First fully-Linux EP is out, I'm stoked [glitch electonica]

Postby somedude » Thu May 23, 2019 2:07 am

I've been using linux as my main DAW for about 10 years now, and I was able to go fully linux for my music project with the recent-ish appearance of fully linux solutions that work well for me (I'm using bitwig, but yeah I know there are a bunch of other solid ones). I think more and more vendors are starting to take linux seriously as a market for fully native software and I'm happy for it because I was doing a few monstrosities in the very end to connect ableton via wine with pure data and jack and it was all a hot mess (I'm one of those musicians blessed with an unhealthy dependence on ableton-like setups). But in the past few years I've been exploring a fully linux setup, using Arch as my distro, qjack, and bitwig. The nice thing is that now I feel that exploring analog synths and specially modular is much more organic for some reason, and I've been incorporating that into my musical process, as well as extreme sampling. While all this was happening I've been honing my own skills in the direction I want to go, and for the first time in years I feel like I have a well integrated musical setup to sacrifice my social life to. I also took the step to distribute my music more properly, and so this EP is the high point for me of a bunch of different things going on with my development as a musician, not the least being fully integrating linux into my whole experience. I wanted to share with you the result because I'm happy about it and because I really believe linux is becoming the best environment to make music (at least for me) second to none.

If you like electronic stuff might be good for you, has a few different influences like Ryuichi Sakamoto and Autechre and Sasha lol:

Had a listen, but it's not really my 'thing'. However, I hope it does well for you.
