Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 08

Research Although I wasn’t able to get all the dancers in one spot this week, I did have a chance to map some of the movements from one, with my updated mapping code. Sadly, the room wasn’t large enough to capture every movement with the […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 07

Research During the break, I met with the performers, who will be helping me greatly with my project. I had really been sweating on meeting up with them, because it marks the beginning of work really getting under way. The following is a short video […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 06

Classwork Disparate ideas came together quickly in class this week. With the amazing assistance of a guest tutor (who’s name escapes me now – note to self: find out name and compliment guest tutor), it wasn’t long before we made quick work of the structure […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 04

Classwork I was given some excellent assistance by my tutor this week, in the form of a Processing sketch that receives OSC data. Using the oscP5 library, this allows me to take information from the Wii remote to OSCulator via Bluetooth, which is then passed […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 02

Classwork Getting my hands on a Wii remote (Wiimote) in the studio was a surprisingly inspiring experience. What was essentially a class of playing Wii games, gave me a taste of what this controller is capable of outputting. It is clearly more sensitive than I […]

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 01

Advanced Multimedia Authoring – Week 01

Classwork I decided sometime last year that interactive/installation work was something that I really want to pursue. For me, the term ‘interactivity’ has little to do with the internet and fares little better when it comes to gaming (so far). I hope to take my […]

Honours Studio 1 – Week 02

Honours Studio 1 – Week 02

I’m now traversing the prickly world of research ethics. I won’t make this a post complaining about bureaucracy though. Working with an at-risk group such as autistic children, it’s important to take their involvement with the project very seriously. To apply for research approval from […]

Digital Studio – Week 07

Digital Studio – Week 07

I had a moment (or twelve) of hesitation about the direction of my project this week. After speaking to one of the lecturers at uni, I received my first piece of constructive criticism around my approach to this project. I’d like to think that I […]

Digital Studio – Week 06

Digital Studio – Week 06

I think my girlfriend secretly hates me. She’s currently head-down in books, doing her final/postgrad/super-diploma/masters/accreditation/thing to be a psychologist. Meanwhile, I’m playing with toys. Literally. And this is what I get to pass off as my final year of study. I’m so glad I didn’t […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 08

Sound Media 2 – Week 08

Process This was around the time that the performance project began to become intensely reliant on technology. Of course, this was always going to be a process of seeing where I could take the instruments I was already familiar with, but these computer-based elements were […]

Screen Culture – Week 06

Screen Culture – Week 06

Research Bit of a strategic sickie this week for Screen Culture. So unfortunately I missed watching excerpts of the brilliant Dr. Strangelove, as part of the topic of ‘Military History of the Computer Screen’. So instead of doing any of these readings, I took a […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 02

Sound Media 2 – Week 02

Classwork I’ve never actually seen a Pro Tools HD rig in the flesh until this week. I’ve heard the stories – the wonder and awe with which people gaze at this amazing piece of machinery. It’s something that we commoners can only dream of: being […]

Sound Media 2 – Week 01

Classwork Although I’ve had Pro Tools 8 installed on my computer since K.Rudd sent me the stimulus cheque in March, I haven’t really used it much. In fact, aside from poking around at the new plugins, it’s been doing little more than taking up space […]

Arduino, Here I Come

Arduino, Here I Come

It’s finally happened: I’ve taken the first steps into the world of microcontrollers, by buying an Arduino Starter Kit. It’s fair to say I’m stupidly excited. As much fun as it is wielding around Wii remotes and playing with PS3 cameras, you get a sense […]

Back To School

Back To School

There’s still a month or so before I’m back to uni for the final year of my undergrad. But being the last year, I’m pretty determined to put my head down and hit the ground running to make sure I’ve got the option of enrolling […]

dataOrigin (2009)

There is quite a large gap between this post and the last in terms of work done. Whilst the technology I was developing the project with didn’t change too much, I spent a great deal of my time refining its response to the interaction of […]

Max for Live, or How To Make Music Nerds Lose Their Minds

To say there is a lot of buzz around the launch of Max for Live is something of an understatement. It’s done nothing short of send Live-loving music geeks into a frenzy around the potential for new ways of processing audio and connecting technologies. This […]
