  3. Echo Nest Remix is the Internet Synthesizer. Make amazing things from music, automatically.

    Turn any music or video into Python or JavaScript code.

    Echo Nest Remix lets you remix, re-edit, and reimagine any piece of music and video, automatically and algorithmically.

    Remix has done the following: played a song forever, walkenized and cowbellized hundreds of thousands of songs in a week, reversed basically everything, beat matched two songs, split apart DJ mixes by their individual tracks, made new kinds of video mashups, corrected sloppy drumming, synced video to a song, transitioned between multiple covers of the same song, made a cat play piano, and taught dogs to play dubstep. Check out all the examples here.

    Remix is available as an open source SDK for you to use, for Mac, Linux, and Windows:

    Install for Python: sudo pip install remix. Full installation details, packages for Mac and Windows, and complete Python documentation are here.

    Try JavaScript: Test out remix.js here.

    Download JavaScript: remix.js. Full JavaScript install details and documentation are here.

  4. [ About Re:Sound Bottle -second mix- ]
    Experimental sound medium that transforms recorded everyday sounds into music

    [ Concept ]
    • Allows anyone to create music using sounds from daily life
    • Communication that arises from intuitive sound interaction

    The conventional way of experiencing music is usually through existing technologies such as the ipod or the radio. However, this style of experiencing music takes place in a given form; is static and as a result leaves us dissatisfied.

    To really enjoy music, we need to find music through sounds around us. We need to stop being tied down with new gadgets that provide the music for us, but to search for music ourselves.

    A series of ideas like these lead me to create this device.

    This creation's main concept is to record sounds from daily life. It is the concept of ‘collecting sounds in a bottle’. You choose the sounds collected in the bottle. Using everyday sounds as a musical component establishes a new understanding of the sounds we listen to everyday. By collecting your own sampling of sounds, you encounter a unique piece of music that can be experienced only once.

    This device will bring a smile to anyone, as many will be able to experience the charm of music, leading them to turn music into something they love and adore.

  5. Zimoun

    Sound Architectures, Sculptures & Installations
    Compilation Video V.3.1 / June 02, 2013

    Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying an emotional depth, the acoustic hum of natural phenomena in Zimoun's minimalist constructions effortlessly reverberates.

  6. This is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1211 genres by The Echo Nest. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.

  8. A floating orb that explores and manipulates transitional public spaces with particular acoustic properties. By recording and replaying these ambient sounds, the hovering sphere produces a delayed echo of human activity.

    Electronics were programmed and inserted into the sphere in order to record and replay the surrounding sounds. Find out more: bit.ly/1cjvquk

    A collaboration between Julinka Ebhardt, Francesco Tacchini and Will Yates-Johnson from the Royal College of Art.

  9. Born in 1982. His works, centralising in real-time processed, computer programmed audio visual installations, have been shown at national and international art exhibitions as well as the Media Art Festivals. He is a recipient of many awards including the Excellence Prize at the Japan Media Art Festival in 2004, and the Award of Distinction at Prix Ars Electronica in 2008.

  10. SuperCollider is an environment and programming language for real time audio synthesis and algorithmic composition. It provides an interpreted object-oriented language which functions as a network client to a state of the art, realtime sound synthesis server.

    SuperCollider was written by James McCartney over a period of many years, and is now an open source (GPL) project maintained and developed by various people. It is used by musiciansscientists, and artists working with sound. For some background, see SuperCollider described by Wikipedia.

  11. PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. Simple and fun, cross-platform application with unlimited potential for creativity! It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver. Transmitter converts the video (static 64x64 image or 10FPS animation) to sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). This lets you listen to the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices. Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file.

  12. Inspired by the roads previously paved by concrète musicians and theorists, but also heavily influenced by the worlds of performance art, punk rock and no wave, Christian Marclay was probably the first musician to steal the plunder from the academic domain and to consistently work on the possibilities of disarranging previously ordered sonic artefacts. Long before being a d.j. meant anything more than someone putting one record after the other to make people dance (which is still what it means today), Marclay was exploring old vinyl collections, scratching vinyl in ways unthought of by Bambaataa, destroying needles against turntables and breaking up records in order to discover what lies beneath the groove. In this fairly conventional documentary, Luc Peter offers us a short portrait of Marclay's activities in more recent years, at a time when he's been elevated to avant-stardom by a society reasonably accustomed to the ideas of a musician using ready-made sources or of someone commanding people's respect behind the decks. Marclay briefly discusses his background, methods and artistic purposes, together with considerations on the turntable/record as an instrument or its place in improvisation and pop music.

  14. http://www.cinexcellence.com/2011/05/complete-list-of-wilhelm-screams/

    is a popular stock scream used in countless films, tv shows, and video games. It was recorded in 1951 for Distant Drums, but found it's infamy when sound magician Ben Burtt snuck it into the films he was working on, especially Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

    This video is a (pretty) complete collection of the films that The Wilhelm Scream has been in.

    Note: There are different takes of the Wilhelm Scream from the original recording. The most popular version is take 4, but you will hear other versions as well.
