miniMAD Review by Geek3D.com

The famous website Geek3D.com wrote a very interesting in-depth review of the miniMAD Device.

The MiniMAD is a nice use case of the RaSpberry Pi (I don’t know why but lot of people forget the S…). The MiniMAD costs around 160 Euros which is cheap if you compare this price to the one of a small PC or Mac system. The MiniMAD has been developed for a particular task: a very cheap video mapping device installed (and forgotten) somewhere, and that projects a video for a long time (days…). I bet you won’t let your $2000 MacBook Pro far from home during days like you can do with the MiniMAD.

1. Tell us about yourself

I’m an electronic musician, based in Paris. I started to play drums and piano in my childhood. But my main interest has always been music composition. Like many people, that’s how I was lead to using computers to make music. The simple recorder at a first time and then as a specific musical tool for sound design, composition and production (electronic music).

Then, I discovered MaxMSP and started experimenting transversal proposals because I love music, but also visual, design, architecture… In order to deepen my work, I attended the « Computer Music Designer Master 2 » in 2013 (University Jean Monnet, Saint-Etienne, FR). Then, I was computer music designer – trainee at Theatre de la Renaissance (Lyon, FR) and at IRCAM (Paris, FR), where I improved my work in synthesis, control and spatialization of the sound. I was selected in great workshops allows me to work with Robert Henke (2014) and Scanner (2015), allows me to experiment multichannel sound diffusion, generative music, audiovisual links…

In the same period, Stereolux helped me to create my first audiovisual project: oqpo_oooo. First presentation at Scopitone Festival 2014 (Nantes, FR). Then, I presented this works at international festivals including Elektra (Montreal/CA), Open Source Art Festival (Gdansk/PL), Lab30 (Augsburg/DE), BAM (Liege/BE), Digital Choc (Tokyo/JP)….

MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?
Adrien Boulanger & Michaël Ventura: When we saw Boris Edelstein, a founder of MadMapper, started working with LED light mapping, we decided to develop our project. We like an installation with new technologies in an old environment. The Zoo in Geneva, where a part of Mapping Festival happens, was a great place to test out our project and gave us a great inspiration!
