Doing some SVG work today, what a lovely standard

Here I am playing one of my exercises (it takes me a couple of seconds to get in the zone)

Decorative faces on buildings are called "mascarons" - what a great word and tradition!

Okay... Twine is pretty cool, I admit. Working prototype in a couple of hours...

First impressions of Twine - it turns out there are two different incompatible syntaxes and I was reading a tutorial in the non-default syntax. Hmmm

Trying out a new platform today: Twine! I'm making a very quick sketch of a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure educational game idea

I made a list of my favourite writers, bloggers and oddballs on the internet, heavy on the countercultural vibes, oldschool game dev and general mind expansion... check it out if you're bored! kevinhiggins.dev/links.html

I've been reading Chinese wisdom texts a couple of verses at a time over breakfasts, since Christmas. This morning I finished the Daodejing; next up, the Zhuanghzi, which looks fun... butterflies dreaming they're humans and so on

Having a relaxing evening organising my softsynths in Reaper... ahhh

First batch of third species (four notes against one) harmonised from below. It's a mixed bag. I'm following the rules but only vaguely groping towards the balance which makes a melody listenable. Gonna stick with third species for a while

Audible improvement in this batch of third species exercises... I'm getting a feel for balancing leaps, even multiple leaps, against scale-wise movement (I guess that's the whole point, isn't it)
