015 Making Air

100 Sketches


Description

Making air bubbles inside the body in order to fly and dive when necessary.

The sound is based on two versions of FM synthesis: The arpeggiated sound consists of one sine wave modulating the frequency of another in a harmonic relationship. The noisier sound consists of one sine wave with a phase modulation feedback modulating another feedback sine wave. These feedback sine waves go from sine wave through square wave to chaotic oscillation, and when used as FM units will cause highly unpredictable sounds.

Source Code

Requires KF Supercollider-quarks and movement sensors. We use MiniBees, but with a bit of rewriting the MiniBeeUtils should work with any sensor data. See the full gitlab repo for more details on implementation.
