Greater variation in output. Including pseudo-Braxtonian ‘separation’ implemented via interp tables. Implementation of a meta-banalyzer that shakes up the system depending on input variation. Greater variation in the VL70m […]

Fifteen days ago, during the break between beta test sessions, Franziska Schroeder asked a pithy question that cut to the core of this enterprise: […]

io + I met

On the 10th of November 2008 I had the great pleasure to meet io. She seemed a rather calm, clandestine creature, not saying much… not moving much, in fact not engaging with me much at all. However, she appeared to be a ‘saxophonistic’ persona – shiny, slightly shimmering in the sunlit surroundings. But who is […]

Saxophonist, improviser, theorist and veteran of technological arts, Franziska Schroeder will be working with io++ (or components that will make up that machine), and we’ll see more clearly what work needs to […]
