#Call for Applications: We're excited to organise another #Algorithms that Matter (#ALMAT) workshop in the special program of #impuls Academy 2019. Next February, we will work together with sound artist and composer Robin Minard and the selected participants on a site-specific and environment-aware sound installation for the #MuWa (Museum of Perception) in #Graz.
😓 running apt upgrade on the pi after running into ip-v6 issues with my home wifi router; i hope nothing breaks...
From Mexico back to Graz, these will house the speakers. Changing now from hospital-puke-green test colour to actual sky blue.
My Pi based sky colour and sound resonance recorder is advancing; photo calibration all good, including white balance and ROI rubberband selection. I'm having it test run now some iterations; custom settings are 12 seconds of audio plus one photo, then a minute of break. This gives me perhaps 200-300 MB per hour of uploads that I need to drain at the other end.
Just finished reading Murakami's "Killing Commendatore" (in German) - what a wonderful book 🖤 I think I didn't read a novel in several years, these two volumes went down really quick.
Raspi case with embedded camera slot, and 3.5" touch panel arrived. Everything works, calibrated, really nice, even at 480 x 320 resolution; so far, ScalaCollider is happy with the microphone signal from USB Behringer interface, cheap 5 MP camera works as well.
All this goes to Mexico city next week for #Tumulus project, where colour of sky and sound resonances will be transmitted back to Graz (for two weeks in September). In Graz, I use RGB LEDs and small speaker array in public space.
I put up some photos from the exhibition of #Thresholds of the Algorithmic (June 2018 Lydgalleriet Bergen): https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/452048/497140
Quick tutorial introducing the new widget abstraction in #Mellite v2.25.1
(low audio quality, sorry)
(2.25.1 fixes a bug with slider.max in 2.25.0)
The 'part 1' intro tutorial for #Mellite is now available on #Peertube: https://peertube.social/videos/watch/d5c98baf-fa70-4211-a31d-95c9181a3dfb - looks great, the web interface is also good. Uploading the remaining tutorials now, and will add a sixth for the new widgets abstraction this week.
The computer music environment has received two new interrelated systems in this release: DSL for expressions, similar to existing `Expr` but you write an immutable graph like do for patterns or procs. On top, a new abstraction `Widget` which allows you to build tiny user interfaces within a workspace. This will become especially useful in relation to FScape.
Tutorial to be added soon! In the meantime, download and try the 'ImageSynth' workspace.
Widget DSL making progress. Need to add some action instances now to run SoundProcesses objects, and a better panel layout, then almost done for a MWE…
