Carbon Composition (first public viewing)

                  Due to a busy period in university over the past couple of months I’ve not had much time to update this blog, however things have been progressing well and a few days ago I finally installed my Carbon Composition project in a public space!! The project […]

Updates…coming soon!!

  I’m currently collating all of my university work for this semester (haven’t had much time to update this blog), although have lots of updates waiting to be added to this page very shortly! The CarbonCompositon standalone application (for Mac/PC formats) is being finalised and will be made available shortly through the website www.carboncomposition.co.uk shown […]

Project Update November 21st 2010

Max/Msp standalone app (update Nov 21st 2010) from Guy Evans on Vimeo. Update Nov.21st 2010 The video above shows the final stages of my standalone max/msp application, using Pachube (electricity consumption) data to control audible sinewaves. As you can see in the video, i’ve now reverted back to the previous map display which adds much […]

Project Update November 19th 2010

Yet another update. I spent the morning replacing the previous map with this newer version. Hopefully, this new darker map helps to show the LED points on the map in more detail (Public Domain map courtesy of Nasa: LINK) The previous versions showed different map displays (more recently using a different public domain map from […]

Max/Msp Standalone Application – Project Update (November 18th 2010)

(Click image to view full screen) Update (Nov 18th 2010) Spent much of the day rebuilding my Max/Msp standalone application, after trying out various new ideas on how the interface should look. The previous versions were originally designed for a gallery installation planned for 2011 (consisting of a large printed map with RGB leds) although, […]

Max/Msp Standalone Application (Video)

Recent video detailing my current university project (using data provided by Pachube.com and Current Cost). The project converts real-time energy consumption data from various locations around the globe and converts this data (from watts to hertz) to generate audible sine-waves.

Parsing XML Data directly into Max/Msp

(This post has since been updated, click HERE to view the updated max/msp patch) Had quite a busy and stressful week, working very long hours each day trying to parse XML data from Pachube directly into Max/Msp. I had some feedback from my tutors last week and came to the decision of trying to make […]

RGB LED Update

Had a bit of a major breakthrough earlier today, with regards to using my RGB LED’s for my project. I had previously thought that i would need 3 channels of PWM to light each RGB LED, but luckily….as i only need to use the RED and GREEN outputs for my project (to fade from green […]

RGB LED

(October 19th 2010) I got my delivery of RGB LED’s earlier (from www.oomlout.co.uk) and have spent the evening trying to find a way of implementing them into my Max/Msp patch. I had previously used processing to light regular LED’s, but the RGB LED’s were a bit more tricky to control from Max. I used Maxuino […]
