I'm adding a Histogram UGen to FScape; such a simple mechanism, just throw stuff into buckets and count… I will need this to look at the distribution of spectral features of a microphone signal.

Sometimes I wish I had more input on what building blocks other people would need, but I guess that's ok.

The plot shows a 17-bin histogram fed with a sine oscillator, and the histogram being flushed every ten steps.

Lastest Raspbian Buster comes with JDK 11, QJackCtl, SuperCollider 3.10.0 preinstalled; Mellite universal download was running out of the box 🎉

Seems much more powerful than the Pi 3, my bet is the 4 GB RAM are a significant point here with running the JDK app. So far all smooth ✔️

another, one of my favourites; I shot that landscape for the video piece 'Moor' (2016)

Ok, I think I just accidentally created that Underworld "Rez" patch... [1/2]

(but Masto, why you cannot mix an image and a sound? see follow up toot)

Back to working with the genetic synth-def programming in ; I will try to integrate that soon into mainline Mellite. Now trying to automatically reduce the redundant graphs (replace constants, replace duplicate UGen signals). Here is a nice one:

(should I use mp3 directly now in mastodon or stick to funkwhale?)

Something weird happened to the high pass filter; I guess it didn't stay in sync with the frequency shifter?

Been hacking on a fully modulatable convolution UGen for (2). Seems to be working finally, allowing some funky things like quasi-continuous brickwall frequency filtering using dynamic windowed-sinc kernels 🤓 .

Next I want to try this as anti-aliasing filters for synchronous frequency shifting.

Making a postcard series for combo xCoAx 2020 / Almat 2020 conference and symposium (they will be available week after next at xCoAx 2019). I split the Almat motif set into two, using different parametrisation of the Neural Gas algorithm to trace my handwriting. I like both qualities, one is perhaps the gothic variant (gloomy like a Murnau), the other is more constructivist.

Status: rendering a series of images for an upcoming postcard. The sequence is - tablet/hand writing -> growing neural gas -> DSP compositing.

We're very happy with our three day workshop result - protoype Study (Nayarí Castillo, Emma Luke, Hanns Holger Rutz) :heart_cybre:

Our Study in the AAL @ is making progress. One of two headsets mostly finished. One more entire day of work. Eventually we want to "cross the wires" of two people.

Finally picking up work on a fixed media piece again. The downside with using tools you've written yourself is that maintaining and fixing them easily overshadows the work _with_ them.

So I found a lens that works to focus an LCD at around 9 cm distance. Any technique to determine / measure the focal length of that thing (because I'd like to obtain a second one with similar parameters)?
