InProcess:ing v1.3
an open forum for sharing creative coding and
practice
a scheme by Madlab and Cybersonica

Thursday, 20th May 7-10pm
(and third Thursday – or thereabouts – of the month thereafter)
Madlab (Manchester Digital Laboratory)
36-40 Edge Street, Manchester M4 1HN
(Between Thomas St and the Craft Centre, opposite A Bar Called Common)
madlab.org.uk
inprocessing.cybersonica.org

Telematic presentation by Delft based architect Yiannis
Chatzikonstantinou - exploring designs via computational tools;
‘In-the-flesh’ presentation by Liverpool based digital ‘videosmith’ Sam
Meech;
Informal ‘show-and-tell’ and ‘open-laptop’ sessions (go on... bring some
of your own work along).

InProcess:ing focuses on the Processing
language, environment and community (though not exclusively) as a
vehicle to support and encourage creative collaboration and meaningful
exchange between a diverse group of practitioners, creatives and
hobbyists. It aims to create a playful, experimental space and a
supportive framework in which people can share their work, realise new
technological ideas, be inspired, challenged and stretched.


Join us at the next session to see Processing in action, meet other
interested and like-minded people and find out more about the project
and how to get involved;

Visit the InProcess:ing website to catch up
with developments and future plans, watch past presentations and follow
up on interesting links;
Join the forum and share your favourite Processing sketches, suggest
practitioners/work for future presentations, offer useful techniques and
online resources and tell us what you’d like to see from the project.

Variable4

Daniel Jones / James Bulley

Headland of Dungeness, a
designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to its unique
and diverse wildlife, Dungeness, Kent, TN29 9ND 

Midday May 22nd to midday May 23rd 2010

http://www.variable4.org.uk/visit/

Variable 4 transforms weather patterns into a living musical
composition with the same unpredictability as the elements themselves.
Using meteorological sensors connected to a custom software environment
developed by the artists, the wild weather conditions of the Kent
coastland act as composer, navigating through a map of 24 specifically
written movements. Every aspect of the piece, from broad harmonic
progressions down to individual notes and timbres, is influenced by
changes in the environment: wind speed, rainfall, solar radiation,
humidity, tropospheric variance, temperature, and more.


Linking together the sensor data and scored motifs is an array of
algorithmic processes drawn from the natural world, modelling phenomena
such as tree growth, swarm theory and evolutionary development. The
resultant composition is performed over a 24 hour duration through a
field of 8 speakers integrated into the landscape.

Variable 4 is made possible thanks to generous
funding from the PRS for
Music Foundation
, and support from a number of independent sponsors
including Campbell Scientific,
Max For Live, KEF and the Dungeness RNLI
