[Peter Kirn] from Create Digital Music has an article up highlighting many of the great music and visual performance pieces planned for The Last HOPE on Friday night. If you are around New York and not accustomed to hacking conferences, this could be a great excuse to go check it out. Here are some of our favorite projects.
In the field of visuals, [Joshue Ott] and [Ezekiel Honig] are scheduled for an exhibition. [Ott] is best known for authoring superDraw, an amazing app used for generating visuals for music. The above video shows superDraw in action. [Honig] will provide his usual brand of warm and noisy ambient soundscapes.
Representing the 8-bit scene, [Paris] (video above) and [No Carrier] are also scheduled to attend.
[Michael Una] will also be on hand to showcase his live looping and robot assisted performances. The above video shows one of the robots he will be performing with. This robot was built around the Highly Liquid MIDI kit.

Excellent post. Too bad last hope is half a dozen states away. :(
Yep, as soon as I can figure out a way to do a cross-country bus tour (or maybe *custom van* tour), I’m making it happen. :)
I’m currently at hope and i have to mention this one amazing visualization technology where there is a bunch of vertical strings that are being projected on in a fashion where it creates a three dimensional display that works great for a 3D spectrum analyzer. I’m not sure who created it, but maybe someone else can provide that information
