Hello, my name is Guy and I like generative music and well engineered systems.
I use a combination of Pure Data/MaxMSP and Ableton Live to make my music but I like trying out other things that interest me. Recently I had a look at Iannix which is a really interesting OSC sequencer and I've dabbled with Super Collider.
My studio at home is pretty crammed with synths/samplers/effects and I have a hardware setup centred around a Boss RC50 loop pedal. I like the immediacy of control that you get with hardware compared to software, but it's so much more effort to lug it about. I also like building my own hardware and it was building guitar effects that initially got me more heavily into music. I don't get to do so much of this these days but I'm looking to get involved in projects that will mean I can.
- PureData, Max/MSP, Processing, Super Collider and Arduino for more musically interesting things.
Music Hackspace Projects I'm Interested In
I'd like to Collaborate/Give a hand with...
- Generative music in pretty much any form
- PureData and Max/MSP workshops
- Making audio/controller hardware
My Traditional Instruments
- Guitar (acoustic/electric/bass)
Things that inspire me
- An awful lot of stuff..... This section needs more thought
My blog where I post about audio programming, some of the projects I'm working on and other musings I have. Updates can be a bit sporadic but when I'm doing a patch-a-day month I'll update every day.
Here's where you can find most of the music I create. It all falls somewhere between trip hop, downtempo, dubstep and glitch. I don't really know, I just make it.
This currently points to my bandcamp page. The album on here was done with my coffee table hardware setup and is a mix of industrial harsh noise and dub. I'll stick a picture of the setup here soon.
PatchWerk Radio is a project I created in February of 2011. It's an internet radio station that uses PureData and Python to stream generative music 24/7/365 (except when it crashes occasionally)
Github is where I keep all of the code for my projects. There's a lot of PureData stuff on here as well as some PHP/Python/C++ projects, most of which aren't audio but are pretty interesting. All the code and patches for PatchWerk Radio is on here.
Last year in November I created and wrote about a new PureData patch every day. I'm doing the same this year and you can find all the relevant posts above.
