The Amazing Rolo's old blog (the new one is at theamazingrolo.net)
Above you can watch a short movie I finished this week. It's a strange sci-fi narrative that takes place on another planet, where sounds and lights are perceived differently than on Earth.
You can download an ipod-ready version here:The Amazing Rolo - Darkness (34 mb)

And you can read about what I was trying to do (and how I went about doing it) here

Tea + Jam
My friend Pete Vilk and I recently finished a little website about our Tea and Jam project. Check it out!Tea + Jam
The idea was to build an interface where people could come help us make some sound and music while drinking tea in a relaxing atmosphere. We're going to keep developing it, so this will probably evolve a lot in the near future.
This week I'm working on a short video. It will be done by Friday, I'll upload it here as soon as it's finished. See you then!
Wii Loop Machine 1.1
The response to my Wii Loop Machine software was truly overwhelming, it took me completely by surprise. It has motivated me to work much harder on it, and today I finished a website dedicated to the Loop Machine where you can download the new version 1.1:The Official Wii Loop Machine Website
This update only changes a few things (described on that page), but over the next couple of months I hope to keep working on it to incorporate most of the suggestions people have made - bpm/tempo settings, quantization, and audio input, to name just a few. Check back often for news and updates. As always, don't hesitate to get in touch with comments or questions.
