Another little forester 2 video

Friday, July 2nd, 2010 | Building Things, Forester, Max/MSP, video | No Comments

Been super busy here for the last few weeks – I’m making not one but two albums dont you know…. More about them later. For now here is a little video of me testing the currents in Forester 2. Don’t have time to annotate the video I’m afraid, but im basically changing 4 parameters of the current using a midi controller – yes forester 2 will be easily midi controllable. How fast the sound ball thingies move depends on their size and the strength of the current.

Forester 2 is getting closer to release.

I’ve finally had chance to work more on Forester 2. You can see my progress in the video below. I decided to ditch the 2D forest in favor of a 3 dimensional ocean. The idea is that you’ll be able to drop sound-files directly into the interface which will then be carried around the environment by the oceanic currents.

The software came from an idea i had tried out in processing (look) and later implemented in Max/MSP/Jitter.

In line with my growing philosophy of keeping choice and expectations down and being happily surprised with the results you will have very little control over what happens to your sounds. I plan to implement limited control over the the nature and directions of the currents but as in life you’ll pretty much have to let nature run its course.

I recommend watching the following in full screen 720 HD mode if you can.

Take care,

Leafcutter John.
