An augmented reality iOS app. The app finds prominent lines in the cameras image and sonifies them according to a fixed system. Angle determines pitch, and length determines volume and timbre. Can be used in a snapshot, visual score mode and in a continuous mode.

Grains

Visual Software

A set of personal image processing techniques I created using OpenFrameworks and GLSL shaders based on cellular automata. This set of techniques was used for many of my exhibited works as well as several performances, especially in collaboration with Lemon Guo. Pieces include Solstice, Untitled, Blood, Not Fog, and much of the imagery on this website.

The basic structure of the program is open-source and free to use and is available here from my github.

Ison

Music

Music digitally synthesized with RTcmix based off of harmonic ratios. These waves are then distorted very slightly to microtonal variations, which creates difference tones which gave the piece its mood and rhythm. The drone is supplemented by notes tuned to the 2nd mode of the Byzantine tuning for chants.

Experiments with neural net image generation using odd datasets.

Music Chambers
