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!

@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.

I found a wonderful Ben Levin Video in which #drummer Matt Zappa talks about how he as a gay black kid found a home in the #metal scene.

Recommend me albums that have the same funk quotient as Herbie Hancock's album Head Hunters, please.

Violin lesson went fine but whyyyy do we always have to do something that's more difficult than what we did before? 😭 #music

Some butterflies I photographed looking very pretty whilst in the process of making more butterflies today:

Thanks to @LogicalDash, I made a remix of the complete Sim City 2000 soundtrack:

Relive your glory days of 90's gaming through my hazy, twisted filter of downtempo fuzz and synth cream

Hey, sometime after I finish my PhD...

...would anyone be interested in being in a Fediverse Virtual Choir to sing some of my work so I can put recordings online?

Eric Whitacre did this (not on the Fediverse) and it worked super well. I... definitely don't have his resources, but I can probably film a conducting track that people can sing to.

Listening to music by a fictional boy band for a series targetted at... pre-teens, probably? In Danish (which I don't really understand), for good measure.

Don't ask.

Also: it doesn't even sound that bad, tbh.

On my mission to read a book from every country in the world, I finished all the countries starting with A! And I wrote about them:
