“Better than Live” @ Gruta Creative Lab (2015) Tue, 16 Jun 2015 08:49:35 +0000 Continue reading “Better than Live” @ Gruta Creative Lab (2015)]]> May 30th, 2015, I played a rare “live” gig at Gruta Creative Lab, Brasilia. This is a short selection of the tunes I played, done in FL Studio. The following isn’t a live recording (unfortunately one wasn’t made), but a recreation using the same patterns and roughly the same structure. (I was improvising in Fruity’s “Performance Mode”).

Hence “better than live” 😉

Zewp! MansionHouse – Live at Arvore Monstro (2014) Mon, 15 Jun 2015 00:48:11 +0000 Continue reading Zewp! MansionHouse – Live at Arvore Monstro (2014)]]>

A live performance combining MansionHouse (a Pure Data based synth, programmed with Gates of Dawn) and a version of Zewp! adapted to run in Processing using my Art Toys library. The Zewp! Processing sketch is just a controller, sending messages via Open Sound Control to the PD hosted synths. There’s also FL Studio running in the background.

Golden Pond (2014) Sun, 14 Jun 2015 15:08:19 +0000 A library I created to learn a bit of Haskell and to make a sequence of chords that can be used as the basis of a song. It’s a small experiment that I may take further in future.

The code on GitHub »

The backing chords of this track were produced from the library.

Gates of Dawn (2013 – 2014) Sun, 14 Jun 2015 14:46:14 +0000 Continue reading Gates of Dawn (2013 – 2014)]]> Gates of Dawn is a Python library to generate PureData patches. PureData is a great free software synth construction kit, but as a coder I’d like a more programmatic way of building synths.

Gates of Dawn let’s me write code that looks like this :

from god import *

with patch("hello.pd") as f :
    dac_ ( sin_ ( slider("pitch",0,1000) ) )

to make a simple slider to control a sin oscillator which feeds into the dac~ object.
