Explorations in Audio by Jim Andrews

vispo.jpgJim Andrews has started a group blog on electronic literature, netartery. Among its recent posts is one by Jim himself that you shouldn’t miss if you have any interest in sound production: Explorations in Audio, published on May 28, 2010.

After 11 years of using the Director multimedia tool to create pieces such as dbCinema, Jig Sound, Arteroids, Nio, A Pen, On Lionel Kearns, War Pigs, F8MW9, The Idea of Order at Key West Re-Ordered, and Oppen Do Down, I’m attempting a major bit of re-tooling to Flash.

I’m interested in the audio capabilities of Flash. And I’m interested in the visual processing possibs of Flash. But in this post, I’ll show you why I’m interested in the audio capabilities of Flash. There’s some interesting work going on in Flash audio. Continue reading

NMR Commission: “I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On” by Haeyoung Kim (a.k.a Bubblyfish)

logo_300.jpgI Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On by Haeyoung Kim (a.k.a Bubblyfish) [Needs Flash Player and Speakers On] – I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On is an interactive art piece inspired by Samuel Beckett’s short novel, “Molloy.” The work is presented in two parts: a blog for you to contribute your thoughts about Beckett’s writing; and the multimedia generated by your entries.

“In 2007 I began to learn to ride a bicycle. This for me was a choice not so much determined by reasons of pleasure but as a way of manifesting my need to literally move on with my life. Around the same time, I began to read Beckett’s famous Three Novels, and was moved in particular by “Molloy.” Bicycles are a very important metaphor in this book.” Haeyoung Kim Continue reading

Live Stage: imposition [us Providence, MA]

imposition.jpgimpositiona language-driven sound installationa – by John Caley and Giles Perring :: April 17, 5:00-6:30 pm (EDT) :: Rockefeller Library, Brown University, Second Floor Computer Cluster (and elsewhere in the building) :: BRING YOUR LAPTOP :: part of Transforming the Student’s Experience as Scholar.

imposition emerges from translation, a series of pieces which were developed, in turn, from overboard, our first essay in ambient poetics. imposition uses the same texts and procedures as translation. It continues an investigation of iterative, procedural removal from one text or language to another. Continue reading

Livescribe

smartpen_x220.jpg“A new smartpen could change the way people practice mobile computing by bringing processing power to traditional pen and paper. Made by Livescribe, of Oakland, CA, the smartpen is designed to digitize the words and drawings that a user puts down on paper and bring them to life.

So long as the user writes on paper printed with a special pattern, the smartpen transforms what is written into interactive text. For example, the pen has a recording function, called paper replay, that can record sound and connect it to what the user writes while the sounds are being recorded. Later, the user can tap the pen over what she wrote and replay the associated sounds. “We’re starting to make the whole world of printable surfaces accessible and functional,” says Livescribe CEO Jim Marggraff.” Continue reading Computing on Paper – Livescribe’s smartpen turns a sheet of paper into a computer by Erica Naone, Technology Review.

“Frotzophone” by Adam Parrish

1196048012_zorkmapsmall.pngFrotzophone by Adam Parrish [at the ITP Winter Show and NIME @ Exit Art on December 13, 2007] – Maps, games, music: what do they have in common? Interactive fiction has its roots in maps: Will Crowther’s original Adventure was a faithful simulation of an actual cave in the Colossal Cave system. Some say that the entire genre consists of “interactive maps,” and mapping as a process often serves as the foundation for both designing and playing interactive fiction.

The Frotzophone hijacks a Z-Machine interpreter (a virtual machine originally designed in the 1980s for running interactive fiction on many platforms, and still used today) and extracts information relating to the map that the game is simulating. Continue reading
