Geek Choir 3.0 (Long Form)

Excerpt

Geek Choir - The Return! (Now, even longer!)

Description

For the past two Open Source Bridges, we have had Geek Choirs, in which we discuss music, the state of open source notation editors, good sources of public domain music, and, of course, sing. For the third edition of OSB Geek Choir, we will do more of the same, while also adding some new music, including the Steve Reich Clapping Music .

Since the previous Geek Choirs both ran long, I’ve submitted this as a long form presentation (as well as a short form).
