Queer fediverse be like:

Check out my new album, "30 minutes of low bitrate white noise", available only on my gopher-over-IMCP server at epicqueergamer7hfai73pfam55oxhq.onion. Please connect only between 01:00 and 02:00 UTC for reasons I will *not* explain.

Since people seem to like this I worked out how to play the album, on linux with ffmpeg and pulseaudio at least:

ffmpeg -t 30:00 -f u16be -i /dev/urandom -filter:a "volume=0.2" -b:a 1k -f mp3 - | ffmpeg -f mp3 -i - -f wav - | aplay

@goo shorter and no aplay dep:

ffmpeg -t 30:00 -f u16be -i /dev/urandom -filter:a "volume=0.2" -b:a 1k -f mp3 - | ffplay -



@makeworld @goo I prefer my noise pink:

play -n synth pinknoise gain -3

Of course I have a shell script that creates a whole hour of glorious stereo pink noise (it's like being under a waterfall) and the cover art too:


I mean, who wouldn't? :)
