The Paris live coding session last night was great. It showed how the scene is diverse in terms of practiced and styles. It also proved how open-source software can have a very positive impact on creative practices interoperability and is a node connecting different communities. I am very happy I met very talented artists. There is still room for progress: more women would be great for next time! #m
you can clone functions in lua, including upvalues
it didnt work for what i needed, which was the ability to clone coroutines, but might be useful to someone else
livecode.nyc supergroup including doom
of the rock @nasser livecoding with fennel. other livecoding langs tonight include orca, foxdot, hydra and oFx
wow I just spent an hour trying to post a video to birdsite, running every relevant FFmpeg incantation I could find on the internet, every single one of them resulted in a rejected video. what a pile of garbage. worked immediately on Mastodon unsurprisingly. remember kids: centralized platforms are technically as well as morally inferior to open ones.
the non-alpha live version will feature electric cello and vocals by my extremely talented friends who are jamming with my during my first show 😭 🙏
if youre in nyc come through! https://withfriends.co/event/12661166/computer_pop_livecodenyc_algorave
alpha version of tonight's jam!
some of the syntax:
- euc: euclidean rhythms
- ins: set the instrument for every note in the sequence
- fol: follow every note in the sequence
- rot: rotate the sequence
- cat: concatenate sequences
- $>1: schedule this pattern to run once at the end of the current pattern
the patterns alternate track numbers and expressions to mean "put the result of this expression on this track"
tracks of unequal lengths are extended to balance the final pattern!
that said -- i use ffmpeg successfully all the time! my workflow is: google ffmpeg question, immediately find answer, copy paste the unthinkable commands generously shared by a faceless ffmpeg wizard, big success.
i just dont know how i am supposed to do any of this without googling. maybe thats where all the wizards come from 🤔
i've seen key=value arguments, i've seen -dashed unix style arguments, i've seen colons, i've seen equals signs, i think the order you pass the arguments *matters* which makes them less parameters and more... a command language? i have a friend who insists that there is coherence and consistency and even beauty to all of this but i am certain my friend is a liar.
Day 07 of #inktober2021 on my pen plotter!
Got inspired by some of the background art in Paul Kirchner's Dope Rider comics.
This took ages to code and there are still things I'd like to tweak!
You can support work like this by backing my new patreon!
building on a jam session from last night! going to be doing something like this at computer pop tomorrow night except with a prophet 6 synth instead of my trial-version VSTs 😅 #theWorkshop
