carsten nicolai sound, large-scale LED screens Carsten Nicolai presented his new work α (alpha) pulse during Art Basel Hong Kong 2014. α (alpha) pulse's generated light patterns pulsated in a synchronized frequency across the entire façade of Hong Kong's iconic 490 meter high International Commerce Centre on the Kowloon harbor front. Like a lighthouse, the tower was sending its pulses into the city, reaching out to Hong Kong residents and visitors. α (alpha) pulse is an experimental construction that looks at the effects of audiovisual stimulation on the human perception.

Notations 21: 165 Musicians Visualize Sheet Music in Unusual Ways by Maria Popova What the color wheel has to do with Beethoven and supporting arts education. There’s something especially mesmerizing about the cross-pollination of the senses, particularly in visualizing music. Morphogenetic Creations by Andy Lomas Created by a mathematician, digital artist and Emmy award winning supervisor of computer generated effects – Andy Lomas, Morphogenetic Creations is a collection of works that explore the nature of complex forms that can be produced by digital simulation of growth systems. These pieces start with a simple initial form which is incrementally developed over time by adding iterative layers of complexity to the structure. The aim is to create structures emergently: exploring generic similarities between many different forms in nature rather than recreating any particular organism.
MADE(by)FRUTOS The RhinoBOT is an open source and 3D printed robot that is fun to build and easy to expand. It can be used for educational purposes or even as a sumobot! It’s robot is the last printbot based on animals that has come to the DIY bq family. This portal helps teach kids about robotics using fun cartoons characters like Andy, Ana, MAF or the Prof!.
Variable 4 Variable 4 is an outdoor sound installation that translates weather conditions into musical patterns in real time. Using meteorological sensors connected to a custom software environment, the weather itself acts as conductor, navigating through a map of twenty-four specifically-written movements. Every aspect of the piece, from broad harmonic progressions down to individual notes and timbres, is influenced by changes in the environment: wind speed, rainfall, solar radiation, humidity, tropospheric variance, temperature, and more. The resultant composition is performed over an indeterminate duration through eight loudspeakers integrated into the landscape. More information
RC Hobby Controllers and Arduino RC Hobby Controllers and Arduino Skill Level: Intermediate by NPoole | May 22, 2012 | 39 comments Remote Control Arduino Robots, cars, robotcars, and all sorts of prank devices require some degree of remote control.

Tightly integrating hardware and software, his artistic work is the result of attempts to think beyond media, in a realm where sound, images and processes cohabit and answer to each other in meaningfull ways. His work is regularily presented in international new media and music events. He was awared a first prize in Bourges for software design (with Jean Piché for Cecilia) and an honorable mention in Ars Electronica in Digital Music (with artificiel, for Bulbes)

When Plants Jam with Synths: Leslie Garcia’s Open Project Lets Plants Talk with Sound Pulsu(m) Plantae _ project presentation from LessNullVoid on Vimeo. You may have seen a plant used as a musical instrument before, by measuring capacitance across the leafy life form and turning it into a touch sensor. This is something different: it’s letting the plant itself express communication through sound, using biofeedback to turn the living systems on the plant into something audible.
