megaphone yelling

This is me, at the moment—

  • Now working on a second recording studio audio brand, 51dB audio. This one is prêt‐à‐porter, sold & built in small series. Product formulation, design, parts and supplier selection, prototyping; all are happening at breakneck speed. Very different than my other audio gig. Speaking of…
  • Spending a good amount of time on product development and circuit design for tarragona audio. I am using all my knowledge on product making, design, electronics, creative work practices, web development… And still there are many more things to learn.
  • Studying the role of capacitors in tube amplifiers. I write about what I have learned.
  • Answering your questions on officehours.
  • More into meeting a few really interesting people than lots of people.
  • My studio is in a shop & cottage in central Berlin and I live there—with no separation of functions and music playing everywhere. I usually work alone; live together with Carmen.
  • Going around Berlin on my bicycle, running errands.
  • Cooking our meals and do the shopping at local markets and small shops. Reduced supermarket purchases to zero.
  • Reading: Collapse by Jared Diamond.

Now pages are Derek’s idea. I got to know about them via Eric. I’m Peter Sikking. Last updated late‑february ’18.
