Help Us Put Fire in Syzygryd!

May 7th, 2010 Ed Hunsinger Posted in Syzygryd 36 Comments »

Syzygryd is in full swing these days, with software being written, controllers designed and ordered, giant pipes delivered, and testing of the fire tornado and flame effects. But our budget currently doesn’t cover all the fire we want in the sculpture! Oh no, what are we going to do?!? This is where you come in! We need your help to put fire in Syzygryd.

We’ve got a Kickstarter going that will help us pay for all the parts and some of the fuel to run at Burning Man this year. For your donation, you’ll receive all sorts of schwag, ranging from a sticker all the way up to your own private DDI or 2pir run! Also quite enticing is the chance to get your own personal flame effect built by us!

Syzygryd Software Preview

A short video showing off our early software design for our latest project, Syzygryd.

The sequencer and the display layer are written in Processing, the iPods are running touchOSC by hexler, and the computer making the noise is running Ableton Live with Native Instruments’ Massive. We’re working on getting better sounds set up for it, now that we have the software generally functioning.

Thanks a ton to Audrey, Yosh, and Nicole for editing, and Ian for filming.
