Hello

I am a software developer and electronic music producer. I am interested in promoting a decentralised network for musicians and music enthusiasts.

I have created an instance for electronic music enthusiasts, and electro music makers at electro.social

This instance has open registration, and welcomes new participants.

As maintainer of this instance, I am operating some additional accounts (with permission) to develop interest in music.

I always think of 'Mathematische Modelle', from the Der Zyklus EP, II, as Heinrich Mueller's homage to Kraftwerk. This four track EP was originally released in 2001 on International Deejay Gigolo Records. This track and 'Elektronisches Zeitecho' were paired as a 12" in 2013 by Clone Aqualung.

Clone Records have posted a pretty cool photo of the DAT which contained Transllusion's A Moment of Insanity EP. I wonder how many more tapes of unreleased music they found in his studio? It does appear we can expect more new old music by James Stinson on Clone Aqualung in the future.

Thinking about AI super-intelligence since watching this short video:

youtu.be/e8HrKgYOqeQ

There are people working on computer super-intelligence. There's a difference between pattern-matching and reasoning, and a super-intelligence would have to be reasoning.

Even if it were the case that hardware is getting there, the closest that software probably gets us anytime soon is mimicking human intelligence, but what if there's more?

I figure it's more likely that biology and computers merge.
