1. Learning new trompette patterns with Gregory Jolivet, and decided to try to evolve a micro syntax for representing them in notes, so I can add some SVG or Audio-API magic afterwards.

    1 4 1 3 1 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1 3

    And a variation: 12 4 1 3 12 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1

  2. The second back is on after rather a stressful gluing session inside a small, dark shed with candles for light. Now I know a little more about what it must have been like to be a luthier in the Middle Ages.

  3. Today I’ve gone from having almost no wood to having almost all of my gurdy wood! Some exciting photos:

    Unpacked, grouped:

    Plywood for the wheels being cut:

    And best of all, a gurdy egg made from all the tape used to package the materials!
