TSFKAMI, is a musical instrument which creates patches from any sound or music you supply to it.
Specify any directory with music or sounds on your hard drive and the contents will be uploaded to the Echo Nest, which scans each file for short snippets with a pure(ish) pitch. The soundfiles are then chopped up and the desired snippets sorted by musical note and timbre and delivered to the sampler for that velvety smooth sounding goodness.
TSFKAMI then uses the awesome Maximilian (https://github.com/micknoise/Maximilian) library for playing and manipulating the resulting sounds.
It currently exists as a separate Python script and mouse and keyboard controlled openFrameworks app, for audio processing and playback respectively, but will hopefully soon be made available in nicer format for others to enjoy.
A collaborative music game focussing on the phenomenon of how many people, when working together, form a collective 'hive mind'.
Players log on to the game site where each player controls a small paddle at the bottom of the screen while a stream of generative music is streamed from the game server. At the bottom of the screen is also a global paddle, the position of which is determined by the average of all player paddle positions. Balls with different musical functions fall from the top of the screen, and if the global paddle is successfully positioned below the ball when it reaches the bottom, the music will be influenced by that particular function (e.g. bringing an instrument or effect in).
How it works
A generative Pure data music patch runs on a dedicated server system called GRASS (Generative Reactive Audio Streaming Server). GRASS communicates directly with a Node.js server, which controls the game state and logic. In turn, the Node.js server communicates with the players via WebSockets.
A browser-based music sequencer taking input from Soundcloud or microphone (in theory).
Mix and match and repost your result (in theory).
Pick a track from a user generated feed (though there are no users yet), mash with other tracks, and put your own mark on it by adding effects and goats.
