I finally put all of the handouts for Maya 2 online as part of the new improved Maya site
Posts from ‘July, 2004’
So we did the show at the Xenodrome Friday, to a great audience response. Declan’s music is really haunting and touching, and a lot of people were strongly affected. As promised in the last post, below is a sampling of the interactive graphics I prepped for the show. All images are lifted from an excellent music video shot by Declan and Co. in Ireland, Photoshopped to look like old photos in a frame and stuck into a small OpenGL program that renders images to the screen and advances through them at the press of the up arrow.
Lately I’ve been really busy rehearsing for the Larry Beau show, a performance of the music of Declan Burke. Declan’s joined by Cindy Weyuker on vocals and piano, Jason Webster on guitar and vocals, and myself on electronic saxaphone and vocals. We’re playing the Xenodrome here in San Francisco this Friday (July 16th), and the Baggot Inn in New York next Thursday.
In addition to the flyer at left, I’ve also made a little program to interactively cycle through still images to provide a backdrop for the action of the show- one of these days I’ll get around to posting it somewhere.
I’ve updated my materials for my Maya students- while the revamped Maya 2 section is still on the way, the Maya 1 and MEL sections have been upgraded, and I’ve started on a “Maya tidbits” page, which has a variety of small examples I’ve created to demostrate one thing or another in response to a student question. This will continue to grow over time, but has a handful of examples so far.
