Artist and composer David Galbraith presents his new mobile app for creation of abstract image and generative sound with a simple touch interface. Galbraith will describe how he moved key algorithms from his custom desktop software for sound and image to the iOS platform. With a just a few taps the app creates grid-based images and a synchronized melodic soundtrack. Whereas his full-featured desktop software enables creation and presentation of real-time generative animations via a text-based scripting language, the game-like app offers a performative environment for casual creation of a single audiovisual frame. Galbraith will show samples of his generative installation artworks to give context for the app, also describing aspects of his creative process. Galbraith will discuss future directions for the mobile app and how the discoveries made through the use of the app can be brought back to the desktop platform as new data for creative computing.
