During a 2am perusal of Alex’s code we decided that watching gcc compiling stuff was rather soothing, as is listening to music. The potential for combining these two is clear, so I suggested an XMMS visualisation based on gcc. Today I hacked together a quick prototype.

It’s still in need of rather a lot of fine tuning and needs extra compile phrases added to it, but it shows off the general concept nicely ;).
