humanoid sounds, uncanny valley 

@paul @hecanjog

I did one piece with a speech synthesis (flite) / speech recognition (pocket sphinx) feedback loop thing - could be fun to do something with less mainstream/straightforward speech synth stuff in it.

maybe even with neural networks or genetic programming or something so it can "learn" how to say things.

I love playing around with voice synthesis techniques. Great fun. It's one of the few occasions where computer music has a sense of humor, and totally accessible as a concept to many audiences. Trying to jump back into it again.

Browsers and sound are weird. I've never understood the excitement for web audio, for instance. But then again, I use JACK, Linux, and external sound cards, so it never works. For years, I've been told you can somehow make it work with Firefox somehow, but meh.

@hecanjog
Can't help but think about Eno's experience with the windows startup chime, and how it absolutely consumed him. Definitely an intimidating task...

@hecanjog
Totally! Do to sounds what Knuth was trying to do with fonts and make things parametric.

Revisiting some voice physical model demos I did a few years ago. Mostly it's just porting code from Sporth to Runt.

An XM module to csound score converter.

It was terrible.

The Traveler has some real creepy vibes.

@eli_oat since you tend to have a unicorn barf aesthetic, do you have any particular rainbow color palettes that you like to use?

@zensaiyuki perhaps you have something as well?

@neauoire
Apologies if I somehow managed to overcook your noodle :(

So, in other words, no args=use default name of "export.pbm"?

@natecull
