Hello! I'm an old media artist who makes music. I also write and talk about low-tech computer crafts and cultures. And I'm an occasional prankster.

Quote 1

Some people call me a hacker, but I consider myself more like a Turing complete user. I just make stuff. I’m not inventing or creating new sounds with these machines. It’s more like I’m discovering them. They were always there.

Quote 3

Ze big questions: What is work, what is art, and what is value? As old fashioned as it might sound, quality matters to me. I’m fascinated with people who take the time to really learn how to work with a medium/instrument/tool. But I am also fascinated by beginner experiments and non-productive mistakes. The master slave dichotomy!

Quote 2

I think we can never completely understand what a piece of technology is or does. And I don’t think humans are in control of what we design. Even a very simple digital system is beyond our grasp, beyond our understanding. Maybe it deserves some kind of respect? On the other hand, technology that is clearly designed or destined to control, monopolize and manipulate should be treated accordingly.
