I kind of feel that not enough is made of how the far-right has weaponised the internet and is totally undermining democracy. Like everyone knows it but is there much being done to oppose it? At this point I think there's every possibility that reform uk will win loads of seats in the next election here, and win the election after that, just by manipulating public opinion on otherwise uncontroversial issues like active travel and human rights.

@yaxu

not to underplay the effects of online manipulation/astroturfing/bots etc, but the fact print media has been in freefall for a while means outrage = clicks = revenue for most news outlets. tv news is no different really. everything is a 'debate' now.

and the left are traditionally way easier to divide because there are so many minorities with diff concerns; the rise of gotcha-ism is super easy to leverage for the right, exaggerating fault lines that have always existed but been kept quiet.

and then add in the fact that every time something outrageous happens on the right, the left media think it's a great idea to never shut up about it, giving it oxygen etc.

Today in we have the release anniversaries (one a Wood Jubilee) of a duo of duos' albums to celebrate:

[14] Autechre's "Oversteps": https://autechre.warp.net/release/249266-autechre-oversteps
[5: Wood] Sleaford Mods' "Eton Alive": https://cargorecordsdirect.co.uk/collections/extreme-eating/products/sleaford-mods-eton-alive

Primeval is the quality I hear running through these two. In Oversteps' string-like sounds – guitar, harp, dulcimer – as if modelled after echoes found in ancient archaeology, and Eton Alive's howls about society.

Happy Anniversary, @sean_ae & Rob; and Jason & Andrew!

Is it just me?

If I set all my gear up in a studio - I seem to lose all will to play!

But the moment I put some stuff on the floor, make a mess and sprawl around, or sit with one bit of gear on the sofa, I suddenly start having fun and feeling creative!

Why? 🤷‍♂️

@kel less pressure, comfier, no unused gear staring at you.
i noticed after a while in a room it goes away for me, like i start living in there and it just becomes my normal space. stops feeling like i'm working a job iykwim.
like, i love working but i don't like jobs.

Today in #music we have the release anniversary of a stratospheric album to celebrate:

[16] Autechre's "Quaristice": https://autechre.warp.net/release/249272-autechre-quaristice

Flying in the slipstream of 1997's four-quartered Envane, Quaristice was the first Autechre release I caught as it happened. Pretty sure it was in the buildup that Mary Anne Hobbs whetted my appetite by playing 'Simmm' on the radio. And I once toyed with 'chenc9' in Pure Data for an unstaged show of The Wizard of Oz!

Happy Anniversary, @sean_ae & Rob! <æ

i did a rough rework of Saw You, dunno how close it is to real master by you but i guess its gonna work at least for now lol
hope u dont mind, made it so i have at least something from that tape in my collection

btw where does that string/pad thing originates from? my friend sent me a sample of guitar string and i used it as a result

sean_ae,
@sean_ae@post.lurk.org avatar

@toffo a valiant attempt at a remake there

good job you got back to me actually cos i found the track the other day and forgot who asked for it, here you go:

(direct transfer from tape, unmastered)

https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/qjs8c5d4oiaop69lpvwfx/LegoFour-14_SawYou.NORM.wav?rlkey=y0e78f7lkrjufhszauvge8245&dl=0

iirc that sound was a tx81z. was prob an edited preset cos it was only the first time we used one.

one of a handful of tracks we did in daz fitton's studio above dr rock (drake st, rochdale). we'd meet him in the shop at 6pm and he'd give us the keys and leave us in there all night, so we had to fig it all out by ourselves.
the tracks came out sort of ok considering, but after a bit we realised we were doing better stuff at home, so it goes.

was good experience though, learned some stuff, and very cool of daz to let us do that.

@miunau that sounds nicely smooth.
i did a ring mod (with phase distortion) module and yeah, it's quite nice on simple tones. it can grab its pitch from any channel so it can do like [2 melodies at once] type things

Well, today in #music we have the release Pearl Jubilee of the (¿compilation?) album that began it all to celebrate:

[30: Pearl] Autechre's "Incunabula": https://autechre.warp.net/release/202833-autechre-incunabula

It is the end of the day that "Incunabula" evokes for me. Autumn nights, wrapped up wandering the fleetingly lit streets, lost in thought putting the pieces of our days together.

Happy Pearl Jubilee and thank you for the music, @sean_ae & Rob! <æ
