  • signal.interrupt

      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.

  • Ruins

The app downloads real-time flight data from four airports – Los Angeles (LAX), New York (JFK), Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) and Washington DC/Dulles (IAD) - and uses the data to generate a simple minimal musical score that is always-changing as the flight data is updated.

  • Image Synthesizer

  • Max application for Guido D’Arezzo-style algorithmic composition. Guido of Arezzo was a music theorist of the Medieval era.

  • Reanimating WWII submarine HMS Alliance

    Max is behind this ever-changing 50 channel sound installation which reanimates the last surviving WWII era submarine with sound. Based in Gosport, UK, HMS Alliance is a thing of wonder: the last surviving WWII submarine.

  • You are here… somewhere else

    Playful and poetic installation, You are Here… Somewhere Else is a monumental device urban interactive maps, a journey that begins under your feet, in your neighborhood, and takes you into the stars. Come to the game of video projected lights, symbols, details and videos where space moves in a fun and interactive human mapping.

  • Spektro DRG – Dual Rhythm Generator

    DRG or Dual Rhythm Generator is a Max for Live device capable of generating clocks and rhythms that can be used with analog synthesizers and drum machines via control voltage.

  • Tunnel Divisions

  • Videograff for dancers

    Real-time video installation for dancers with one camera, one computer, one videoprojector, a tulle and little LED thumbs. We experiment videopaint for a future dance creation called "Trans".

  • During the Culture Night Rnul presented an interactive projection on the building of KOP in Breda.

  • Wavefondler

    The Wavefondler Max/MSP patch was developed in order to provide a unique form of control potentially with a number of iPads running simultaneously; using your fingers to touch the waveform. There is broad acceptance of the benefits of MT for performance and mixing operations, but it is clear that direct interaction with an audiovisual transformation on a desktop/laptop is yet to come of age, and that at the time of writing there is no way of using MT control on a visualization of audio that resides on an Apple Mac computer.
