I have now made the first mock-up of the Tree Project – using four orbs, installed on a small indoor tree.
As this piece will be audio focused, all the electronics are coded within Pure Data (using Firmata to communicate to the micro controller) instead of using the Arduino platform.
Each orb is set to pulse light [...]
The Tree Project will be developed for a specific site – JJ Byrne Park in Park Slope, Brooklyn. As part of a single night music festival, that Ari Joseph is organising this April.
Multiple ‘orbs’ will be suspended in a few trees in the park – each with a pulsating LED inside. Visitors will be handed [...]
We started looking at ways to store data within PD – using the following methods:
storing numeric data in arrays
visual representation of that data
read, write, modify methods
arrays as audio, controlled by line~
I created a patch, called ‘Tibet’, using an array to playback a few samples that are chosen at random.

For my midterm project I would like to make a Joseph Cornell type box, that is ‘narrated’.
Interaction with the box will trigger various sequences, sound effects, and pieces of narration.
I am not yet sure what the imagery or story will be, but for now please see below some of Joseph Cornell’s pieces that resonate most [...]
Sensor data – such as the mouse (location and button press) and the computer keyboard – can be used to control Dataflow patches. Allowing for live interaction.
To demonstrate this, I have created a patch that asks for the participants response to the processing sketch below. Watching the cars drive by on Waverly Street, you need [...]
Looking at creating more complex sequences in Pure Data, we started using elements such as random and select.
Below is an example of a ‘patch’ we created in class.
To further explore the potential of random sequencing I created a patch using spliced elements from the Little Red Riding Hood story and made them play back in [...]
Below is a link to my first Pure Data Patch/Program.
It picks anything up from the computer’s inbuilt microphone, and runs it through an oscillator. The oscillator frequency and pitch can be manually adjusted via a slider, and reset with a toggle.
