Tracky? Can it be true?
Well, it's web2.0, baby! It looks like heaven with these round edges and nice colors but it tastes like hell...
We found this guy on youtube and made a song for him. This is the music video!

"Lektrolab were invited by Olia Lialina, Professor of New Media at the Merz Akadamie, Stuttgart to lecture during Walwacksksk. Students participating were at various levels through their New Media Studies diploma and most students were first time circuit benders. Paul and Emma became their full time lecturers for the period and the goal of the week was that the students should have created a circuit bent intertactive object that could be used in a performance at the end of the week. Some students work in pairs using microcontrollers. All students succeeded. Thank you to Helene, Lisa, Stephanie, Timo, David, Dennis, Leo, Rolo and Philip for such tremendous effort." – Emma Davidson (Lektrogirl)

Forget the 'restaurant at the end of the universe'! This automatoed kitchen offers a balanced diet and a unique way of cooking! The kitchen is not just part of every home - it is a place of communication and cultural exchange! It's the best place to hang out at parties etc. Recipes are being discussed, new dishes invented. The S.E.R.V.I.C.E. Team has created a REAL and actually WORKING kitchen that could be controlled over the internet via a GUI.
People around the globe were participating in a cooking session, dealing with an indirect way of team work, facing an application that seemed to have its own personality. Supervising the jam on several webcams, the participants were able to control mechanical devices like a custom made food shredder, oil and water pumps, a conveyor belt and more.
Online participants could prepare a meal for the operators inside the AutoKitchen by making use of the S.E.R.V.I.C.E. web interface which provided a chat function and a text-to-speech module for user-operator communication. Hardware by doepfer was used to build the activation circuit to control the machines.
S.E.R.V.I.C.E. (Super Entertaining Remotely Viewable Internet Cooking Ensemble) functions as a „medium, that allows and virtually provokes interpersonal communication beyond its physical dimensions.“ – (Nicolas Anatol Baginsky)
Online participants could prepare a meal for the staff inside the AutoKitchen, controlling the S.E.R.V.I.C.E. web interface. A Doepfer Midi->CV circuit was used to activate the following devices:
* Food Shredder
* Oil and Water Pump
* Adjustable 10 step hot plate
* Stirring device
* Conveyor belt
* Electric spoon

I don't think so. But in any case it's fun watching the artists take off their cloths in their music videos just so the fat kid pays for their CDs (or downloads) and jerks off to it.
   This project is pretty hot. Change?

The Installation TVicious focuses on the regular analogue television set which has populated living rooms all over the world since its invention. The typical TV's user interface is limited to channel selection, volume control and minor video adjustments like brightness/contrast and saturation settings.
However, the viewer does not seem to feel uncomfortable with these limitations, because “'surfing' between the X TV-channels constitutes an entity of a self-made-directed movie.”1 Although the broadcasters are defining the program's schedule and content, the sole power to switch between the growing number of channels seems to create such an intriguing illusion. The desire to get an overall view of what's going on is refused by the linear structure of the medium. “The TV image requires each instant that we 'close' the spaces in the mesh by a convulsive sensuous participation that is profoundly kinetic and tactile.”2 Still, the user is attached to the TV, sluggishly affirming what oozes out the speakers and screen...
The TV apparatus can be seen as a “Black Box” technology - an object that is “complex in its structure, but simple in its function.”3 The technical mode of operation is unknown or of no importance to the user, who is merely interested in the external behavior of the Black Box.
The aim of TVicious was not to deconstruct the TV box, but to question the user's ways of TV operation and perception in a playful simulation. The user has to crawl through the front of a TV shaped box. In there, he faces a monitor, displaying what seems like regular television image. Small speakers blast the appropriate sound into the box. A set of different sensors is assembled on the walls and floor of the instrument. The curious visitor soon notices that the signal can be manipulated in realtime by making use of the different sensors. Several audio and video filtering methods, eg. ring modulation for pitch-shifting the sound or dynamic magnification and multiplication of the image, can be simultaneously applied to resynthesize the original TV program in manyfold ways.
The need to deform your body to reach the sensors, mocks the armchair viewer's clumsy position. Extra fun and noise are guaranteed when two users enter TVicious at once - TV-judge Barbara Salesch transforms into a distorted, multiplied monster in an instant! To keep track of the original signal, a small control monitor is mounted in the corner of the box.
The experiment was realized by feeding ordinary satellite Television into a Video-Digitizer through a Max/MSP/Jitter Patch running on a 15" Powerbook inside the back of the box. The CV signals coming from the analog sensors were converted to MIDI data which controlled the parameters of the digital sound and video effects. The resulting manipulated data was then connected to the SCART Port of a standard cathode ray tube TV.

Using "Lightening" we created an interactive VR band. We recorded short clips with 2 cameras so the video could be viewed in 3d (using 2 projectors, a polarized canvas and specs with polarization filter). A tracking system allowed us to choose one of the three musicians by simply looking at them, and move our arm right or left to make them play something else.
It was very hard syncronizing the tracks, cause the pc we used was slow. Initially we planned on having a baton as the control device, but as time ran out we used our hand.

This Project was an attempt to create music using GPS information. While I was wandering through a park, a GPS reciever continuously collected information about longtitude, latitude and altitude of my position, and saved them into a text file. I used Processing to visualize the data, and to send it via OpenSoundControl to Max MSP, which converted the information into MIDI signals. Position and travelling speed changed pitch and length of the tones. The generated melody plays over a raw song structure, typical for the German genre 'Heimatmusik' ("homeland music")
   This project is ridiculous. Change?
