This Über cool free midi sequencer is made by SF local and robotspeak friend Bret Truschan. It was Built using Processing, an open source programming environment. Needless to say Glitch Sequencer is a winner! Its a great app to get the creative juices flowing and lately I can't seem to set it down. Check it out! Now featuring OSC in and out!
*Excerpt from glitch-sequencer*
New!! Version 2.0 Beta. New features:
"Glitch Sequencer is a free cellular automaton based MIDI sequencer for the PC and Mac. It offers an interesting style of composition based on evolving patterns and is great for fast, fluid experimentation. Glitch Sequencer was written by Bret Truchan in Processing using themidibus MIDI library. "
Go get it NOW! and if you feel so inclined kick down a donation for Bret's awesome work!
*The Following is an excerpt from David Merrill's website*
Imagine overturning a container of nuts and bolts, then looking through the resulting pile for a particular item. Or spreading photographs out on a tabletop and then beginning to sort them into piles. During these activities we interact with large numbers of small objects at the same time, and they utilize all of our fingers and both hands together. We humans are skilled at using our hands in these ways, and can effortlessly sift and sort - focusing on our higher level goals rather than the items themselves.
Siftables aims to enable people to interact with information and media in physical, natural ways that approach interactions with physical objects in our everyday lives. As an interaction platform, Siftables applies technology and methodology from wireless sensor networks to tangible user interfaces. Siftables are independent, compact devices with sensing, graphical display, and wireless communication capabilities. They can be physically manipulated as a group to interact with digital information and media. Siftables can be used to implement any number of gestural interaction languages and HCI applications.
