A gift for all max-users

I finished my electronic music project at school (well actually 2 months ago but I wanted to make a windows version as well which unfortunately I didn’t succeed). It is a program that takes the stock exchange data and translates that data in music in real-time. Anyway, my teachers were really happy with this project, Magnus Lindberg also saw this program and was interested as well. I want to share it with you. Here is the downlaodlink (the file is biog because i added some example audio files). You can always send me suggestions. I hope you will like it

that’s cool! I am working on a program right now (with a friend) that
works the other way round. I use max (actually a very similar
program…) to influence the stock exchange in realtime (hehe)…

I told you that creditcrunch~ was a bad idea, but you just wouldn’t
listen.

I thought if I set the variable @onlypunishgreedy 1, it would not hurt
the rest. my mistake…

I’d love to listen to the stock crashes but the file doesn’t open
here… (oldfashioned Powerbook)

Interesting approach. Thanks for sharing. Any chance we could have a
look at the underlying patches and/or abstractions, etc.?

Thanks,

Steven

sorry to chime in late.
it reminded me of tom hamiltons “london fix” cd, where he used data
from the london stockexchange (gold-price) to drive an installation.
(iirc it was also max-driven)

but nevertheless nice work, thanks for sharing.

All i hear are a lotta really low notes, and it feels the it’s about to crash. I tried adding an integer as a float $300, but it still feels like all the low level processing is about to crash, while the 2 processes hogging up all my CPU cycles are really just virii…

Joking aside, cool work, and seems rater timely. I’d love to see it installed somewhere near wall street with a big PA system.
