Flashbelt ended yesterday, it was a great experience. This was the first year that I have attended and I was very impressed by the program. These were some of the highlights of this years program…
“Emergence” by Jer Thorp, was a very interesting discussing on generative environments and making use of complex systems as a basis. Andre Michelle’s showed some incredible work generating sounds directly in flash with a byte array and showed a preview of his new tool currently titled AudioTools (he said he’ll change that). Robert Hodgin was the last lecture, his presentation was an hour-long display of some of the best generative work I’ve ever seen, the lecture was a very helpful look inside how his applications are working.
The afterparties were also great, the past 3 days have provided me with inspiration for the next several months.
