be about me, the world, politics, gaming, […]

Normal

Categories: Writing

We can’t go back to normal,Because normal got us here.Sold us lies,Disguised as dreams.And divided us with fear.

We can’t go back to normal,Our normal was a trap.Conforming us,To fit a mould.That they can fill with crap. […]

VCV Rack Experiment 002: Fading Between Trigger Streams

Categories: Music

The idea of being able to build a modular system, set it going, and get something interesting and musical out of it without any further input from the user has a deep fascination for me. I keep mulling over ideas of how musically coherent pieces can be created purely from the interactions of the parts […]

VCV Rack Composition X: Multiplcatified Randomation

Many thanks to Colin Benders, and the crew over on the Modular Madness Discord for the inspiration, tips, and pointers.

VCV Rack Experiment 002: Randomness from a Clock Multiplier, part 1

Categories: Music

Inspired by Colin Benders’ livestream yesterday I had a go at reproducing the randomness he was generating toward the end of the stream using a clock multiplier. It’s not quite the same but with a little more tweaking… Patch: https://patchstorage.com/experiment-with-clock-multiplication/ VCVrack.com is a free and open source modular Eurorack synthesis emulator which I’ve been playing […]

VCV Rack Composition IX: There is Something in the Dark Here With Me

Categories: Music

I’m waiting here for someone. It’s pitch black and I can’t see my hand in front of my face. There is something in the dark here with me… Patch: https://patchstorage.com/there-is-something-in-the-dark-here-with-me/ VCVrack.com is a free and open source modular Eurorack synthesis emulator which I’ve been playing with for a month or two.
