My biggest short term goal is Economic Democracy for everyone. A simpler wording would be "everything for everyone". Practical breakdown includes, but is not limited to: Free access to food, housing, clothing, education, transportation and computation. I am entirely anti capitalist and I regard any and all speculation as fundamentally unacceptable. My biggest long term goal is a fun times fully automated luxury space communism with optional mind uploading for all.You need to know that about me.

My name is Daniel M Karlsson. I am a Swedish composer living in Stockholm. I primarily write and perform computer music. I also maintain SuperClean which is an open source software project which aims to be a framework that makes organizing sound and making music in SuperCollider more accessible and fun. I work part time at the (royal) Institute of Art (aka Mejan) in Stockholm where I run Lyssningsrum, a 17.4 speaker dome housed in a purpose built room with extremely dry acoustics.

there is a wikipedia article on crypto. it's not perfect, but it does include bits like this.

it also doesn't uncritically repeat unsupported claims by blockchain pushers

Something strange is happening in the vectorscope. That's feedback for ya. Wild and unruly. Never a dull moment.

I finished a track using a Soprano Recorder today. You can listen to the track, look at the code, download the samples I made and read a little log entry about the process here if you like:

The 20th Century Fox theme exquisitely performed on the Recorder. Pay close attention to the minute detailed work with microtonality in this interpretation:

If I'd "invented" the recorder I'd have been like:

"It's physically impossible to play a steady pitch on this instrument! Back to the drawing board I had better go!"

Imagine whoever invented the recorder way back in the before times going:

"Totally nailed it with this new instrument! Bring forth the Master Luthier Plaque that I am owed so that I may hang it upon my wall! Nay! Better! I am become God, yet I walk among you mortals still! Come to me! Look upon my deeds! I call it: The Recorder"

People need not only to obtain things, they need above all the freedom to make things among which they can live, to give shape to them according to their own tastes, and to put them to use in caring for and about others.

We should be doing everything needed to avoid a mass extinction event.

I found a 3D model of CERN collision Event data and brought it into 3D and set up materials/camera/lighting/atmosphere. I might incorporate it into my next short after the May animation.

You too can learn to play the cigar box guitar at breakneck speeds if you call now and order this nine tape box set for only nine ninety nine.

I got a terminal recording working on my site. That's something at least.

Sleep now.

slower computers, please 

I'm a computer guy, but I'm very much over fast computers. Most of your computer's resources are wasted loading ads and trackers on webpages. Video games require more and more power to deliver less interesting experiences. Don't get me started on cryptocurrency. Computers are getting increasingly complex, therefore less reliable, nearly impossible to repair, wasteful, and devastating to the environment. We need #slowcomputers and more #retrocomputing
