Software Studies for Media Designers: HTML5 and JavaScript course and tutorials

Since 2010, I’ve been teaching Software Studies for Media Designers course at Media Lab, with Markku Reunanen. From 2011, my focus has been on HTML5 Canvas with JavaScript, and Markku has been teaching Processing. The objective of this course is to teach the basics of programming to an audience of designers and artists.

If you’re interested in HTML5 and JS in particular, you can check out my tutorials here (updated in 2012): http://webmediadev.wordpress.com/

AVVX – Proposal

The workshop intends to bring awareness to the interconnections between the different senses, namely between sight and hearing. Specially developed software, free and open-source, will be used (www.avvx.org). The software analyses audio in real-time, and manipulates visuals according to that analysis.

Participants will develop the visuals during the workshop, and will propose sounds to be used together with those visuals. The visuals are built using static 2D graphics, using any vector graphics software (for example, Adobe Illustrator). Participants should bring their computers and vector graphics software.

There will be a final performance, combining and sonic and visual outcomes of the workshop, via the special software.

The proposed duration of the workshop is of 3 days (approximately 20 hours in total). It can be organized in 3-5 days. For example:

  • Day 1: lecture about visual music and synesthesia; demonstration of the software with pre-prepared sound and visuals.
  • Day 2: development of visuals by participants; proposal of sonic material.
  • Day 3: integration of sound, visuals and software; final performance.

Technical notes:

  • The visuals will consist of 2D vector graphics. I will assist in the production of these graphics, and suggest software for its production or digitization / conversion.
  • One or multiple projections can be used. For each projection, a computer and a projector will be needed.
  • A sound system (amplifier/microphone/speakers/cables/adaptors) will be needed for sound. In the case of multiple computers, a mixer will be needed as well.

2012/06 AVVX Visual Music Workshop @ Marmelada 2 / Independent Biennial, Ljubljana

The 3 day “AVVX – Visual Music with Vector Graphics” workshop took place at Marmelada 2 / Independent Biennial in Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 2012. We discussed visual music; participants were introduced to the AVVX app; and prepared audio and visuals for the software. They played with the code, and explored other software. On the 3rd day (4/June), we had a showcase @ Kino Siska, Ljubljana. Eight days later (12/June), we had another showcase @ Krizanke, an old monastery in the center of Ljubljana, as part of the UF! Festival.

The following video collects several lo-fi recordings captured at the first showcase, and reflects a large variety of music and visual styles:

The next video focuses on the second showcase, with several interviews:
