Long: my music projects 

I produce music at a glacial pace, but over the years it adds up. These are the bits that are available online: is my old electronica / noise project. is the math-surf band where I played bass. Only the first two records (Swindon Oasis and Badgerdebon) have my playing on them, but I helped compose some of Dwarf Shortage. is extremely minimal noise / ambient. is a series of Fediverse collaborations, I'm on two of those as Pulsing Bulb.

camembertelectrique.bandcamp.c is an ambient track on this enormous compilation.

You can find other Pulsing Bulb tracks (my most recent stuff) on

Everything is free to download. I accept donations, but am very happy if you just listen.

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 .

White people have race
Cis men have gender
Straight people have sexuality
Abled people have access needs.

It's just that theirs are dominant and unquestioned in a way that refuses coexistence with difference, always elbowing others out while denying they do it.

I've opened up the repo for my #mico controller - a tiny and cheap 14 bit midi controller based on the #raspberrypi #pico. It includes the hardware design, the firmware, a 3d-printable enclosure and a SuperCollider package for an easy to use interface.

Happy #MakeMusicDay / #WorldMusicDay!

Do any #MusicMakers have anything planned, or simply some music to promote?

Maybe you fancy having a go at a #MastoRemix (or have some some source material)?

No need for polish, just have fun! Check my silly go at a @MalteHollmann's #SixtySecondsSounds piece at where we discussed the idea.

Whatever it is, I'd love to see my timeline filled with great #music today ! 🔈 🎶

Let's tell a story, hm? This one's from English history. It's the story of that celebrated King of England, King Louis.

What's that? You've never heard of a King Louis of England? Well, that's not surprising. You won't find him on any official list of English monarchs. He's been written out of history.

So let's talk a little about Louis, the king who never was. ( 🧵​ )

Google's LaMDa is the AI behind numerous chatbot products. It's main engineer Blake Lemoine suspected 10 days ago, that LaMDa could have reached a level of intelligence reaching sthg similar to conciousness. His last conversation with the AI - about the nature of sentience and before Google officials put him on paid leave - is an exciting read, in fact regardless of actual sentience being present or not.

I've spent 30+ years unconsciously supressing stims so I'm only just learning how beneficial stimming is to me for various things. I'm starting to understand different stims as valuable in different situations: emotional regulation stimming is very different from focus-aiding stimming.

What stims do folks find useful particularly for helping you focus when you're an otherwise passive observer of e.g. a lecture/presentation? :boost_requested:

You might remember that I started working on a Discord bot that changes Google search URL's to Searx, Google Maps to OpenStreetMap and so on.

I think the bot is stable enough now to work!
So, if you want the bot in your server, ask me for the URL to add it to your server!

Perfect score today. The top is really tricky, though. I started from the bottom this time.
