I0TA's News


Aye, this is a self advertisement post.

But let's get serious. I usually write music for more than just the purpose of entertaining some strangers and friends. Usually they are for different purposes, whether it was something fresh to listen to when I smoke weed, high on DMT, biking, emotional drunken time, long hour of work, philosophically or politically tempted. But mostly work, and something to listen for not to be bored me out when I stuck on the Gardiner Expressway or 404 when commuting work-home for hours because some idiot got in accident for distracted driving. Yeah the music I made are mainly for me to ease my mind, and getting on with my life.

Here are the top 10 tracks I use to listen for working, driving, reading, coding, gaming and exercising:

Hack The Planet (Radical)

Skybreak

Faith in Freedom

Lucid Circle

HOFA SYSTEM Basic

2017-10-31 22:39:20 by I0TA

6170223_150950395832_freeware.jpgSYSTEM Basic is a modular plugin with 22 modules that can be patched together to create a variety of multi-effect setups. The plugin comes with delay, reverb, compression, EQ, distortion, panning, gate, gain, and other FX modules, along with a set of tools to enable multi-band processing, parallel processing, M/S splitting, etc. The interface can be resized freely, providing enough space to accommodate complex patches with more than a dozen individual effects.



To quote from the article:

In my career as a psychologist, I have talked with hundreds of people previously diagnosed by other professionals with oppositional defiant disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, anxiety disorder and other psychiatric illnesses, and I am struck by (1) how many of those diagnosed are essentially anti-authoritarians, and (2) how those professionals who have diagnosed them are not.

Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously. Evaluating the legitimacy of authorities includes assessing whether or not authorities actually know what they are talking about, are honest, and care about those people who are respecting their authority. And when anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority—sometimes aggressively and sometimes passive-aggressively, sometimes wisely and sometimes not.

Some activists lament how few anti-authoritarians there appear to be in the United States. One reason could be that many natural anti-authoritarians are now psychopathologized and medicated before they achieve political consciousness of society’s most oppressive authorities.

How you become the authority:

I have found that most psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals are not only extraordinarily compliant with authorities but also unaware of the magnitude of their obedience. And it also has become clear to me that the anti-authoritarianism of their patients creates enormous anxiety for these professionals, and their anxiety fuels diagnoses and treatments.

Schizos are not schizo at all, they are smarter than you:

I have also spent a great deal of time with people who had at one time in their lives had thoughts and behavior that were so bizarre that they were extremely frightening for their families and even themselves; they were diagnosed with schizophrenia and other psychoses, but have fully recovered and have been, for many years, leading productive lives. Among this population, I have not met one person whom I would not consider a major anti-authoritarian. Once recovered, they have learned to channel their anti-authoritarianism into more constructive political ends, including reforming mental health treatment.

Many anti-authoritarians who earlier in their lives were diagnosed with mental illness tell me that once they were labeled with a psychiatric diagnosis, they got caught in a dilemma. Authoritarians, by definition, demand unquestioning obedience, and so any resistance to their diagnosis and treatment created enormous anxiety for authoritarian mental health professionals; and professionals, feeling out of control, labeled them “noncompliant with treatment,” increased the severity of their diagnosis, and jacked up their medications. This was enraging for these anti-authoritarians, sometimes so much so that they reacted in ways that made them appear even more frightening to their families.

There are anti-authoritarians who use psychiatric drugs to help them function, but they often reject psychiatric authorities’ explanations for why they have difficulty functioning. So, for example, they may take Adderall (an amphetamine prescribed for ADHD), but they know that their attentional problem is not a result of a biochemical brain imbalance but rather caused by a boring job. And similarly, many anti-authoritarians in highly stressful environments will occasionally take prescribed benzodiazepines such as Xanax even though they believe it would be safer to occasionally use marijuana but can’t because of drug testing on their job

Religion, like the drug you are taking, is to control you

In an earlier dark age, authoritarian monarchies partnered with authoritarian religious institutions. When the world exited from this dark age and entered the Enlightenment, there was a burst of energy. Much of this revitalization had to do with risking skepticism about authoritarian and corrupt institutions and regaining confidence in one’s own mind. We are now in another dark age, only the institutions have changed. Americans desperately need anti-authoritarians to question, challenge, and resist new illegitimate authorities and regain confidence in their own common sense.

And how any potential anarchist and socialist being painted as "crazy"

In every generation there will be authoritarians and anti-authoritarians. While it is unusual in American history for anti-authoritarians to take the kind of effective action that inspires others to successfully revolt, every once in a while a Tom Paine, Crazy Horse, or Malcolm X come along. So authoritarians financially marginalize those who buck the system, they criminalize anti-authoritarianism, they psychopathologize anti-authoritarians, and they market drugs for their “cure.”

Your mind is not ill, the illness is the system

Many people with severe anxiety and/or depression are also anti-authoritarians. Often a major pain of their lives that fuels their anxiety and/or depression is fear that their contempt for illegitimate authorities will cause them to be financially and socially marginalized; but they fear that compliance with such illegitimate authorities will cause them existential death.

Like Sole said, one word,

CAPITALISM

Enjoy your privileged life while it lasts.



This is a huge news to those who's into modular DSP programming in audio production. VCV Rack is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

From an admirer of Phonometrologist

2017-10-22 16:58:24 by I0TA

Phonometrologist is a interesting person. Every word he spoke is thoughtful or deep. Dude is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge. But his music is what gets me even more. Like, he improves hugely in every track he churned out. How the fuck A City Not Forsaken did not win in NGADM is something still quizzed me til this day. And Willow Wasteland: Fantasia is basically something out of this world. Triumphal Entry and Mayya Malyshka are the stuff you only hear by top producer in film score.

Yeah, check out his stuff. They are stuff will change your view on music.

Also, Best Service Engine Artists Library with nearly 2 GB of samples! Completely free for all!.


Finally, Sonixinema Resonate



I'm gonna take a break from producing electronic music. Maybe for 2 months or so. I want to focus on orchestra, cinematic, classical and even jazz. Those are the fields I'm lacking. Stuff I upload here gonna take much longer time to make, but they are going to be better quality and not being milled out like in a day.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I also just registered for Beginner Music Theory and Beginner Piano classes for adult. Yay the douche bag who was anti-theory, finally take his time learning it. So much for the tolerant douche!

Another thing, I want to expand my portfolio. Maybe I'll reconsider AudioJungle. Also tone down my shit posting. Meanwhile, I'll redirect my trolling effort to VI-Control, it's more fun busting the pros there than the boring younglings here.

Last, I'm going to make more fractal... I've been planning to release all my fractal flames, after that drive corrupt shit happened two months ago messed my backup, I kinda lost all the old ones. But I'll salvage as much I could find. So, the stuff I'm planning to open source: fractal flames, an unfinished Kontakt engine, midi, FLP files, SFX samples and about 10 GB of convolution Impulse Responses used in "Earth Will Consume Your Children". All of them will be available on torrent.


Stay tuned.
