This is a quick test of an audio reactive drawing app built in Adobe AIR running on the iPad. I wanted to see what sort of performance I could get with multiple animating sprites on stage reacting to audio with the stage quality set to “low”. I was pleasantly surprised. Frame rate was about 25fps most of the time, which is what I had the publish settings at.
This is in its early stages. I hope to use it for an upcoming visual performance and expand on it for release in the AppStore at some point.

I put this blog up about 6 months ago to jump on the “I’m a blogger” bandwagon. Based on a few tweets and articles I tripped over, writing articles for well-known blogs or your own was a recommendation to drive traffic to your site. While I’ve no doubt that’s true, I felt like a square peg jamming myself trough a round hole. I did it anyway and wrote a couple “buzz” pieces, the early posts on this blog. I’ve decided to leave them there. Seems like silly history that you should know about me.
2011 was shall we say, lame. A little better than 2010 but not by much. I started a small design studio with my partner Morgan, C+G, in January of 2010. Probably one of the worst times to do so following the housing crisis. My wife and I bought a house during that crisis and got a great deal. Problem is I had to pay the mortgage and work was drying up. The release of the all mighty iPad and Steve Jobs open letter to the world on how much Flash sucked had a lot to do with it.
