Bugbrand+pencil in Swedish Radio/WebTV

Post by otoskope » Sun Jun 05, 2011 3:59 pm

Hi all,

Last week I was interviewed by Swedish public radio regarding parts of my research in technology, music and creativity, and I used my gestural pencil interface for the Bugbrand modular (in this topic) as an example, and as a metaphor for the exploration of spaces of musical possibilities.

It's in Swedish, though, but I know there are some Swedish speakers here...and the sounds and the playing are omni-lingual...

There's also a text article to go with it (maybe try google translate on it!), and a radio reportage coming on Tuesday based on the same interview - really multimedia this time.

nice vid. after so many bergman viewings (I'd be fine on a desert island (I sorta almost live on one) with persona, alphaville & blade runner) the swedish language sounds like music. the pencil interface needs to become commercially available as it works so well.

Hi MechaSeb! Check the link in my first post above (the "in this topic" part). There's more on the interface in that thread.

And radams, I'm not sure what you mean - I guess it's my golden tooth!? Maybe you could do a voice-over for my videos in return? :hmm: Or I could do playback to your music? :despair:

And indexofmetals, I would bring a solar panel, a bugbrand and an amp to a desert island (I also almost live on one) - oh yes, and a grand piano. And a Nord Modular + a computer. And my wife (don't tell her about the order I mention things in)... and a barbeque....hmmm, what's the limit on the number of items?
