More Processing doings…

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

I’ve abandoned my attempts to create my own set of generic controllers in Processing using the monomic library – for now at least – but only because I’m going to try and use Nick Rothwell’s shado instead. And since Nick’s considering porting shado as a Processing library this makes even more sense to me…


But I am going to recycle some of my work to date to try and create a simple but controllable 3D visualisation of the monome 64 using Processing – including accelerometer data if I can manage it – for the Monome meets 3D-AudioScape application I’m now developing with Nick under the monomatic umbrella.


Processing and Flash Demos…

Monday, April 6th, 2009

I’ve developed my Processing Light Wave virtual sketch up to a point where I’m ready to share it and get some feedback… so I’ve signed up and posted to OpenProcessing – “a ‘flickr’ish place for processing community to share their sketches, comment on each other’s pieces, etc…”

I also spent some time rummaging though my ‘creative’ file archive and found some rough demos that deserve to see the light of day… – disco_flakes_lewis_6.swf

I got up a version 6 of my adaptation of Robert Penner’s Disco Flakes which I first posted a couple of years ago in Experiments in Flash I… and though I typically failed to follow my own development plan and went off at a tangent I like my attempts to create different shaped boundaries and see the reflection patterns that emerge…

Click on the image to load Flash in a pop up. Move the mouse to the right to contract/speed up and to the left to expand/slow down the oscillations. Click the ‘shape’ icons (bottom right) to change the bounding shape of the reflections or the ‘reload’ icon to start again.
