It’s been a productive month for music. “Twenty-Four” is on major streaming services: Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music. On YouTube I’ve got a performance of “Before the War” (with the Deluge, Matriarch, and my Eurorack case forming the most complex and comprehensive patch I’ve ever created) and have done several live streams. More to come!
Check out ‘Isoluna Beach’ in all the places!
It’s also on my SoundCloud.
I’ve now got a micro-mini-album available on all major streaming platforms (and a few I’d never heard of):
check out ‘Cable Heart’.
I’ve also posted a few new tracks to my SoundCloud recently, including one JUST NOW.
I recently discovered VCV Rack and have been blown away by it (starting with the fact that it runs on Linux).
As a learning exercise I tried to build a Moog DFAM equivalent, and it turns out to be pretty playable.
I won’t claim it sounds as good or is as playable as a real DFAM, but I think it’s pretty complete.
Here’s a piece of music I created sometime around 2002. The distorted 808 bass drum is a bit much right from the start. I like some of the string harmonies and the synth parts that come in later. The layering gets too crowded eventually. The portamento (glide) on the heavy synth that comes in at about 2:00 it too slow, and that tone is … a lot.

Heroku is a platform-as-a-service provider that makes hosting
web applications easy and, at the (low-traffic) hobby level, free.
Deployment is as easy as pushing to a special git remote repository.
This is a written version of
my Clojure/West 2015 presentation,
for those who’d rather read than watch a video.
It goes into more detail and has some updates for Clojure 1.8.
I loved this show
so much as a kid!
I can’t quite say this video gives me goosebumps as soon as the music starts, but it’s close.
I’ve been learning the Rust programming language recently.
You can see my Rust sandbox on GitHub.
In addition to the tutorial
a decimal number type
Luhn Algorithm for validating credit card numbers.
I intend to eventually produce a written version of this presentation,
but haven’t gotten around to it yet. For now, you can watch the video below
and look at the source on GitHub.
