The scientific thread intertwined with this one is recorded in pattern.posterous.com. (Harry's password.)
The former approach is of course a special case of the latter, in which for some time interval with the obvious time coordinate and time vector field. The advantage of the latter approach is that it can be extended (with some technicalities) into situations in which the topology changes (though this may cause the time coordinate to become degenerate at some point, thus forcing the time vector field to develop a singularity). This leads to concepts such as generalised Ricci flow, which we will not discuss here, though it is an important part of the definition of Ricci flow with surgery (see Chapters 3.8 and 14 of Morgan-Tian’s book for details)."
Dear Ozoners and media choreographers:I propose we dedicate most of the Jan 12 Wed TML meeting for a discussion of the 2010-2011 Ozone system. End-users -- artist / experimentalist composers -- are welcome and vital, but this discussion will run at the level of experts and system developers We should allocate 5:15 - 7:00 for this.I'd like to set the creative and research context so we can all prioritize the development effort appropriately to the lab's needs.
(By calibrating I'll mean *making small adjustments** of an instrument's
parameters for contingent conditions of performance site and event*.)
I'm not sure what you mean to suggest here. What are you imagining we would
"incorporate" these techniques into, libmapper itself?Calibration is an interesting problem deserving of more attention. Note
that the hipper devices store calibration information in the device
(e.g. wiimote, nunchuck).
This makes the calibrated device portable. Of course some calibration is
associated with the location (e.g. lighting, AGC, white balance, etc.
for video) other
with a paricular person. My experience is that the date
management/configuration issues are harder than the calibration signal
"Texture" should remind us that time does not have to be modeled on a unidimensional path, -- though all our software tools for time-based media assume this! it's not at all clear to me where that leads, yet. Any thoughts to start?
Speaking of live process, please tell me what you think would be useful as guiding questions / themes/ curiosities for initial materials explorations. For my part, I propose to contribute some performance workshop scenarios from Einsteins Dreams. Id like to ask Michael as well as David Morris when we're all back in Montreal, if we might recruit some people to workshop this together with what lighting or activated materials we gather. Not only those people of course, and we can rapidly go through a bunch of other scenarios... to the limits of what can be done of course. What do you think ? Xin Wei PS Morgan and Michael are familiar with some of this already.
I'd like to share this with Linnaea and Helga if that's ok, And Navid for sophisticated, richer texturing.
