Some things I have been meaning to investigate in my own time, but haven’t, because life just gets in the way.
- Music Theory
– It might surprise a few people that, as a software developer, I never took maths to A-level. I picked up a bit of maths in my CS degree, but I never really got a firm grounding in it. This has prevented me from understanding and coding advanced stuff in game development, understanding audio to a decent level, and generally doing things in which I consider the more interesting fields of computing.
– I have been getting better at playing the piano/keyboard by ear, but I have never fully learned to read music, and I would like to.
– I would love to be able to build simple DIY synthesiser module kits for my Eurorack setup. I imagine I’d have to start on something small though.
It would be great if I could take courses in these subjects, via the OU or something similar. I just have to find the time.
