the fourth dorkbotnyc meeting was held on march 7th, 2001. we started the
meeting off with the brand new dorkbotnyc
theme song by christopher bailey. it was a big hit!
Tom Ritchford gets loopy:
Live loops of MIDI wind, voices and more result in a very personal sound
that has variously been described as "a celestial glee club" and "a
beautiful electronic haze".
Dean Snell: The Grid: Phase one Amoeba
An exploration of the use of generative techniques to
create an emergent work combining Video, Graphics and
Music. A simple cellular automata controls both video
and music in a 16 celled grid made within the Max
environment with Nato controlled video.
Noah Vawter: How to short-circuit the subliminal matrix:
Presenting his scrabbled hacking of the Analog Devices
DSP Evaluation Kit in a how-to forum, he will teach you
how to create torrentially-evolving, unique electronic
sounds (on a budget).
Joshua Goldberg's Talking Popcorn:
A Max-based morse-code/popcorn interpreter commissioned by the
artist Nina Katchadourian.
Sadly, the machine Joshua was using kept crashing, so we didn't actually
get to see his piece working. We're going to try it again at the next
some images from the meeting are here.
the next dorkbotnyc meeting is on wednesday, april 4th, 2001.
see you there!
