Friday, July 22, 2022: 5:00 pm (DAC 416ABC): RADIO WONDERLAND will be performing live at A New Hope. This talk will expose the how and why. As to what, RADIO WONDERLAND pulverizes mass media into little bits that dance; live commercial radio becomes recombinant funk, controlled by old shoes Joshua hits with sticks (he's a drummer) and a vintage Buick steering wheel (he's also a... wheel player). All the processing is live, though his custom Max code. This talk will look at some of that code - which is nicely graphical - and will discuss the place of high-level programming environments such as Cycling 74's Max which often comes with their own low-level escape hatches. But that's just coding - nothing particularly "hackery" about it. It's what RADIO WONDERLAND does with mass media, live performance, and ordinary objects that seems to tickle hackers and the HOPE community. That will also be discussed here.
