Hi! I'm Kasami, also known as KasamiKona or ksk.
I'm a programmer, hardware hacker, demoscener, and a weeb.
I have a CS degree but yet to do anything useful with it.
Any pronouns fine, I guess.
Within the demoscene I tend to use the ksk handle most often, as ksk^genshiken.
I was introduced to the scene years ago through Chaos Theory by Conspiracy, but only recently started getting into it myself. In 2021 after tweeting about some hardware hacking stuff I was contacted by stage7 asking what I knew about cheap bluetooth LED displays you can buy in a variety of cheap wearables. I happened to have the same kind and it turns out we both wanted to run Bad Apple on it, so we both got to work. I pulled the encryption key from a Chinese app and reversed the protocol while Stage worked on the video conversion, and we had it working within 48 hours.
Around the same time, Stage asked if I wanted to join their Genshiken demo group, so I did. We of course wanted to do something much fancier with the display tech, so we worked for several months to produce a demo called Bitmask. The demo was released at Euskal Encounter 2022 wild compo and won 1st prize. Of course it includes a Bad Apple segment :)
In the past I have also done some reverse-engineering and emulation work with other people's demos. So far this has mostly been porting and meddling with lft's various hardware demos, in particular their sound engines.
I have a small and quite disorganized presence on YouTube, with content including but not limited to:

Yes, I know this page sucks and could use some CSS. I'll work on it at some point, maybe.
