Audio-visualization of emotions – short assignment

Prepare a short video (around 30s-1m) audio-visualising two of the basic emotions identified by Dr. Paul Ekman (ideally a transition of one to the other), as presented by Sasa Kerkos.

The video should use as its starting point the previous assignment by Sasa Kerkos (emotion visualisation). Take care in combining audio and image, and aim to create added value as defined by Michel Chion.

The video and its sound can be made with original material or reusing material by others. Link to free media resources on the web: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Free_media_resources

2013/05 Coaching at AppCampus Finland

On 23/5/2013, I participated in the AppCampus initiative, as a coach. From www.appcampus.fi: “AppCampus is an €18 million joint project of Aalto University, Microsoft and Nokia. We offer financing and coaching in mobile technology, design and usability to Windows Phone developers.”

I coached 4 teams, 2 hour sessions for each. The teams were mostly developing music related apps. The coaching was done together with Gokce Taskan, who I have collaborated in different projects in the past. We gave the teams advice regarding interaction design and user experience.

Updated September 2013: I coached a second wave of AppCampus teams in September 2013, in a longer coaching process (5, 12 and 19 September).

The 2 day “AVVX – Visual Music with Vector Graphics” workshop took place at Aalto FabLab, Helsinki, as part of the CCLV – Creative Coding for Live Visuals event – organised by PixelAche/AAVE Festival, 10-11 April 2013.

As per suggestion of the organisers, the sound source for the visualisations would come from one single musician/group. I proposed music by my project Baltic Diving Co (SoundCloud link), with Joel Tammik.

On the 3rd day, 13/April, we had a final performance at Sandro Bar, Helsinki.

AVVX app (free, open source) available at www.avvx.org.

Thank you to course participants, AAVE and PixelAche (in particular Irina Spicaka).
