Digital Music Stand – Raspberry Pi + Touchscreen

I started working on this when I realized how much loose paper I have around the house thanks to IMSLP. Unlimited access to any and all out-of-copyright scores has a way of doing that, I guess. So I started thinking about it and came to the conclusion that there’s no reason I couldn’t just throw […]

365 days – the first three weeks

[For a daily gallery of the action, head over to http://aaronfryklund.com/365/] Howdy, folks! Still trucking along over here on my 365 days (as well as a few real-life gigs, which I am being very careful not to get behind on). I’ve got a few highlights I wanted to post here from the last week and a half. […]

365 days – the first week in review

Happy to report I haven’t missed a day yet! I did catch a cold for a few days that nearly threw me off track, but, thankfully, no harm done. And I know what you’re thinking – yes, I live in Dallas. Let the Ebola jokes commence. So far I’ve tried to keep it fairly simple […]

Puredata piece/toy – Solar Windstorm

I had some fun with Pd while I was on vacation over the summer. I decided to challenge myself to see if I could make an interesting piece using just a single oscillator and a delay line. The result was this fun little piece: You play it using the arrow keys on the keyboard. I […]

Giving PureData a fresh coat of paint

PureData – which is a program you should be familiar with if you’ve read a few of my blog posts – comes in two varieties. There is a “vanilla” version which is the one directly from the desk of Miller Puckette. Then there is Pd-extended, which contains a continuously updated collection of all of the […]

01.27.2010 – iPad

Say what you will about Apple’s new touch-pad computer, the iPad, but consider for a moment the amazing possibilities for interactive musical applications. Anything from practical control surfaces such as mixer-boards or piano-style input to conceptual instruments and interfaces that utilize the accelerometers and multitouch technology in astounding ways. My head is just full of […]

12.24.2009 – A PureData Christmas

So, this is what I was working on last night as I drifted off to sleep. Some will dream of gumdrops and candycanes. I dream of object boxes and midi connections. I wanted to apply myself to a gift I knew teh internets would appreciate. What better way to say Happy Holidays than with a […]

06.01.2009 – Incandescence: New Minimalist Piece

Incandescence [mp3 – 11.9 Mb] I just created a piece using my new motion-tracker prototype. The interesting part, though, is that I didn’t use my tracking gloves, but rather an incandescent lamp. In order to facilitate the tracking, I have to limit the color range of the input. While it does work to highlight the […]

05.25.2009 – Hot Off the Soldering Iron!

You know, years ago when my Dad taught me how to solder some wires together to give my pinewood derby car LED headlights, I never thought that it would be a skill I would use again. Or that if I did that I would actually remember how to do it. Yet here I am; I’ve […]

04.18.2009 – Trouble in Electroacoustic Paradise

Frustrations have abounded lately for certain threads of my electroacoustic endeavors. The good news is that anytime I return to Pd, I feel right at home and my frustrations are put to rest. But I have for some time now sought methods by which I might explore creating electroacoustic music through environments that are not […]
