Dave Griffiths: WigWamJam
I’ve previously posted about Dave Griffiths’ livecoding visual tool Fluxus, but his web site is an amazing place so I’m posting about it separately.
What he calls "dave's page of art and programming" is an overflowing sketchbook of projects dealing with Artificial Life, sound synthesis and software for live performance. Most of it is Linux-based and freely available, often directly downloadable from the CVS source repositories.
The WigWamJam project looks particularly interesting. It’s an evolving modular synthesizer, with the resulting combinations looking like a PD hacker’s dream (or nightmare). It’s part of a larger package called Live noise tools, used for live performances with coded or evolved music.
