Who Enzo Varriale aka Lanvideosource
When Fri, Sep 19th 2014 - 11:00 until Sun, Sep 21st 2014 - 20:00

Brainwaves and art in VVVV
3-days workshop in Moscow Russia about EEG and art
Workshop led by Enzo Varriale (aka Lanvideosource)


A hands-on workshop about neuro-technology and art, with a focus on Emotiv software and hardware. The workshop will start with an introduction on EEG signal and how it can be manipulated to perform different kinds of data visualizations and sonifications by using the famous multipurpose toolkit VVVV. During the workshop different techniques and protocols will be introduced to design real-time EEG-based interfaces for Art or neuro-feedback applications.


During the first day of workshop, Emotiv hardware and software will be explained, demonstrating how to interface it with VVVV environment. This workshop edition will also cover the techniques and tools that will enable participants with a higher level of skills to capture and process the raw EEG signal, coming directly from the headset, in VVVV. Two methods will be explained to capture raw EEG signal, one for non-research versions of Emotiv EPOC and one (more reliable) for EPOC Research edition owners.

During the second part of the workshop, participants (individuals or in group) will try to design their own audiovisual patches to interface their brain with their Art...

The last day of workshop will be dedicated to a showcase of the works developed by participants.

The workshop was initially produced in collaboration with iMAL, as a part of the “Tangible Feelings” symposium. (http://www.imal.org/en/activity/tangible-feelings).
Thanks to Emotiv® (http://www.emotiv.com/)
Thanks to Q&U Lab, Berlin for Neurotransmitter software ( https://dev.qu.tu-berlin.de/ )

Useful links:

www.imal.org , www.emotiv.com , www.lanvideosource.net , www.vvvv.org , http://tangible-feelings.wikispaces.com/ , https://dev.qu.tu-berlin.de/

Tech required:

Good or medium knowledge of VVVV is required. Each participant must be equipped with a PC (or a MAC with bootcamp), Windows 7 and VVVV (version b32.1) with the latest add-on pack installed ( downloads ). Patches are tested on 32 bit version of VVVV on a windows 7 (32 bit) machine. Patches will likely work on different hardware configurations and other version of VVVV, though this is not guaranteed. Participants that own a Emotiv EPOC headset are invited to bring their own!

Workshop materials provided by the organization:

Participants will be provided with the necessary software to interface with the Emotiv EPOC hardware from VVVV. Participants will also be given a number of audio and video patches as practical examples from which to develop their own art interfaces controlled by brainwaves.

Workshop language: English (with the support of a Russian-speaker)

Topics covered:

  • introduction to EEG signal and brief history of brainwaves-based art
  • sampling and digitalization of EEG signals
  • real-time data protocols (focus on OSC protocol)
  • design interfaces for EEG-based media art projects
  • introduction to Emotiv software and hardware
  • Emotiv SDK and OSC protocol
  • interfacing with VVVV
  • Raw signal capturing/processing
  • Build your own neuro-based audiovisual tools with Emotiv!

Workshop is free of charge by you need to fill apply form before 14 of september

Workshop presented by Polytechnical Museum and MIGZ as a part of «Polytech.Science.Art» program.

Amir Bastan (IR) , Georg Scherlin (DE)

Artists Amir Bastan (IR) and Georg Scherlin (DE) have been selected for the Tehran/ Frankfurt Artist Exchange Program.

The program is co-organized by NODE - Forum for Digital Arts , TADAEX Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition and funded by the Goethe-Institut

The TADAEX/NODE Residency Program enables an exchange between the prosperous media arts scenes in Iran and Germany. It connects the communities that have emerged around each festiva and enables collaboratives works between the cultures.

We are curios about their joint project.

say helo to the bugfix-only release:


Some of you have pointed out that a little bogger slipped through testing and made it into beta33. We're sorry for that and while at it we also fixed another. Probably noone has even noticed that SharedMemory (EX9.Texture) was still broken since our switch to /dx9ex (with beta32) and still we fixed that one. And also Kalle (VVVV) should is back in the game.

Read the rest of the news for the 33-series in the vvvv45beta33 announcement and have a good patch (now really).

The bugfix-only release beta33.1 comes with a single new feature in the addonpack:
As Robin Müller pointed out FileStream (EX9.Texture VLC) can easily be included with x64 builds, thanks for that.

