Sound Sketches, 4.10.09

On one end of the market the introduction of computation to the world of consumer/prosumer sound manipulation has resulted in a screenful of cold interfaces and technical barriers to entry.  On the other end, the use of computation has produced a wide variety of accessible sound games which are less about quality sound, more about enhanced game play, and usually very annoying. This project aims to find a space in between. By utilizing a drawing interface that lends itself quickly to sound exploration, and by linking that exploration to basic elements of sound production, a visually simplified, yet sonically powerful sound tool can be created. Special thanks to Cloud, and to the Processing and Minim communities for making all of this possible.
The Sign Wave Signal below was developed by Damien Di Fede, and served as the starting point for the devlopment of my sound sketches.
