Record an Album like a Hacker

02 Jan 2012

February is Record Production Month according to The Wire newspaper. Each year they issue a creative challenge for musicians to record 10 songs or 35 minutes of original music during the month of February.

I'm in. And I'm bringing my own mantra, "Record an Album like a Hacker."

Instead of guitars and keyboards, I'll be looking to text editors and IDEs to generate music. The two technologies I'll be focusing on are Impropmtu and Max.

  • Impromptu - OS X live coding environment based on scheme, core audio, and core graphics.
  • Max - visual programming for audio and video

Interested in collaborating? I'd love to hear from you.
