So I was excited to see music blogger Matthew G Davidson (Stretta) offer his take on the classic work of Budd & Eno. Here’s a little background on the piece, Where Abundance Lies:
This is the first time I’ve worked with tehn’s mlr. I’ve seen fantastic uses of mlr in a wide range of styles. It is the signature monome application.
A while back, a programmer friend at work opened up the source code for a freely-available application, modified and recompiled it to serve his needs better. This stirred some feelings of envy in me as a non-programmer. How great would it be to take a mature application and make a few tweaks to make it perfect for your needs? Well, if you’re familiar with mlr, you may be able to tell I made a few tweaks. Huge thanks to Brian Crabtree for making such a great application and keeping it open.
