Pixelmap is a system developed to produce simple geometric patterns based on a simple object language. Pixelmap reacts to messages sent via UDP/TCP. This allows the system to work across networks and any application can be the source for these messages, as long as it supports UDP/TCP [such as Max, Pd, Supercollider]. The intention is for the system to allow composers to accompany their performances with realtime generative graphics.
AudioPool is an ambient project based around a self sequencing pool of sound files and the representation of those sounds in a 2D space. Sounds are sampled from a variety of sources or chosen by the user, and various parameters of the sequence can be automated or controlled.
A prototype sequencer that uses bitmaps as wavetable sound sources. Users can draw and load their own bitmaps into an editable sequence.
