This might work as a nice aural space for programming: peaceful brook (fountain?) and windchimes (music?).

http://hexara.com/peaceful.jar

There is NO visual interface yet, no GUI. To stop it, you have to kill the process.

It wouldn't be too hard to make an interface to allow settings for volumes, chime activity level and even picking the notes for the chimes.


[EDIT: now has simple GUI]

The non-looping brook uses a granular process, stringing together 1/4 second fragments from a 4.5 second source recording of a nearby stream in El Cerrito, recorded two nights ago at midnight. The bells are FM synthesis done on the fly, the randomization provided by moving through Perlin/Simplex space.

Almost all the cpu overhead comes from the FM synthesis (allowing up to 20 chimes to be sounding at the same time). The brook running on its own registers 0% cpu on my Windows Task Manager.

I absolutely love it ... though I'd want to be able to tweak the chimes (quieter, less frequent) ... any chance you could include the source?

Awesome, although customization would be cool, like sproingie said.

I have an unusual playlist. I listen to a loop of the non lyrical part of final countdown, rocky, fun, and the campfire song song.

50's rock, metal, classic rock, some techno, euro dance, and hands up. The funny thing is one genre will play right after the other, and anyone around me looks at me like I'm crazy.

Prepare; this is the product of no knowledge of songs, rushed searching of songs, and no clear taste in music. Enjoy.

I must say that the Hotline Miami soundtrack is a nice companion to a crunch hour. That music can even make accounting an adrenaline rush.

I've listened to metal and rock all my life, and my favorite band to listen to during crunch time is Ufomammut. They're a really awesome "stoner" metal band that calms me down. I've found that when I get excited while programming, I frequently forget what I'm doing Tongue stupid brain.

Daft Punk is amazing for programming, though usually my friend has a stream he puts up every night, so I just get music off of that.

I like piano remixes of popular songs. It just either is funny, or is funny and awesome.

Just because Skrillex got main stream, I.e, the reason everyone now knows what dubstep is, doesn't mean his music is shit. I don't know what he does nowadays but a few years back, his tunes revolutionized dubstep. If you want to know what real dubstep used to sound like, listen to some few years old Excision at Shambhala.

Considering Skrillex, it really is hip to be square. He simply just skyrocketed to fame a few years ago (because of his music) and now the new thing cool kids do (hipsters) is hating on the mainstream just because they want to appear to be unique.

my 2 cents

While listening, can think a bit about the challenges today's musicians face:
https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=517123538373019

I learned an interesting thing about Pandora recently. Their rate of reimbursement averages $0.08 per thousand plays approximately (I think the amount varies by the length of the cut but am not sure).

So, if an artist gets onto one of their streams, and has three pieces playing in a day, every day, that comes to less than $90 for a year. (AFAIK, the amount of reimbursement does not reflect the number of recipients/subscribers of the stream. Please correct me if I am wrong!)

Pandora is lobbying hard to LOWER this rate. They've bought some tiny radio station in South Dakota or somewhere and are now claiming that they should be allowed to stream at FM/AM radio rates.

Games are having some similar issues, I guess. Google, et al., working hard to keep the cost of "content" to a minimum, in order to maximize the profitability of their ad revenues and customer info collection and sales. Makes perfect business sense, given the existing rules of engagement.

On the other hand, I've bought no less than five albums straight off Pandora.  Would probably be more if it were a smoother experience and not just a link into the craptastic interface of the iTunes store.

I hate on mainstream because most of the songs annoy me. now what was mainstream in the 80's like ACDC and Def Leppard is fine because they actually made good music.

Absolutely. The mainstream music today is, well, absolute crap. If it was actually good, I'd be fine with liking what everyone else likes! But since no one seems to like rock or metal anymore, apparently that classifies me as a hipster. Hell to the no, I hate the general idea of the modern day hipster, sitting at Starbucks writing their romance novel and sipping on some expensive ass coffee. Just please no. I like the music I like because I like it, not because someone else likes it. I'm not a hipster because of it, and I hate when people say that.
