videos for swirler


While it's not a new work, but something in progress, I recently put  
up some videos that show the piece pretty well:

http://at.or.at/hans/swirler/

The next step is to make a release of the software so people can play  
with it on their own...

Terrorism is not an enemy.  It cannot be defeated.  It's a tactic.   
It's about as sensible to say we declare war on night attacks and  
expect we're going to win that war.  We're not going to win the war  
on terrorism.        - retired U.S. Army general, William Odom

Pduino 0.3 release


http://at.or.at/hans/pd/objects.html

You can read all about the protocol design here:

http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/Sensorbox

Here are some key changes:
- new MIDI-based protocol
- rebuilt from scratch, cleaner and smaller code
- timer-based loop to poll analogIns and serial
- the firmware will report its version, and blink the version at boot
- reduced serial speed to 57600 to work around glitches
- Makefile to build from command line

Hopefully this works better, test it out and let me know.

Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a  
more direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in  
practice, it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith

unDEAF: Call for participation

Dear friends,

Would you be so nice to forward unDEAF: Call for participation to whom it might interest.

Thanks a lot,
Rui
---------------------------
Call for participation

unDEAF:  Dutch Electronic Art unFestival

unDEAF is a satellite event of the Dutch Electronic Art Festival 2007. unDEAF is uncurated. Your work will not be judged, or restricted by a theme, neither it has to be finalized. unDEAF is self-organized. You organize and promote your own event, whether an art piece, a performance, a talk, a workshop, a meal, a song, a party or other as-yet-undefined events.

How to participate in 3 steps:

1. Announce your event at the website (http://undeaf.v2.nl/WhoIsDoingWhat).
2. Subscribe to the mailinglist and stay tuned to the latest news.
3. Show up in person or avatar from 10th to 15th of April.

For those brave-hearts that would like to help organizing unDEAF, we might have simple accommodation for free.

From Tuesday 10th to Sunday 15th of April
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Patching Circle in Brooklyn


http://idmi.poly.edu/node/119

We spend enough time alone staring at our computers; we are proposing  
to work together. So often issues that arise when working can be  
solved with a quick two minute discussion that would take hours to  
solve alone. We have Dorkbot to see people's work, we have Share  
where anyone can play, we have workshops and universities to learn  
from. But we don't have a meeting where we all can come to work.

This is an informal gathering of patching and patchers (Max/MSP/ 
Jitter, Pure Data, and even jMax, EyesWeb, vvvv, etc.).  Beginners  
and Experienced welcome. Work on projects, school work, ask for help,  
help others, or just patch quietly to yourself, in a room full of  
other people patching patches and helping other people patch.

This Thursday, the 15th from 6pm til we are done.

Rogers Hall, room 207 (building A on the directions page)

[workshop][Berlin] 17th March: Oscillation Overthruster--Pure Data (PD) Synthesis, Feedback and Noise

xxxxx workshop_7_x Berlin

17th March: Oscillation Overthruster--Pure Data (PD) Synthesis,
Feedback and Noise

with Derek Holzer (http://www.umatic.nl/info_derek.html).

Pure Data is a powerful, free and open source environment for
producing and manipulating sound, image and data in real time. This
hands-on workshop will concentrate on using oscillators, filters,
feedback and noise to create your own self-modulating/generative sound
systems. Go for that classic analog sound, do the digital
clicks-n-cuts thing, or indulge in a noise orgy freakout... Since we
will cover quite a bit of Pure Data and DSP (Digital Signal
Processing) basics, this workshop is ideal for PD beginners as well as
experienced users who want to come and make some noise
together. External inputs and controllers such as MIDI
keyboards/faderboxes, USB joysticks, sensors or microphones could be
useful, but not required.

---What to bring:

* Essential:

1) Laptop running Linux, OS X or Windows
2) Pure Data Extended installed from:
http://at.or.at/hans/pd/installers.html
3) Soundcard (internal or external, quality a non-issue)
4) Headphones
5) EUR 10 participation fee

* Recommended/Suggested:

1) MIDI controller/keyboard
2) Microphone
3) USB Joystick
4) Your own PD audio projects for feedback/show-and-tell

---About the Teacher

Derek Holzer [USA 1972] began working with Pure Data in 2001. Since
then, he has taught and performed with the program across Europe,
North America, Brazil and New Zealand. His work focuses on field
recording, networked collaboration strategies, experiments in
improvisational sound and the use of free software such as
Pure-Data. Holzer has released tracks under the Nexsound, Sirr,
and/OAR and Gruenrekorder labels, and has co-initiated several
internet projects for field recording and collaborative soundscapes
including Soundtransit.nl. He is currently writing a beginner's manual
for Pure Data.
