So I've managed to avoid any real C programming until now. Then TorgoX dangles the carrot of "collaboration with Brian Eno" in front of me. Now I'm working on permutation code in C and busily learning Cocoa so I can put a pretty-pretty face on an app to play the Long Now chimes in OS X.
So far, I've adapted one of Apple's CoreAudio samples to play on particular permutation of the Long Now scale; now I need to translate the permutation algorithm into C.
Sometimes I can't decide if I'm a programmer who's obsessed with music or a musician who's obssessed with computers.
