Over today I have been helping on the ChucK manual sprint, a consorted effort to bring the ChucK documentation upto date.

Its always a challenge with a language still under development, to keep the documentation unto date.

And as is always the case I have picked up some more cool ChucK tricks.

You can find the manual (still under construction) here.

This summer the Huddersfield Experimental Laptop Orchestra (HELO) and the inclusive improv performed as part of the Sound and Music Leeds Expo.

Manchester based film maker Nathan Rae accompanied the groups and shot the camera work that is used within this documentary.
