pulsers 17 : microsequencers

leave a comment »

Pulsers: microsequencers interacting in a force field, controlled as a rhythm instrument. They are born free, but get enslaved to other’s tempi. Active and inactive responding to triggers. Alife, connectivity, polyrhytms and texture. Synth and processed guitar soundscape. Code: Processing. (version updated after the Aveiro EAW 2017 conference) I’ve decided to create video pieces with my Processing sketcher. This is the first in a series

Live at Handmade Music by Peter Kirn – Createdigitalmusic.com

leave a comment »

“Pulsantes” was performed live by Peter Kirn, from Createdigitalmusic.com at the Handmade Music show
on March 19, at 3rd Ward, Brooklin, New York.


He managed to run both the Processing sketches and their corresponding PureData patches, connected by OSC, with success!

nice tele-acting, I don’t have a robot yet, but I can play live at New York without travelling – the future, for sure.

Pulsantes (Alphas)

leave a comment »

An artificial life environment that generates rythms and sounds. Agents move freely, guided by their own will, adapting to the medium forces. They send messages to their friends, that get get frozen when receiving this messages, and then awaken. You can ‘play live’ with this creatures, altering the way they react to outer forces, running away, freezing or wandering. It is planned to add wind and realtime control on the forces with midi knobs, and some regeneration of inner rythms.

PureData receives ‘pulses’ generated by the internal micro-sequencers of each ‘pulsante’, triggering sounds. The background forces modulate the sonic ambient.

All it’s just Alpha developing, and I mixed several different versions of the work in progress, from the first little bugs to the more complex actual environment.

I just saw Tiction on Create Digital Music, and thought I should share this early version.
