Audiovisual technology has returned to spectacle. Artists are armed with new technologies for fusing space and image, sound and sight. What they tend not to have is permanent spaces. And that lack of venues has made audiovisual artists nomadic and provisional, constrained to hastily-provisioned, rectangular, sometimes dim projections. In short, for revolutions to happen, you do need special venues, not just special artists.

Paper, wood, and traditional media aren’t tied to one vendor. They don’t require licenses or agreements. They aren’t, generally speaking, incompatible. If digital art is going to provide artists with the same freedom, it stands to reason that artists working with computation will find ways to make any pixel their medium.

Processing is a good example. It takes some time, but eventually, the understanding dawns upon you: Processing is more a design for how to code, an API, than it is a specific platform. Taken further, heck, it’s more like a way of life – sketch on paper, write simple code, prototype fast, make something happen.

Bluetooth Beats is a physical turntable emulator. With a DJ Hero controller, a Wiimote, OSCulator, and PureData, Bluetooth Beats gives anyone the ability to manipulate and scratch songs like a DJ without the need for expensive, professional equipment.

The purpose of the official DJ Hero game is to reproduce the experience of being an actual DJ. For example, in the game, when a user places their finger on the 'vinyl' and pulls in a certain direction it makes a scratch sound. These actions take place in a controlled environment, with set songs and scratch points, where a user follows prompts provided by the game - scoring points for reproducing the sounds in the game.

Eyebeam Art and Technology Center and The Institute of Play, have collaborated to design three workshops at Quest to Learn, a brand-new NYC public school.

Students will work on topics like video remix, sound design, and the engineering of paper folding. Workshop learning standards include: digital tool use, the process of iterating and prototyping ideas, and critical-thinking and problem-solving. This program is offered to students at Q2L during Early-Release Wednesdays throughout December.

We're getting our iPhones and iPod Touches ready to go for some crazy cool RjDj action on December 5! As part of that SkillShare, we're holding a 1.5 hour Intro. Workshop on Pd for those who want to take part in the SkillShare but are still learning basics of electronic music programming. The only prerequisite for the Workshop is to have done something with Pd or Max/MSP before. If you consider yourself a beginner it would help a lot to run through the Pd audio tutorials before attending.

The introductory workshop will run from 12:00 until 1:30 PM, led by Hans-Christoph Steiner, before the actual SkillShare which starts at 2:00. Here are the full details with a sign-up link for this free event.
