@adriendittrick Welcome to the Fediverse, Adrien!

Feel free to @ me if you have any questions :acnl_gyroid:

@liliaco Yeah true, I think accessibility is important to a lot more peoples' experiences than people think.

the again, every computer program is also a tiny utopia—if only we can take the world out of context, i can tell you exactly how it works—and maybe it's that *formulation* (not the program that implements it, necessarily, or the artifacts it produces) that remains open, a permanent source of renewal. and in that sense procgen rhetorically operates like any other utopia (which brings us back to _The Dispossessed_ subtitled of course "An Ambiguous Utopia")

@liliaco I'm just very sensitive to some sounds. It's fine on recordings, but live the cymbals irritate me a bit.

That is a really cool goal! I try to keep a list of game making related resources here:

gamemaking.tools/wiki/index.ph

so if you have anything to add that'd be really appreciated!! It's something I'm focused on at the moment with web-stuff in particular at the moment, but I have a lot of catching up to do.

My birthday wish is for Lana Polansky to join Mastodon please.

@liliaco (whoops sent toot to early) So you play other instruments then too?

@liliaco I got to play drums a little in highschool and took to it pretty well, but never went past that. I kinda hate cymbals....... But I do have a drum machine :)

Yeah, I think learning by ear really needs a teacher. A cool thing was that there were lots of blind students. The reason my parents started me on it was that they were told I was going blind too, but that didn't eventuate and I get by pretty fine with glasses now.

@liliaco (gosh I still hear music in violin fingerings, if that makes sense. Like instead of hearing A or B or G or something it's numbers 1-4 corresponding to the finger used for the note).

Good luck!

I'm learning about drum machines and synths now, but it's an expensive interest :(

@liliaco :acnl_heart: I never actually learnt to read music quickly. I learnt Suzuki Method, and I think the basis of that is to learn by ear. Really gave me a lot I think, and I really appreciate it now;even if I just wanted to learn the drums at the time.

Like we'd always get sheet music and could understand it, but I could never like play from it even when I started playing in a little orchestra.

@liliaco

Welcome to GM.S Lia!

Not sure if you're new to the Fediverse--let me know if you have any questions.

I also learnt the Violin for like six years, so you can test my memory and ask about that too ;3

@sg honestly making my own little super personalised os is like a dream

Aunque le falta algo de trabajo, sobre todo en el pelo no estoy seguro de querer seguirle por el momento:
