8 bit kick drum running on an arduino. Sample playback, resonant lowpass filter, cutoff and pitch knobs, velocity, piezo trigger. No computer involved, all code running on a standard arduino thanks to the mozzi project.
My proposal for Bristols Temple Quarter Gateway Project has been shortlisted, click the image above for details.
Animatronic Inflatable Tentacles
These where a collaboration with Filthy Luker, I built the computer controlled motors, actuation system and software. This was a commission for Nuit Blanche Metz November 2012
Converted my digital amped ghettoblaster to Android touch screen today, should get 12hrs use at full volume with a 3Ah battery
Raspberry PI with Puredata, Arduino and sensor array
Click on the image to see the Video!
This a test rig for an installation I’m planning. It comprises of a Raspberry PI running Raspbian and Pd-Extended. This is connected to an array of 6 proximity sensors via an Arduino with the Firmata firmware.
The Puredata patch allows you to chose or create scales, select tempo, note ranges and transposition. Sound is produced by 6 channels of Karplus Strong string models with delay. The built in RPI sound output is used.
The Raspberry is oveclocked to 1ghz, CPU usage is around 75%.
REALITY SHEILD EP OUT NOW!!

Filthy Luker and Under Pressure Art invade Manchester city centre
This is a huge (60ft high) interactive art installation built by us for Red Stripes “Make with” project. I designed the lights, and interactive software for the piece.
The system uses an An Intel Atom based PC running Puredata. The patch was developed in record time and encountered many issues along the way namely how to produce the 130 channels of DMX lighting information with software designed for audio/video.
