‘she was captain dark down weird’, a two minute, energetic chiptune anthem by montreal artist battle lava sets the sound for an illuminated lab of thirty 24″ imacs. with a mere game boy, battle lava creates novel sounds with the analog waves of yesteryear. the visuals, composed in a single flash document are split for each screen and assigned when desktop orchestra is launched. each display is controlled by a flash applet served by php and can be started and stopped on demand.
desktop orchestra is a personal project made over the course of a year while i studied graphic design in college. it involved composing a synchronized animation of lights for 30 displays, programming in multiple unfamiliar languages, setting up a server, months of trial and error and recording/editing a video. every aspect of this project involves computers and an intimate relationship with their glowing fluorescents and fiery colours. may their waves radiate strong.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
