Being a hefty, deaf newcomer virtually makes Will Halpin the least well known man at Coaler excessive. but if he befriends the single man much less renowned than him, the dork-namic duo has the smarts and guts to determine who knocked off the megastar quarterback. Will can’t pay attention what’s occurring, yet he’s an excellent observer.

The border between those who refer to themselves as artists with a good knowledge of programming and those who see themselves as programmers who use their code creatively is fluid. The questionnaire asked for self-assessment on a five-stage scale between “user” and “developer”. In the context of Pd, which is designed as a program with a target audience of musicians and artists, it can also be interpreted as a scale which can be understood between the use of Pd as a musical instrument and the programming of Pd.
To underline the idea of physical immobility with highly discursive activity, I would let the musicians play in an atmosphere of traffic and people walking, played from tape, so that the instruments and voice would often not even be audible, masked by the noise of vehicles passing by. The audience should notice within the first few minutes that no action is taking place and therefore calm down and take part in the reflective process. score music performance lively human intuitive lively human intuitive idea realize generate structure score music performance lively time marking_time movement process movement time boring lively time onset break chain following pattern parameters score music performance represent notion lively human voice discursive thinking process performance represent notion parameters score When considering how to realize the structure of the piece without being too tasteful in a musical sense, or simply too human, I thought of the patch structure of Pd, which with its objects is able to represent various ideas chosen from the tale, each one connected to a specific musical expression, and where the interconnections of objects represent semantic relationships between the several ideas.
The [mass] object has one inlet to receive forces and one outlet for its position (another outlet provides information not essential for the simulation). The pmpd mass is punctual, which means that it has no volume and cannot rotate. Although this does not exist in the physical world, it can still be a good approximation. We will see later how to simulate massive objects. The physical notation of Newton’s law is F = ma where: F = the sum of all forces applied to a specific mass m = the weight of the mass a = the acceleration of the mass This physical law means that the acceleration of any mass is proportional to the force applied to it, but it also depends on the weight of the mass.
