Hi everybody, today I coded this little app that allow to play air guitar solos in real time. Right hand trigger the guitar note & Left hand change the pitch (1 octave). I'm just testing the kinect device right now, but I'm planing to integrate more stuff like this in my audiovisual live set, so more to come :)

About this soundfont :


Created for Abstractmachine's ^3 (“cubed”);
A musical sequencer integrated into a real Rubik’s Cube®.



Like most of my interactive/musical instrument work, I’m working against the idea that a musician has to create music digitally — algorithmically — while sitting behind a laptop.
The listeners should be given some hook to attach them to what the musician is doing: at least a videoprojection if we must generate behind a screen. What are they doing back there, playing iTunes? I’m also poking fun at the over-programmed nature of many of the current electronic tools that pass for high-tech instruments.
For, trying to “program” a Rubik’s Cube, as anyone knows, is not an easy matter. So while one might be freed of the obscur interface (everyone understands a Rubik’s Cube), each permutation screws up permutations on the other faces, making the musical progression a true art to master.

  • VJ-ing compilation from 2005 (+download)


  • Avant tout :

    La vie quotidienne pour le plus grand nombre est remplie par un travail sans joie, qui permet d'assouvir au minimum ses besoins fondamentaux, avec l'espoir pour certains de satisfactions narcissiques, de gratifications matérielles, ou d'exercice de la dominance.

    Dans cette société, basée sur les notions de profit et de nivellement hiérarchique entre individus, l'artiste est, il me semble, un personnage angoissé, par la difficulté de sortir des engrenages de la machine sociale, la difficulté d'agir pour se gratifier, plutôt que de se soumettre au conformisme du système de production, qui pourrait lui assurer l'ascension sociale ou la dominance.

    Un geste automatique (conformiste) sera toujours plus rapide et plus efficace, donc plus productif, et donc mieux récompensé. Ou est la place de l'imaginaire dans notre société ? Dans l'achat d'une nouvelle voiture parait-il.

    PoppBox est une sorte de carnet croquis compilant des recherches formelles, narratives ou esthétiques, datants de 2005. Ne pensez surtout pas y trouver le manifeste de la jeune génération d'artistes-programmeurs, on en est bien loin.

    J'était à la recherche d'une forme d'écriture personnelle, qu'en fait je n'ai toujours pas trouvé.

  • Videogame / Midi interface.


  • Français :

    Runloader est une interface de contrôle midi reservée à de joyeux musiciens bricoleurs qui n' ont pas froid aux yeux. Il a été créé à l'occasion du festival Eniarof 0.1, pour une installation grand-public. Il est plus particulièrement efficace couplé à une boite à rythme ou un séquenceur, cependant il me semble que son utilisation est assez ouverte.
    N' hésitez pas à me contacter pour me faire part de vos opinions, ainsi que me faire écouter ce que vous réussissez à en faire.
    Good Luck.



    English :

    Runloader is a midi interface for happy midi users.
    It was created for Eniarof 1.0 festival in France, basically it was an interactive installation.
    It's works very well with Beatboxes and samplers, but the Runloader is open-mind...
    Write me if it looks nice to you and maybe show me what you can do with it.
    Bonne chance.
