I thought it might be fun to make a fancy alarm sound, so I made this tooth-brushing alarm.

I've added a new side project to my website that I've been working on occasionally since the end of last year. It's a tool for generating great Spotify playlists.
Spotify's generated and curated playlists didn't really work for me and my wife while we're working, so as a side project I made a tool that generates a fresh playlist at the push of a button. It allows you to create a mix of "moods" of music you want to listen to consisting of "clusters" of similar moods, while preventing tracks and artists from occurring too often.
An experiment in programming a generative music system (basically: teaching my computer how to compose ambient music), inspired by some of Brian Eno's work. Especially the album Reflection and the apps he made in collaboration with Peter Chilvers.
At the Music Hack Day in Reykjavik in 2012, I made a tool that visualises the sound from an album by your favourite artist and allows you to put it on your wall. It works by fetching tracks from Last.fm, audio analysis data from The Echonest, and then drawing that data on a canvas. The colour of the artwork is automatically generated from the cover art.
