Fish, Theater, and Music

I found a series of papers that I was able to find in the literature from reading a paper in the art-science journal Leonardo yesterday.  The paper talked about using computer vision and computer music to make music controlled by the motions of a fish.  I did some research and found that the programming environment that was used for the work was the MAX/MSP programming environment.  I am going to work on learning this software package.  I will try to get all of my poems into my computer with either spoken voice or computer text to speech and then put the words to music.  I was thinking of trying to incorporate the fish music into a play about the War on Terror.  I will write more about this soon…

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
