🐌. Native speaker of American English. Linux user. Familiar with several programming languages in the procedural, OO, and functional paradigms.

Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

comment How does the Risset Rhythm work?
It's a self-similar fractal.

comment Is there a name for this sort of ambiguity with respect to the rhythm of a piece, and/or is this a recognized technique in composition?
Not exactly the same, but there's also the Risset rhythm, an auditory fractal that seems like an infinite accelerando. music.stackexchange.com/questions/4708/…

comment How to dramatically change the feeling of a song while keeping the melody largely the same?
76 Trombones from The Music Man does this. Also several of the middle variations from Händel's chaconne in G major (HWV435).
