Introduction In Steganography 19 - The Order of the Code, you learned how to encode messages by sorting a collection of arbitrary things.

Steganography 20 - Generate Melody from Text

Music is made of melodies which are collections of notes. Why not compose a song to encode a text in the melody? All you need to define is the set of notes you want to use in the song. As there are Factorial(count) enumerable permutations, more possible notes mean a bigger alphabet for the secret message. Hello World Let's start with a simple example. I decided to allow 42 different characters: a-z 0-9 . and space. Hide Copy Code. Strange Musical Instruments Never Seen Before - Man Invents Hundreds of them - The Anarchestra. György Ligeti.

John Cage photos courtesy of EM Records/Omega Point Several weeks ago, I began sending out inquiries about John Cage to an intentionally broad range of musicians, essentially asking: Do you like his work, and, if so, would you talk to me about it?

Lectures on Nothing: John Cage's Century

Obscure noise artists received the questions, as did rock musicians who have appeared on "Saturday Night Live", metal dudes, warped pop chanteuses, singer-songwriter types, and bleeding-edge hip-hop acts. Automatic Orchestra - Algorithmic Sound Composition And Networked Music. The Automatic Orchestra is an audio installation exploring algorithmic composition and networked music.

Automatic Orchestra - Algorithmic Sound Composition And Networked Music

A common set of rules distributed among a network of MIDI devices opens up a melodic space orchestrated by automatic logic. The perpetual interaction among the devices and the interpretation of encoded musical messages blurs the distinctiveness between structured composition and performative improvisation. The setup consists of 12 pods. One pod consists of a microcontroller mounted on a custom PCB board which is attached to a set of speakers. CEC — eContact! 17.4 — Résurgence et évolution.

Scientists perform their data. As part of CERN’s 60th birthday celebrations, a group of seven physicists and engineers at CERN came together to form LHChamber Music and present a selection of musical compositions. The musical scores are based on the sonification of data obtained by four detectors – ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb – during the Large Hadron Collider run 2010-2013. The video (link is external) shows each musical piece performed individually and as an ensemble by CERN’s very own researchers; the music was played in the four experimental caverns and in the CERN Control Centre (CCC) and features a harp, a guitar, two violins, a keyboard, a clarinet and a flute.

Domenico Vicinanza, Arts and Humanities manager at DANTE (link is external) in Cambridge UK, collaborated with CERN and created the compositions by transposing data obtained from ATLAS, CMS, ALICE and LHCb. Kadebostany. Résultats de la recherche (page 1) Concert intégral de "Wingbeats", dans le cadre de Némo, le festival arts numériques d'Arcadi Ile-de-France (29 novembre 2013) DIN Is Noise. There are over 3 hours of video tutorials & demos to help you learn DIN Is Noise & explore its features. Unfortunately, the tutorial videos are not upto date as they were made with an older version of DIN on GNU/Linux. I couldnt update them when I moved away from GNU/Linux to execute the DIN Is Noise port for Windows and Mac OS X. Still, with some patience, you can learn the key unchanged features of DIN from the old tutorial videos. btw, al~dinja's page on vimeo contains more detailed description, commentary and index.

La Machine du Moulin Rouge organise le premier Paris International Festival Of Psychedelic Music. Excellente initiative car, s’il est un peu cavalier de parler de « revival psyché », il faut bien admettre que le genre a de nouveau le vent en poupe. Que l’on pense à MGMT qui s’éloigne un peu plus de la pop à chaque album, à Of Montreal qui creuse ce sillon depuis un moment, ou encore à Jacco Gardner, Tame Impala, Outfit, voire Jackson Scott, adoubé par le site Pitchfork grâce à un unique morceau, il est indéniable que les guitares distordues, les mélodies répétitives et les buvards connaissent un regain d’intérêt certain. On ne parle même pas de tout ces groupes pop qui ont malgré tout digéré les compilations Nugget’s de leurs parents, La Femme en tête. Mo'Fo'14. La prog du MOFO 2014. La une. EMB Concerts Sannois.
