Made an improved version of my #vst #synth, find out more on the blog https://drumchant.wordpress.com/2021/04/15/synth-update/
Been listening to Mozart's G Minor String Quintet a lot... because I'm jazz-trained, a lot of #classical playing strikes me as rushing the tempo - but I wonder are there any contemporary string groups that play with a more metronomic groove?
If I've time later I also may also play with this particle #vfx software https://www.rigzsoft.co.uk/timelinefx-particle-effects-editor/ - I'm such, such a fan of gratuitously sensuous and fun tools
I was mentioning the alluring titles of Westerners' commentaries on Daoism - here's one that's available online http://cjfraser.net/publications/skepticism-and-value-in-the-zhuangzi/
Wow nice maths-for-coders piece. Now I have a practical idea how I'd code spline interpolation, unlike after reading the Wikipedia article! https://codeplea.com/introduction-to-splines
These books about the ancient Chinese philosopher Zhuanghzi all have such appealing titles. "Vagueness, Transformation and Paradox", anyone? https://ctext.org/resource.pl?node=2712&if=en
Spent two hours drafting an idea I've had for *months* for my alt blog... but came up with only fragments #Writing
I blogged about my latest #Programming self-study project in #Java https://drumchant.wordpress.com/2021/04/08/revisiting-a-classic/
I'm gonna go with the Refresh Data pattern where you recreate clean, known data every time you run a batch of tests
Well that was handy - I found some useful framings for how to deal with #test #Data in this article, that apply even to my little local-only "Huffman encoding" software project https://testguild.com/4-test-data-strategies-automation/
#counterpoint study has been quite fruitful recently. Here are ten variations on a melody by Johann Joseph Fux. Even though this is still a basic exercise, it already feels closer to "composing" than "puzzle-solving". (Also the minor mode tempts me into delightful chromaticisms!) #Music #musictheory #musescore #practice
