MacFarlane Manuscript

TL;DR Collection is available here. Notes The Young MS, commonly referred to as the ‘MacFarlane Manuscript’ (for whom it was written), dates from c. 1740. Little is known of MacFarlane himself, but the manuscript is thought to have been made widely accessible across Edinburgh by its patron (Johnson 1997, 11) and its material widely disseminated throughout Fiddle repertory of the later 18thcentury.

Square brackets with Sibelius

I use Sibelius 6. It’s fine for inputting vast quantities of music, but as soon as you find yourself doing anything out of the ordinary, it kicks up a fuss.

OSC-based audience participation

This was an installation project I did. A telephone number was projected on the wall and audience members would dial it. The Asterisk PBX I was running and gave an Interactive Voice Prompt to the person on the phone.
