WTPh? (What the Phonics) is an interactive installation made by Momo Miyazaki and I (Andrew Spitz). Street names in Denmark are close to impossible for foreigners to pronounce, so we did a little intervention in the touristic areas of Copenhagen. We recorded a Danish person speaking the street names then split up each syllable. In true […]

#theVELUXpose is an interactive installation for VELUX set in the streets of Copenhagen. VELUX specializes in roof windows and our brief was to inspire young urban citizens to see the roof as an opportunity space and aspire to one day own a roof window.

What Line is it Anyway? explores the way people interpret an adjective through the simple task of drawing a line. We crowd sourced 1300 people to draw us a line by using Amazon’s Mechanical Turk, which is an amazing platform to get people (called workers) to do a simple task without them knowing the bigger picture or […]

me, doing this. is a programme built in Max/MSP that visualizes myself programming this programme to visualize myself programming… Yip, coding inception. In realtime (while coding), I collect the mouse data (screen position, mouse down, mouse up), and whether or not I’m currently working or procrastinating. The white lines are when I’m working (the patcher […]

This is my 100th post! Thanks for all the support Nick Maxwell from Nick’s Tutorials, put together an awesome tutorial on how to use Sound Doodle. It’s a lot better than the one I originally  made. Nick makes fantastic Ableton Live tutorials. If you haven’t already, check them out! Enjoy!

This is a work in progress. Motion Grains is an interactive instrument, where the sound is affected by movement. I’m working on this project with Sian Palmer, a contemporary dancer and movement therapist based in Johannesburg. The motion tracking system analyses the dancer and changes parameters from a granular synthesizer. As visualization, I’m converting the […]

I thought I’d share with you a little video from our hacKinect Wednesdays get-together last week (too much fun). This is the first test so it’s VERY rough! We’re communicating between the KinectCoreVision by Patricio González Vivo and Max/MSP via TUIO protocol. I put together a super basic sound engine in Max, just to get […]

Gianpaolo and Sara from sounDesign ran a panel/workshop last weekend at the Enterferenze New Art Festival, and asked some of us around the world to contribute. The topic was “Design o’ the times” based on the concept of time design. I have been wanting to create a time-lapse phonography piece for some time now, so […]

Here’s an interesting project that Gabriel G aka AlphaCore is doing. He is coding live using the Ruby programming language to create MIDI events, which are then played through Tweet A Sound. If you are interested in this kind of stuff, Gabriel has shared his work on the live Ruby music system: The 3 required […]

It has been far too long since I have written a post. I am totally absorbed in designing a new programme continuing with the theme of social sound design. It is no doubt keeping me very busy! I will give more details a bit later. Max/MSP/Jitter Course Last week I was in London attending an […]
