4×4 takes four found sounds and allows them to be manipulated by dragging around the screen to change pitch and filter elements of the sound.
Visually, circular patterns and colour textures are created based on the amplitude of the sounds, with different colours representing each sound.
4×4 was created using Processing and was originally created as coursework for the Creative Programming for Digital Media & Mobile Apps course run by the University of London. You can play with it in your browser here
four_CVI is an interactive audio-visual composition created using clips from the Fairlight CVI video unit (courtesy of VJ Zoo) and some 8-bit audio samples. The video and the audio can both be manipulated within the browser, with video highlighted dependant on cursor location and audio speed and amplitude manipulated using x/y location data.
It was created within Processing and was originally created as coursework for the Creative Programming for Digital Media & Mobile Apps course run by the University of London. You can play with it here.
Just a little remix of the Manfred Mann’s Earth Band classic. It was a quiet day so thought I’d have some fun with this.
Here’s a couple of videos showing a custom performance interface using Pure Data as an audio and video sample player, combined with a gaming joystick, an iPad and Leap Motion as input controllers. 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.
Here’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.
I spent a lot of time travelling between Bedford and Cambridge whilst completing my MSc at Anglia Ruskin University. Most of the time this was using the X5 coach. Sometimes I spent this time making music on my laptop, sometimes just looking at the landscape.
This video captures the journey from both sides of the coach, recorded on separate days using the onboard camera of an iPad. The video was then assembled using Adobe Premier with a soundtrack created using Ableton Live.
