The Wayfarer Project

In this episode, Wayfarer continues his multi-tasking approach to crafting and skilling. His main missions are to make small barrels, some basic tools that are useful early on, a small cart, and a large cart for storing and transporting items and resources. He covers a lot of ground in this episode, so it is a must watch for beginning Wurm players.

This episode starts out with mining as the chief mission. It is time to find iron and it is a an essential resource to find early on. Wayfarer dug down to open up a mine in the previous episode, and now it is time to mine out passageways in search for iron. Wayfarer shows how to make an organized effort in finding iron as quickly as possible (quick for Wurm that is). He shows how the prospecting skill can be utilized to find the ores that you are looking for. Additionally, while working on mining, Wayfarer keeps working on other skills by multi-tasking, which leads him to introduce basic farming skills, and more uses for those items that you find when foraging and botanizing.

Frequency modulation is one of the fundamental concepts in synthesis. When modulating the frequency of a sound producing oscillator at lower rates, one hears the bending up and down of pitch that we call vibrato. When the rate at which this modulation is sped up, crossing somewhere between 20 Hz - 40 Hz, the effect changes into one in which we hear side bands, or other frequencies of tonal quality that add to the complexity of the frequency spectrum of the sound. FM synthesis is the use of a frequency modulating oscillator to create side bands, shape their parameters over time, and mix them together to complete more complex sounds. In this episode, we will add an FM module to our synthesis to explore the basics of frequency modulation for vibrato and basic spectrum coloration.

Amplitude modulation can simply be heard as a rising and falling of amplitude, which is directly related to loudness in sound. This modulation is performed with an oscillator and one can apply the waveform shape that is desired. When the rate of modulation is faster than approximately 40 Hz, it is called ring modulation in that one can perceive other frequencies, called side bands, forming in the sound. When the rate of vibration is slow enough to perceive the individual fluctuations, it is called tremolo. In this video we learn about amplitude modulation and apply it to our synthesizer that we are building in Pure Data.

In this episode, we will take a look at an approach called subtractive synthesis. Subtractive synthesis is usually performed by filtering the frequency spectrum. We will see how to make a band pass filter and a low pass filter that has center and cut off frequency controls as well as Q controls. This will allow us to ass a simple filter to our synthesizer and shape the frequency spectrum better.

MIDI pitchbend is a special controller in the MIDI protocol that allows one to bend pitches smoothly. As we are building our synthesizer in Pure Data, we need to see how we can convert this 14 bit controller data stream into frequency information that allows for the bending of pitch up and down. In this video, we will see how to do that and add this functionality to the synthesizer we are building in PD. By the end of this video, we will see how to smoothly bend pitch up and down at definable ranges of semitones.

Envelopes are used in multiple ways to create shapes over time in synthesis. The most common use for envelopes is to control amplitude, hence the amplitude envelope. The ADSR envelope is the most common amplitude envelope and is found in use in most synthesizers whether they are analog or digital. This episode shows you how to make an ADSR envelope in Pure Data and a a GUI to control the attack, decay, sustain, and release segments. This will allow us to have better control over the amplitude of our synthesizer's signal.

MIDI is a protocol that communicates musical actions on devices such that they can speak a universal language. In synthesis, MIDI information needs to be converted into something that digital audio components and software can understand in audio terms. This is a basic demonstration of this as we build a MIDI input module for our virtual synthesizer that we are making in Pure Data. In this lesson we will take in MIDI note and velocity data and utilize it to control our main signal producing oscillator. The viewer will start to see the overall virtual synthesizer that we are building start to come together now that we have gone over some of the basic fundamentals required in learning about synthesis.

Additive synthesis is an approach to making sounds that utilizes sine tones as the building blocks of the sounds. In fact, one can make the 4 basic wave shapes, sine, triangle, pulse, and saw, by adding together singe waves. By adding sine waves at harmonic overtone frequencies and certain strengths, one can make these 4 basic wave shapes. As we build our synthesizer in this series, we will need oscillators to generate signal. We will make an oscillator in this episode that will function as a multi-shape oscillator module to generate signal. It will utilize the 4 basic wave shapes and generate them using additive synthesis principles by creating a wave table with summed sine waves as harmonics.

