Code Fugue

Code Fugue: a state where I forget everything except the sounds going in my ears and the code coming out of my fingers. It’s a state I try to hit every day, but have been distracted lately.

Where has my copy of Brian Eno’s Music for Airports gone where I could use it?

I’ve been jamming to ambient/techno/assorted mellow stuff in a haze of coding all night. Since I can’t find Music for Airports I’ve plugged in Thick as a Brick instead. Thick as a Brick is, IMHO, not to shabby for this sort of thing, Considering most of it is really well orchestrated – one of the things I’ve always liked about Jethro Tull.

I need more ambient.
I need more classic (i.e. pre-industrial) techno (read: Only for the Headstrong era stuff)
I need more Moby (Play is great for this soft of mood, and it’s a wicked cool CD anyway, but I could also go for Next is the E as well as stuff from his first CD)
I need some sleep.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Try Delerium…Karma for the more etherial stuff, Morpheus for a more synth-pop sound. It will put you in a state for sure!
