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.

I don't update my profile here very often, but I recently worked on a small thing that I figured those who listen to my music might like. Its just a very short animated intro and chiptunes track I made for a Usergroup I run in my city.

RT @digitalicarus: @ThunderPlains 2014 is shaping up nicely (http://t.co/Fe78HmWkyo). Pride in my Oklahoma origins rising :) @5imian @amand

@jagthedrummer @vlucas @DataChomp libraries should be open for extension and closed for modification. and with that im done.

Jul 22 2014, 7:34pm

@jagthedrummer @vlucas @DataChomp if you have to open all third party code and replace all the events = tight coupling, easy or not.

Jul 22 2014, 7:34pm

@vlucas @jagthedrummer @DataChomp And you audit every module, and turbolinks is an assumed 'core module'.. then go for it.

Jul 22 2014, 7:13pm

@vlucas @jagthedrummer @DataChomp Basic browser expectations are completely 'redone'. If you're doing all your code - front and back ...

Jul 22 2014, 7:13pm

@vlucas @jagthedrummer @DataChomp Yes, you can read the docs, but all your code is now tightly bound to the 'turbolinks universe'.

Jul 22 2014, 7:12pm

@DataChomp @jagthedrummer @vlucas ah. Got ya. That makes sense.

Jul 22 2014, 2:08pm

@jagthedrummer @vlucas not interested in a twitter debate, but you can't "opt out": it hijacks scope and major events like document ready.

Jul 22 2014, 2:06pm

@jagthedrummer @vlucas I am highly suspicious of anything server side that hijacks the life cycle of the client.

Jul 22 2014, 1:46pm

@jagthedrummer I'd be too chicken to abduct a rooster
