• This installation acted as a photo-booth that turned people into a mosaic of emojis in real-time, and allowed them to capture images to be emailed to them; while at night, it was projected onto the building.

  • Metronomica

    In this project I've used piezoelectric sensors up on the instruments, audio to midi converters, envelope followers, OSC sender for cross platform controlling Resolume Arena and DMX lighting by Ableton Live, various audio effects for the processed saxophone sound.

  • The Music and Sound Design Platform

    Music_SDP is a Digital Audio Performance Environment; a system designed around the creation and manipulation of audio in a real-time, replacing the two-dimensional sequencer of the standard Digital Audio Workstation with a non-linear, performance-focused work environment.

  • KRK SoundShadows

    This installation refers to characteristic soundscapes of Krakow. By moving hands above a map of the city, visitors can experience various soundscapes of different parts of the city. It’s built using light sensors which react on the changing of the light while hovering the map with hands.

  • Sacred Geometry and Art

    We used Max to create shapes in water and sand plates as well as shaking objects to animate them. Interview about *LLND and Sacred Geometry in their latest performance titled Cosmic Resonance.

  • Heart Beat Harmony

    Heart Beat Harmony is a 3-dimensional interactive LED sculpture for 12 simultaneous users interacting with heartbeat sensors .

  • Stellar

    An interactive installation which aims to create a sonic representation of stars and constellations through a dedicated interface. Since there’s no sound in space, I wanted to to conceptualize a link between electromagnetic and sound waves allowing visitors to learn about specific stars through sound information. Two players can use the system at the same time, by moving their right hands over the two black, circular sensors. The data analyzed for each star are: temperature (color index: red star = old and cold, blue star = hot and young), brightness (as seen from Earth), distance (from Earth) respectively transformed into: frequency (Hz), amplitude (dB), duration (ms). The project has been developed using Arduino, Leap Motion and Max7.

  • This experiment takes in webcam image and turns it into a 3D mesh (see my Selfie Sunday 001 tutorial for a full video guide on achieving this). Everything is automated via the “loudness” value from the audio input system. The Frame Buffer Glitching stores the last 40 frames of webcam, and only plays them back when the loudness reaches a threshold.

  • Signal Culture Frame Buffer

    The Signal Culture Frame Buffer is a real-time video processing app that saves a series of video frames into memory that repeat over one another within the keyed areas of either a luma key or a chroma key.

  • MelloToneGen is a generative ambient music and noise machine application for OS X. Built with Max/MSP, it runs as a native Mac application, and creates soothing, meditative soundscapes, using sounds of nature recorded in the Pacific Northwest, along with algorithmically-generated synthetic tones. You can choose from multiple soundscape themes, created from layers of original field recordings.

  • Koka’s Bow Sensor

    Koka's bow sensor is basically a musical instrument, which was designed to be used with MaxMSP.

  • „Die Hamletmaschine“ is a performance for voice and live-electronics.

  • Visualizing looming attacks

    This algorithm focuses on when to generate notes, based on analyses of syncopation and repetition within Live MIDI clips.

  • M4LGranular

    M4L GRANULAR is a better and more simple polyphonic granular synthesiser for Ableton Live.

  • The Practice Room uses Max to facilitate rehearsing or performing electroacoustic music for instrument & tape.

  • Untitled No.36

  • In Triplicate

    Inspired by the Granular Synthesis work Modell 5, In Triplicate is a performance exploration utilizing audio-visual sampling.

  • just a tiny, fun (+ annoying) illustration of an idea i recently had, realised in max.

  • New Digital Instrument

    The whole program is written as a maxpatch, using all the stuff that people can get with the Max runtime.

  • Deconstruecento

    Italian Renaissance paintings are intervened in real-time by algorithms that simulate video compression errors.

  • SpectraScore~

    A Max/MSP abstraction for live and interactive spectral music programming and performance.

  • Immensity

    INTRODUCTION Immensity is a first of its kind monophonic complex waveform generator, synthesizer, highly influenced by the legendary Buchla 259 (original) VCO module. Almost every knob/button/selector could be automated from Live.
