Studio weekend 2

This weekends mission was to try and ‘hack’ an E4L MAX patch. My aim was the make the sound more reverberant and large in the space the longer you hold on to the plant. First of all I needed to figure out how to make the counter object reset then I can use this to […]

Envelop: Recording Ambisonic File

Instructions for Recording Beneath the metering is the recording section. The E4L Master Bus can record and save multi-channel AIFF files containing the Ambisonics audio. These files can later be played back using the E4L B-Format Sampler or other Ambisonics software. To record Ambisonics audio: First, ensure that Live playback is stopped (the controls are disabled while playback is […]

Evaluation

Overall I was quite pleased the final installation. Although there are a few things I know I can work on to improve, I think it was a great starting point for me to understand the Sound Lab and how the array works as well as the limitations of the room – in terms of space, […]

Installation Day 2

After yesterdays sorting out of projections I have been rethinking the space quite a lot. There is a lot of bleed from one screen to another so I think I really need to block off all corners of screens so that the back projections have a clean framed image on the white sheets. The array […]

Installation Day 1

Day one of install was mainly to get the projectors up and running. We had the box that enabled me to split the screens 3 ways but was just waiting on long enough cables to run from the computer to the projectors. I didn’t have the visuals ready yet so I just projected my Noctilucence […]

Maxuino//ABleton + Humidity Sensor and Soild Moisture Sensors

The next step was to get the humidity and soil moisture sensors working with MAX MSP. link to tutorials: http://www.maxuino.org/video After uploading the Firmata I downloaded the maxuino max patch from the Maxuino website. I also needed to download a CNMAT-externals for the arduino to run through max. Then, following the stages in the maxuino.maxhelp […]

Arduino + Moisture and Humidity Sensors

Over the past few days I have been thinking about active environments and what makes up an active environment. Something that has come to mind is moisture and humidity/temperature. So I thought I would buy a couple of sensors and try it out with Arduino. I have never really got to grips with Arduino and […]

Video: connecting MIDI Sprout to Ableton

Max4Live +Ableton

Even though I have been working on a massive patch for most of the semester I have just found out a SUPER easy way to have everything working. I have just been shown how to Max4Live in Ableton and it just made my whole life SO much easier! Now I can really see how all […]

Preliminary Set Up

  This was supposed to be a preliminary set up but it started falling into place and as I found out that the screens could stay up over the Christmas break  – and the layout was likely not to change, it has ended up being the final set up.   This is a sketch of […]
