28April2010 MonoFire. A simple MaxforLive control using the Monome 64

MonoFire is a simple patch I made for MaxForLive (M4L), that enables a Monome 64 to fire clips stored in the Ableton Live project. In includes volumecontrol and showing the Vue-meter on the Monome.

Download it here: http://github.com/materialvision/MonoFire

The basic idea is to have a simple clip-player that can play upto 7 clips simultaniously per Live Scene. It is made to be as simple and quick to set up as possible (typically at the airport before the gig).

See instructions in the readme file.

Thanks to James Drake for the great Monomebutton and -slider and -pages patches used in this project.


14April2011 Radio Arc

Radio Arc from Material Vision on Vimeo.

I received my Arc today. After unboxing, I updated an old patch I had lying around to be controlled by it. The patch mimics a long-wave radio, and the "stations" I tune into are soundfiles lying on my desktop. It was actually originally made to be controlled by the Griffin Powermate knob. But this upgrade to Arc gives me much better control through high resolution and visual feedback. One knob is for tuning in larger/coarser steps and the other for fine tuning into the stations spread around the Arc.


14September2011 the Movement I-V now available in appstore

The Movement I-V is an iPad app that explores the various possible movements of the hand and the fingers in sound manipulation. Included are a set of sounds by me (some of them are used on the upcoming Alog album, set for release in early November. The album use this app as one sound source). You can also upload your own samples in .wav or .aif format through iTunes. 

Here is a link to the app page on iTunes

The development of the Movement I-V was supported by Arts Council Norway and BEK, Bergen center for electronic art
