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 […]

365 days of creative coding – day one

I’ve officially started on my year-long journey to coding enlightenment. I am committing myself to 365 days of completing short goals each day to expand on my programming skills. My first project (as I expect most of my projects to be) was created in PureData. It is an interactive Pd patch that uses mouse coordinates to […]

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 […]

11.28.2009 – In C++

Ever wished you could have your own 10-piece ensemble that lived in your house and would play “In C” for you whenever you had the desire? Well, I’ve just completed a project that may make that dream a reality. Well… maybe not reality, but pretty darn close. I’m satisfied that at least one of the […]

06.13.2009 – Motion Tracking

It has been so cool working on motion tracking, but it has not been without its problems. The code has actually been fairly easy and straightforward, but I’ve hit the ceiling of what my RAM can handle. And I’m on a 2GHz MacBook. By the time I’ve captured the video and processed it to recognize […]

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 […]

03.20.2009 – Integrating Python

I’ve been dabbling in the Python programming language for the last several days. I’ve been aware of it in a peripheral sort of way for some time, but somehow never felt inclined to explore its possibilities. I think as I first started programming I developed the notion that the only languages worth anything are those […]
