An open source software project for converting sequenced DNA into music. Well beyond simply assigning notes to nucleotides, whose pieces can be played simply by interpreting the electrochemical properties of a DNA sequence in different ways. The site allows you to upload your own pieces as well as listen to those of others (oh, and download the software).
Upload a file to this site and it not only takes the file apart like a hex editor, but it also implements a number of different visualization techniques that translate the binary into visual pictures. The visual feedback is highly useful in the process of reverse engineering, because people's brains just weren't wired to read hex.
CellF is the world’s first neural synthesiser. Its “brain” is made of biological neural networks that grow in a Petri dish and controls in real time it’s “body” that is made of an array of analogue modular synthesizers that work in synergy with it and play with human musicians. It is a completely autonomous instrument that consists of a neural network that is bio-engineered from my own cells that control a custom-built synthesizer. There is no programming or computers involved, only biological matter and analogue circuits; a ‘wet-analogue’ instrument.
Piskel is an online, opensource (https://github.com/juliandescottes/piskel) pixel art and animated game sprite editor in the 8bit style. By manipulating discrete pixels in your web browser you can draw and animate c64 and nintendo style sprites, preview the animation, export them to animated gif files, and download them to incorporate into your own games.
