new post from @Zeke_B is up!
So, today I’d like to talk about
M. My understanding of the importance of
Mtook some time. (By
MI’m referring to the Metronome script in each scene on Teletype for those who aren’t aware.) In the interest of full-disclosure, I am not a dev and do not take to coding naturally. Sure, I’ve done some courses on CodeAcademy to explore if that was something I could awaken in myself, but nothing ever took or stuck. I share this because my journey with Teletype has been a labor of love, emphasis on the labor.
at noon pacific (in ~40 minutes) i’ll be streaming porting crow’s new sequins feature to norns. come hang out! i’ll post the link here when live.

@andrew you are absolutely correct. straight copy pasta.
Contributed a new post, Accelerando Heat Death, to the University.
A Teletype Haiku you can try for yourself our listen to as a performance.
As the universe expands, iterations of its thermodynamic swan song are simultaneously calculated and performed by Galaxy Clusters 1 through 6, accelerando.
new community post of all the ur-texts of mapcore is live. excerpt:
“I’m a fly on the wall of the house that mapcorps builds, and it feels to me maybe a bit like a map of the House of Leaves, or like each time you open your GPS a different layer is turned on, like one time it shows peak foliage viewing, and another we see the geological composition of surface minerals, then what restaurants are open until midnight, then how slime mold would distribute itself compared to the Interstate Freeway system. I’m super into it. Sending appreciation to y’all.” - @wheelersounds

Adrift on the waves, it just so happened that my boat began rocking in a most delightful manner — rich and yet simple, four smaller crests matched against three larger crests, again and again, then rougher, seven smaller crests for every five larger ones, and then I was thrust ashore on the beach of an island I had not heard the like of before.
@tehn i was just talking about this maxpat on the maps stream last week! funny how these rememberings coalesce…
One thing i remember so vividly is the ability to increment a parameter by an amount. I’d never been able to program a synth in terms of current state, always absolute values, unless i was turning a knob by hand.
