Hi everyone,

On Wednesday, I presented Flocking, a web framework built with Infusion for audio synthesis and sonification. We will likely be using it as part of our sonification authoring tool development.

Here are a few links to more information about it:

Paper from the 2014 International Computer Music Conference:

Minimal (but growing) documentation:

During the presentation, I also mentioned some limitations in Flocking that we will have to address or work around in the short term. This includes its limited support for native Web Audio nodes and its lack of support for MIDI-style playback using a technology such as SoundFonts. Hopefully these issues will be addressed in Flocking soon, and if it turns out to be possible for us to contribute as part of this effort, I'm happy to provide guidance.
