sonic particles 2.0 is a real-time sonification of urban environmental data.

Video Voto Matic

Users punch their rhythm into a “voting booklet” that mimics the infamous punchcard-style Votomatic voting machines used during the 2000 Florida election debacle.

Geografia Sonora

"Geografia Sonora", a sound-video installation on the theme of the sea. An archipelago of “sound islands” (singing/speaking voices, sound signals, natural and mechanical sounds) and the a continuously changing sparkling sea are automatically generated ad infinitum by Max/MSP, the Spatialisateur, Jitter and Antescofo software.


A simple patch for galvanising inspiration.

Key Link API

Wish Key Signatures could be synchronized between applications? They can! Heres a logically ordered list of all possible note combinations within 12TET with assigned OSC values. Theres room to include scales beyond 12TET, but at the moment it is centered around that particular temperament. In thinking of other temperaments, we are considering floating point values between the current integers, or extending the list to be much longer.

“The BSP Initiative” aka Program Change My Life!

Having a couple lists of general midi compatible chromatic presets (each 128 long [one in Kontakt, one in FM8]) has been incredibly useful for me when I want to jump straight into composition and not think too hard about choosing an instrument. I've also been able to use it successfully with old auto accompaniment keyboards and other multitrack sequencers, and get a selection of patches that are a pretty good fit to what the intended sound should be. I've not yet posted my max patches to handle the program changes because they are sub-optimal, but if you'd like to join the discussion and collaborate on development of devices, the folder structures, and preset lists, please join the google group!forum/the-bsp-initiative
