About this account
I'm a sound and digital artist, interested in installation and intermedia, improvisation and electronic/electroacoustic music. I develop a bunch of open source software.
I keep only one account, so the toots are a mix of sound/art focused things, random thoughts, and few rants (CW'd, and you don't need to share my opinion). I'm friendly/respectful 🍍 + aim to keep an open mind.
Account is locked (allow time to review), because I don't want bots and nazis to follow me. Thx 🌈
status: setting up #infiltration at esc media art lab, Graz
Working on the sound composition of #infiltration in my studio. Six days till opening 😮
Those acrylic discs still smell of laser cutting, hmmmm
Tomorrow Wed July 22 at 19:30 we open the first piece in the parcours #AlgorithmicSegments.
It is a sound/text/video installation by Jonathan Reus titled "Wordless: A Conversation with Samuel Beckett and Morton Feldman at the End of History", presented at the fassade of Forum Stadtpark #Graz.
Jonathan was guest at the ALMAT project in 2018, and the piece is sort of a further development of ideas hatched there.
After automatic parametrisation of synthetically generated sound programs, I have to figure out how to create agents that do what I'd normally do when I improvise with them.
Note that the video shows a different source code (my bad), see the comment for the actual source code.
infrared sensor "switch matrix" from our installation #ViceVersa at Wasserspeicher Berlin Prenzlauer Berg anno 2007. The idea was that all the cables will be hidden inside this box, LOL. This is how messy it was behind the scenes ;)
Devising an algorithm to drop from a huge pool of automatically generated sounds those that have a pretty much static and non-modulated spectrum.
Arrived at one that takes relatively large time windows, calculates some dozen mel filter coefficients, for each calculates the ratio of 85 to 15 percentile across time, and thresholds at the mean and max of those ratio sets. Works pretty well so far.
Just after eight, we encountered these strange patches on a house wall. After closer inspection, it turns out these are all spider webs, moist after the rain and thus reflecting in the sunset (it took me five minutes to get the camera, so the illumination was already less impressive than we saw it first; I'll try again tomorrow to shoot this).
