Some random music

Randomly generated music created using Processing Code

I actually made this quite a while ago, but decided to revisit it as I thought that I might do a little more in Processing this year. I know I’ve said that before. There’s no guarantee that I will in 2020, but I might.

I was always quite pleased with this sketch though. It was fun and interesting to play with. Above is just a video of the sketch in action as I can’t work out how to embed the sketch here so it can be played. I’d like to be able to do that too, but it might take me a little while for me to figure it out.

Anyway, if I managed to do anything else with Processing then I’ll share it too. That is, if it’s good enough.

No more littleBits

Last year I decided that I wasn’t doing anything interesting with my collection of littleBits components and modules, so I finally gave them up and sold them. I hope that they’ve all gone to good homes.

They were fun, and very useful at times. I did enjoy them, but I think I had got to a point where I’d stopped doing anything creative with them.

I made this last year after buying the kit far longer ago. It took a while to make as it was actually a little complex, but I enjoyed doing it. I don’t make a lot of models, but they are fun. I got this one from a seller on Etsy who also makes a few other fun music related models, but only a few.

It was actually a lot more difficult to make than I expected, or rather, it took quite a while to do it.

Daphne was an amazing woman, and I’m currently reading her book, “An Individual Note”, which is a good read. But more of that another time.

I want this and I really don’t

Part of me wants this just because it’s kind of cool that Haynes are making a little synth kit, although I’ve no idea why they would do that at all. It seems so strange, but there you go. I also know that if I got one and made it I wouldn’t really do much if at all with it and it would just gather dust for a long time.

So I’ve more or less decided not to get this. I think that’s probably best.
