This summer I had the opportunity to play a gig at the W3rkH0f Ambi Media Incubator summer party 2018 in Neunkirch (CH). Jana Honegger and Kent Clelland, the hosts and organizers, did a great job and created a wonderful atmosphere.
Music video for the track “Heissenberg” from “endless undo“. Filmed with a mobile phone, video processing done with jitter.
I’m very happy to announce my first solo release on the danish label clang.
In June I’ve been in Mannheim again, playing a gig with Benjamin Brodbeck @ zeitraumexit. It’s good to see that the same crew (Flo&Volker) is still there and that their concert series “elektrosmog” is still happening.
This post is more a reminder to myself: every now and then I keep running into Core Audio – and need to start all over again, cause I can hardly remember anything from the last encounter… Yes Core Audio is quite convoluted as it goes very deep, but it opens a lot of possibilities.
In MaxMSP it’s very easy to create relatively good looking graphical user interfaces (GUIs) quickly, which no doubt can be very helpful in a lot of situations (user guidance, performance, teaching etc.). But it’s also true, that the display of (especially dynamic) graphics taxes the CPU quite a lot.
Lately Benjamin and I went into the studio and had a little recording session of our duo improvisation work. Here is a 95 seconds summary…
Recently I’ve been playing a live solo set, which I haven’t done for a long time. On the whole the trip to Mannheim was worth it and fun to do – thanks to the elektrosmog team – Flo and Volker (the other one) – for inviting me. Here are some excerpts
I’m slowly trying to replace all external objects in my performance system by 64-bit versions, so I can finally run MaxMSP in 64-bit mode. Most of the externals in my setup are from code that I wrote myself – so no big problem updating those. But one of the few externals from other people that i use is the famous sigmund~ object by Miller Puckette.
On a mac the Accelerate framework delivers a lot of very useful DSP functions. Most of them are pretty straight forward to use, some are a little complicated. One of those is vDSP_deq22 / vDSP_deq22D which implements a vectorized 2 pole 2 zero filter (biquad).
