#introduction Hi, how are you? I'm a #musician, producer, sound-engineer & occasional #writer. A #Socialist, pro-#feminist, #anticapitalist & #freesoftware advocate. I make #ambient, #psychedelic, #electronic, #rock and #weird #music. I used to collaborate with musicians such as Daevid Allen & Gilli Smyth of Gong & writers such as Michael Moorcock. Interesting times. Nowadays I'm a semi-hermit living with my partner & two sons in an old farmhouse & studio next to a world-heritage rainforest.
Very much liking the look of the new #CLAP #plugin format - most notably the fact that it's being released under the MIT license. Kudos to #Bitwig & #u-he (& the other developers) for releasing it under an open license! A good interview with those involved - https://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=BrLdgemE92Q
I know a solution to exploitation of musicians problem!

Some strange things going on with my my #Funkwhale instance right now, but still... Here's my last solo #album "What There Is" available in it's entirety. I could make an attempt to tag #music genres, but better mention some literary influences - Robert Calvert, Angela Carter, Iain Sinclair, Michael Moorcock, William Burroughs, JG Ballard, Robert Holdstock etc etc. https://audio.tryptophonic.com/library/albums/1/
Beannachadh Bealltain! Happy #Beltane! (Even though its technically speaking Samhain here in the southern hemisphere). Raining like the clappers, so no bonfires hereabouts tonight.
Vale Klaus #Schulze, one of the most important & prolific #synthesizer pioneers. I've been regularly listening to his music over the last few months, having picked up a new turntable. I've a pretty extensive collection of not only his solo work but many of the other artists on his label Innovative Communications. Great stuff. #NowPlaying #Timewind. #klausschulze
