For me, 2013 was a year of extreme flux. Despite all the dramatic changes that occurred, two things remained constant: music and beer. This work is a snapshot of my musical style, visual aesthetics, and drink choices. All source photos taken with an iPhone 4. Video created with Processing. Music performed live with a Moog […]
I often work with arbitrary pitch collections in Just Intonation that can change from place to place. As such, I usually deal with my pitches as harmonies or sets of ratios rather than scales or modes, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to do both. SuperCollider has a built in mechanism for working with […]
A common thing to do when working with pitch is transpose them by some amount: down a 4th, up an octave, etc. If you are working with equal temperament (12 or other) you simply add your transposition interval to every note: [0, 4, 7] + 4 = [4, 8, 11] or [C, E, G] up […]
Since I work in Just Intonation I’m always looking for new ways to organize and think about ratios. Recently I came across the mathematical idea called the Stern-Brocot Tree from a very nice video posted by a friend. This is a way to represent all whole number ratios in their lowest terms as a binary […]
More tweaks to my live coding setup in vim. Trying out the motus color scheme. Using delimitMate for automatic enclosures, SuperTab for autocomplete, snipmate for snippet expansion. Also decided to try using keyCastr to display all my keystrokes. Started out with a basic master effects synth and bussing setup. I have a routine spawning a […]
Practicing jumping around Vim to quickly edit parts of existing code. All code was pre-written with the intent that certain parts would be edited as things progressed.