In this episode, we are going to learn about wave shaping. This is a technique for creating different sounds by changing the shape of the waveform. Additionally, we will see how to make the 4 basic wave shapes in synthesis. These wave shapes include the sine wave, triangle wave, square or pulse wave, and the sawtooth wave. These shapes have been used since the early days of synthesis right up to today. They can be used to generate sound that is further crafted and they can be used to create shapes for modulating sound. This episode is full of information about PD and the viewer will learn how to make a multi-oscillator module. This is a must see episode for those who want to learn PD and those who want to learn synthesis.

An essential part of synthesis is learning about overtones, undertones, harmonics, and partials. these are the components of a sound's frequency material that make up its tone color. Tone color is the unique sound of an instrument or voice and in synthesis, it is at the heart of the creative process. This lesson shows how to use Pure Data to demonstrate the concept of making harmonics and partials to change the tone color of a sound. This lesson also uses Adobe Audition and Spear by Michael Klingbeil to demonstrate the concepts of overtones, harmonics, and partials.

We are about to go on an adventure in which we will learn about the art of synthesis using the open source programming environment, Pure Data. PD is a free download and is a very wide-open creative environment for artists to create all things audio and MIDI. It is a great way to learn synthesis as it allows you to build synthesizer components from the ground up to truly know what they are and how they function. This series is dedicated to teaching the fundamentals of synthesis so that one will be able to apply this knowledge to any software or even analog hardware synthesizer in the future. In this series, the learning of Pure Data and synthesis is made easy.

This episode goes over some of the basics of PD so that one can become more comfortable with the software. Additionally, digital audio fundamentals are covered, specifically sampling rate. This episode shows how sampling sound is a process of converting electrical signal into digital information that can then be managed and visualized in a waveform display. Digital audio is composed of numbers that store the information of the waveform of the sound that was sampled.

Description

Dusk is that time of day when the late afternoon starts to spiral down into night. At this time, it is said that the barriers between the unseen worlds of perception and our ordinary reality are thinner than at other times of the day. As the darkness of night draws forth from our collective unconscious minds feelings of mystery, vulnerability, and perhaps fear, the border between the vitality of day and the obscurity of night is definitely a fleeting time of anticipation.

This could not be more true in this video where the rain is at the forefront of the oncoming Hurricane/Tropical Storm Elsa which was traveling up the west coast of Florida to the north when its path will intersect with Digging Cat Homestead where this meditation was recorded. This is the calm before the storm. Meditation, relaxation, and sleep aids are the tools that one will need to mentally deal with the oncoming storm. May this moment in time bring you peace for meditation, relaxation, or sleep when you need some calming assistance.

Description

This piece is inspired by the feeling of tribulation, where one is restrained and tormented with no apparent means of escape. This is a time in which one has no course of action in changing external conditions. Thus, one has only one recourse, self improvement and the tempering of one's soul. For when the time comes that there is an avenue of escape, then one is strong enough and spiritually prepared to take the advantage of any crack that appears in the cage and break free from the prison that surrounds.

Description

This piece depicts archetypal imagery of flowers and plant life, symbolizing life and its ever-growing and ever-evolving nature. The bouquet that is depicted contorts itself and moves in a way to re-shape itself and cope with the existence in the void and the forces put upon it by the music, which strives to crush the life out of the bouquet. There are forces in our lives that try to crush us and drain us of our personal energy. These forces make us warp ourselves, contort ourselves, and mutate ourselves into different forms in our effort to escape.

Description

This piece is based upon the phenomenon of EVPs (electronic voice phenomena), in which one can receive communication from non-physical entities through white noise in television or white noise that is the static in radio. This piece was composed by continually flipping through the bands of shortwave and AM radio. As a result, various fragments come alive within the ocean of static noise. The video was then created afterward, trying to give a visual impression of the possible EVPs coming through the radio.

Description

Unseen beings interact with our world. Some of them create and some destroy. They bring messages from the beyond. Fairies, angels, and generally inorganic life lies behind the scene in our reality. The video uses Processing to generate fields of random distribution of small, graphic elements. Vegas was used to filter this growing imagery and zoom in on different parts of the creation. The music was composed of short samples of metallic ringing sounds produced by tapping on metal speaker stands. These sounds were warped and transformed in Spear, the spectral analysis software. They were then mixed and processed in Cakewalk.

