what is soundwidgets.com?
It's a blog where I post cool stuff I find on the web. I try to post projects which more or less relate to the above topics. Sometimes I just post random stuff.
This also acts as an informal project blog for a music control device I'm designing and building called the Stribe.
I also occasionally post clips and info relating to experimental electronic music I make under the name phineus.
Latest tracks by phineus do you sell stuff?
Actually, yes! You can support The Stribe Project by buying kits from CuriousInventor.com, or by buying Stribe.org T-Shirts or paticipating on the Stribe Project Forum.
You can support Phineus by ordering the Compleat Works of Phineus on USB hard-drive for $25 including shipping. Send e-mail to order. what does "stribe" mean?
It means "stripe" or "striped cloth" in Danish.
"Input device from a matrix of IR beams set in a square. Fed into a Macintosh through a create HID interface. Processed with custom software written in Objective C and Quartz composer and fed to an MU10."
Mike Cook, in the UK, made a device similar to my Sound Square project (ca 1993), but smaller, and he went much farther with the software. Interestingly, he built it around the same time period (1994). At the time, a grid of sensors seemed like such a powerful meme to me that I assumed this type of music tech would be everywhere in no time. The fact that it HASN'T seemed to progress very far in 15 yrs was what put me on the path that eventually led to the Stribe. Well, 15 years later it seems Mike has dusted off his project as well! He has a great website and a page dedicated to the how-to of it all. Yay Mike!! Can't wait to see what comes next!
