Sound Wave by Jean Shin

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Sound Wave – Melted records on wooden armature – Jean Shin's installation at Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York

Records were melted and sculpted to form a cascading wave, dotted with bursts of colorful labels. The resulting structure speaks to the inevitable waves of technology that render each successive generation of recordable media obsolete. The piece also aims to physically manifest the ephemerality of music as well as one man’s musical tastes, as represented by his personal record collection.

# GrooveStep – GrooveStep is a portable sample based step sequencer and that allows people to write music anywhere with the Nintendo DS. The first beta is out now!

# I Can Haas Stereo? Lolcat Reaktor Delay FX

Peter Dines writes:

Ladies, Gentlemen and Felines, I have created what is arguably the world’s first lolcat-powered Reaktor effect. I beg your forgiveness.

While working in Reaper I noticed it has a handy Haas effect plugin created in its native JS format. I thought I’d edit it to add some enhancements but decided I was too lazy to learn a new language right now, so I did it in Reaktor instead. It took minutes to throw together – the longest chore was finding, trimming and inserting the cheezburger cat graphic.

# FAKE presents: Pass the Dutch – Nice compilation featuring a track by rekkerd.org sample remix contest winner Jonas the Plugexpert.

# Best of Mother Earth: 1996 McDonalds Hamburger – I stopped eating at McDonalds a while ago. Not because I don't like the taste of their food, but because I don't like their business ethics much. This 12 years old burger makes me feel quite good about my decision.

# Mac anyone? New tracker on it’s way!

Seth Sandler writes:

For the last few weeks (with the help of my mentor Christian Moore) I’ve been working on porting over touchlib (the main tracker of the NUIGroup community) to openframeworks. A few reasons we chose to use openframeworks is because it’s (1) Cross-platform (it’ll work on windows/mac/linux), (2) It’s easy to add and develop on (minimal coding experience required).

If you didn’t catch that, this means we will have a new, full functional tracker that works on Mac! Many have been waiting for this! =)
