New server, new .

I'm Hugh. I live in south-west with my partner and children. I work as a web developer, and contribute to .

I make occasionally. I've played bass in bands, but mostly I compose weird music solo on a computer. I contributed a track to the second A Whale's Lantern compilation by musicians of Mastodon, collaborating with Mascha.

I speak some , and less .

My theme for and concfg is now public. If you like a subtle dark palette, give it a shot. I'll add more formats in time.

Can anyone recommend a children's book that sort of explains nonbinary genders, I'm thinking age 4-8ish? And ideally quite postable and ships from the UK!

#PatchNotes @PatchNotes

is like #looptober, #noisevember #loopvember but runs through the year. Record, create, post, short-ish recordings, loops, beats, noises, melodies, sounds from your creative process where you work focused on sound/noise/music. Perhaps write a little description of anything that puts it into context (can be anything).

You can also call for #AudioFeedback #SoundCritique #RateMyNoise and add some reuse indication, if desired.

If you like this proposal, plz boost.

I just published my first video game! It's called Winter Bliss and it's a chill video game about cross-country skiing:

It's free and available for Windows, Linux, and Mac. Source code available if you are interested.

Really happy to finally get out this update about goings-on in @spritelyproject

tl;dr RacketCon talk up, progress on the serializing-a-running-world system (Aurie), making progress towards textual virtual worlds.

Enjoy! And thanks to @davidrevoy for the INCREDIBLE character artwork!

So this is as far as I got for this year, in which one is tasked with producing an album at least as long as The Ramones' first in a month. Ambient is easy, I thought. Another almap album it is.

So, at 50 minutes, it's well into the timebox, but exactly half as long as intended. I present the provisional version of almap's third album, 2.

Today I updated my Google Doc, a document listing proof from reputable sources that #nonbinary people exist and are internationally recognised:

*Finally* put up new #music on my #Bandcamp after like, what, two years??

This is but one half of a two-part compilation: I plan to have the second half be a "mirror" of the first in some sense...

if you posted some recordings as part of #noisevember #looptober #novembeat did you like it so much that you would continue into december, january, february in some capacity? (if you answer yes, could you comment what would motivate you to continue?)

I've made a whole drum kit, plus some synth voices and sound effects, for Yoshimi or ZynAddSubFx. There are also sample sounds that you might enjoy even if you don't use those synths.

I haven't posted to @noisevember recently, but I have been making sounds. I'm putting them all on the same page:

@ethan @sixohsix If the CBC works like the BBC, they're ad-free for residents, but leave the country and they're a commercial broadcaster.
