Lunches are great for meetings. Today me Gisle Frøysland Frode Thorsen and Gitte Bastiansen sat down to discuss future plans for our joint project “Cracker”. Two conclusions:

- When collaborating on projects you immediately loose control of your own calendar.
- It’s amazing how difficult it is to find time for devellopment that suits all four of us.

Tomorrow a group of people working teaching and researching with or on networked art literature media communication and culture in Bergen meet for an informal “nettverkslunch”. Bergen is big enough so that there’s always something happening and small enough so that you can almost catch it all. That creates a good atmosphere for collaboration that I’m appreciating a lot.

I’m going to ask Jill why she’s putting such an emphasise on blogging in her own teaching.

Winding up


My wife is sick today and I’m working from home while looking after the kids. The day is spent mainly answering mails that has been piling up and adding entries to the blog that I didn’t get the time to do during the last week.

Dead End Road


Sometimes I find my self walking down a dead end road and it takes me hours to realize. That happened today. I ended up struggling with a unnecsessary difficult approach to a fairly simple task.
Although it is seldom as fruitless as it feels at the moment I hate it when it happens. Jana Jørgen and me didn’t get time for the important issues due to this today.

To make the day perfect we managed to break a cable we borrowed for linking a Hammerfall DSP PCMCIA card to the breakout box.

Investigating Jade


Today I’ve been spending lots of time working on Jade by Tim Place. Jade is an attempt at solving one of the major difficulties in Max/MSP. Max lacks functionality for creating movement and changes in time. Jade is an arcitecture for embedding patches as modules and scripting progressions and changes in time.

So far Tim has develloped Jade to work mainly with mono and stereo audio signals. For the installation I’m doing in collaboration with Jana Winderen and Jørgen Træen we need to be able to use a quadrophonic setup. Today I’ve been tinkering with Tim’s code to be able to create 4 channel modules and now I’m about to start testing if it works as supposed to.



It seems to work!
