Just a little experiment using Processing, and an experiment in uploading Processing sketches to a webpage using processing.js

Pure Data & custom control using Leap Motion, Joystick & Touch OSC.

Here’s a couple of videos showing a custom performance interface using Pure Data. Here’s what’s going on…

Pure Data – a patch constructed of a drum sample player, a video mixer and a sequencer.
Joystick – controlling visual effects and sequencer control through junXion.
iPad – sequencer control using a TouchOSC interface.
Leap Motion – Control of reverb and delay parameters using GecoMIDI.

A Tramride in Soller, Majorca

SollerHere’s a single shot film experiment made in Soller, Majorca. The film captures the tram journey from the Port de Sóller travelling around the bay and into the town of Sóller.

The playback speed of the recorded footage was increased 400%, with the recorded sound transformed into an ambient soundscape using reverb and delay, building to a crescendo.

Dungeness – A Short Film

Dungeness is an extreme landscape on the south coast of England. Part nature reserve, part fishing community, and home to a steam railway and a nuclear power station. I’ve wanted to visit for years, and to use footage of the area in a film.

The film aims to explore the juxtaposition of environments at Dungeness, showing different usages of land, and the effect of man in a natural environment.

So fast forward to a blustery, snowy and freezing cold April and I find myself there with my camera. What you see here is the result. I hope I have captured the mood of this barren, isolated, and intriguing landscape…

X5 – Cambridge to Bedford Stop Motion Video

I’ve recently been spending a lot of time travelling between Bedford and Cambridge on the X5. At the same time, I’ve been playing with an iPad app called iStopMotion (from Boinx). Put them both together and this is what you get…

In making this I filmed the journey from Cambridge to Bedford from both sides of the coach (not on the same day). The resulting footage was then re-assembled in Adobe Premiere, sided by side, and one time-stretched to even up the lengths . The film was completed with the addition of a music track I created for the movie, improvised within Ableton Live.

And so here’s the audio track:
