software term. it's like a command to assign an initial value.

Oh, I see, like (name) initials or something. Makes more sense now.

Just now, very honest said:

software term. starting signal for something. 

Well that's what I thought but the sentence didn't make sense much and I didn't get how ppl arrived to abbreviation from that.

It's a loose convention, but capitalized variables are often constants you'll find on top of programs. Maybe I speculate too much, but the sentence makes sense. I still don't get why people read that as an abbreviation. I hear clearly that's it's kind of a… start of something they don't want to talk about ?

It could just be a term (jargon) referring to the system/software they use. Aren't many of their track titles based on a similar logic?

I think most everyone read and understood it as such, but in forum banter acronyms for the lols obv. ‘SIGN’ invites it.

I think that could be it...the name of their system.

Metaz form8 really is beautiful by the way, isn’t it? It’s like the soundscape to an infinite dream. The sound of loss and longing.

The thing is I've seen it on another forums that people started making acronyms based on that sentence from the interview.

But I’m not sure that art can be produced by computer. It may just be my limitations as a programmer. And it may be that someone will come along and apply machine learning in a way that’s actually emotionally gratifying. But for me personally, I can’t build systems that do that.

that's from Sean. the way i'm reading it implies he's tried it.

it's the names and postcodes of all the Gescom members and their sexual partners, converted to four digits in base 64 using a method that involves taking fridge magnet letters and setting them on fire.

Sean: "But I’m not sure that art can be produced by computer...I can't build systems that do that"

Third Member: "fu! I'm locking you guys out of the groupcode. I'm building my own. You dumb mortals have been holding my depravity back with this fluffy emosh!"
