Today I’m going to present you open source DIY projects by Igor Brkic aka HyperGlitch. You already know Igor from my Artduino workshop overview few weeks ago, because he was one of the instructors during the workshop.
Igor works as a Research Associate at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Zagreb. He enjoys hacking hardware and devices, preferably MIDI interfaces. But he’s also deeply involved into programming, linux, playing guitar, dsp, arduino…

Bob Moog, the father of the Moog synthesizer and one of the pioneers of electronic music for your tasty ears and intuitive desires… This post was for about a week in my WP draft, and I was so inspired by the beauty of peeps from Arcade Fire last dayz, that I simply had to connect this feelin’ with Robert Moog‘s ideas and invention. Enjoy the history of music!
I’ve dug out few documentaries about composer and artist John Cage covering his life and music, I think most people would find highly recomendable… Needless to say in what amount Cage has influenced contemporary music scene, media art and, of course, modern dance.
… and these films are John Cage: I Have Nothing to Say and I Am Saying It (1990) by Allan Miller, Peter Greenway: ‘Four American Composers (1983) – John Cage, The Making of One11 by Henning Lohner (1992), Opus 20 Modern Masterworks: John Cage by Klaus Lindemann (2006) and John Cage: In Love with Another Sound (1992) by Miroslav Sebestik.
It seems like I’m publishing here by default video interviews made by 25FPS – International Festival of Experimental Film and Video. Well, yes… I do! It would be a shame to miss out interesting people talking about interesting stuff. As you can see, it can’t be simpler…
Thus, expanded cinema experimentalist and soundscape ‘catcher’ Bruce McClure talks in short about that what’s behind his works ‘There was something else behing it!’ and ‘Treeshade looms up behind the jostling’.
