Scheme bricks, menus and mice

The first performance attempt of a livecoding system is always stressful, but scheme bricks at make art was especially so for me – using the trackpoint on my thinkpad hurt my finger, there was too much typing and it generally felt really really hard (I ended up switching to betablocker). In order to help combat this I’ve taken the following measures:

  • Added a menu with common commands and atoms you can drag and drop
  • Using a mouse – and employing the wheel for scrolling the menu
  • Rehersing!
  • The last point is key really, and I’m having quite a bit of fun with it now, so all going well, I’ll be giving it another go next week.
