From the ALSA wiki
Hello, I am Thorgal (aka James Warden). You can see me active in a few linux music forums or mailing lists. I am just a simple user but committed to produce entire music albums with the GNU-Linux operating systems.
I program a little bit at times and helped Hermann Meyer on the Guitarix project.
You can always drop me a message at warjamy [at] yahoo [dot] com
You can also check a recent trick I used to have a permanent ALSA to Jack bridge for non jackified applications but which can use ALSA as an audio backend (like smasher, lmms, flash plugin, skype, etc).
