I set the circuit up to use a 40106 (Lunetta) oscillator with the output of the square wave fed into the FPGA pin. Then, I use this in the Verilog design to change the video in some way based on the value of the input. The concept reduces down to having an external clock, but it's fun to think of it in musical terms.

Music

I've been making a lot of new music lately. You can find it on the major music streaming services under the artist cerkit. My current favorite is Mercury 6.21.

3D Printing

I recently acquired a new resin 3D printer. I printed some highly detailed models with it. I then used a 3D sculpting program named Adobe Medium to create some sculptures using my Oculus Quest 2. I exported the sculptures as STL files and printed them with my new 3D printer. I was able to get some neat results.
