Ich beschäftige mich grade mit der diskordischen Mythologie und find’s
ziemlich lustig.
Hier eine meiner “Interpretationen”. Weitere Ergüsse finden sich da.

From Pixelshox to Quartz Composer

Monday, June 20th, 2005


As some people know: I fell in Love with Quartz Composer which is included with Apple’s Developertools.
It started off with me using Pierre-Olivier Latour’s great Pixelshox – experimenting with midisensors connected via an eo-body device; and now it’s Quartz: the same thing, an a more evolved level.
(Pierre works for Apple now).
It’s astonishingly easy for me to use – me, the “nonprogramming-type” – and reminds me a bit of MaxSP but in OS X-Style. There’s these elastic “wires” to connect the different patches – drag’n`dropable from the library.
The hierachy browser (was missing in pixelshox) makes it easier to navigate between macropatch-levels.
The most inspiring site I found lately is at:

Have a Look at some QuartzScreensavers for the CCC.

Mac OS X Tiger required.

Ok, still fiddling with the PDF-Import to make files far smaller, but it already works pretty smooth.

Fiddling around with quartz composer again. It’s a lot of fun, but we still haven’t properly found out, how javascript fits in, yet. I need it for some screensaver-ideas with falling, rotating objects. Maybe there’s another way round it.. ? I also would like to move objects more specifically. So, I’m experimenting in my spare time.
