My first project was an audio piece combining four sine oscillators and four band-limited noise generators in a descending four-note pattern. I mainly focused on how the sounds interacted with each other, creating beat frequencies and complicated phantom sub-rhythms.
I’ve recorded several performances of the project that you can listen to below. Each is a slightly different live tuning of the piece’s parameters.
Exploring Jitter, I looped and distorted a video from Cut discussing break-ups to juxtapose conclusive stories with a never-ending context. The resulting piece plays with resolution, playback speed, and video mixing.
I discovered this patch also produced interesting results when combined with a video from my Discotheque 1 project made in Processing.
This piece explores extreme uses of contemporary AI-powered creative tools, specifically GAN-generated portraits using thispersondoesnotexist.com, neural filters for emotions using Photoshop, and music generated in the style of existing musicians using Jukebox.
For my final project, I wanted to explore generative typography. Max’s tools unfortunately aren't as sophisticated as those in p5.js, so I opted to embrace the low-tech aesthetic and create a piece reminiscent of WordArt or bowling alley strike animations. Unlike my prior projects, this one is autonomous and proceeds based off a text document.
