New application in the works: Soundlocale

November 29th, 2013

I've been working on a new project: Soundlocale.

Soundlocale is a web application for playing a mix of geotagged sounds based on the listener's present coordinates. As the listener travels through a space, the sounds adjust in volume based on their proximity.

This project was proposed at the September, 2013 Hacking Arts conference in Cambridge, MA by Tom Xi, and has been developed thus far by Mark Breedlove.

Cutupsampler 1.1

November 29th, 2013

I have released version 1.1 of Cutupsampler.

This version adds integration with the Echo Nest API, giving us the ability to cut up our samples on beat, bar, and "segment" lines. To use these features, you will need an API key, which you can get from their developer site.

I've also added support for some non-English computer keyboard layouts.

Tweeter: Sound From Twitter

November 29th, 2013

I recently attended the Hacking Arts conference and hackathon at the MIT Media Lab, and met some new friends who come in, as I do, from a more experimental angle upon the field of music and technology.

I worked with Rev. Johnny Healy (twitter / soundcloud) on Tweeter, our little program to turn Twitter feeds into music.

To be continued!

Cutupsampler 1.0 beta 2

December 10th, 2010

I have released the second beta version of Cutupsampler, 1.0 beta 2. It's available on my download page.

This version fixes a couple of minor problems: clicking noises at note-offs have been removed, and a bug where the tremolo and vibrato depth were affecting the signal when the rates were zero has been fixed.

Cutupsampler, a new software instrument for the Mac

November 30th, 2010

I've released the first beta version of my new audio-sampler application for Mac OS X, Cutupsampler.

Cutupsampler performs a cut-up of a sound file and maps the various cuts to keys on a MIDI keyboard or computer keyboard.

Check it out and let me know what you think!

Geese!

I have a number of sound recordings posted on Freesound but this most recent one is one of my favorites so far.

In search of Max/MSP projects

September 13th, 2010

I've really been getting into Max/MSP lately, and I'm loving it. It seems that there are a lot of opportunities here. If anyone out there reading this is interested in a collaborator, let me know. I have good JavaScript abilities (JS being used within Max for creating customized objects) and experience with MIDI and assembling electronics projects. I'm interested in making a variety of things like instrument patchers with human-interface controllers (think Joysticks, Theremin-like things, etc)... and who knows, eventually I'd like to try an Arduino kit and make some sound devices and robotic cat toys. If any of this interests you, feel free to contact me!
