Cellular Automata On-Line And StandAlone Application (Win)

Press Here To Enter The Site: Cellular Automata

Mirek’s Java Cellebration (MJCell) is a Java applet that allows playing 300+ Cellular Automata rules and 1400+ patterns. It can play rules from 13 CA rules families: GenerationsLifeVoteWeighted LifeRule tablesCyclic CA1D totalistic1D binaryNeumann binaryGeneral binaryMargolus neighborhoodLarger than Life, and some of the User DLLs. It allows also to experiment with own rules. The applet is a simplified version of MCell. It does not offer extended features of MCell, but has one advantage over it: its usage is not restricted to MS WindowsFull source code of the applet is available here. You can also download the full off-line version equipped with a rich library of patterns. You should also download this version if you plan to put the MJCell applet on your own Web page.


Decode: Fully Interactive Easy To Use Web Application (Cross Platform)

Download At Google Code

” The identity application is fully interactive and can be controlled via mouse, keyboard and a graphical user interface. The application lets you manipulate most parameters in realtime to create a variety of different looks and we encourage you to take the time to experiment to create your own version. You do not need to be an expert coder, as Karsten has included a detailed user guide for changing each of the parameters via the user interface and provided some pointers to make changes to the code itself.”

SoundHack Plugins Ported to Pd and Max/MSP Format

Press Here To Enter The Site: soundhack.com/

“We have just released the first complete version of the SoundHack externals for PD & Max. These externals replicate most of the SoundHack plugins and are offered free of charge. Included in this collection are externals for amplitude shaping and distortion (+compand~, +chebyshev~ & +decimate~), single-head, multi-head, pitchshifting and granular delays (+delay~, +pitchdelay~, +bubbler~), and the spectral shapers, a set of spectral filters and dynamics processors (+binaural~, +morphfilter~, +spectralcompand~ & +spectralgate~). This package is available at http://www.soundhack.com/externs.php.”

This is a collection of my studies, extracted while developing my commercial projects or just by researching new technologies. You are welcome to leave comments. Please don’t ask for source codes.
I release them whenever I can. However a lot of souces of the recent stuff is stacked at googlecode

RiTa: Tools For Generative Literature

Press HereTo Enter The RiTa Site

” RiTa† is an easy-to-use natural language library that provides simple tools for experimenting with generative literature. The philosophy behind the API is to be as simple and intuitive as possible, while still providing adequate flexibility for more advanced users. The download comes in two flavors: 1) the ‘core’ package, containing the jar files and documentation, and (2) the ‘TTS’ package that adds text-to-speech support. Additionally, statistical models for tagging, chunking, and parsing are available for more advanced users (see ‘Stat-Models’). RiTa optionally integrates with Processing and is both free and open-source.”

Iannis Xenakis’s Achorripsis – The Matrix Game

Achorripsis is introduced by Xenakis as an example of a work composed with a minimum of constraints according to the stochastic process.

The matrix (patch new_base) has its frequencies distributed according to the poisson’s formula, described as the law for the appearances of rare random events.

In dealing with chance, one accepts the idea of a transformational environment (“chance (…) is nothing but an extreme case of controlled disorder”, Formalized Music, pg. 25). In this work, chance is taken as the regulator element, considered as building the philosophic and aesthetic concept. The stochastic laws
here need to establish this “new region of coherence”.
