Modular Synthesis for Neophytes

July 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Make Noise interns Safarii, Asher and Adam came into the Make Noise shop 10 weeks ago with no knowledge of modular synthesis. They learned quite a bit from Walker and Tony and now they are presenting this video to teach the complete neophyte some of the basic principles of modular synthesis.

Grassi Box – Analysis

July 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Grassi Box is a MIDI-to-relay piece of hardware (built by Dan Wilson of Circitfied) based on an Arduino teensy and some accompanying software tools built in Max. The idea is to be able to control a variety of my ciat-lonbarde instruments from a computer.

In this video the audio from the guitar is being analyzed (in real-time) to find the nearest preset/combination/permutation from a set of 6884 pre-analyzed presets.

Meet the Makers: Ayah Bdeir of littleBits

July 22, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

With littleBits, Ayah Bdeir is turning electronics into a resource—like cardboard, plywood, or fabric—that any designer can use. Her color-coded bricks snap together with magnets. Each performs a specific function, allowing users to quickly construct circuits that include sensors, switches, and motors. As simple to assemble as Legos, the kits lend some of the technical muscle of MIT Media Lab alumni such as Bdeir to artists, makers, and kids. The CEO has shipped her kits around the world—and to New York City’s Museum of Modern Art, where littleBits are showcased in the permanent collection.
