  1. Your music is nice, but more importantly the attitude you have toward it is great. I stumbled upon your site while searching algorithmic music and enjoyed browsing your site. If you ever figure out what csound really is and whether it’s suitable for my purposes, I will look into your “blue.” I might also make use of your breathing program and advertise it in my Turkish blog (you make me wanna learn Java or any other programming language). We shared a few months in NYC (I moved there for a Ph.D. shortly before you moved away). Thanks for this nice site and resources again.

    1. It is a pleasure to meet you! I hope you enjoy what you find within my programs and hope to keep in touch in the future.

  2. Steven:

    Thank you so much for the gift of blue.

    What I have heard of your music is very impressive. As a musician, I am inspired to explore some of your ideas I percieve in the pieces.

    I find your personal philosophy as expressed here to be refreshing. I am proud to have landed here and say hello and thanks!


  3. Thank you very much for Blue and for being you, Steven. I really appreciated your Blue workshop at the Csound Conference in Hannover.

  4. Thank you for your work and dedication!

    I have to say the phenomena piece is very nice (haven’t yet listened to all pieces), i love to use those juicy chords myself and it kind of reminds me of a piece, of one of my own pieces (actually, i think they might even share some chords and timbral aspects).. A point floating in the universe while asteroids are passing by – that’s what i see when i listen to it (phenomena).
