pd data structures
I think I get it now.. It's much more general than just x=time.
"If you want to make this time based, just send it to a delay line."
Maybe give it a try?
More interesting talk is .
- don't build environments (no more niche to fill)
- what are interesting ways to "expand" a small set of controls
- time is best left to humans
Coming back to an old idea: the interesting part is in making
controllers for things that are inherently not playable. The control
connection is part of the interesting part of the sound. Miller makes
a different point: the performer is part of the instrument through
feedback - measuring just the control doesn't contain all the
information. The state of the system being controlled is a very
important component. This idea needs careful thought.
Miller's answer is to rely on the instrument to provide that feedback.
The real problem is physical: feed info back to the nerves.
Another dare: a standard programming language that can survive and is
expressive enough to provide reactive elements.
