We have been happy to support kombinat’s new piece
überdruck with our work on the media framework. We used isadora as the playout engine, installed on a mac mini.
Isadora is triggered by a user pushing the big red buzzer.
Then a combination of randomness, air pressure systems, latex specialty and kombinat’s wisdom in setting the right values will give you an unique experience with this machine.

using isadora as the media engine for
grand jeté we wanted to trigger the lighting desk, unfortunately chamsys only opens the midi functions with their proprietary midi / timecode interface
after analyzing the remote ethernet protocol we build an isadora actor
the protocol is a bit nifty, and a proxy is needed to transform the tcp stream into a udp one
the proxy server is established by using net cat with following attributes // you need to change the 18.104.22.168 with the ip of your chamsys console / pc
type in your terminal:
nc -l -k 5555 | nc -u 22.214.171.124 6553
to exit the proxy session press “ctrl + c”
isadora is calculating the bit length of the array and using an increm counter to indicate how many messages got send previously, you find more informations inside the actor …

building a custom isadora patch for tobias
including a qc composition as a host for
kineme’s datatools to build the structure for 1024 polygonmask. The 6 Points are hard coded in the composition as the stage design stays the same. We are using a frame buffer to “hold” the image in the memory ones editing is done, so we could deactivate the qc patch and gain a higher fps.
