Jamoma Workshop at Stetson

July 25th, 2015

One of the highlights of my work on Jamoma has been the workshops. Not only are they opportunities to visit interesting places, but they provide time and space to focus my efforts on coding with a set of truly remarkable collaborators. The workshops are unique in the way they get everyone involved in Jamoma energized [...]

LowkeyNW package on GitHub

January 23rd, 2015

Winter break is often a time to catch up on things. Without the usual daily and weekly routines of the semester, I often find I can pour long hours of focussed attention into a project between all the family festivities. This year, I had been think about my previous Max external development since talking to Eric Lyon about his book while in [...]

Jamoma Workshop in Albi France

June 15th, 2013

Some of [...]

What I learned from my Fulbright

The Professional Development Committee at Stetson sponsors a regular roundtable series in which faculty present recent scholarly work to their peers at the university.

Fulbright Endings

January 25th, 2013

Music technology is a discipline sits between technical and artistic concerns. I came to Norway on a Fulbright grant with every intention of focussing exclusively on an undeniably technical project, telling myself and others that I had to put making music on hold for awhile to focus on writing code for Jamoma. But several things [...]
