Trombinotron is an interactive installation made by Nicolas Roos and Guillaume Evrard.
The Augmented Drum Kit consists of a traditional jazz drum kit mounted with sensors, contact microphones, speakers and bespoke software programmed in MaxMSP.
Pedrodomus (NYC) and Naetron (ATX) have teamed up under court orders to release a truly metal, glitched-out, rock-solid EP.
Here is a run through of the setup for the laser controlled music thingy! This is not how it sounds as it is just ticking over whilst I am filming and when I do play it I only have one hand free! The basic premise is this; Light dependent resistors (up to 16 of them) are stimulated by lights and lasers passing over them and the change in resistance is measured by an Arduino Mega and sent over USB to a laptop running Window 7. The data streams are processed by OSC and Max/MSP, converted and sent to a variety of sound sources.
Recent technology suggests the possibility to find a different mode of interaction with the technology.
The "Fraktal Glass Bead Game" installation is inspired on Hermann Hesse's famous book "The Glass Bead Game", where an advanced civilization had a group of gifted men dedicated to a spiritual, refined and sophisticated game, mixing music, culture and philosophy.
nwdlbots are a suite of generative music devices for Ableton Live.
Kaleidoscope Music is a six channel, real-time, algorithmic sound installation.
This max for live device offers streaming directly from Ableton Live to Icecast Servers. I often designed a Max standalone version.
"Inserting pieces of actual reality often removes the magic of virtual reality." - Aaron Ben-Ze'ev (2004, Love Online: Emotions on the Internet) FacebookLIVE is a hybrid of online and offline human interaction, a series of objects that parodies how we cultivate relationships in social media.
Umidade is a live interactive installation based on the Hades condemning of the Danaids (a Greek myth), where three performers (Ludmila Machado, Samir Andreoli and Stephane Paula) take a bath in front of four cameras, connected to two macbooks.
This is a documentation of a new composition utilizing multimedia improvisation. The microphone controls several video parameters in real-time.
IanniX is a graphical open-source sequencer, based on Iannis Xenakis works, for digital art.
The concept behind my Max/MSP patch “VJ 1.0!” was to make a computer’s keyboard behave similar to an electronic drum pad; however instead of sounding an audio file, each keystroke causes a streaming video file to cut to a specific spot in its timeline, allowing the user to manually "cut up" a video in real-time to the beat of a song.
MSP was a collaborative art-project that attempted to connect sound and light by focusing on their basic properties -- waves traveling through space.
This instrument was created as part of our latest interactive dance spectacle “Absorbe-moi” The starting idea was to create an instrument dealing with sound synthesis and reacting directly with the movement of the 2 dancers. Their movement is tracked live and analyzed by another computer, collecting the main characteristics of it (X position, Y position, Height, Width, X gravity, Y gravity, speed and luminosity). This continuous flux of data is smoothed, then transmitted as normalized data into the synth trough 8 channels, used to modulate the main parameter of the sound, like the oscillators frequency, the filters cutoff frequency, their resonance, etc..., or used to control events like the retriggering of envelopes, zeroing the oscillator phase, modifying their wave shape, controlling the rate of the sequencers, or the spatial position of the sound sources in the set (a quadriphonic system is used here).
