Common Music + Grace – Undead algorithms alive again

I’ve been getting reacquainted with Common Music and Grace for the past few weeks, looking at old pieces I create in CM 1.4 and porting them as I go to CM 3.9. I’ll be keeping some notes here which may morph into posts on a separate blog/forum/site dedicated to CM. For now, here are the relevant online resources I’ve been able to identify: Specific to Common Music: Main Common Music page Common Music Dictionary  The CM Dist Mailing List Taube’s Notes from the MetaLevel is best acquired through Amazon AFAIK Csound Journal article on CM/Grace For oldtimers like me, the pre-2002 cmdist archives can be useful Grace builds are archived here. I had a problem with the latest Mac build available through the App Store, but found a working package here. Scheme and other relevant resources: Schemers.org - hub of the online Scheme community. CM is an extension of Scheme, which in turn is a dialect of Lisp. One python programmer’s notes on learning scheme. He’s a good writer so it’s a fun read. Main S7 page - S7 is an extension of Scheme which CM leverages. Two free books! The Scheme Programming Language and Practical Common Lisp
