Connect the tracker to the polywavsynth by dividing (hard-coded, bad) 1.0 intervals into 20 intervals of 5, mapped to pitch
two versions (or two instruments?) one mapped to x, one mapped to y
map to both?
ask Lane to modify planet
send goldanim to all as example
Update patch pages with better screenshots; add commentary
Add screenshots to tables/arrays tutorial
Make first cut at a tracking patch - DONE
Size and timeout limits for loading media have been increased, but the size of video clips still poses a problem - Dave suggests compressing the clips
To do this we need to specify what format are they in now, and what the target size (both file and image size) will be.
Project 1: Visual Melody
a. single simple object (bird? critter?) will move around the screen;
b. vertical axis = pitches of scale, range? division of screen?
c. horizontal axis = sustain and possibly also modify filter band
d. layered with a constant beat/background
e. NEW! edit Pd patch and consider ways to do note-off for a single legato line
f. NEW! Consider how to get data into the patch
Project 2: Oceanic Squares/texture from brightness
a. ocean video in pixilation, spectrum white-dark blue
b. read brightness of screen using average? or dominant brightness? (i.e. greatest %)
c. lesser % (i.e. contrasting color) could control other parameters?
d. music will be sustained pad with interesting/changing timbre
e. video: increase the contrast and intensity of colors
