Various web-based tools, mostly for experimental purposes. All licensed under open-source licenses.

Non-exhaustive list; always in progress of adding and developing more.

slitscan

slitscan is a video experiment used to convert still images to video strobe sequences. It takes an image, slices it up according to a user-selectable grid, then plays the slices at 60FPS either in spatial order or by “size-after-PNG-compression” (serves as a proxy for image complexity/entropy).

Originally developed for kun saxan, but it was also used in Operation Anthropolysis (“re-transmission” section).

wavmarks

wavmarks is a very simple webpage that extracts WAV cue points (using the amazing wavefile library) and exports them in Adobe Audition-compatible TSV format.

Made since my Zoom H2N recorder allows setting “Marks” during recording, but doesn’t support exporting them, or even displaying them anywhere else but on the recorder itself.

kollagen (stage: beta)

kollagen is a random image mashup/collage generator. Mostly for fun and kun saxan image feed.

noisemaker (stage: alpha)

noisemaker is a soundscape player/generator, modelled after myNoise. It plays user-supplied YouTube videos, loops them and varies their volume in time, to produce variable soundscapes for relaxation or experimentation.

Currently in alpha stage; in future, will allow for variable volume patterns, semi-random channel configurations, and using arbitrary URLs as audio sources.
