32 years Tron

32 years ago the movie Tron was released. I was on vacation in Japan with my father when we saw posters of that film and we both became hysterical (and that in a country which already made me hysterical) about it and saw it eventually in a cinema either in Tokyo or Kyoto, complete with japanese subtitles.
The soundtrack is by Wendy Carlos who also did the amazing music for Clockwork Orange ten years before, conceptual designer team included Moebius and Syd Mead.

Raspberry Pi, best way to program it?

Continue to experiment with Raspberry Pi, still not decided which software route I should go:
Python, C, C++ with QT, or Java. For me its necessary to have access to the Raspi Cam, accelerated graphics with OpenGL ES and OpenCV. I tried Java8 and followed this steps http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=73489&p=528225 to get it running and it works. Framerate is low but I have to conduct more tests, it seems to run OpenGL accelerated anyway...

Upcoming Elektronengehirn concert performances

I perform reqPZ with my project Elektronengehirn on 21. March in Berlin at A.I.P. Galerie and 2. May at ZKM Karlsruhe on the Linux Audio Conference 2014:

Malte Steiner startete Elektronengehirn 1996 neben seinen anderen Projekten wie z.B. Das Kombinat und Notstandskomitee, um die Möglichkeiten von computergenerierten Klängen und die Verbindung mit anderen Medien auszuprobieren. Die audiovisuellen Konzerte der folgenden Jahren beinhalten auch das Experiment mit alternativen Eingabemöglichkeiten abseits der Klaviatur, so z.B. Datenhandschuh oder wie in diesem Konzert spezielle Kontaktmikrofone, die die Schwingungen einer Metallplatte in Daten umsetzen, die Computergrafiken und synthetische Klänge formen. Die Realisation erfolgte mit Pure Data
