ChucK - Study Journal

March 2010

I have almost no musical background but I'm always interested in programming language designs and livecoding environments. So when I discovered ChucK, I decided to try my hand at writing a few programs and screencasting the process. The four five-minute videos I made show the procession from, "Wow! I can make sounds!", through to, "Cool! FM synthesis controlled by the mouse!".

I didn't get very far into learning ChucK but I'm sure the short experience did influence my thinking about interactive programming environments, which is a topic I am still interested in. Here are the videos.
