Digital Wedding Guestbook

For a wedding I facilitated a digital guestbook. It consisted of 3 parts: 1. an application where people could record a personal message/sound for the couple in 6 steps in front of a camera and microphone 2. an application to playback all the messages (including scans of additional written explanations and audio-only recordings) 3. two videosample remixes of all the material

Senna: Videosampling for kids

Playful educational program that enables kids to make music with the videos of their choice. I participated in this project while working for Eboman/Smadsteck. It is completely made with max/msp (but it does include a few custom java externals). I was responsible for the video playback, audio effects, pattern mixing and editing, file loading and sequencing. This setup is installed at ‘De Klankspeeltuin’ in Muziekgebouw aan het IJ (Amsterdam) and it is also touring around schools in the Netherlands.

Interactive Stairs

Together with Hessel Stuut I developed two interactive stairs.   The first one was a prototype  for EeStairs and presented during 100 % design 2009 in Eindhoven. It controlled sound and animations on tv screen connected to it. The second one was the ToonTrap which was part of Hessel’s graduation work for the art academy. Of this last one you can view a demo video:

LightPaint

An example of a simple application that invited participants to interact with the projections. To see the joy in the eyes of the people who were having fun with this was the best reward.

SenS: Videosampling Application

Jeroen Hofs (Eboman) performs with a sensor-suit which is used to control a realtime audiovisual sample composition. For this he uses custom made software made with Max/MSP called SenS. It is used for a variety of performances, from corporate presentations to experimental theatre to popmusic festivals. I started working on this project in 2005 during my internship and I continued working on it after graduating in 2008. My main focus is on the sound effects and how the suit controls the audio and video. You can find more about the software here (including some tasty demo reels!).  Currently we are working on the successor which will feature more interaction, smoother graphics and better overall quality…
