Scratch Markup Language (.sml) SML (Scratch Markup Language) is a new file format for recording and replaying turntablism.

Scratch Markup Language (.sml)

We’ve developed open-source tools for accurately capturing the record and crossfader movements of a scratch DJ, allowing us to analyze, transcribe, and recreate scratch performances. We want to do for turntablism what Graffiti Markup Language has done for tagging — especially teaching giant robot arms how to scratch. At Art Hack Day we collaborated with other artists and programmers to develop the first prototypes of ScratchML. We used timecode vinyl to capture record movements ($10) and a hacked VCA fader + Arduino to record the crossfader ($30). Graffiti Markup Language. How to get your Art in the MoMA. 1.

I installed the app around NYC over three days, collecting more than a thousand photos. Before sharing the photos online, I decided to exhibit them in the same places they were originally captured. So I wrote another app that could be remotely triggered after being installed on all the computers in one location. At 2 Apple Stores, Creating Art via Webcam, Secretly.

McDonald, 25, created another little program and returned to the two stores, one on 14th Street and the other on Prince Street. This time, after a picture was taken, it was immediately put into an array of older photos that would begin running across the screens. Suddenly, people sitting at the computers were looking at pictures of themselves that dissolved into photos of others who also had gazed into the screens. Ai Weiwei – FUCK OFF – Bookmarklet.

The SOPA (H.R.3261) & PIPA (S.968) are terrible pieces of legislation that gives broad powers for the courts to take down sites by claims from “infringed” users. If SOPA or PIPA are voted for by Congress, it could devastate the artistic expression and livelihood of many artists, hackers, and entrepreneurs. Protest the SOPA/PIPA bills and install the blackout code on your site to let your visitors know what they could miss out if SOPA/PIPA do pass. Paste this code into your Tumblr themes, website, and more… The color can also be changed to a hex code, an rgb(), or rgba() format.
