Komponieren bedeutet, Ohren auszudrucken

To create an ear, the printer lays down a pliable, porous scaffold made of hydrogel, a kind of polymer. The scaffold is covered with skin cells and cartilage cells, which grow and fill in the ear-shaped form. The hydrogel eventually biodegrades; after about six months the ear is composed entirely of human cells. “We use the patient’s own cells,” says Anthony Atala, director of Wake Forest University’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine. That way the organs won’t be rejected.

Portraits aus einer einzigen Linie

Von S. Stoppel

Almost one year ago I started working on drawing algorithms soon after that I opened an experimental design studio LinesLab that explores algorithmic art and robotics.
After about 9 months I finished a system that is capable of drawing in many different styles and allows to create a completely new style within a couple of minutes. The system automatically optimizes the drawings based on their size, used materials and the perceived similarity. Here are some results of the drawings I made with my pen plotter Karel. Each drawing is computed in just under one second and Karel between one or three hours to complete the drawings, depending on the drawing complexity, the drawing sped and the size of the drawing.

Quartertone Accordion in Just Intonation Music

Tutorial/Beispiele von Caspar Johannes Walter


Soundtrack Box No. 1 was made to produce music for a feature film.

It provided me with just as many limitations and possibilities, as I needed in order to be fully comfortable in the creative process. This video briefly demonstrates some of its capabilities. The soundtrack itself has of course more musical value.

I often have to convince my friends that the box has its own reverb and no additional effects are used. There’s just an extension spring inside the box and a little contact microphone attached to it.

Now I’ve decided to make a new box for every film I’m asked to compose for in the future! Soundtrack boxes are fun!

Introducing the amazing >Compact Disc<

In 1983, when the first compact disc players arrived on the Australian market, they ranged in price from $900-$1800. (This made them a very significant purchase, given that the Australian Bureau of Statistics says average weekly earnings were around $350/week at the time). The price didn’t hold back the rapid adoption of the technology.

But even then, as Sonia put it in her closing remarks, there was an even better technology on the horizon.

“The Compact Disc may well rule the roost – at least until someone perfects a method of putting Beethoven’s 9th on a silicon chip. Don’t laugh, I’m assured that that day, in fact, is not too far off…..”
