that said, on IRC i will appear as novadeviator. i think I need to change that.
i'm now permanently in chat channels:
i'm using great client for Matrix: http://riot.im - they have a lovely mobile client too.
it's pretty much like slack.
but it's federated, with an open API (choose different clients), and interoperational with other chat networks (has IRC bridges and more). after this I don't know why I'd need FB messenger anymore.
(this should go into #LibreMonday actually)
Our (Kamizdat) last four releases in physical form.
Digital releases are all Creative Commons and "Name Your Price" free downloads.
Kamizdat is a boutique netlabel specialized in local slovenian electronic music talent with hand-made physical numbered limited editions of USBs, CDs and tapes usually in a booklet form rich with liner notes and photography.
If you started writing on medium.com because 'why not' and 'it's a slick process', consider the fact that the company has started pestering readers to sign up with pop-overs.
VC funded companies are not public works. Their investors will want that $134 million back.
If nothing works,
eat dry figs
and drink green jasmin tea.
(sorry, some self-motivational affirmations because I'm struggling with getting melodies right and putting them into SuperCollider patterns system under time pressure and pretty precise expectations-limitations)
I hereby propose a new Mastodon Slang Lingo addition: when u get boosted by Gargron it's called "getting gargled" now
work in progress.
made with new headphones (= bad mix, levels might be pretty off) this morning.
calling it 'tartuffe_epilogue_riser' for now. it's a proposition. i'll see in few hours if it's any good.
although the main feedback that matters in this case is the director's, all your reactions are more than welcome!
#NetNeutrality is NOT DEAD YET. Congress has stopped FCC votes before. Do NOT give up!
1) BOOST this to help spread the word that we can still stop this.
2) CALL your lawmakers: battleforthenet.com
3) PROTEST at Verizon stores on Dec 7: VerizonProtests.com
Towards another première with the awesome director choreographer performer Matija Ferlin.
The show is called "Staging a Play: Tartuffe" and is a second in the series of works by Ferlin where he is researching the area between body movement and conventions of stage theatre. It premières this Saturday in Savičenta, Istria, Croatia.
i'm staying in a small town in the central Istria, Croatia. i brought our dog with me and i'm staying and working in little rented house-appartment, quite nicely furbished, heating it with a woodstove. inside i'm in a t-shirt. outside is almost 0 degrees C.
i'm here for a week to finish music for a contemporary dance piece which premieres on saturday nearby.
most of the piece is just pure organ - about 55 minutes. all the time. i have some improvisations recorded with me and i'm struggling to convert them into pattern algorithms in #SuperCollider to create an interesting-enough long composition that will support what is happening on the stage.
it's wonderfull outside. calm. the doggo is sleeping, tired, since we walked today a lot too. it was sunny and cold but it's dark now anyway and i'm kinda stuck how to go on with my work.
looks like having a page on facebook pages have become completely useless if you don't pay.
“I’m worried about the impact of Facebook on democracy,” said Fernandez. “One company in particular has a gigantic control on the flow of information worldwide. This alone should be worrisome. It’s downright Orwellian.”
no shit, sherlock!

Long report from yesterday's gig Show more
Yesterday was a long day, my feet hurt like hell at 3AM when I arrived home.
I was panicking at points, since I hadn't prepared myself for the performance much. I had some separate samples and loops from the original tracks but it felt like I'm blind and in the dark how to go through it.
Girls who run café Pritličje ("ground floor' in Slovenian) are awesome. They included our promotional concert for the release in their 3year anniversary that lasts 4 days. You have to visit if you're in Ljubljana!
The visual artist I'm starting to collaborate with on the label events and videos works beyond my expectations. She made amazing visuals at the event, video mapping, dark and atmospheric, very appropriate to the occasion. Working independently, self-reflexive, just wow.
The additional artist on the event but not on Kamizdat (yet!) MUZIKAČAKA was very interesting, outsider-ish, quite good actually. She had some technical problems (mic feedback) and perhaps the whole performance was a little bit long, but it was so good to hear her special slow moving minimal but emotional vibe bordering a bit on experimental side. Something unpolished and honest.
Gašper was of course amazing, as is his EP we just released. Dark, ambient, distorted, pulsating, growing pushing, noisy and emotional/lyrical, dynamic...
We sold about 10 of his CDs and some older releases as well, to the audience of about 50 people.
All-in-all it was a successful night.
"Bila je edina cigareta na svetu, ki je bila pakirana naokrog, filter je bil na dnu škatlice. Kriva je bila tehnološka napaka. Cigareta se je v stroju enkrat premalo obrnila in se znašla v škatlici narobe. V tovarni so se znašli in razložili, da je to zaradi higienskih razlogov, da se z umazanimi rokami ne bi dotikali filtra, ki ga damo v usta in zaradi tega je bila cigareta razglašena za delavsko, česar ne podpira cenovni razred. Pravljica o higieni se je prijela..."
A little pun on #Firefox 57.
A legendary 'workers' cigarette pack from Ljubljana's Tobacco Factory (Tobačna tovarna Ljubljana).
The cigs were famously filter-down in the pack - a myth reasoned one can take a cig out without smudgin the filter part with dirty worker's hands - but truth was, it was a factory error.
Observe the dragon - Ljubljana's symbol that turns into firefox logo in the last edit.
Ok, so, because of illness (not mine) the burlesque show is not happening tomorrow so I can focus on one event per day - that's kinda much more normal. Before that, I thought I'm gonna go crazy, playing in one venue, missing on the beggining of our label show in the other venue and then run across town to setup merch and line check and play there...
Good, let's prepare for tomorrow then.
