The new (third!) A Whale's Lantern album is out!!

6 tracks by 12 of your favorite Mastodon musicians, who were put together in pairs at random. The results are as diverse as you would expect them to be :music_collab: 🎼

We hope you enjoy the music!

Okay, folks - there hasn't been a round of A Whale's Lantern for a while because, simple as it is, life has been incredibly busy. How do y'all feel about having one now? Good idea to distract you? Bad idea because life sucks? Let me know.

In any case, I hope you're all safe and healthy and have some good company if you like company. Also, feel free to send me your bandcamp links so I have something to listen to while social distancing like a pro.

TFW you feel superbadass because you organized your #SuperCollider code for the 8-channel composition in a git repo with special branch dedicated to the 8chan installation, while master branch is stereo version. Including a push online to your own gitea instance.

My work place has started a community radio channel, and of course I had to get in with an episode :) you can listen to my episode, which takes you on a musical journey across our little planet, here:

If you like it, feel free to push the like button because of course I want to have the most likes to shine like a bright star at work ;)

What have you been listening to? I'm tired of my music and could use some new things to check out.

Something like the flamenco scale ( sounds intriguing and exotic. But how to compare them in a given song? You're in luck, because some people change songs to experiment with exactly this. For example, see how Nothing Else Matters ( sounds when switched to the major scale:

@Snorlaxation @backwardsflow
Her albums are all out of print at the moment. I hope she gets a distributor soon and they fix this properly on the reissues.

Of course I'm going to take this as a #marketing #opportunity to #flog the tune @LouInABox and I made for @awhaleslantern:

I'm looking for someone to give a one-on-one cooking lesson (Chinese vegetarian) in Calgary at the end of December/beginning of January. Preferably in a restaurant/professional kitchen but I can also host. If you know anyone or have ideas, please let me know!

That @marnanel has written a protest song to a well known tune.

It's public domain, and they would love to hear a better recording as theirs is rather rough.

Can you help?

Looking for some music to listen to on this beautiful Monday night? How about music by randomly paired mastodon musicians? You think that doesn't exist? It does! And we've filled four albums already! You can listen, download, and pay what you like here:

many months ago i wrote a little two bar melody that goes "time to blank blank blank" and now it's like an executive function pavlovs bell i hear it and feel conviction run thru my veins and start whining

I just added an RSS feed to the Music Monday archive:

And now that there's a feed, it would be a waste to not have any new entries... so I guess I should have a second season at some point 😅

The second season might be more "relaxed", simply songs I like, and something I like about the song (without trying to teach any concepts or going "deep" into it or whatever). We'll see.


If you're going to use last year's call for scores as a template for this year's, make sure you double check your search and replace.

Apparently there is a workshop on writing for oboe but you need to submit a viola piece, and it is on the 2nd of November but you must be free on the 3rd to attend.

I don't think I'm up for paying £10 for this if they can't even get those details right.

I kindof want to put a "negative reviews" page on my website just so I can whinge in public about the time [redacted, famous composer] called my work "rudimentary, what I would expect of a first-year undergraduate".

I'm not going to, but the temptation is there.

My friend is looking for an internship, or a volunteering program in Europe.

She's an illustrator, who recently graduated and wants to take a gap year.

If you have suggestions and recommendations, especially from personal experience, please do make them. Your help is much appreciated.

Feel free to boost too.
