Net_Music_Weekly: Visualisation of Live Code

livecoding.jpgPosted by Alex McLean: I wrote a paper with Dave Griffiths and Nick Collins on the visualisation of live code, exploring ideas around live coding interfaces, accepted for the EVA London 2010 conference in July. A HTML version is below, or see the PDF Preprint.

Visualisation of Live Code by Alex McLean (Goldsmiths), Dave Griffiths (FoAM), Nick Collins (University of Sussex) and Geraint Wiggins (Goldsmiths) — Abstract: In this paper we outline the issues surrounding live coding which is projected for an audience, and in this context, approaches to code visualisation. This includes natural language parsing techniques, using geometrical properties of space in language semantics, representation of execution flow in live coding environments, code as visual data and computer games as live coding environments. We will also touch on the unifying perceptual basis behind symbols, graphics, movement and sound. Continue reading

PdCon09 [br Sao Paulo]

pdcon09.jpgPdCon09 — Third International Puredata Convention :: July 19 – 26, 2009 :: Sao Paulo, Brazil :: Call for Submissions — Deadline: March 15, 2009.

Puredata, or just Pd, is an open source tool for multimedia programming. Because of its open source nature, much of its development result from a community effort of developers worldwide. Some centers do have more people engaged, like the places that held the two previous conventions. The first convention took place in Graz, Austria, in 2004. The second happened in Montreal, Canada, in 2007. It is a great satisfaction that we continue this event by bringing it to yet another continent, with the intent to promote the formation of an important group of developers locally. Continue reading

Live Stage: Joan La Barbara + Kurt Ralske [us NYC]

jlbrtvstill2.jpgArts Electric, a program of Electronic Music Foundation, presents An Evening with Joan La Barbara and Kurt Ralske :: November 17, 2008; 8:30 pm :: Experiments in the Studio, Merce Cunningham Dance Studio, 55 Bethune Street (Westbeth), NYC :: Admission free :: Call 212.255.8240 x14 for more information.

Composer/performer Joan La Barbara writes: “I’ll be performing my works Shimmer and ROTHKO with live video projection by Kurt Ralske. Shimmer explores impossible sounds, sounds inside the mind, and the exploration of the creative process in real-time. ROTHKO, monochromatic and densely layered, was inspired by the paintings in the Rothko Chapel in Houston.” Kurt Ralske’s video projections mix pre-selected images with live capture/live modified ones, using his own specialized software to allow La Barbara’s live voice and sonic atmospheres to modulate the visuals.
