Hi Kris,

My day (and sometimes night) job is a software developer audio related
position for Canonical (Ubuntu) on the desktop experience team.

And most nights and w/ends I play with various improv musicians around
London. We (Sonnamble) just released an album at the start of this year. All
recorded with open source software ( puredata (with some hand-baked
externals), custom controller apps, Ardour, Jamin )

review of the album:

Alas if I had more time/money I would give more to the open source audio
world. Definitely up for the LAC this year in Ireland though.

All the best,
Conor
