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!

interesting enough

shiny superficialities of lite classical divertissements

european cultural detritus of a previous time

why does anyone like anything?

A typical European car is parked 92% of the time. It spends 1/5th of its driving time looking for parking. Its 5 seats only move 1.5 people. 86% of its fuel never reaches the wheels, & most of the energy that does, moves the car, not people.

Something to lift your spirits on this foggy Thursday morning:

A Journey into Acoustic Leather Music: Dance from The Chordwainers

Leute, ich habe eine Altersweisheit für euch: Opfert euch bloß nicht für die Firma auf. Keinen Millimeter. Es wird euch nicht gedankt.

(Freundin hat immer 120 - ach was, 150 Prozent gegeben, hatte nun Hörsturz und längere Krankheit und bleibt auf einem Ohr taub - und jetzt kam die Kündigung. Arschlöcher.)

i hate drum solos
and ginger baker a miserable human being

I've uploaded a new piece of #music for a remix project @kiki started. Have a listen, and if you want the remixable stems, just ask.

listening to people with actual opinions about music argue about music makes me never want to consume music again in my life oh my god

all music debates boil down to people on both sides just saying "haha it's ok if you like it I just find X about it bad" with ever increasing intensity and abstruse appeals to whatever relevant work's music heritage, as if any good piece of music ever would be less good if it were made entirely by accident

Little fluff ball needs your help!

This is Cassiopeia, former street cat, currently waiting in quarantine in Ukraine to be transported to me and my Mia Cat to Berlin, Germany. If you or anyone you know is traveling some time soon from Ukraine to Germany (Berlin/Brandenburg area) and would be willing to transport her, we would be forever grateful! She is ready to go, has all papers & vaccinations but travel right now is difficult.

(Posting this again with pic because you all love cat pics)

Decided I'm filtering out any toots with in them.

Friends, may I present to you: Clown Core.

Loud musical nonsense. But played with a lot of skill. Listen to the drummer's kick patterns. Wow.

Here's a picture of the little fluff ball, who is right now waiting in quarantine to be transported to me (see previous toot for more info). #catsofmastodon

It's almost October, which is almost Christmas, which means that my a cappella trio needs new Christmas/winter songs! If you can recommend any three part arrangements/compositions (SAT/SAB/AAT/AAB), let me know! We are open to all genres, time periods, and difficulties.

Some of us in #clmooc are working on small pieces of Hope that we intend to pull together ... I created this piece over the weekend, with the soundtrack by myself; artwork by my friend Sheri; and the voice of Ruth Bader Ginsberg ...

I was asked what the future holds for Linux audio. So I've decided to make a video about 3 upcoming things I find exciting.

Music Monday! This week, arpeggios (and note that next week it will be season finale!). I had mentioned before that chords are three or more notes played at the same time, eg. if you play E, G, and B at the same time, you are playing an E minor chord (try playing the three notes separately, and then press the "Highlight" button to play the chord):



I can't find
words for poems
like these anymore
for there's nothing
I can give you
that's not infected
with the politics
of malice;
Not deeper analytics,
just sheer ballistics
of incompetence,
numbers from a world
gone awry

#smallpoems for #ds106

TIL about what Ligeti is all about, at least as far as one can learn in aboit 10min. David Bruce compares him to MC Escher.
