I am a composer, sound designer, hardware designer and programmer who is enthusiastic about gaming and game mods. I feel like gaming is the future of multimedia entertainment and the storytelling of today. I am especially interested in generative music and interactive music, that further immerses the user in the virtual world. I have built robots that compose music, data-driven algorithmic music, forward thinking electronica track, full symphonic works, multiple chamber works and have played in and composed for award-winning electro acoustic ensembles.

@getify or a single-element angular template: "<div class=\"a b\" />"

Jul 27 2014, 1:20pm

@getify I see how single quotes in a css selector are more attractive to you. leading ' to avoid $el.html("<element class=\"a b\" />");
