what is soundwidgets.com?
It's a blog where I post cool stuff I find on the web. I try to post projects which more or less relate to the above topics. Sometimes I just post random stuff.
This also acts as an informal project blog for a music control device I'm designing and building called the Stribe.
I also occasionally post clips and info relating to experimental electronic music I make under the name phineus.
Latest tracks by phineus do you sell stuff?
Actually, yes! You can support The Stribe Project by buying kits from CuriousInventor.com, or by buying Stribe.org T-Shirts or paticipating on the Stribe Project Forum.
You can support Phineus by ordering the Compleat Works of Phineus on USB hard-drive for $25 including shipping. Send e-mail to order. what does "stribe" mean?
It means "stripe" or "striped cloth" in Danish.
Novation’s new monome controller in action. 3-color buttons, seamless integration with Ableton Live. Only apparent drawback is it only does MIDI via Automap mode. But at only $200! street it's definitely worth exploring.
Foxy's next challenge is getting the Max patches sorted. I'm still a bit all-thumbs with Max myself. I can probably cobble something together, but if someone has or can make an elegant solution to run 2 8-stribe Stribes (2 Arduinos) and 2+ monomes (not sure if he's going Arduinome or using monome boards), please give a shout-out on the Stribe Forum!
I would have loved to be at this event in Princeton Oct 3 but just couldn't work it out. Hopefully there will be a next time... Some consolation is this great Vimeo page with tons of great footage: http://vimeo.com/groups/monomeetfall2009 as well as some awesome live sets!
I hear there were also some great live performances in the evenings so when I find some video or audio of those I'll post them here...
Moldover's new CD not only delivers music, it completely redefines what it means to "play an album"... Moldover's CD packaging itself IS a new musical instrument! The CD is mounted on a custom designed circuit board, intricately patterned and powering a "light-Theremin". Yes! You play the artwork and it makes sound!
TracyEvansProductions, a company that specializes in interactive tradeshow exhibits and other multimedia, has integrated Stribes into a kiosk that interactively explains the interaction of water and oil in wells for Schlumberger.
Kudos to Scott Driscoll @ Curious Inventor for making this all happen Stribe-wise!
