Culture is the condition that excludes a mentality capable of measuring it.

Video screening program at 3,14

Still from There was a dream… by Sara Rajaei.

 

This weekend Stiftelsen 3,14 offers a four day video screening program with works by Sara Rajaei, Cynthia Marcelle, Elena Kovylina and Eva Ljosvoll. All four artists have exhibited previously at 3,14, and this is an opportunity to see more of their more recent works.

Three of the works are world premieres; Égalité Bergen by Elena Kovylina, based on a performance at Festplassen in Bergen December 6 last year, Ikke alle dørene er lukket by Eva Ljosvoll, and there was the dream and there was a memory connected with it by Sara Rajaei.

In addition three works by Cinthia Marcelle are presented; 475 Volver, ao plano and O século, and one additional work by Sara Rajaei; 1978 the 231st day.

I have co-curated the two works by Sara Rajaei for this exhibition. Yesterday I also helped Eva setting up a Mac for the screening of her work. Based on what I’ve seen so far, it is well worth taking the trip to 3,14 over the next few days.

AppleScript for fullscreen video in QuickTime 10

When God invented programming, the devil came up with AppleScript.

I have just been setting up two macs to play QuickTime movies fullscreen for an exhibition opening tonight at 3,14. I am using AppleScripts to ensure that video playback starts once the computer is booted, and that video plays back in fullscreen with looping.

The AppleScript I blogged some years ago works just fine on one of the Macs, but on the other one the movie refuses to loop and go fullscreen. This is with the same script, and same version of QuickTime.

Having googled around for quite a while, trying different variations on AppleScript syntaxes for QT 7 and QT 10, I finally found the scripts that bijazzard has posted to GitHub. His script for QT 7 is the exact same as mine, but his script for QT 10 saved the day.

I’ve uploaded the script here in order to make sure I have it for the next rainy day.

Setting up a Reaper project for ambisonics

Over the past few weeks I have received several questions regarding how to set up a Reaper project to work with first order ambisonic using the ATK for Reaper plugins.

I have just uploaded a screencast that I hope will help explaining this.

Sending OSC from iOS app to Max

This is probably trivial to more seasoned C++ developers then me, but I just managed to set up OSC communication from an iOS app to Max. The iOS app uses Cocos2D and the oscpack library by Ross Bencina.

This is an important first step towards being able to prototype sound design for an iOS game that Stian Remvik is currently developing.

It also gives me some ideas about the next steps forward in order to be able to use the JamomaCore C++ libraries for DSP processing with OpenFrameworks and iOS apps.
