Dear, Garrett, Mike, Julian, Omar, Chris Z,
Swiss-French artist Robin Meier used self-organizing maps
to animate LED lighting as a network of synced oscillators in Firefly Sync in Russia
Paper about Max Jitter patch: jit.robosom
Self-organizing map abstraction for MaxMSP Jitter.
Don’t know if jit.robosom works or is very interesting in effect but his jit.robosom may be worth a try for rhythm experiments driving our lighting instruments.
This is a relatively trivial application of linked oscillators.
We should be able to achieve much more interesting behaviour,
especially with live action in the loop.
A presentation by an authority in SOM’s: Timo Honkela (Finland)
HUNCH : Mike K’s correlation-based method should yield more interesting temporal textures.
