Nova Drone v1.3 – experimental analog synth

August 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Nova Drone is an open source, analog experimental sound and light synth.
It it can be used to create effects ranging from slowly fading drones to chaotic harmonic sequences. It also functions as a complex visual pattern generator when combined with a digital/phone video camera. See the video below for an example of the color patterns generated by holding a camera up to the LED.

The Nova Drones offers 12 potentiometers, 10 switches, 6 oscillators, 9 oscillator sync inputs, 6 frequency modulation inputs and an epic 15 voltage outputs as well as 3 high current outputs for controlling external LEDs. All of the ins and outs have been routed to a prototyping breadboard at the bottom of the unit which allows for liberal experimentation and development of custom circuits. The prototyping area is especially useful for syncing the oscillators of 2 or more Nova Drones together.

Experimental: Non Human Device #002 – [REVISITED]

August 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Non Human Device #002” is part of a series of interactive installations where experimental audiovisual devices/instruments are explored. They are based on the speculative narrative of the project BORIS CHIMP 504, an audiovisual live performance that tells the adventures of a chimp cosmonaut in space.
Every version of the “Non Human Device” installations are based on an alien object/device found by Boris Chimp 504 during his missions through the deep space.

Miguel Neto – Sound

Keep track of BorisChimp504’s voyages into the deepspace :

** Gestures captured with LeapMotion device (leapmotion.com/)
Leap data captured in Max with “cicm.leap” (github.com/eliottparis/Leapmotion/tree/master/cicm.leap).

Article on “The Creators Projects” with a nice resume about Boris Chimp 504’s space adventures:

In this version there are more controllable parameters from the shape and sound, and it is possible to interact with 2 hands at the same time

Nature Oscillator app transforms sounds from nature via spectral synthesis

August 14, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Alexander Zolotov has introduced a new app, Nature – Oscillator, that lets you synthesize based on the world around you.

screen520x924

The world around us is an endless source of visual information, the flow of the fractal code of life. Nature – Oscillator is one of the attempts to translate this code to sound, using spectral synthesis algorithm of the Virtual ANS engine (software simulator of the unique Russian synthesizer ANS). The program continuously reads the image from the camera and interprets it as the spectrum of the sound.

BI1brainterface – mindwave to musical equipment interface

August 10, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

soundmachines BI1brainterface Desktop Edition first video.
A simple introduction to the first commercially available mindwave to musical equipment interface. CV and MIDI outputs derived from your brain activity (EEG) and Attention and Meditation eSense ™ high level values.

The module has analog outputs (related to Meditation, Attention, 8 EEG bands and the RAW EEG signal) and 1 GATE signal (with a variable threshold). It will be programmable by the user (MIDI channel, cc, etc..) via a USB/serial cable.

More videos in the next days/week.
The product will be sold in early september, shipping end that month.

tinyTesla: the Little Singing Tesla Coil Anyone Can Build

August 7, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

tinyTesla, a new Kickstarter project to fund a little MIDI Tesla coil kit that’s designed to be easy to build.

tinyTesla is a desktop MIDI Tesla coil kit designed to be suitable for beginners or veterans in electronics. The project has blown past its $20,000 fundraising goal, with more than 10 times that amount already pledged. Backers can get a kit to build a MIDI tesla coil for about $150.

The Tesla coil’s lightning heats up air and creates pressure waves that are audible as sound. The more times per second the lightning fires, the higher the pitch created.

tinyTesla is a desktop musical Tesla coil that fits in your hand.
We’re also introducing oneTeslaTS, tinyTesla’s big brother.

Experimental: Nagual Dance – Soundscape Firedance with Kinect

July 25, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The music in this video was created through the movement of the dancers in front of a Kinect camera.This new interactive music experience is called Nagual Dance and will soon be available to public.

It works like that:
The Kinect tracks your movements and sends it in form of data to a computer. The software Nagual Dance translates this data into music. And this whole process happens in real time!
It works with one or two players.

Specific sound elements (instruments) are assigned to certain limbs of your body. What you play with it is totally up to you.
The music is created in Soundscapes (interactive music pieces), a new music format developed by Nagual Sounds. These Soundscapes exist in a variety of styles and offer you many options to create and vary musical elements.

This Soundscape is called Firedance.

The left player plays the drum elements.
He’s got Percussions on his feet, Kick + Snare on his right hand and Hi-Hat + Shaker on his right hand.

The right player plays the melodies.
She’s got chords on her right foot+percussive synths on her left foot, the bass on her right hand and a Pad + Leadon her left hand.
You can stream and download the track on our Soundcloud page:

Googlish:

It is a video that was broadcast on “in the classroom of Techne image” of NHK.
This is a video you want to test the hypothesis that sound rain that, or not than is made in the integrated sound of water droplets hit the thing.
