covid-19 pep talk, and PSA for young and healthy people
It's easy to get fatalistic about covid-19, maybe even especially if you *are* young and healthy. "I'm gonna get it anyway, it probably won't be worse than a case of flu, what's the point of taking extra precautions?"
Something to keep in mind is that the worst part of a pandemic is that it *happens all at once*. This leads to insufficient hospital beds, overworked healthcare staff, etc.
If we can make the pandemic happen more slowly, we can free up resources for taking care of the people who need hospitalization. We can also reduce supply chain disruptions (food, medicine, etc.)
So: Handwashing, taking sick days off from work (and other types of self-isolation), avoiding travel... these can all be of immense help to everybody else, not just you!

Having fun with my voice, #minibee accelerometers, granular synthesis and patterns in #supercollider
Code, or it didn't happen: https://gitlab.com/kflak/100-sketches/-/blob/master/sketches/mbFlutter.scd
In the series of useful stuff for my #supercollider work: a language-side envelope generator that seems to work just fine. Very, very limited as of yet, but does the job I want it to: creating fades for random parameters without having to use patterns or server-side envelopes...

Patterns and granular synthesis is an awesome combination. Especially when triggering new patterns in real time with accelerometers. #supercollider
Finally got around to making an effect chain class... https://gitlab.com/kflak/supercollider-quarks/-/blob/master/KFUGen/FxChain.sc
@kf I did this on endquote.com using ffmpeg to make HLS files and hls.js for playback. The video chunks are just delivered as regular static files.
in light of chinese musicians starting to do gigs via video streaming, it's not futuristic at all to imagine earning all your money via live streaming, ordering all your food and anything else you need to your door and essentially live without much human contact for years.
Hey fedi, I’m considering moving my videos away from Vimeo and simply include them in the gitlab repo I use for my website instead, using git lfs. Then embed them in my Hugo site with a simple html5 video tag. Has anybody done something similar? What are the pitfalls? How would I make the result work dynamically on mobile and desktop? So many questions....
