creative coding

This page features my work in the field of creative coding.

The vvvv group kindly asked me to create a new website for their ever growing community of VJs and visual artists. The website comes complete with a tagged forum, a shop for licenses, a nice map of the users, a market place where users can share bits of code and a bunch of other useful things.

The interactive installation leuchttur.Modular was created by the Augsburg based multimedia artists Lab Binaer. I made the magic work with the help of c++ and open frameworks and also contributed some conceptual and graphical input.

BRIQ is a combination of soft- and hardware designed to be used to develop complex digital instruments. The user is able to assemble a hardware interface tailored to his needs, which he then can program with a node-based computer language similar to products such as NI Reaktor, Max MSP or PD.

BRIQ is the diploma thesis of Benedikt Steinle. I developed a software prototype of the node-based computer language in flash, using the new sound API of Flashplayer 10 to actually be able to synthesize sound in flash.

We were planning to release an alpha version to the public at some point, but we're to busy doing other things at the moment, so here is a video for you to see how it works.
