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!

Since my collaboration partner just sent me his saxophone parts to mix into the whole, I shall excitedly babble to Sonomu and the multiverse that our @awhaleslantern piece is flowing wonderfully and nearly complete.

Trying to coax some sounds out of these saxophones for the ending of the song that @flavigula and I are working on for the latest Whale's Lantern album via #MusicCollab

Only about three weeks left until the artists who signed up for the current round of the have to submit their songs - I'm very excited what people will come up with and hope you are all having musical encounters! 💙 🎼 :music_collab:


I'm drawing something huge with a TON of folds again...

Hello, @sixohsix asked me to write a song for violin and tenor recorder, so that's what I did today. Here's the midi export from MuseScore:


Does anyone know what happened to the intellectual property rights of various musical compositions and recordings made under the soviet state after it fell?

Were they privatized? Are they still held by the Russian government? Something else?

So we kinda went out with a pre-order for the album that we're releasing tomorrow night.

We are also planning some crazy guerilla streaming in the middle of the night of Warrego Valles' performance using two telephones with Jitsi (open source teleconferencing no-account software), an ogg vorbis icecast audio stream and OBS trickery at the TV control room in another location into the YouTube channel... - it's scheduled so you can set a reminder.. Sound Noise Music mastodon instance.

We welcome active musicians, songwriters, algorave livecoders, digital signal processing hackers, bedroom producers, writers of choral music, under-the-radar music selectors, exotic instrument explorers...

We'd like to stay easy and modest in numbers, hope for a quality local timeline and network with high S/N ratio.

My latest song is kind of a children protest #song, here's the #demo recording of "Child You Matter":

This was today a visit to a classic arcade with an orchestra.. I got to conduct 😊#smallstories in a video

Oh no I wish I could find this music track of a mastodon user who just posted it, because its awesome and gives me the goosebumps on my skin feeling of "I'm awake, this is a feeling I enjoy"

Where are you!!!

Three days downtown of street performing my violin

All I have to say is, it's wonderful to communicate at such a level with the entire city what feeling we could be at home at

So, here is the Ave Maria from the Stations of the Cross that I was working so hard on this winter. No recording, just robot clarionets at this stage, but I hope you'll still enjoy it. Sheet music is CC by-SA as usual; you can download the pdf to follow along with the recording.

Also I could for example mention the "A Whales Lantern" @awhaleslantern by @masu who brings strangers together to create music with strangers. This is also another wonderful example for how amazing this platform is and how much I like it here.

And yes there are probably a million other projects and people all over the place and I am just making examples.

I am just so happy being able to be a part of this.

P.S.: I am ok, and not dying or anything. Just had a really soft moment. <3

A post on digital connection: How do you do that online thing?

My blogpost asking about sharing and amplifying voices, including a conversation with @jonathan_worth who invited me to share our conversation and invite you into the discussion. (I learn so much from him)

Also with input from @marcjones @Downes and @dogtrax (thank you to you three)
