If I understand you, it’s like a pseudo-station (really a player) that plays shuffled disquiet junto tracks from SoundCloud? I’d be interested
Yes - a shuffle player, handling API calls but needs no server.
Effectively a ‘radio’ because I can leave it playing without interruption or intervention.
But not a ‘radio station’ because it is not replete with tools for uploads/playlists/storage/voiceovers/ads/rotations.
I am thinking:
(1) host it from GitPages, setup already for Disquiet = ‘oneclick’ and drift off to entire Junto back catalogue = just for fun & all I need is to avoid offending content creators = not appear as a spammer!
(2) document & provide an ‘unconfigured’ code template on GitHub Repo = build your own ‘radio’ from favoured Soundcloud profiles+playlists = worthwhile if anyone interested can match their curiosity with basic Git & .js/HTML skills?
So, it seems Marc at least may allow the Disquiet ‘brand’ to be on it. A few of you think it’s cute. And I’ve done a share of Juntos myself back in the day. So I will push ahead with plan (1) and bump a link back here when it is ‘live’.
Looks good. How does it know which tracks are ambient? or do you curate it?
They are all Disquiet - they are all ambient! (being noises from the other side of the room)
Nice work! I don’t like soundcloud very much but I do like the junto very much, this is a nice way to listen.
Somewhat my motive - tho’ regarding SoundCloud, we can still listen respectfully as they are giving all the heavy lifting! eg: Use the righthand side SoundCloudLink to offer comments&support when you hear tracks you like.
Great job on this! Seems to be crashing Chrome iOS when I put the tab in the background. Ah well I will give out a go later on laptop. Thanks for putting this together!
Thanks for feedback. It is a toy really - I’ll be unlikely to react to every bug in every setting. Major browsers on major desktops seem OK. It is GitHub based, so you can fork and have a go yourself? I’ll aim to make things (in the code) more generic/friendly to that end.
Impressive! Tested on iOS Firefox and worked well. This is really great. Nice job!
Will try to look at the code later and see if I can try out some alternate css styling options.
( Obvious styling suggestions = not write it in notepad++, comment the code & run it through a linter )
Twenty characters of
css styling : seriously, some @media entries for extremes of view size could clean it up a lot!
Nice work! I’ve wanted to make a similar page for a while, still WIP as ive only looked at it on and off, but might share it here when i get it online, good to see im not the only one who enjoys listening back to all these fantastic contributions
Good stuff, always up for listen to Disquiets!
cool, very interesting!
- Code improved for presentation and ability to customise.
- Sufficient doc’s added for code to be approachable?
(.css still needs some love, for small screens & removing stray style footprints from code&html)
thinking - something like this - perhaps even playing fragments of the tracks fading in and out might be really cool for the current Junto (Disquiet Junto Project 0436: Planetary Headspace) - however I’m already over committed on my time for this weekend so just throwing the idea out there in the, probably vain, hope that it might grab someone else as worth doing…
Thanks for seeing it creatively. I hear you clear regards time! I keep imagining, with the (several) decent js DSP lib’s around, comparing tracks through convolution buffers to establish a constant fading ‘coherence’ from track to track - or otherwise maybe sampling&mixing via convolutions into an endlessy modulating drone. It sure is faster to make sound tracks in the mind than to realise them!
this continues to be a great player! thanks for the effort you’ve put into this. i love turning it on and hearing ‘random’ junto radio as a stream.
I have a tiny wish there was a CLI client, but I’m not sure how i’d implement that.
