Spent this afternoon looking into parsing the LAG file format quickly in Java, the idea is to formally specify LAG grammar using ANTLR. I’ve got part of the grammar finished and it’s starting to output AST graphs like the one in this post so it’s looking hopeful and will save a lot of coding work later.Continue Reading »
I’ve finally got around to uploading my latest recordings.
Please let me know if you like them!
As usual the recordings are just me on the piano + a tiny it of editing and are entirely my own arrangement without referring to sheet music.
You can download them using the links below and you can also listen to them and/or download them from my last.fm page:
- As The Deer
- It’s Your Blood
- Little Star
- Farwell Spanish Ladies
- The Lord’s My Shepherd Medley
- When I Survey
- Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
- What a Friend Medley
On another note, I’m still working on the CAF+LAG player program. For those of you who haven’t fallen asleep after the double-barrelled use of acronyms… …a CAF describes the data for a lesson and a LAG tells the computer how to display it… sort of. At the moment I’m working on turning a basic .lag file (like this one) into an XML representation (like this) for easy manipulation in the rest of the program.
I’m currently working through the examples on this page to make sure that I’m covering the syntax and grammer properly.Continue Reading »
I’ve been exceptionally busy over the past month finishing off a lot of things before I start at Warwick University including training my replacement at my job in Leicester, finishing off most of the work on the Alpha Sales and Stock Database System for the 6 clients which are currently using the software, and other odds and ends as they came up.
As a result I haven’t been able been able to work as much on the volunteer based projects I’ve involved in such as BlenderArt, the Blender Challenges (www.blenderchallenge.com), the Entertainer Media Center etc. I’m hoping that once I’ve settled into a routine at Warwick I’ll be able to fit those back into my schedule.
My first day at Warwick was yesterday and it went well. I sorted out Computer Logins, got my Eee on the network, joined the gym and the climbing club (the indoor climbing area is impressive!), worked out where the important buildings are and continued the work I’ve been doing on a CAF + LAG player.
I still have some things todo, such as getting an annual pass for the car park, which I have to do today. I’ve got some more music recorded as well which I’ll be uploading to this blog and last.fm sometime soon.Continue Reading »
