NodeBeat: Generative Music Application for iOS and Desktop

It’s been a while since I posted and my guilty conscious is saying “now’s the perfect time”.

The past few weeks, I’ve been working on my first iOS application called NodeBeat.

NodeBeat is a collaboration between myself and Justin Windle. It’s an experimental node-based audio sequencer and generative music application for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and TUIO devices.

TEDxSanDiego Presentation

In 2010, I was approached by Shannon Spanhake to program a simulation for her mobile pollution monitors for her TEDxSanDiego Presentation. The simulation showcased mobile pollutions monitors traveling throughout the San Diego area gathering pollution information as they travel. The simulation helped present the significant cost reduction between current pollution monitor and Shannon Spanhake's mobile solution.

Slider: A Dynamic Multi-player Game

Slider is a tangible multi-player game. The games utilizes reactivision software, along with Flash, to detect fiduciary (symbol) block movements. The game is played by moving these symbols on a table. Players can enter and exit the playing field at any time. The game adapts to the number of players. The lower the score the better; the first player with a score of 12 ends the game.

Analog Laser Harp

The Analog Laser Harp is a project I conceptualized as my final project for an electronic technologies course at UCSD in 2006. When a hand crosses a laser's beam, a analog tone is generated and produced by 4 speakers embedded in the instrument. The harp has tuning knobs to allow for various musical scales.

Audiotouch OS – Flash Multi-touch Audio Environment

Well, I never did a ‘proper’ video of my Audiotouch work, so after 2 years I decided to reshoot some video and experiment with my new HD video camera. The video is also in preparation for another how-to video that I’m developing that builds off the Mtmini video (check that out if you haven’t ) and shows how to create a simple multi-touch surface quick and easy.

I’m hoping to eventually get back to these applications and improve on a few of them. They’ve gone untouched for almost 2 years and were originally written prior to the iphone, ipad, and microsoft surface. It’s amazing how far the technology has come in such a short time.
