You are very welcome to arrive early to get set up. We will work from only ONE machine this time as well as having an input for your computer(s) or other devices. Be sure to be in touch ASAP if you have any special requirements.
Monday April 8th:
Obi Asiama and Daniel Nilsson-Cole
Gina Choi, Robyn Nason, and John DeCorato
Terry Moon and Erik Rego
Wednesday April 10th:
Paul Hwang and Chelsea Cheng
Doug Hendler and Obi Asiama
Ben Lai, Adam Hachey, and Jeffery Huang
Here is the concert order for Monday and Wednesday this week.
NOTE: because of problems on one of my studio laptops, We will be using the computers from B25C and B25D in our performances (I will move them over at around 2pm). Since we will be alternating back and forth between the two systems during the performance (while one person is performing, the other can be setting up), I have assigned, below, which machine you will perform from (B25C = C; B25D = D). It shouldn't make much difference practically, but if you want to visit the machine for your performance tomorrow in advance of class, either to dump your project or test, you have that option. Let me know immediately if you have a conflict with this.
If you will be using your own computer (two have let me know this), there will be a separate audio connection available for this purpose.
Performance I (Monday):
Lai, Benjamin C
DeCorato, John D
Hachey, Adam C
Huang, Jeffrey D
Asiama, Obiora C
Moon, Seok Min D
Nilsson-Cole, Daniel C
Performance II (Wednesday):
Hwang, Paul C
Rego, Erik D
Nason, Robyn C
Lee, Jae Dong D
Cheng, Chelsea C
Hendler, Douglas D
Lai, Miasarah C
Choi, Hojin D
As discussed in class, here is a brief video showing the use of MIDI dummy clips in Live to store envelopes to automate parameters in another track. Here, as in class, I am automating a "fade out" of the master volume.
Here, too, is a more advanced look at the idea including the effects rack situation I mentioned today in answer to a question and, notably, the use of dummy audio clips.
And still more...
Please see a complete listing of events for Ellen Fullman's visit to Cornell...as well as details on my ensemble, CAGE, at the following link:
Main events, all in the new Milstein Hall dome:
1. Ableton Live and dummy clips:
"Dummy clips, four different methods"
"Dummy clips tutorial"
"MIDI dummy clips over the IAC bus"
2. Subversion tools, three audio applications (Auto DJ, Scrambed Hacks, and Soundspotter)
3. Copyright and the Creative Commons
--> Lawrence Lessig's TED presentation (your required viewing!)
Have a great holiday break!!
Here are the examples from today's lecture. The one that is named as "class_example" is the simple patch we built together. I've also added some explanations for each object just as a reminder. The "faderDancer" is the second example I showed at the end of the class, the one that made the knobs and faders in Live go crazy! The Live project is also added.
Remember: if you want to send MIDI messages from Pd to Live, you have to select the IAC driver (MidiYoke if you are on Windows) as your MIDI output on Pd, and as your MIDI input in Live.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Here are the links to the hardware/software controllers we looked at.
Reactable — the commercial TUI (Tangible User Interface) device
ReacTIVision — open source version of Reactable
Iannix — Graphical score generator
Arduino — the open source hardware project
In addition to the links above, you can find hundreds of examples on the web. Just google it!
Following up on today's lecture and demostration of various software and hardware implementations for music, I wanted to provide some links. First, to PureData (PD) and JACK which we discussed today and last Tuesday, I recommend downloading "PD-extended", a version of PD that includes user-contributed additions.
See my links to PD and JACK at the top of the "Free Software" page at the right. This page also links to dozens of other free software tools that might be of interest.
Help for PD is, Like Ableton, built roght into the application (Help --> Browser...) but there are many resources for PD on the web, especially useful are the FLOSS manuals, including both documentation and examples, found here.
TouchOSC is available on the iPad or iPod/iPhone as well as for Android and can be downloaded (free) from their respective App "Makets/Stores". Details and documentation are available here including example patches for PD, Abelton Live, and other software such as Max/MSP, and MIT's Processing (Video, Sound, etc).
The TouchOSC Editor which I used to build TouchOSC interfaces on my laptop is also free and can be downloaded for Mac, Windows, and Linux here (middle of the page).
Finally, the videos I showed in class from former 1421 and 2421 student Nathan Ward are viewable on YouTube. Search "Wireless wearable accelerometers" or view the following links:
