Hip-Hop Tourette's

Hip-Hop Tourette’s is a learned neuropsychiatric disorder with onset in adulthood, characterized by multiple physical and vocal tics. After significant years spent listening to Rap music these tics often times include coprolalia involving rap lyric references in response to conversation and changes in environment. Hip-Hop Tourette’s re-contexualizes New York City with Rap lyrics.

out of sound design projects, the framesync library

Posted on Monday, 22 November

One of the things that I find most interesting and useful about free software is how the tool gets developed as part of the process of making the result.  I was just working on the sound design for the video Undervine, which is a visualization of data about the wine industry.  I’ve worked on a couple other data vis projects, and some sound design for video in different contexts.  I used Pure Data for these projects because I’m deeply involved in it.  So out of these projects, I’ve started developing a library to make it really easy to sync up sounds with video, then make it easy to skip around and compose while keeping everything easy and in sync.

This library is starting to take shape, and I’ve started to document it, not only for others, but also to remind myself how to use the things inside.  If you are interested, check it out: framesync

As I was working away on the sound for Undervine, I was struck at this particular moment at how synthetic the result looks as compared to something like a song.

Now that Undervine, the data vis/sonification project I have been working on, is done and up on the wall at SFMOMA, I want to show a few clips of things that didn’t make the final cut.  Starting with this clip about global wine production.  We were trying to show how global wine production peaked in the 70s and then stayed about the same.  Meanwhile, the portion of wine production everywhere that was exported anywhere increased quite a bit.  The sound here was used to highlight the record years in wine production, which is represented visually by the grey backing circle (graphics by Bobby Pietrusko and Stewart Smith).
