I dug out some magic from my music collection #theStudio
Sword & Sworcery: Moon Grotto by scntfc
James Heather – Ruqia (from Stories From Far Away On Piano)
The whole album is so beautiful, calming, and somehow optimistic and hopeful, for those moments when you feel a bit down and need a boost #theStudio
I love Blade Runner game so much, but I had no idea how insane the tech was (this is 1997)
For the curious: I looked at Mike Acton's concurrency slides (https://cellperformance.beyond3d.com/articles/) and implemented several versions of Increment Problem and River Crossing Problem. Some good resources: Game Engine Architecture book, Abrash's Black Book (for free at http://www.jagregory.com/abrash-black-book/), Intel Intrinsics Guide (https://software.intel.com/sites/landingpage/IntrinsicsGuide/), of course https://godbolt.org/ for disassemblies #theFurnace
I spent the last few days practicing concurrency and optimization in C++, reading disassemblies and digging a bit into SIMD. After years of Java, going low level feels like the right direction. #theFurnace

“What is just one room (my studio) becomes many rooms when working on music.”
“Each track used the same core sounds, but evolves and mutates them in subtle ways, as well as being the direct inspiration for the track that came after.”
