a list of some things I've built, have a look around!
♪ Music tech
🎹 Sample library player on the web.I like sampling instruments, like my Rhodes electric piano which I've made into a sample library for Kontakt. Typically, a "demo" of a plugin or sample library is a pre-recorded track or video featuring the instrument. To actually try the virtual instrument, you need to download and install it.
As a weekend project, I wanted to create a fully interactive demo that you can play in the browser.
Just play it
Let it play for you
use a MIDI keyboard!
💡 Integrating REAPER and a smart bulb to turn red when recording.When your DAW telling you it's recording clearly isn't enough

Designs & concepts
a showcase of some of my UI designs
♫ A hackable music player concept. What if we had 'user-generated software' instead of 'user-generated content'? In this mockup instead of playlists we have 'playlets' - little musical programs that can be run inside the player, encouraging new ways to listen to and perceive music. As an example I show a simple Wikipedia playlet, which brings up songs together with their Wikipedia article.
🔨 A concept UI for the data science world: a command-based data tool that can perform smart transformations on documents using natural language commands instead of Excel-like formulas or menus.
Modos: a concept I started thinking about to re-imagine window and workspace management on a desktop environment. I regularly switch between different tasks (development, design, writing, research, music production, etc), and wanted a way to arrange, visualise these 'modes' in my OS, and switch between them at the click of a button. I started tinkering with a BetterTouchTool preset to imagine what this can look like. I left this on hold but might come back to it at some point.
