The more that I learn about programming computers, the more that I realise the phenomenal potential that lies within them. I’m also constantly learning (through both days of debugging and one-line breakthroughs) that even the tiniest changes (a single ‘yes’ or ‘no’) within huge systems can make the difference between something profoundly beautiful and something that’s completely useless. Hands down the most exciting thing that i’ve been learning however, is that (now, more than ever) these things actually have a phenomenal potential to learn themselves.(more…)
Its been a long time coming, but I’m finally getting happy with the rhythm/beat generation. Here’e a link to DL a few mp3s that Jen threw together tonight.
Jen’s Demo Beats
She now has a strong idea of how to write fills, compose kit work / beats for any rational time signature, structure songs and pick instruments all by herself!
It features Reza Ali‘s UI widget system (sliders, number dialers, text input boxes, buttons, toggles, etc) that I’ve been integrating for the past couple of weeks, as well as the Envelope Editor widget I’m contributing to Rez’s collection.
“In 2013 I moved into a castle, finished uni, released a soundtrack, dived into c++, scored grants for Jen, became obsessed with AI, played Burning Man, met beautiful people, spent the festive season with friends and fam and did all of the other things I have forgotten that were awesome things!
This year I’ll take Jen public, explore Japan, learn to talk to computers better, dive deeper into AI, play a generative set, release Limit Theory with Josh Parnell, meet beautiful people, spend the festive season with friends and fam and do all of the other things that I have no idea are coming that are awesome things!”Anyway, here is the latest glance at Jen,
“CodeMapper” is an alpha / work in progress of a program I started working on about a week back. I’m developing it in the openFrameworks library for C++ with the aim of making coding in C & C++ a more visual experience.
Simply drag your source code folder onto codeMapper and it will generate a neat, coherent map from your header files. Rather than trying to consistently keep a mental map of your complex code or trying to keep track with notes and commenting alone, codeMapper can assist you in getting your head around large multi-file projects. It will also display hints for making your header inheritance neater and more efficient.
Aaaaaand ITS LIVE
A huge thanks to everyone who has supported us! Hope you enjoy it!
