The ‘Data Driven DJ‘ project is brilliant. I can see so much potential in it. I intend to write more about it soonish, but you should go and look at this project now. Run. Don’t walk!
Also, note this:
I don’t have very specific guidelines for this, but I’m generally looking for these kinds of sounds:
Music you own the rights to (and would allow me to use it in a fair way)
High-quality recordings of instruments (the weirder the better)
Sound recordings of cultural or historical significance (or really any recording that is interesting or unique in some way) [see post]
I’m going to see if I can find some audio somewhere that would meet that last requirement, send them to him. You should too!
I’ve been interested in sound, space, history, data, and experience for a while (you might even call that a kind of augmented reality, or a visualization, or a sonification, or…) but instead of crappily coding my own stuff, I think I’m going to explore the data driven dj’s materials for a while, see what I can build out from there.
Oh, and if you’re interested, here’s some of my sonic’d stuff:
