Playpad Circus: Playing Drums and Samples with Ableton Push In our newest Push video, Berlin-beatmaker Playpad Circus puts our instrument through its paces, showing the ins and outs of Drum Mode. Not content just with showing how it’s done, he’s also given us the Rack he used to give to you for free. First of all, check out the video as he whips up a banger of a track in a minute and a half using just a handful of sounds and Push’s real-time step-sequencing and automation abilities. Blog - Projectile Objects (infrequently updated) It’s been a while since I have been able to post some of my projection mapping adventures, but this one with Lazercrunk was fun. You don’t have to be local to appreciate an 8′ tall projection mapped city skyline. 10 buildings, spanning 16′ wide by 8′ high across the stage. Here’s an example of what it looked like by itself.
Video of The Dark Tourist making a track in Push In our newest video, Berlin-based producer The Dark Tourist gets his hands on Push. Like what you heard? That Blade Runner-ish melody was made with a custom-made Rack, based around Analog and Max for Live devices. You can download it for free (requires Live 9.1.2 Suite) and use it in your own Push composition. Le Petit Chef: PM on your Dinner Plate Projection mapping could be coming to a restaurant near you! It’s always a treat to see designers go that extra mile to create beautiful projection mapping content and this piece is no exception. Filip Sterckx and Antoon Verbeek over at SkullMapping put on a wonderful show for their dinner guests. Hit the jump to see the mini-chef in action.

Interview with Robert Henke about Lumière One of the original developers of Ableton Live, internationally acclaimed artist and more recently, sound studies lecturer, Robert Henke has always operated at the intersection of art and technology. His most recent undertaking is Lumière – an ambitious audio-visual spectacle which sees Henke playing and controlling a bank of lasers in precise synchrony with his own beat-driven electronic score. After several performances in Europe and Japan, Lumière is set to be one of the highlights of the upcoming MUTEK festival in Montreal, Canada. While there, Robert Henke will also take part in a conversation with festival founder Alain Mongeau at the Ableton Lounge. We caught up with Robert shortly after he performed Lumière as the closing concert of this year’s CTM festival in Berlin.

Machine Love: Karenn Techno doesn't get much rawer than it does with Karenn. But much like a rock star's expertly crafted bed-head, a lot of care and skill goes into getting things rough around the edges. Arthur Cayzer (Pariah) and Jamie Roberts (Blawan) are both acclaimed solo producers. Conductive Ink + Projection Mapping = Magic Storytelling As part of their presence at the inaugural Retail Design Expo, Dalziel and Pow created a space to stand out from the crowd, a conversation starter: experimental, innovative, playful, integrated, exploratory and, to many visitors, surprising. The idea came from the work they created for Portuguese childrenswear brand Zippy, magnified as a prototype to test ideas and push the range of interactions and feedback. Screen-printed illustrations spring to life when touched, as conductive ink triggers a host of playful digital animations – a mix of informative and charming content, from product information to brand stories to chasing ducks. Pushing the boundaries of storytelling within a space, making it fun and engaging, putting ideas before hardware. A total of 48 interactions and over 100 unique animations make up the broad spectrum of content on the stand, from simple sound toys to more complex exchanges that layer projection mapping and movement around a physical space.
Fadecandy — Micah Elizabeth Scott Fadecandy's temporal dithering algorithm can create super-smooth fades and nuanced colors at a remarkably wide range of brightness levels. The controller hardware updates every LED about 400 times per second to rapidly oscillate between nearby brightness levels for each color primary, gaining some additional brightness precision. This precision gets even higher when averaging over time or space, meaning that larger or more diffuse sculptures achieve even higher levels of precision in low-brightness colors. In addition to this dithering algorithm, the Fadecandy firmware's 48-bit color processing pipeline includes gamma correction, white balance, brightness control, and keyframe interpolation. Fadecandy is open source, so you can customize any part of the software or hardware when you're inspired to push the boundaries of what's possible.
Moderat Filed under: Gear 07/29/2013 This is a big week for Moderat. Not only will the German trio—which consists of Modeselektor (a.k.a. Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian "Charlie" Szary) and Apparat (a.k.a. Sascha Ring)—be releasing its long-awaited sophomore album, II, but it will also be debuting a brand-new live show at London's Eastern Electrics festival. Asteriskos - Yeasayer Crystalline Stage The Yeasyer Set Design was a collaborative effort orchestrated and sponsored by The Creators Project. Casey Reas, software art pioneer was recruited to conceive the stage set and visuals. Taking inspiration from laboratory outposts, research stations and communications hubs, Reas envisioned a fractured time-space environment that utilizes the visual phenomena of reflection and refraction to create warped and glitchy tour visuals that collapse the physical environment of the stage in on itself.
Vladimir Coman-Popescu Hey, dudes and dudettes!I make all sorts of fun electronic music and sound-related stuff that I give away for free on the Internet. These take lots of time and effort to make, and apart from a bunch of YouTube ads which provide me with insanely small payments (I don't allow those pesky in-stream video ads on my stuff), I don't make money off any of this work. Here's how this works: If you become my patron, you'll be pledging to offer me a certain amount of money each time I release a video on here. You can offer as much or as little as you want (every dollar helps!)
