Project Ideas and Resources
There are some great ideas for Media Computation projects being created around the world. Here are links to those we know about – please do send us more!
Useful for all
- There are some sprites (pictures with a single color background) that you can use for creating movies at http://coweb.cc.gatech.edu/cs1315/4004
- http://www.sampleswap.org/ Free sounds
- From Scott Vandenberg:
- http://www.cs.siena.edu/~scott/instruments contains 8 notes played by each of 23 different instruments. There are 8 tones for each instrument, from C to C, but no sharps/flats. Each note is about a 6-second .wav file (easy to trim to desired length in Python, as I did at the workshop!). Total size of files is 186MB, so you can see why I didn’t email it to you. These were created by a colleague, who says they’re fair game for all to use.
- MusicXML has some fun examples for which you can view the XML code, the “printed” score, and listen to the MP3 version. There’s probably a lot more to it that I haven’t used, but I’m just passing it along in case you’re interested and didn’t know about it.
- Session at SIGCSE2010 -- Variations on a Theme of Media Computation
- A 35 minute movie (developed to take the place of the lecturer one day) on generalizing lists and trees from image and sound specific forms. (40Mb) Generalizing Lists and Trees.mov
