I have almost finished a project which I have been working on for the last few months so i thought it was about time I posted it up here. The website is written for Peter Cusack of CRiSAP (Creative Research in Sound Art & Performance). He approached me looking for an online database to show case sounds around major cities in the UK (which eventually turned into the world) and here is the result: The Sound Database
There are a few bugs and usability features that I am working on but the base of the site pretty much finished.
The site uses a number of different languages and API to achieve the end result.
- Regular Expression
This is the first time i have coded something this complicated and i am fairly pleased with the results. Next i hope to add some extra functionality to the site.
- A randomizer which pans around the world randomly playing sounds as it goes.
- A walk though feature whereby the user can draw a line though the sounds. An icon will drive the path of the line playing sounds in close proximity. Sounds will pan to the left if they are on the left and right if they are on the right.
