Looking for writing by/about austistic composers or autistic musicians or autistic issues in music?

I had a student ask about neurodiversity and obviously a lot of trans people are autistic, so this means noise and vaporwave, but I don't know who is out as on the spectrum?

I'm guessing it will be younger people as people my age generally were not assessed for this in our youths.

(My spouse is convinced I'm on the spectrum, which I find annoying. Just because my uncle my dad my brother and every male relative . . . .)

Google scholar results are all like "can music cure autism" and just ugh no

@catherine I knew all those dead german men were good for something.

@wauz

Was my post offensive? or?

@celesteh
No. Just a joke about dialects. A 'Trumm' (compare: Trümmer) is just a large piece of something. In this case: Speck (bacon)

Ah, all I could tell was that it was a dead animal.

I am definitely not on any kind of bacon, even including (alas) veggie bacon.

I prefer for myself an omnivore nutrition style, but love to cook without any animalic ingrediences, because that's a challenge. There, I never try to replace meat with mock meat, I just use other recipe. Both non-animalic and animalic eaters liked it so far, so I think I do it ok.
For sure we should size down or animalic protein consumotion, both for health an environment.

@celesteh I was going to @ a few ppl and then I thought "Oh. Wait a second..."
@vfrmedia

@celesteh there might be articles about Gary Human around? he's been quite open about his autism.

@gid Is it Gary Human? That's a provocative name but it seems to belong to a bitcoin guy?

@celesteh yeah phone keyboard autocorrected Numan to Human

@celesteh
I have no ides about writing, but susan boyle and adam young (owl city) are both autistic

I also vaguely remember abt one guy who does EDM and while he only releases then if they're perfect, has apparently made like 10k songs. I can't find him now but wow i am finding other autistic musicians, including a band called The AutistiX

Idk how many of them have writing abt it tho, but it might be worth getting individual names and searching for any writing
