My artistic styles revolve around dystopian futures, sarcastic deconstruction of hypercapitalism, digital surveillance, #queer genderfucking, the right to (total) privacy, anarchist thought, free software, cryptography and hacking.
I might lurk for a while. I'm an asocial and pretty much closeted queer nb. But happy to try to engage with mastodon & .art community.
In two days I'm releasing an EP I was working on last two months.
As always it will be a free #CreativeCommons licenced digital download and a hand-made and numbered limited edition of 50 CDRs.
I'm in the finishing stages of the music video possible via CC-BY licence.
It's also a #Patreon release, which means my listeners can support me and are in the credits of the video.
Now is a good time to become my patron.
"The glitch systems are cybernetic virus analogs, self-replicating and voracious. They mutate constantly, in unison, subverting and absorbing Chrome's defenses."
As I sit here at the console of my fediverse node. I am moved by the thought that this is exactly what I always wanted the internet to be.
Maybe we are remaking it.
Maybe this really is our own masterwork.
We are the Fediverse.
We are free.
We are made whole.
"Style Is an Algorithm: No one is original anymore, not even you."
This is a wild, bright piece about fashion, style, and taste in the age of algorithms https://www.racked.com/2018/4/17/17219166/fashion-style-algorithm-amazon-echo-look
It was interesting to read in the context of Mastodon's choices re: algorithms and decentralization

Why Techno, politics (3/5) Show more
This formed the basis for the tone of techno. Techno takes Electro, the cold machinelike sound. Neutral on its own, but with the atmosphere of Detroit, the dreams crushed by industrial society, it warped the electronic aesthetic into a dark Dystopian style. Driving percussion, a stripped down factory fresh structure. It's the grim reality of science fiction, a world of promise and wonder buried under Capitalism. But at its core, dreams of utopia among the people provide hope.
what an amazing album.
there's so much i still have to learn.
If vaporwave is the doomed Japanese businessman roaming the halls of the virtual plaza with a vacant grin on his wrinkling face, Show more
distroid is the former soldier and body-builder now working for a private international security firm, his bulging muscles criss-crossed with blade and flame tattoos and his face screwed into a macho grimace above a tight black T-shirt bearing the Monster Energy Drink logo. He has been involved with rap, rave and street dance before but today in the virtual plaza he’s making sure this evening’s pop-up Monster promotional rave goes exactly according to the corporate client’s design. Next to him sits an enormous translucent green polythene bag full of empty cans. And the speakers are stacked taller than he is.