The basic candlelight meditation is one that every practitioner of meditation should try at some point. The beauty of it is that it is so simple. Simplicity is akin to quietness, which is one of the hallmarks of meditation. Quietness on the inside of one’s mind is essential. To effectively use this meditation it is recommended that one uses headphones so that outside sounds that can be disturbing are not heard. The sound in this meditation is that of the nature noises at night here at Digging Cat Homestead. The visual of the single candle is good for those who wish to have a visual experience to focus on. The flickering of the flame is a great way to see slight change over time to keep the eyes busy and still allow for one to achieve quietness in the mind. The soft light from the candlelight can also provide a soft glow in a dark room that does not need to be stared at. It is one of the simplest and most effective meditations one can try.

If you find that you have trouble quieting the internal verbal dialogue, keep in mind that trying to order it to stop does not work. One needs to let it run a bit, then gently stop it. Let it start again, and then gently stop it. As this continues, you will find that it will eventually come back weaker and weaker and eventually stop. Practicing full breathing is also recommended. Slowly take in air through the nose slowly. Fill up the bottom of your lungs, feeling it press down gently in your abdomen. Then let the lungs fill up from bottom to top as you feel gentle pressure on your sides and ultimately higher and higher in your abdomen. After you fill up, without pushing it, let the air slowly come out through your mouth. It can help to imagine that you are breathing in clean air full of light and exhaling the stress from your body. Hopefully this will be one of your staple meditations in the future.

Lawrence W. Moore, the author of The Wayfarer Project and artist going under the name “Wayfarer,” has recently moved with his wife, Liza Seigido of the Psyche Electro-Acoustic Opera Company from Miami, FL to rural North Florida. These two composers, multimedia artists, and professors are now adding homesteading to their repertoire. Discovering a new-found freedom in North Florida on their 5 acre plot of land has been truly inspiring. The two are engaging in the growing of their own food while Liza has begun making her own vinegar, wine, ferments, and perfumes. Moore works his vegetable garden daily and the two tend to their small fruit orchard as well. The homesteading lifestyle has been rewarding and a refreshing change for Moore and Seigido.

With this new lifestyle of homesteading, at the affectionately named Digging Cat Homestead, Moore has decided to breathe some new life into The Wayfarer Project. As more continues as a composer and multimedia artist, his music and music videos will still be a mainstay of his creative activities. Moore still teaches in higher education and will continue to make tutorial videos about various audio technology and music -making subjects. Of course, he still enjoys creative gaming and will continue to do that as well. What will be knew will be content about the work that he puts in at Digging Cat Homestead in living the rural life growing food and getting closer in touch with nature.

Description

This piece from the Spectral Dream series is a sequence of the first eight hexagrams from the I Ching, and outline their meaning in both musical and visual form. These different hexagrams are used as the graphic elements that make up different portions of the overall visual piece at their appropriate moments in time for their stages in order. The colors interpret their meaning. The various textures of noise are also constructed from the hexagram shape as various frequency ranges are passed through filtering, creating an aural layer of their hexagram shape. The pan flute performance is an interpretation of the struggle for one to begin and reach a point of establishment, facing the different challenges of spirit that come along the way, as indicated by the sequence of the first eight hexagrams of the I Ching, which tell this story of establishment. The background music is filtered noise that has noise filtering positions that are in hexagram shapes from selected I Ching topics. Colors are selected from a card series based on the I Ching that maximize the use of color in the meaning of that hexagram. The I Ching was not used as a random nor synchronistic oracle in the piece, rather selected hexagrams and their means were used as a foundation for the sound and the visual display. If one looks closely, the elements making up the material in the video are all hexagrams.

Description

Movement II – This is a metaphysical exploration of the phenomenon of synchronicity. There are seeming coincidences in our lives that come from a patterns int he universe that stem from our own conscious creation. These patterns are complex, just like anything that is physically organic. The non-physical organic aspect to the universe is where the mystery lies, but it is a living entity in and of itself. This combined entity of the universe, however, includes us, and as individuals, we affect the growth of the universe and the growth of our lives over time.
