I'm playing music on in 30 minutes. Movement Through Thought, every Friday 6:30 to 7:30 UTC. (Which is Thursday 11:30 PM PST).

It's time for the relatively-lower-tempo set of the month. It's going to be a lazy one - a small number of long tracks. Chillout, downtempo, IDM, etc. A lot of HIA and Chris Randall I think.

It's last Wednesday again, which means Megaphysics and I are playing music at Ground Kontrol tonight.

I'm still on an IDM kick, so that's what I'm playing. I think Megaphysics is going to play disco (in the CBS / Intergalactic FM sense).

CEV & Megaphysics @ Ground Kontrol Arcade in Portland, Oregon 2018/05/30 9:00 PM PST until close. Free play night, $5 cover.

Success. x86 running under FreeBSD 11.1-Release. JACK for audio, no MIDI. Possible with FreeBSD's Linux ABI support.

Renoise x86_64 should be possible; I'll need to compile a copy of JACK1 in a CentOS 7 64-bit environment and try it.

I'd done this previously in a jail, but it runs much better without having to remote X.

Software upgrades complete. My guess was right, it took approximately five hours.

Now I think I'll move Renoise out of its jail environment and into my main system. That means installing emulators/linux-c7 ...

Software upgrade day. I just started portmaster -a.

qt5-webkit and llvm need to be upgraded, so I figure it'll be done in... four hours? five?



MTT No. 065 / Faint Odour

Radio show done. I'll post the tracklist after I sleep. (And after I figure out what to say).

Really weird show tonight. Good tracks, mediocre-to-bad mixing. I think I'll rework the set and play it at the arcade next week.

Electro and IDM this week. I needed to play that Lanark Artefax track that's been going around, and cobbled a set together to get there. Ends with me cheating by playing Puzl by Gescom in full. Good times.

Movement Through Thought on starts in 30 minutes.

I'm coloring outside the lines tonight. I'm basically playing what I've been listening to over the last week. Will definitely feature that stillness that's been going around.

In reply to: 100019343664723404.

Music research (AKA shopping) part two.

I was reminded earlier today of Umek's alias Zeta Reticula, and that led me to discover Umeks' label 1605 Music Therapy.

sixteenofive.com/
discogs.com/label/127424-1605-

According to the website, all releases are CC BY-NC-ND 4.0. Downloads from the website are free after registering.

I picked up three of the Zeta Reticula EPs, and then it started serving me empty files, so I must have hit a download limit. Will check it again tomorrow.




MTT No. 063 / Delta Vision

MTT063 Spectrogram

Electro and a bit of breaks. Mostly 2000s-era, ~135. I wanted to dance around a bit.

I'll be playing some electro and breaks tonight. Faster and a bit more aggressive than my usual selection. I feel like rocking out tonight. Will probably play a bunch of Fundamental Bass Intelligence and Dominance Electricity.

Finished "Spook Country" by Gibson today. This time, it was as good as I remembered. Which is pretty good. I noticed it had very short chapters, and read a bit like a thriller. I suppose that's what it is, thinking back on the plot.

Not sure what I'll start next.

Finished a re-read of "The Man in the High Castle" by Philip K. Dick yesterday. Very good, much better than I remember. ("Better than I remember" seems to be a trend in my reading.)

Starting "Spook Country" by William Gibson today.

Electro, some new, some old. Very little planning and some iffy choices. The tracks are good, though, and it mostly works.

I danced around like an idiot.


MTT No. 062 / Hear Everything

Electro this week. More space-y stuff and a bit of Scary Techno Vocals™.

Electro tonight. More from Bass Agenda's Various Objekts compilations, more Brokntoys, some Satamile, odds and ends. I'm in the mood to be lazy and let tracks run long tonight.

Another good book haul today.

Picked up "Zero History" by William Gibson and "Runtime" by S.B. Divya.

"Runtime" is short - a novella - so I read it on the way home. It's simply excellent. Smartly written, succinct, and full of cool near-future ideas. Really glad I purchased and read it. I'll be following Divya's work for sure.
