555-Workshop for Kids
April 2015: Studio Algorhythmics gave a workshop for kids making small 555 oscillator circuits for kids and adults in the framework of Oslo Night 2015 and “Critical Make” an exhibition in HeK. The plan was to give an improvised spatial multi-channel concert after, but there were too few participants. Thanks to Serena Cangiano from Fablab […]
Intermediate state of the “Experimental Data Aesthetics” project
March 2015: Experimental Data Aesthetics a project, which is still running got featured by annual research survey magazine of University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (lowres pdf in German). We have now focused on experimenting with the interactive scatterplot matrix. And testing modes of both sonic brushing, linking and activation, but as well […]

Jan 2015: Beside visiting familiy etc. a visit to DMM.make AKIBA and Tama Art University, Prof. Akihiro Kubota, where he showed me parts of his art satelite project (thanks to Kazuhiro Jo) and a visit to IAMAS in Gifu, where I visited Jo-sans “office” and saw the workspaces of the students, both brought me inspiring […]
Studies on Criticality No. 1 – Final results
Sept 2014: On the 14th this month, within the “Preview”-Event of the Academy of Art and Design, Studio Algorhythmics showed some stage of Studies on Criticality No. 1. an installation that explores cellular automata not only visually, but through audification by a multi-channel speaker system. Cellular automata are interesting, since they show four stages or […]
Studies On Criticality No. 1 – first steps
July 2014: Studies On Criticality No. N-Series is planned as an installation and experiment that explores self-organized criticality as an aesthetic phenomenon primarily but not solely by ear. The projects inquires this aspect of criticality defined as one of the crucial processes by which complexity arises in nature within the aesthetic framework of a minimalistic […]
A first small progress of the “Experimental Data Aesthetics” project
May 2014: The EDAe-Project started (it still needs an own website etc.). We made a github and a small blog. Ipython is a good tool to note down some ideas in combination with a packet called numpy it can do array manipulation, which is important for data analysis. Here is a first Ipython notebook with […]
Talk at “Forum für Komputerkultur”
On March 24 2014 Studio Algorhythmics was presented in Basel at a local community event called “Forum für Komputerkultur”. I was happy to re-join the locals. Here some pictures made by Ted Davis.
Herztian Experiments – Hello World
Feb 2014: Programming a FM-radio receiver is supposed to be one of the most simple things to do in software defined radio, so I gave it a try and tested the new USRP N200 that
Chua’s Circuit a Wild Thing
Jan 2014: Some results of experiments with the famous chua circuit a chaotic oscillator circuit. On the picture above with the oscilloscope you can see the double scroll. There is a video with a simple soundcard oscilloscope. The experiments were made for a contribution to the conference “Wild Thing“.
Some blurbs on the buzz word of the year 2012 (this archived post is dated Dec 29, 2012). Many people wrote on that in the textual agencements of www. It is called “New Aesthetic” and even has a wikipedia entry. It was coined in March at the SXSW 2012 by James Bridle from London. There […]
Almost any electronic communication device can be transformed into a generator of sound, rhythms and melodies. Likewise are we surrounded by digitally coded electromagnetic infospheres. “Detektors” initiated by Martin Howse and Shintaro Miyazaki was conceived both as a cartography of user-generated geolocational sound recordings, logs and walks, which reveal these hidden electromagnetic geographies, spaces and […]

Rhythms of Sorting
AlgorhythmicSorting is an open source program and learning tool for people, who want to learn and analyze the diversity of sorting algorithms by hearing the different rhythmic and pattern generating behaviour of different sorting algorithms like bubble sort, merge sort, quick sort or heap sort and others. It shall be used by students, sound artists, […]
The Devil is in the Details
An essay for “Volume 28 – The Internet of Things (July, 2011)” published by Archis, Amo and C-lab (p. 14-15). It was written for designers, architects and other “creatives” and is anything but an academic paper. There are no references and its style is very polemic. You can read a revised version here: The […]
Sounds from a Coil
Some algorhythmic sounds from a japanese mobile phone and an older iPhone with a coil by Monacor (AC-71/3,5MM-Coil) from the archives.
Real Computer Music
Some sort of computer music without any proper composer. Computer music as a side effect of computation. Read these articles here and here for getting an insight into the historical background of this sounds. Below a circuit from the UNIVAC mainframe computer (top) and one from the Ferranti Pegasus Computer (bottom). More informations here (in […]
