prototyping new machine: the Scan Table

We are prototyping a new machine. The Scan Table is a computer controlled ‘turntable’ equipped with a Fire-I cam + a USB-microscope. A stepper motor is controlled by a max patch using an arduino board and a stepper driver to scan small objects. The images are live processed by a jitter patch and projected. The same objects are also used to create live processed sound by a max/msp patch. All three patches (for motor control, video and sound are exchanging control data and influencing each other creating an unstable situation.

The first public usage of this beast will be in the project ‘Die Situation ist unter Kontrolle’ at Kunstmühle this weekend Nov 4 + 5.

Some video from the machine at work will follow soon.

Kunstmuehle Live Mic @ Locustream SoundMap

The live stream of the Kunstmühle sound environment is now part of the Locustream SoundMap | Live Worldwide Open Microphones of locusonus.org.

Locus Sonus is a research group specialized in audio art. It is organized as a post graduate lab by the Art Schools of Aix en Provence (ESAA) and Bourges (ENSA) in France.

In the moment the Locustream is only possible in mono. Our Safari browser here doesn’t like to stream it, but Firefox does!
Furthermore we are still streaming in stereo over http://s10.myradiostream.com/31230.htm, although the server stops every now and then.

Our microphone now has a windshield build from a colander and silk stocking:
