LOOS Interactieve Orkest Machine
active as a software and hardware developper for the LOOS Ensemble since december 2007.
the work for the ensemble untill now has been the development of interactive audio and video software for compositions and installations of peter van bergen.
a collective with poul holleman and salvador breed, previously known as Lik_Me_Rate~. together we work on audio and video installations and performances.

videosynthesis performance // a piece for circuit bent telephone and OpenGL
Blokgolven was created by Luc van Weelden in April 2008 when he was invited by Peter van Bergen to do a solo performance at LOOS Studios in the DCR, The Hague. It is an improvisation piece for one performer, a circuit bent telephone and an interactive OpenGL environment. The interactivity of the video-environment forces the performer to constantly evaluate his own actions as every sound and control gesture are directly projected onto the controlstructure of the live generated video. >>>>>>>>>
circuit bent telephone consists of a telephones numbermatrix which serves
as a routingdevice for an oscillatorcircuit. The matrix is controlled
by touching it with fingers, creating different connections which results
in all sorts of feedbackloops leading to an audio output. The audio output
is captured by a laptop where a DSP network is used to make transformations
onto the sound.
The video is generated by a videoprotocol called OpenGL. This format makes use of creating 3-dimensional objects of basicly any shape, color and position within a virtual space. For Blokgolven the OpenGL-engine works with several objects with simple geometric shapes which are constantly adjusted by analysis of the performers sound and control gestures.
Facetten Education Project
a project for children making short comics. the comics are being animated with a sound track and interactive sounds are played with game controllers.
Nederlands Fonds voor Podiumkunsten+
i have received a work grant from the Nederlands Fonds voor de Podiumkunsten to create a performance for turntables and live video together with Fedde ten Berge.
our plans are to create an interactive computer system implemented with neural networks to analyses the sound output from the turntables and turn it into video. in turn, the video will controll the dsp of the turntables sound.
the project is a continuation of an earlier turntable performance for which we made prepared pieces of vinyl >>>
