What I’m working on
- Not getting infected with SARS–CoV–2
- My forever in-progress interactive music performance system.
- Day-job work. Recently (summer 2018) changed role to ‘Lead Engineer, Audio+Music’. Part of that time includes work as part of the MIDI Manufacturers Association Prototype Working Group to help build out tools for developers working on upcoming MIDI 2.0 products.
- Rebuilding my trombone chops. (I played more or less daily for 15-16 years, from the ages of 9-25, then came to pretty much a dead stop for the next 26 years except for some sporadic attempts. Getting things back in shape is harder than I expected.)
Other things that I should be working on
- Writing music
- Reading something besides my RSS feeds
- Pruning out my RSS feeds
What I’m done with
- Keeping on top of a major home renovation project.
- Getting ready to travel to London, where I’ll present my MIDI 2.0 work as part of the annual Audio Developer Conference there.
- After that, more MIDI 2.0 talk at the Winter NAMM show
…and then MIDI 2.0 for Musicians at SXSW 2020.
What I’m deliberately not working on
- Preparing to present my workshop at SXSW 2019 Panel, “Native Cross-Platform Development With C++ & JUCE” and our meetup (done! Successfully!)
- Abandoning an in-progress blogging/web publishing engine that I was writing using Flask/MongoDb. I have better things to do, and I already have WordPress installed here.
