Grønland--an exceptional ambient composition by Glåsbird, an anonymous modern classical artist (who is possibly from Iceland?). It's the soundtrack for an imagined documentary film exploring the natural beauty of Greenland.
I have opened commissions for the first time ever! Super cheap for now!
Plus new Patreon tier that includes monthly commissions:
I posted the first piece (Debussy Sonata) from my concert last weekend. The HD camera did work after all. I am amazed at the difference a decent camera makes to the built in stuff on the laptop I had to use for the livestream.
makes me want to bring back HiFi and vinyl, and bin the mp3 :)
I think it's not too much of a waste if I repeat here two simple tricks with #ffmpeg in order to upload audio as video to mastodon:
1) test-tv image/animation:
ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc -i AUDIOFILE -shortest OUTPUT.webm
2) album cover or similar:
ffmpeg -loop 1 -i IMAGE.png -i AUDIOFILE -s 200x200 -shortest OUTPUT.webm
* with -s WWWxHHH you can adjust the size/resol. of the video
* instead of webm you can safely use mp4 as output extension - it will create an mp4 with x264/aac codecs
"Kick it!" - new single track from me on #Bandcamp .
(Warning: It's got BEATS!) ;)
Facebook and Google news should be regulated, Cairncross Review says.
Do you know why meditation is so effective?
The lack of thinking.
Thinking is something that takes energy. It also has a chemical effect on your brain that can drastically alter your mood. Thinking, 24/7, is the best way to stress yourself endlessly.
Stop. Take a deep breath. Open your eyes and look. Don't think about what you're seeing, don't think about what you hear, what you smell, just. Experience it. Breathe in, and out. Listen to the sounds around you.
When speaking with someone, listen to everything they have to say, fully, and /let them finish/ before thinking of a response. You won't interrupt them this way, your thoughts won't get in the way of you understanding them, either.
Il est sympa ce site #RedditMusicPlayer , il permet de jouer les musiques contenues dans des fils Reddit qu'il va récupérer sur youtube ou soundcloud apparemment. Combiné avec les playlists #listige ça le job :D
Le code source est public sur Github, ça serait super si ça fonctionnait aussi avec les fils #prismo ^^
Creativity and the Unknown Show more
Dependency murders creativity,
Creativity plays with the unknown.
No strategies exist
that can enclose the endless realm of the new.
Only trust in yourself can carry you past your fears
and the already known.

Constructed vs. Conditioned Reality Show more
The logical use of ’emptiness’ as a Buddhist concept is to show us that the World we inhabit is constructed. We construct the World that we experience through our senses, perceptions, consciousness and concepts. As well, our shared World is socially constructed. But beyond this constructed World is Reality, which we call Nature, which is not constructed. It is Conditioned, i.e. dependently originated, as all things are conditioned, but not constructed.
Dharma as a Naturalist Algorithm Show more
When people write about Buddhist Naturalism (or any naturalized religion) they usually mean taking the basic doctrines and practices of the religion and ‘naturalizing’ them to be congruent with the contemporary cultural paradigm...
But what I am proposing now is an opposite process: use the Dharma as a Naturalist Algorithm to ‘spiritualize’ the basic tenets of the physical and social sciences and contemporary culture...
"Prince Harry Meditates!"
I read this headline in a tabloid at the Newsagent's just now.
As far as I'm concerned this is Good News.
Regardless of whether you're a Royalist, Communist, Anarchist, or any other "ist", the essence of what he's practicing transcends all ideologies and offers the hope of actually uniting people instead of dividing.