26-27-28 SEPTEMBER - Venice

Toolkit Festival presents an educational program: 3 workshops will take place on the 26, 27 and 28 of september 2014. The workshops will focus on multimedia practise and new technologies used in contemporary art.
The 3-days courses will take place simoultaneously in Venice, they will last 3 days and they will allow to investigate both theoretical and practical paths.
They will be held by tutors with a strong experience in the respective fields of research: interactive and digital scenogaphy (Martin Romeo), multidisciplnary connections between art and science and augmented reality (Luca Pozzi), sound-design (Andrea Santini).

The three workshops focus on three different fields of research, but they have a common purpose, which is to get the participants to learn specific tools in order to be able to create a personal artistic project.
On the final day there will be a collective moment, opened to public, in which the concrete results of the courses will be shown, in order to open critical and dynamic discussion about digital and interactive art, and to stimolate the exchange of experience among the differents facets in the multimedia research.

here is to you the latest and greatest: vvvv_45beta33
in other words: bestest release evvvver.


some highlights from the changelog:

  • optimized patch redrawing (should also reduce occurances of infamous IOBox bug)
  • added a command to cleanup patches with corrupt links. see: corrupt-link-inside-reader-(string)
  • a patch with evaluate=0:
    • now now allows default patching/panning: gui-strange-behaviour
    • shows a "NO" cursor when hovering input pins indicating that you cannot change those

code editor

  • for each file only one editor will be open
  • completion window for HLSL will only popup when pressing Ctrl + Space. It will also only show predefined functions and parameters as no proper AST for HLSL available.

new nodes

  • MouseMatch (Mouse) node able to detect certain mouse events like up/down/wheel and click
  • SplitAt (T) node - splits a spread at given position into two subspreads

fixed nodes

  • AsRaw (EX9.Texture) now ~30 times faster
  • DynamicTexture (EX9.Texture Raw) now ~10 times faster

For the following two goodies please head over to the Addonpack release announcement:

  • the new (ultramodular) PolygonEditor by vvvv meisterschüler dominikKoller
  • the html-texture upgrade sponsored by meso

Also restless robotanton has been continuing work on the documentation bringing to you everything we know about Video (and specifically syncing them) in vvvv with a shiny new section in the girlpowers:


that is accompanied by a rework of the Video section of the documentation.

may i have your attention please.

two major things in the addonpack this time:

HTMLTexture update
Everybody say thanks to meso for sponsoring an upgrade of the HTMLTexture nodes to now make use of CEF3, see htmltexture-node-using-cef-3-now

vvvv meisterschüler dominikKoller gives to you: The PolygonEditor (2d) which following the tradition of vvvvs other editors (Point, Grid, Mesh) is patched from the ground up (including multiselection, snapping, keyboard-interaction, serialization,...). Only this time in a quite modular manner allowing you to easily adapt its functionality to your personal needs. Also with a beautiful seperation between model and view allowing you to easily adapt this to DX11. For a first usecase, see the revamped: badmapper.

Plus the usual smaller fixes, as you can see in the changelog linked below. thanks everyone for your contributions.

shuffle room

Shuffle Room is an interactive audiovisual installation designed to completely submerge the audience in a rich 360º navigable sonic environment.
The piece uses a quadrophonic audio engine and an edge-blending multichannel projection transforming the room into an immersive audiovisual experience where converged mashups of abstract geometric objects and micro sound textures are emitted at high intensity and frequency, while they are also constantly seamlessly coordinated in a coherent whole.
Centrally located, a monolith shaped physical object enables the audience to have complete control over their surrounding using said multi-touch interaction device. It invites participation of the audience, and once it receives feedback from an audience member, the whole space awakes with activity, provokes further experimentation by the observer. Their fingertips now become the environment, and the observer becomes a conductor of his own audio visual experience.
The exhibition explores the possibilities of a limited space and represents an ever-evolving state of shape and sound where new patterns are constantly emerged and rearranged. It creates dialogue between the audience and the environment exploring modes of interaction and responsiveness, input and output, human intuition and curiosity.
Inside the custom built touch reactive interface, a real-time simulation software is situated, making use of various technologies and protocols all routed up in VVVV in conjunction with custom programmed audio engine running in Usine.
Participating in this exhibition, the observer is highly empowered to become part of the exhibition, part of the world he is now in charge of manipulating. The sheer spontaneity of interacting and changing such a complete set of multimedia, fully covering the main senses, introduces a specific state of mind that is unique and leaves an imprint with lasting effects.
Shuffle Room is developed as a collaborative work between Saso Puckovski (MKD) and Rodrigo Guzman (MEX), to be premiered on 7th of September at the art centre MÜSZi in Budapest, Hungary.
