I started this blog with the purpose of writing my tech-related discoveries. But thanks to my high school with a technician degree, I’m without the right amount of time for completing drafts that are on my desktops (notes ad infinitum).

The focus now is building some electronic circuit and using it for my recordings and performances (school-gigs). The Hackintosh guide will advance in a future (where I got an i3 rig for Mountain Lion).


Hackintoshing – Part IV

Yesterday I killed my rig. I got a new processor, Celeron E3400, switched and installed; all was working, even the thermal/fan/voltage sensors started working through MenuStats 3 (free, with a key easily findable).

There is a warranty sticker on the top of the processor.

I thought that was all right. With new DSDT and SSDT I could get SpeedStep. So, I booted a Lubuntu 13.04 Live CD, through USB, extracted the ACPI tables using acpidump and extracted the tables with acpixtract.

So I went to /Extra and copypasted the new stuff. Suddenly, a kernel panic appeared. I restored the old .asl files and the HDD with the system partition locked up because of so many random reboots.

Right now, there is another attempt in reinstalling SL from iATKOS distro. I thought in a ride with Mountain Lion, but my DVD drive isn’t helping me.

Music recommendation: Zefirina Bomba

Zefirina Bomba started in 2003 with a sound experimentation idea. Using percussive elements, collages with declassed poetry, psychedelic and hardcore.

The band have a nice history. They didn’t have enough money for buying an electric guitar. So they built one with an old acoustic guitar. And then, there we over 250 gigs/shows through almost all the states of Brazil and main cultural centers and spaces. I knew the sound of those dudes in October 2010 – while watching a free festival in Jardim de Alah.

Music recommendation: Música Vulgar Para Corações Surdos

Música Vulgar Para Corações Surdos is an intentionally pathological album. Pulp stories about daily life in the metropolis and the disorders inherent to inability to adapt to urban social life. Anxiety in the little habits, the rush, the process that generates the naturalness of making invisible neighbors, the taxi-driver or the other hundreds of people crossing driveways of any major city in the world. Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai or New York. Released on 16 May 2011.

Vulgar Music For Deaf Hearts. I found this free digital album while surfing the internet. My friends liked it and I’m hooked on it. I tend to like psychedelic music. Lately I’ve heard a lot indie rock. You can listen / download here and here.

Announcing where you can hear my recordings. Here is my SoundCloud page.

So… what? That will be the place for testing recordings of my DIY audio projects and covers. I have an idea for my band (at school): play all the music styles with a rock groove.

Wait for updates.

Also: I’m looking for people with free time and some experience with DAWs. I want to make music through Internet. Collaborative music.
