@luka just chanced across your blog page https://lukaprincic.si/development-log/ffmpeg-audio-visualization-tricks while exploring how to visualise some audio. Nice, thank you for sharing it! 🙂
Ok, this is pretty weird. Transcription of an interview with a Google AI claiming to have sentience...
My orchestra performed the première of Symphony of Saints by Martin Romberg last year. The composer recorded it, and it's just landed on Youtube. It came out really well!
I can't read the words "COVID 19" these days without hearing them in my head rocking out in the voice of this song...
"It is important to remember that the viciousness and wrongs of life stick out very plainly but that even at the worst times there is a great deal of goodness, kindness, and day-to-day decency that goes unnoticed and makes no headlines."

Just started listening to the audiobook of Hail Mary by Andy Weir (who wrote The Martian). I haven't enjoyed a book this much for a long time, and it has blockbuster movie written all over it! #scifi
I've been tidying up email subscriptions recently (see recent toot on converting emails to RSS), and have been rediscovering some gems. Here's one I have kept finding really valuable: James Clear's weekly 3-2-1 newsletter. It is always short and insightful (as is his book). If you're interested, here it is!
If you find constant email pings frustrating, and prefer RSS feeds for keeping up with things than newsletters, here's a website you might love: https://kill-the-newsletter.com/
Basically it lets you subscribe to a newsletter using a special email address that turns up in your RSS feed instead of your inbox. It's free too. Love it!
Things I love: making music, reading, fitness training, my family. Never far from something electronic. Areas for improvement: sleep, avoiding distraction.
