I downloads random sounds from the freesound.org audio database and transfers them to a Volca Sample connected to the computer with an audio cable. Please find an article about the app in the tech section of this site. The app runs in the… Read more »

Volca-Freesound

Volca-Freesound is an online app to load samples on the Korg Volca Sample. It selects random samples from the freesound.org database. So it’s not a sample manager like Vosyr or Caustic Editor. This app chooses random samples by itself. You can only control the maximum length of the samples and which Volca slots to overwrite,… Read more »

Selah magazine kindly invited me to submit some paintings for their third, fall 2018 issue. The printed magazine arrived in the mail today, a great looking small-form magazine filled with poems and artworks. Selah is a new art and literary magazine from Covington, Louisiana, USA.

Single-line 3D text

I wrote some JavaScript to create single-line 3D text using the three.js library to render 3D on a canvas using WebGL. Three.js can already render text with its TextGeometry class, but I wanted something simpler: single-line fonts.

A music video about the Weesperplein

During the summer the idea grew to try and combine images and sound. To see how they influence each other, and in the expectation that it might lead to new ideas for paintings. And possibly to new ideas for music as well. The idea took the form of a music video. This summer I made… Read more »

Force Touch and Web Audio on the iPhone

Since a few weeks I have an iPhone 6S. It has 3D Touch, Apple’s technology to detect pressure on the phone’s screen. It takes some time getting used to. Things unexpectedly happen when you press down on the screen. But it feels naturally very soon. It’s like a third dimension after swiping across the surface… Read more »
