Hey! I am new to this instance and figured I would write a new introduction. You can call me Dice Game, I am a multi ethnic and mixed indigenous person. I am a two spirit/non binary girl and I use she/they pronouns. I think for the most part I will be microblogging resources and stuff I am reading but I may share the occasional song, thought or project I am working on. I am really happy to be here (: 🎲

Went and printed off the Krampus Postcards! The votes tied so I ended up printing some of both, and in addition decided to print this one off as a more friendly option

I just started reading the @nrg reading list! It is really good and I am hoping to read it all through sometime soon

(Anti) Music Theory: Harry Partch 

"The child of former missionaries, composer Harry Partch grew up in a musical family, and at an early age taught himself to play the guitar, harmonium, clarinet, and other instruments. During his early school years in Arizona and New Mexico he had some rudimentary music lessons, which he found unexciting and conventional. He wrote a considerable amount of music as a youth, but set it all afire in a pot-bellied stove around 1930. Partch's intensive studies in music history and intonation led him to reject conventional Western tunings and musical techniques. He devised a 43-note octave, and started adapting and building instruments to perform the new kind of music he was envisioning."

(Anti) Music Theory 

Is John Coltranes circle of fifths an anti-music theory? Whether intentional or not it exposes Western Music theory as well as simplifies and expands upon the circle of fiths in a manner that emphasizes scale, and sounds potential in an endless way. His circle of fifths deconstructs Western Music, whereas the Western Scale enforces its simplistic 12 note scale as the basis for its expansion and anything outside of it is considered “microtonal” “out of tune” “noise”?

Krampus (Imagery) 

I think I want to celebrate Krampus this year on the night of December 5th? Like drop off wicked presents to people (friend or foe) anonymously? Maybe use one of these images as a postcard and wrap the gifts in black? I think that would be cute. Just an idea. Let me know which image you like more. Also if you have any ideas you would like to share and are thinking about participating yourself I would love to hear! 👹
