Another supported project – electron micrographs of really small things printed really big (1.5m square 1.2m square, max size for printing with this technique by the supplier).

Supported Projects 6 November, 2011 at 6:07 am

I’ve supported a few ‘crowd-funded’ projects in recent months, including the production of a DVD of visuals by the Joshua Light Show in New York (who provided visuals for famous music acts in the 1960s), The Sensorium Project (an 11.11m dome for video/interactive/psychedelic art to travel festivals here in Australia), and helping Professor Kliq (a musician / producer in Chicago) obtain his music composition degree.

The Sensorium Project has not yet reached its funding target and has just 5 days to go; I have just doubled my pledge and encourage any Australian VJs and visualists to contribute if they can.

See the new Supported Projects page for more links, videos, etc.


spxlAudioToMidi 29 June, 2010 at 3:38 pm

Processing sample: spxlAudioToMidi


View sketch page for source code, Windows, Mac and Linux executables.

A small application made with Processing to produce MIDI control messages from a live audio feed. Auto-levelling frequency band meters are used to obtain “peak” output values across the entire audio spectrum analysed (whereas it is usual to have strong bass response with weaker treble response), and easing is applied to make the levels less erratic. 10 separate monitor outputs are supplied, where each monitor is attached to one of the frequency band meters and that meter’s output is scaled to the particular output range for the monitor, allowing for a reduced final output range as well as inverted ranges. Controls are provided to select the MIDI output device and the MIDI channel to use, as well as for selecting which monitors are connected to which meters and the monitor output ranges.

sIFR fonts delivered by

What is this about?.. A neat little service allowing you to use any of over 1000 freely available fonts for the heading elements on your website by means of including a line of “code” in the <head> section of your page. Sweet beans. :o)

It works by using Javascript to replace each heading element (<h1>, <h2> and so on) by a little box of Flash. If Javascript or Flash is unavailable, the original text/font is displayed. Win-win!
