Barcelona street art

Barcelona something
I love just wandering about a hot Barcelona in the summer time, darting from shadow to shadow, inhaling the local vibe. And the street art there is everywhere. Lots of graffiti of course but also some surprisingly good art. Check out the snaps I took when visiting this beautiful city a couple of weeks ago.

Listen to my unreleased track Red in a Sea of Green

Red in a sea of green

When I’m not posting stuff about DIY music electronics or re-painting a huge kitchen cabinet, I’m also producing some new music. I got roughly enough for a new full length album now, but still need to finish up a couple more tracks, which I hope to do within the next couple of weeks.

However, this track called Red in a sea of green is done and I’ve decided to make it available on Soundcloud. It’s an atmospheric progressive(!?) dance tune with some sort of summer night vibe. Oh and it has a melody.

The album is still unsigned and truth be told I haven’t really put that much energy into fining a label for it. Worst case I’ll just release it myself. Should you know anyone at a (big-ish) label that could potentially be interested, please let me know and I can send send them a secret link to the whole album.

PocketCHIP, a portable device based on PICO-8

July 23, 2016  |  Portable

I got this in my feed a few weeks ago and boy does it look awesome. The PocketChip is like the Commodore 64 all over again, only more hipster and in 2016. Also it’s a lot cheaper than the C64 back in the day, only $49 intro price.

So what does it do? Well, games of course and there seems to be lots of them. And it comes with tools to create your own games or change the code of all existing. Also you can make chip tunes on it, and there’s a sequencer for creating more “professionally” sounding tunes. Click here for more resources on Pico-8 game development.

I also like the technical limitations of the device, as it says on their website: “The harsh limitations of Pico-8 are carefully chosen to be fun to work with (and) encourage small but expressive designs…”

Zero Days, a documentary about the Stuxnet virus

July 21, 2016  |  Movies

A movie about a computer virus perhaps doesn’t sound that exciting, but assure you this new documentary is a real nail biter. See the true story about a virus so advanced it had to be created by some of the best hackers in the world, under the supervision of at least one, possibly several states. A virus so powerful it hampered the nuclear enrichment in Iran and ushered a new era of cyber war possibilities.
