I often feel like a character in Alice in Wonderland crossed with Oz crossed with Waking Life crossed with Nightmare Before Christmas crossed with being a side character in a Marvel comic

That's January in terms of releases

60+ songs, from acoustic to electronica to distorted guitars to ambient to full band studio recorded to my newest songs recorded and mixed on my final choice linux

And then I'll be releasing the single of the newest album I'm working on in the style I call Earth Music: A Way Home

Then, when they are all online, I'm releasing a never before released albun I completed recently

I've come out with at least 50 songs across eight albums

To celebrate this, I'm going to be releasing them all for listen on Bandcamp

Here are some images of the setup

The plugins are really awesome

I'm appreciating Robin Gareus for the parametric equalizer

Calf audio for their compressors

And the gtrx group of plugins

#linuxaudio #linux

New song snippet "How to Hold the Line" rgvavra.com/01-04-2019-how-to-

one hour of creation

MIDI in #AVLinux #linuxaudio in DAW #ardour with all the plugins that come with #kxstudio in avlinux

I'm now quite satisfied with my ability to create MIDI beats and compositions in Ardour

And that mastering compressor is pretty awesome and better than proprietary ones too.

Wow, went onto twitter to see the Louis CK leak, and that place is far worse than it was when I left a year ago. I don't miss it one bit.

2018 was the year I concluded that any system whose purpose is to measure, capture, and monetize human attention is immoral and inevitably leads to the erosion of the commons and society itself. In 2019 I'm committed to helping dismantle these systems by all possible means.
Concretely this means supporting nonprofit alternatives like mastodon, blocking all ad tracking (sorry, people whose livelihoods have been captured by that industry), and doing whatever most damages the attention industry.

I hope to as a person remember I'm nothing other than the actualization and practice of my value set and the impact it makes in the world

Hyper individuality is
not only ineffective as hyper masculinity,
it's isolating and accomplishes much less than

Understanding the multitudes of common threads we can work with
