Avoiding __psynch_mutexwait in glBegin

The following code in a Mac openFrameworks project was hanging occasionally when I controlled the point size via a slider box (graphic card = AMD FirePro D500):

glPointSize(scaledPointSize);
glBegin(GL_POINTS);

resulting in a hang in __psynch_mutexwait inside glBegin.
The hang doesn't arise as long as I don't let scaledPointSize exceed 30. So that is a fix — of sorts.

Clonal Colonies at New World Symphony, Miami

The New World Symphony, in conjunction with Internet2 and the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association (TERENA), presents the upcoming Network Performing Arts Production Workshop April 26–27, 2014.

The annual three-day conference allows academics, artists, technology professionals and arts administrators to learn about and use cutting-edge distance-education technology; discuss artistic endeavors that utilize advanced networking applications; and explore new ways of incorporating visual technology in performances. And this year attendees are invited to experience this free Musicians' Forum featuring new music leveraging technology.

The first movement of Clonal Colonies will be performed as part of this workshop.
