Autumn has arrived, and traces have been left. #Tumulus

After dark. #Tumulus
At least electro-acoustically all is ready. I still need to translate my fscape limiter to the new system, and the real-time download isn't implemented yet. Lot's of things left to do apart from the physical installation... #Tumulus
Ok, this was a good idea: power is distributed on Speakon, DI control signal goes out on a jack.

So we've got the pi recorder up and running in CDMX; woah, I'm happy there were no technical complications. Here's some sky fragment from Mexico City ;) It will be converted into 76 RGB colours soon to be reproduced in Graz.
[2/2] The other is #Mäanderungen, the vernissage is a week later, but the amount of work is .... a generative procedure still has to be implemented that recombines the text and sound fragments in a meaningful way. Lot's of programming ahead 😨
[1/2] Next three weeks are going to be crazy, I hope we don't die of stress.
Week after next we'll set up #MexicanTumulus at the Ostbahnhof Graz. Today I checked that the Internet surf stick works on the Linux machine so data from Mexico can be downloaded, and the S/PDIF converter works as well to have 12 analog outs. And finally I cut the LED strip into four parts, it also survived ✔️
So why the effort? Here's what I can do now (very crude sketch, but seems robust): I can segment the voice recordings of our #Mäanderungen project and determine if the voice goes up or down at the end of a phrase / sentence; if it goes down (at least in German), it means I can have the algorithms insert additional breaks and pauses, whereas when the voice goes up, the pauses should not be expanded much as the gesture is incomplete.

Testing the audio-photo recorder for #MexicanTumulus
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.
