Taking a page from my co-worker Chris, I've started gathering little snippets of media on youtube and vimeo that I can draw inspiration from, I'm realizing I need to shift my focus a bit to really stay up in this game. It's such a different thing we're trying to do here, ideas need to come from different places.
Taking a bit of advice from this guy...
One of the more fun videos came by way of another co-worker, which is driving some other stuff I'm thinking about right now, too. Looking at this sort of thing does really solidify how much I enjoy having tactile components beyond just a touchscreen. Something to keep thinking about. Check it out, fun times:
Hmm...lastly I started playing around with another prototyping framework, trying to find a good sandbox for doing sound driven gfx or gfx driven sound or whatever other combination of those things I can come up with. I gotta admit I was a little charmed to see it come up in a tk windows, of course my first thought was "aww, i miss IDLE". But yeah, check out Pure Data, it's a bit sparsely documented, but it's fun. If you're familiar with patch-"programming", you'll feel right at home here (without having to pay for Max/MSP!).
Ok just kidding. Lastly for real, here's some fun generative audio stuff to get you through any boring times you might encounter this weekend. I wonder what an evolution on this idea of generative music might look like...
