Photo Bending with Audio Shop

highpass

 

Alan knows what I like:

Which leads me to robertfoss/audio_shop: Your friendly neighbourhood script for mangling images using audio editing tools

This turns out to be a much quicker way of databending than the convert to RAW, open in audacity, add effects, export to RAW dance I’ve tried before.

I’ve not done much more than a quick trial, but am adding this for later reference.

  1. Downloaded the script for the link above.
  2. It needs ffmpeg and Sox. I’ve aready got ffmpeg and quickly installed sox with handbreak.
  3. then I ran some tests.

It is much quicker than I expected, with images of 1200 pixels taking a few seconds.

I am looking forward to start trying some different effect, changing parameters and combining effects. The script handles video too!

End of a Good Spell

#Ds106 GoodSpell Final Season ep 8 Letting go Bullet 107! The End!

For the last episode of the DS106 Good Spell Mariana and I were joined by Jim Groom and Ronald Leunissen.

Since The DS106 Good Spell Episode 1, Marina & I have been talking DS106 0n Sunday Evenings, covering her mammoth post: DS106 in 106 posts and 106 bullets published at 1:06. This consisted of 106 bullet points reflecting on the Headless 13 iteration of DS106.

I think we managed an average of about 2 bullets per episode.

I’ve really enjoyed and learnt from the process. We were usually joined by a wee audience on twitter.

The show was futz filled and tweet distracted, we chatted and laughed our way through serious and silly aspects of DS106, sometimes circling the same territory sometimes veering of wildly. Marina’s bullets gave us a base from which we could cover all sorts of ideas to do with online life & learning.

Delightfully we were provided with links, posters and bumpers from various members of the DS106 community who we own a pile of thanks.

As we signed off each episode: DS106 Radio #4Life

Cubomania revisited

A while back I did the daily create for 6 January 2014 Create a Self Portrait Cubomania Style. And knowced up a couple of quick web pages to make cubomania images and gif.

The other day I was messing about with some web pages inspired by the Universe app and was reminded of the cubomania stuff.

I’ve updated the Cubomania Gif! page so that you can, choose the number of slices, speed of the gif and the ability to add a frame of the original image. You can also make static jpg versions on the same page.

I am attracted to the random nature of cubomania, interestingly if you search for images online many look as if they have been rearranged with some taste as opposed to randomly.

Featured image on this post was from a tweet by Theo created with the webpage.

One more, this time including the original
