Once a month, CDM goes from its virtual state to a sort of augmented reality existence in Brooklyn. (In Williamsburg, no less, which has itself been augmenting itself into neighborhoods formerly known as Bushwick.) Tonight is one of those times.
If you’re in Brooklyn, you should come enter our physical dimensions so you can:
- make your own NoiseToy with Loud Objects’ Tristan Perich, and take it home for the low, low price of ten clams. (Dollars, though I think clams are actually worth more at the moment. I’ll eat the clams.)
- witness strange, wonderful things happen in the areas of audiovisual virtual reality and free, new sequencers for Mac and PC
- watch me make a fantastic musical Processing sketch work, shipped over the Interwires from Spain!
- hang out with us and discuss our other projects that don’t work (because, really, that’s part of the process
TONIGHT = 7:30 pm (drop by late if you must) = Brooklyn, here
If you are separated from Brooklyn by time and space, fret not. I’m working on a site that will start to document these projects, and we’re extending our geographical dimensions so that these events start happening in other cities / countries / continents (perhaps among the all-Firefox crowd in Antarctica, where I gather they use Linux as they actually are penguins).
Also, a lot of these hardware and software projects are available for your consumption — sometimes free (as in beer and freedom), so we can all share the love.
For instance, learn about / acquire a Noise Toy on the Noise Toy site!
But it’s my belief that the future of CDM really depends on the interplay between physical and virtual reality in all sorts of dimensions. That is, so long as in the process I don’t become unstuck from time. I’ve watched Lost / Doctor Who, and that often ends badly.
