Dendriet is a network of musicians in The Hague (.nl) that perform with networked electronic and acoustic instruments. The word dendriet, or dendrite, is also the name for the receptors of a nervecell. Dendrites are typically branching branches. You'll find these fractal shapes in ice, in metal chrystals in limestone, and likewise, in our performance setups. Please do check out our homepage by clicking the stone. You too are invited to join the discussions.
So I decided to program it for Supercollider myself. Download it here.
Toy Control, @ Dok-A, Tilburg, july 19 2004. 31 minutes, @192kbs, 42 MB.
While I was at it, I continued mastering the Paradiso recording as well. (Note how different the Paradiso's Midas mixing console sounds from the Behringer on the Dok-A ship.) The recording was missing the opening movement due to a minidisk failure, so I added that from a rehearsal recording.
Toy Control, @ Paradiso, Amsterdam, may 17 2004. 17 minutes, @192kbs, 24 MB.
And here's the first occasion:
Toy Control, @ White Space, The Hague, spring 2003. 17 minutes, @192kbs, 25 MB.
Toy Control will perform on the Dok-A ship again, when it is in Den Bosch, during the Boulevard Festival. This will be around the 12th of August.
The drone sound was very rough, too rough. I had anticipated some rough/noise quality because I was using ringmodulation (how cliché!) and because this patch was based on an analog studio project from the BEA5 studio at sonology, I had some idea on it's soundquality.
It turned out there was some way supposedly indepent signal streams were influencing each other! Commenting out the lines of code controlling/constructing the Y-input of the ringmodulation resulted in less rough sounds from the X-input-signal before it was going into the ringmodulation.
Very analog of supercollider, but not as subtle as I had planned my drone sound to be....
I looked up how the dutch law is in this respect. It's the same.
As the tape recorder became commercially available in 1948, allready six years worth of old masters of electronic music have fallen into the sample pool of the public domain. Stockhausen will enter the pool in 2008. Meanwhile, we'll suffer a rock & roll overkill.
Guess we need categories like the experimental blogger tool xs4all has.
2. We could pay more to xs4all and
- start running our 'own' php/mysql weblog tool, like harold's.
- Or we could still start using the xs4all tool...
- run a php-bittorrent tracker
3. Or we could go for a Mac Based server, which opens up al lot more possibilities:
- php/mysql weblog tool
- run a php-bittorrent tracker
- OSC: run a maxpatch that allows to share controller data
- OSC: run supercollider for that matter
- OSC: broadcast a continious flow of controller data that you can hook up to you msp patch
What more mac specific uses do you see in you mind? Think of a G5 that has a wide connection to the internet, with a fair amount of traffic. Think of a tool that would fit the dendriet concept.
This discussion is also open for outsiders. Let us know what you think.
