Here I have gathered some quotes about learning music. “The concept that music express something is generally accepted. However, chess does not tell stories. Mathematics does not evoke emotions. Similarly, from the point of view of pure aesthetics, music does not express extramusical.” — Arnold Schoenberg, Fundamentals of Musical Composition Continue Reading
Today I have released the version 1.9 of Geonkick synthesizer. Features: – Oscillator can be set as sample source. The sample can be loaded from WAV, FLAC or OGG. Now Geonkick can play and mix samples too. – Option to tune audio output in accordance with the note. Central untuned Continue Reading
Here is a short demonstration of a new feature that I developed for Geonkick, and that offers the possibility to load samples into Geonkick and mix them with other synthesized sounds. Every oscillator can become a sample. It can load WAV, FALC and OGG.
Aster playing with Geonkick with which I could synthesize interesting bells and very realistic trumpet and truba, I started to think about a more general synthesizer. Geonkick acts mainly as a substractive synthesizer, and some FM synthesis was added. If I’ll make a little more sophisticated the oscillators, move the Continue Reading

I have decided not to post any technical on Geontime after this post. Geontime will be kept about music only, my tracks, composition mixing maybe. I’ll setup something separate for things that relate to music software I am developing.
I have installed activity pub plugin, and I can see my WordPress instance in the federated social network. From mastodon I can see number of posts, but still no posts, and see how many users follows. Probably I need to wait.
