Resonant Network: Guitar & Drumset

This demonstrates the emergent, tonal nature of rhythmic entrainment. Melodic, harmonic, timbral shifts, voice-like effects, are all emergent from very simple gestures and motifs. Often the guitar plays only two notes or chords but results in polyphonic, polyrhythmic contrapuntal structures.

Thousands of everyday sounds, organized using machine learning.

Sounds are complex and vary widely. This experiment uses machine learning to organize thousands of everyday sounds. The computer wasn’t given any descriptions or tags – only the audio. Using a technique called t-SNE, the computer placed similar sounds closer together. You can use the map to explore neighborhoods of similar sounds and even make beats using the drum sequencer.

Built by Kyle McDonald, Manny Tan, Yotam Mann, and friends at Google Creative Lab. Thanks to the London Philharmonia for contributing some sounds to this project.

EASERA Software (pc)

Electronic and Acoustic System Evaluation and Response Analysis

EASERA is the unrivaled solution for electronic and acoustic analysis with industry standard quality and incredible flexibility and power.

EASERA consists of four logical parts:

  • Signal generator
  • Measurement
  • Real time analyser
  • Post processing

EASERA provides both data acquisition with a variety of stimulus signals including Time Delay Spectrometry, sweeps MLS or noise excitation signals and a post processing engine to calculate all acoustic functions or measures according to ISO Standard 3382 and higher.

The real time analyser provides multiple ways to perform a fast onsite analysis or to obtain a precise view of the surrounding acoustic environment.

Although many of these tools are available in one form or another in several products, EASERA is the first to bring them all together in one unified measuring package.

EASERA can be run on Microsoft Windows XP or higher and in conjunction with nearly every modern measurement interface.
