Finally. The deserts of theory are behind me. The gardens of programming lie ahead. I submitted my overlong master seminar paper to my advisor.
The paper presents a framework for developing innovative music composition software. The requirements that emerge from research heavily overlap with my intuitive predictions but, anyway, they'll make the master thesis more solid and grounded in research. Now, I'm just happy to return to modelling and prototyping HAIL (Human-Audio Interaction Lab) for the iPad.
