Ha, my project got featured on Glitch. glitch.com/culture/computer-ma

(I am far from fluent in javascript so I do not recommend trying to learn anything from my code, but it was fun!)

*whispers* I finished a project last month; I was not going to share it here because it’s not very well put-together, but to my surprise a few people seem to be enjoying it, so: tinyplaces.glitch.me (output); github.com/emmawinston/nanogen (source).

I didn’t really promote this properly the day I made it, but the other night I made a sort of soft drone EP. It’s not really like anything else I’ve done but I like it a lot.

It’s free/pay what you want.


(This was Igbo > English - it seems like Igbo has a lot of polysemic words and combined with Google’s overdetermination from context it got interesting pretty fast.)

I have *never* been able to get Sonic Pi to click for me as a language, but I am at , currently being re-taught it by a ten year-old girl, and suddenly it's making sense

and honestly I feel like there's a lesson here about teaching styles, about assumed audiences, about assumed knowledge

btw @emma is still valiantly posting all my loops one by one, but the best of them are expanded on on Heal anyway.

I'm so so touched that people are enjoying heal? It was such a strange little project born out of literally not being able to do anything else, and the thought that it might be giving other people comfort or joy too makes me feel good. thank you all.

i usually write songs but right now my heart is broken and i am lost for words. So I made a lofi instrumental album on my phone to make me feel better. it did make me feel better.

it is free/pay what you want.

Last boost is kind of how Christopher Small’s ‘musicking’ concept works too.

hey yeah so i put a masterlist of the stuff I've done for on my . Still can't get it to loop seamlessly but close. tilde.town/~emma/looptober18/

If you want the visuals, I'm having them post day by day to @emma.

they get sadder and sadder as you go i'm afraid because so do I.

if you missed me live-coding sad pop songs on the radio and would like to hear it there's a recording here - mixcloud.com/Resonance/the-hel I'm on from about 1h07. A few technical hitches but I'm pleasantly surprised at how non-obvious they are. :)

Last boost is the only introductory thing on federation/activitypub/mastodon I’ve ever read that made sense to me, if you’re interested.
