Introduction: I'm a software engineer/musician/oceanographer, passionate about open source, data, and the environment. Originally from Brazil, I live in California since 2012, and have also lived in the Netherlands back in 2004.

I recently learned about Gemini, and decided to take the plunge. I started working on a new version of my blog engine ( that supports Gemini.

I now have a Gemini "capsule" at gemini://

"Daniel sees the ocean", an instrumental song telling the story of a boy that sees the ocean for the first time.

"Piercing the fog", a song composed with the -Z and the Hologram .

A friend tried to visit my blog:

"The website is blacklisted and not safe to use." -- Google Safe Browsing Checker

And this one is "Siren's lament". I tried to create the sound of a sad mermaid using the Sirin for this one.

I recorded 3 jams exploring the Moog Sirin today. I had the OP-Z sequencing the Sirin and processing the sound via the IO track.

This is song #3, "I can, should you?":

Another OP-Z song, this one using the Moog Minitaur for a nice off-beat bass.

Climate Change Is The Greatest Threat To Public Health, Top Medical Journals Warn

The rapidly warming climate is the "greatest threat" to global public health, more than 200 medical journals are warning in an unprecedented joint statement that urges world leaders to cut heat-trapping emissions to avoid "catastrophic harm to health that will be impossible to reverse."

The editorial, which was published in leading journals such as The Lancet, The New England Journal of Medicine and the British Medical Journal, says the world can't wait for the COVID-19 pandemic to pass before addressing climate change.

Huh, "Naked lady" in this case is the name of the song, it's the name of the flower in the cover image.
