blind date

Year: 
2005
Authors: 
pd~graz
Project Description: 

Blind date is a live coding performance with PD (Pure Data) by the pd~graz collective.
It is realized with 2 computers, one for audio, one for video, and 8 players (= PD programmers).

Two people are programming on the same PD patch and after a certain time a programmer is exchanged and must continue the work on the already existing patch.
An additional referee controls the exchange of the participants and so the result of the performance.
The 2 patches (one video and one audio patch) and the video output are projected, so that the visitors can follow the process of programming.

Project Description: 

project page: meingraz.at

concept

The city of Graz was splitted into 4 social rooms (see picture below).
The composers of the installation are the people of Graz, who can send SMS, MMS and voice mails via their mobile phones to our database.
Inside the installation, the data gets compressed and processed on 4 projections for pictures (MMS) and text (SMS) and 4 speakers for the audio (voice mails) according to the social rooms and time they arrived.
It's also possible to interact with the installation: with calling a specific number all the entries of that specific phone number will be displayed.
During the whole exhibition time the installation is getting more and more dense, because of the increasing number of messages in the database.

technical realization

The installation was realized with 3 computers: 1 for the MySQL and webserver, 2 managed the 4 projections (2 nvidia dualhead cards)
For the installation we used the open source software PD/Gem (Pure Data) on a debian linux system and wrote some stuff in C++ and python.

exhibition

The exhibition run the whole october 2005 at the Kunsthaus Graz and was realized within steirische herbst 2005.

NNie

Year: 
2005
Authors: 
Georg Holzmann
Project Description: 

NNie is a simple instrument for improvised music.
With the help of an artificial neural net it is possible to use a simple, intuitive controller but control a complex, multi-dimensional parameter-space to generate music or video.
Of course you also have to "practice" the instrument, which means the training of the artificial neural net.

A recorded album of improvised music with the NNie instrument can be downloaded below.

PDradio

Year: 
2005
Authors: 
Georg Holzmann
Authors: 
Winfried Ritsch
Project Description: 

ATTENTION: unfortunately the original PDradio-server died and the system is not online anymore !

PD Webradio is a self-regulating internet radio station for the PD-community.
Registered users can upload PD-related music and share them with the community.

Because we didn't want to compile the radio program all the time, we build an automatic radio DJ.
All users can vote for a song they would like to hear and the DJ will generate a playlist according to all votes.

Additionally there is an automatic radio moderator, who speaks a little bit about the songs (metadata which can be uploaded together with the music) and maybe is joking sometimes ...

technical realization

PD-webradio is running on a Linux Server with Zope/Plone.
The audio streaming, speech synthesis, radio-moderator, DJ, ... is implemented in PD and Python for the communication to plone.
For a more detailed documentation see the links below.

If you want to listen to the PDradio, vote for songs or you have music related to PD and want to share it - follow the link above.
