Nachdem es aktuell kein in Frage kommendes Masterstudium in Wien gibt (bzw. für das am ehesten in Frage kommende die Bewerbungsfrist erst wieder im März ist), stellt sich natürlich die Frage was ich in nächster Zeit machen werde.

Ich bin also auf Jobsuche! Wenn ihr was habt gern her damit!

Studium: Politikwissenschaft, davor HTL für Elektronik und technische Informatik
Grundkenntnisse in R, Python, Javascript
Sprachen: EN & DE Verhandlungssicher; ÖGS ca. A1
Ich liebe Recherchetätigkeiten!

current status: trying to install some apps on arm64 macOS via homebrew

why homebrew? trying to use Craft results in some linking errors because some base libraries are installed as x86_64 (Intel) binaries which the linker ignores as i'm building for arm64; resulting in "Undefined symbols for architecture arm64" errors. oh well

...

at least breeze-icons installed cleanly from homebrew so far :D

I just want you guys to know that the multiple *years* I've had my music on Spotify and iTunes have still made me less money than the first two weeks of the same albums on Bandcamp.

Please support artists directly if you can.

What does anti-bias training have to do with audio engineering? 

What does anti-bias training have to do with audio engineering?

One time, a film maker called me up because she wanted to use a hubub of voices as a music statement but it wasn't coming off. I listened to the audio and knew just the thing! A resonant 70s style low pass filter would keep the timbres but jettison the words. I ran her vocal recording through my synthesiser and proudly returned with the improved audio.

She listened. "This does sound a lot better," she said, "but you've completely prioritised the men's voices and removed the women."

Cis normativity aside, she was right. My process had made altos much softer and pretty much nuked sopranos. I had to go back and organise each audio sample by vocal range and run the filter multiple times. It was time consuming, but the result was much nicer.

She noticed this because she knew what it was to be silenced according to vocal range - something that has gradually faded from my mind as its no longer a regular occurrence for me. If I'd been working with a fellow tenor or a bass, we might never have noticed. The audio would have been worse and the while project subtly effected by unconscious bias.

Instead, when the film was released, a reviewer praised the sound in that section.

Unconscious bias isn't just unfair, it makes *your* work worse.

what should i name my next project

wrong answers only

yesterday i learned a lesson i already knew about proprietary software

i plugged in my old iPad and asked it to download some episodes of Behind the Attraction to watch on the plane

then i put it in my bag and eventually boarded. once we got to 10,000 feet, i pulled out my iPad and was greeted with, "Please go to the App Store to update Disney+"

except, of course, i was in the air on a regional jet with no wireless, and i didn't need that update anyway because i just wanted to watch downloaded episodes!

anyway piracy is in every way better and more ethical than using subscription streaming services
