Music

My music site is here. I was a member of Mother Mallard from 1998-2000. From 1992 to 1995 I was a member of Red Letter.

Music Software

I’ve worked on system software for music and audio since 2000.

Beatnik logoFrom August 1999 through February 2000, I worked for Beatnik.


In early 1999, I was a founding member of a new music technology company, Zero Crossing. But we couldn’t agree with Gibson on the spinoff deal, and they tried to reassimilate us into Opcode, then sued us for allegedly misappropriating the source code we had returned to them. The case was quickly settled. Someone wrote an interesting account of those events.

OMS Opcode From 1987 until early 1999 I was a programmer for Opcode Systems, Inc.. In my employment there I created the Open Music System (OMS), a set of MIDI system services for Macintosh and Windows. If you’re familiar with Opcode software, you might curious to know that I also wrote the Acadia audio subsystem, Vision’s track overview and part of its MIDI-to-notation code, the Studio 4 and 5 software, and version 1 of Galaxy Plus Editors.
