VOICES OF UMEÅ: SINGING INSTRUMENTS! is an exhibition with a bunch of interactive instruments built from everyday objects, with the purpose of exploring experimental music composition through a playful and inspiring process.
Daily traversed by more or less interpretable signals using equipment more or less sophisticated as our cell phones or our radios, we can only get the meaning of a very small part of them, finally. These digital or analog signals carrying information are transcoded and transported by electromagnetic waves traveling in our world meshed by antenna systems, networks splitters, filters and other as invisible as necessary equipment in our lives often reduced to propagation of messages. signal.interrupt is a generative sound and visual installation that visits the various forms of modulation and signal creation itself from pseudo-random generators that displays programmed shapes and generates continuously sound and visuals, exploring the modulation frequency of amplitude, tone generation by random wave table, among other processes. signal.interrupt is based on an algorithm that generates digital bits 0 or 1, which are stored in real-time in temporary memory and read as if they were full-fledged sound signals.
Compositor Lite may be thought purely as a delay network made in its entirety in Gen.
This project is a software tool developed in Max/MSP that allows musical elements, specifically in the context of a live performance, to be controlled by human vocal input. This involves the simple real time processing and analysis of numerous aspects of a vocal input, and the use of it to control & perform a musical piece. This project does not involve the direct manipulation of vocals, but instead uses the human voice as a controller to manage functions in real time.
Metal Mirror is a meditative musical instrument that exploits the resonant properties of a large sheet of steel. The performer has precise control of amplitude and subtle tuning adjustments over a set of pitches chosen in advance.
This is a Bassnectar remix where I used a few of my favorite songs.
After a successful prototype the new Dehumaniser is now ready! Dehumaniser is a software standalone vocal processor that allows the production of creature / monster sounds, efficiently in real time.
<Crescendo is a multi-oscillator synth with a filtered white noise generator built specifically for the creation of Riser / Uplifter effects.
Baloica, created by Elas Duas, is a temporary sound installation set at the old Convento das Dominicas in the city of Guimarães.
I'm often teaching Max6 & Max for Live frameworks and I decided to challenge myself and to write a short guide about Max for Live both in french and english. I had that idea during one of my latest course with a person and I made it! This is a self-published book usin leanpub.com platform.
ICARE IN SITU is an adaptation of the myth of Icarus from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It's a multimedia sculptural transcription of this myth, by Thomas Sillard. The Icarus story as an allegory of the various struggles that we must take to survive.
A rework of a Max for Live TB303 with added phasor and an extra waveform.
Super6 is a detune plugin based on a reverse-engineering of the Roland JP-8000 SuperSaw oscillator.
New Delhi Audiograph An interactive, audiovisual installation by Paweł Janicki, the work treats some elements of the Hindi language as a structural foundation of a musical composition.
Mac ONLY! Drag any sample onto the player to use this plug-in.
FEATURES - 3 fx stages based on step sequencing * frequency modulator modulating the input with a raw and gloomy carrier * crusher crushing bit depth resolution + sample rate of the input * dirty delay delaying and modulating the feedback on very uncanny manners - independant step sequencers for audio-channels L/R - global bypass switch - global dry/wet - master shaper envelope based with retriggering rate The signal pass thru several internal modules, successively: - frequency modulator - crusher - dirty delay Each module are based on a step sequencer, except the step shaper. Each module can have its own step number.
An ambient synth with 8 pad tones plus Reverb, Attack, Release, Cutoff and Spectral Delay. A surprisingly deep variation of sounds available with a few controls. Now part of $4 Max Pack.
WHITEBOX DIALSYNTH is a superfast one-dial call-up of 24 presets ranging from rich pads to quirky leads. No dials to tweak.
Designed for the musician who is either in a hurry, bored with tweaking parameters and/or extremely lazy. It takes the decision-making out of sound selection.
Freeq is spectral filtering app for easy and fast frequency manipulations.
