Mashups

*"Raiding the 20th Century" is djfood's monumental mashup of 20th century audio materials. Both a composition and a history, "Raiding" was djfood's attempt at creating "the defnitive document on cut up music." In the eclectic work he mixes Madonna, John Cage, The Monkees, Jay-Z, Grandmaster Flash, William Burroughs, Negativeland, Missy Elliot, Marshall McLuhan, 2 Many DJs, Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince, Danger Mouse, Frank Zappa and a hundred or so more folks.

Toolz

  • OGLE: The OpenGLExtractor: Eyebeam's Open Lab has launched OGLE (i.e. OpenGLExtractor), a software package that allows for the capture and re-use of 3D geometry data from 3D graphics applications running on Microsoft Windows. It works by observing the data flowing between 3D applications and the system's OpenGL library, and recording that data in a standard 3D file format. In other words, a 'screen grab' or 'view source' operation for 3D data. The primary motivation for developing OGLE is to make available for re-use the 3D forms we see and interact with in our favorite 3D applications. Video gamers have a certain love affair with characters from their favorite games; animators may wish to reuse environments or objects from other applications or animations which don't provide data-level access; architects could use this to bring 3D forms into their proposals and renderings; and digital fabrication technologies make it possible to automatically instantiate 3D objects in the real world. For more information, instructions, examples of applications and download the software package visit http://ogle.eyebeamresearch.org/
