Color Sensor Sequencer - 1st Test

video by Izhar Ashdot Sound & Vision

"Sensors are such sensitive creatures. They smell, see, hear, feel movement, recognize direction and even differentiate between colors! I chose the TCS-230 color sensor (1.50$ on eBay) to try and create sounds with it and control the synthesizer using color. Preliminary results are promising, here is a bass sequence created in response to a video of alternating colors, receiving external clock from the modular system."

Abstract LoFi IDM (BeatCutter app)

video by Igor Vasiliev

"This track was created using the BeatCutter app (iOS). Eight samples from free libraries were used as source audio material. Samples are completely different both in content and in rhythm. The first sample sets the rhythm and, in addition to processing, passed directly to the output. The initial idea was generated using a random template, then individual parameters were tweaked. Mainly, the trigger parameters have been changed to reduce the triggers activity and make the sound less dense. The sound is recorded directly in the app without additional processing."
