Anthony Paul De Ritis: Electroacoustic Music, in memorium: David Wessel

Albany Records has released a new CD by composer Anthony Paul De Ritis: Electroacoustic Music, In memorium: David Wessel

Composer Anthony Paul De Ritis began studying with David Wessel at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies after returning from his studies at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau. Wessel exerted a tremendous influence on De Ritis, both as a teacher and as a person. This recording of De Ritis' music is a tribute to David Wessel.

Jean Bresson: Interactive visual programming systems for music composition

Jean Bresson (IRCAM) was in residence at CNMAT as a Fulbright visiting scholar from Feb. to Aug., 2016, carrying out a research fellowship entitled "Interactive visual programming systems for music composition". The objectives of this project, framed in the development of computer-aided composition software, were to explore multimedia interactions in compositional processes, and integrate CNMAT technology and approaches in the OpenMusic environment.

Standing Wave Audio Feedback Prototype

In an ongoing effort to repurpose old electronics and common waste materials, Ph.D. student Jason Cress, makes use of discarded electronic components, plastic bowls, and particle board in this instrumental prototype. The electronic configuration is based on a generic bullhorn circuit which requires few components and can be easily embedded into a variety of hardware interface designs.

Project

How to choose a Tilt/Acceleration Sensor

Posted by Adrian Freed on March 12, 2009

The majority of acceleration/tilt sensors used these days are single integrated circuits MEMS devices. The cheap ones are made for air bag and other high volume applications. Although the chips are cheap ($5-10 Retail,<$1 in quantity), they are usually sold in surface mount packages that are inconvenient to work with without industrial quality tools.

Fabric Proximity Sensing

Posted by Adrian Freed on November 7, 2008

Most sensing applications of e-textiles use switching, piezoresistivity or optics for direct touch sensing. This instructable shows you how to start exploring another approach - capacitive sensing to measure touch and proximity. It is based on the easy-to-use, cheap capacitance sensing chip evaluation board from Atmel/Qtouch and takes only minutes to create.

RGB Pressure Sensitive Monome

Posted by Jeff Lubow on September 5, 2008

Because of the inherent limitations of visual feedback in a single color LED matrix (Monome), I’m starting work with
Adrian on developing an RGB Monome with pressure sensitivity. For now, I’ll focus on the multiplexing/de-multiplexing
process.
