Gastropod

I felt in love with snails (gastropods). They don’t ask much… I play music for them, look at their golden-ratio shell, feed them salads and sometimes even fruits. They can live 10 years or more. I wish to make a volume 2 when they will be older.

Boîte à oiseaux

La Boîte à oiseaux is a combination of 3 projects:

It’s a media center built in an amplified box with speech recognition capabilities. La boîte can understand as many languages as Kiku offers (currently English, Japanese, German & Portuguese) and since Kiku works offline, there’s no need to be connected to the internet.

strumio

a custom built actuated guitar controlled by pure data. 3 micro servo are strumming the strings and pure data take care of the global pitch shifting. the humbucker is really far from the bridge to avoid getting noise from the magnetic field (there’s still some). included is a relay to turn on high voltage stuff (a light, a disco ball and whatnot).

i think i made this project to showcase puredata fx capabilities, for this i had to make it controllable from the internet (streaming webcam / audio on pdpatchrepo). finally there’s a chatbot (alice) / tts when only one person is connected to the stream.

i don’t think it is useful without the actuated guitar, but here’s the patch:

pure data patch repository

pdpatchrepo
http://www.pdpatchrepo.info/

Pure Data have a repository for abstractions and externals, but not for patches. Not anymore, I took the time to code one. There’s multiple ways of searching a patch: by platforms, tags (adc~, notein), is audio, is video, is generative…

The site also feature a live stream (video & audio) with networked gui so that multiple visitors can interact with the streaming patch. Of course there’s a latency in the feed when playing with the knobs (betweeen 3-5 seconds) but it is still a fun way to jam with others. The bandwidth is provided by the Institute of Electronic Music and Acoustics.
