These pretty closely mirror youtube hotkeys
Who made this?
Hi. I'm Ian. I built this self-hosted SoundCloud alternative using SvelteKit with Notion as a backend using a Notion API wrapper I wrote myself. I did it this way because music platforms largely suck, and they're only getting worse. So we said fuck it: We'll do it ourselves and own our own means of distribution.
It'll be a constant work in progress for a long time. There is (or will be) a writeup of the technical side here.
No no, I mean the music. Who made the music? 🙄
The music was made by me and my bandmates, all also members of Partials! Folk Art spawned during the pandemic when it was hard and rare to make music in person. So we went about trying to develop a system of musical languages that we all could "speak" fluently, with the goal of generating tracks start-to-finish in a single day. Some are messy, some are catchy, some straight up aren't mastered, mixed or even finished. But this particular showcase isn't about completeness. It's about a single-stroke haiku approach to songwriting. Capture a mood, and freeze it in place.
These tracks here are the result of the past 2 years.
