I discovered a wonderful computer music/sound art blog by Evan Merz. Today, he posted about his newly published book integrating the Processing language with Sound Art Creation. This opens up sound art creation possibilities in the digital visual arts without having to learn yet another language.
On his blog, Merz writes:
Over the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of discovering Oliver Bown’s wonderful sound art library, Beads. Beads is a library for creating and analyzing audio in Processing or Java, and it is head-and-shoulders above the other sound libraries that are available for Processing. From the ground up, Beads is made for musicians and sound artists. It takes ideas popularized by CSound, Max and other popular sound art environments, and intuitively wraps them in the comfort of the Processing programming language.
