Clavilux 2000 – Interactive instrument for generative music visualization from Jonas Heuer on Vimeo.

The Clavilux 2000 is an interactive instrument for generative music visualization.

The setting of the installation consists of three parts:
– a digital piano with 88 keys and midi output
– a computer running a vvvv patch
– a vertical projection above the keyboard.

For every note played on the keyboard a new visual element appears in form of a stripe, which follows in its dimensions, position and speed the way the particular key was stroke.

Colours give the viewer and listener an impression of the harmonic relations – and each key has it’s own color scheme and “wrong” notes stand out in contrasting colors.

Would love to see Les Dawson do his piano ‘routine’ on it.

EDIT

For people who have no idea who I’m talking about – here’s the man himself.

A Brief History of Pretty Much Everything

Jamie Bell (aka DispleasedEskimo) made this for his AS Art Course.

“This is the final piece for my AS art course, a flipbook made entirely out of biro pens. It’s something like 2100 pages long, and about 50 jotter books. I’d say I worked on and off it for roughly 3 weeks.”

I’m so old and out of touch that I don’t know how old ‘doing an AS’ makes him – but he got full marks.

The Particle v1.0 from Alex Posada on Vimeo.

“The Particle” is a kinetic sculpture that experiments with color, sound and movement.

A sensor monitoring system analyzes the users movements in the exhibition space. Around the space occupied by the sculpture defines a surround sound system that reacts and becomes one with the movement and light.

I’m ordering one for my house.

Steak Filter v0 – init from AKA MEDIA SYSTEM on Vimeo.

For his art piece “Steak Filter”, Noah Feehan ran a video signal of a steak cooking, through the actual steak. The deterioration of the video signal as the moisture is removed becomes a sign of how done the steak is.
