Fellow computer music enthusiasts,
Please pardon the x-posting:
On behalf of the Virginia Tech Linux Laptop Orchestra, I am pleased to
announce the first official public release of the L2Ork Tweeter.
*What is L2Ork Tweeter?*
L2Ork Tweeter is a free and open source program inspired by the
unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic that has required a vast majority of the
human population to practice prolonged social distancing. It is designed
to bring communities together by empowering users around the world to
engage in collaborative music making even over slow internet
connections. It also facilitates the exploration of audio synthesis and
the rich variety of sounds one can generate using the frequency
modulation algorithm. It supports up to ten concurrent performers and as
many additional guests or audience members as the server bandwidth
allows who can observe a performance live over the internet. Each user
is given an instrument with a tracker that can be populated by up to 64
loop-enabled keystrokes or notes. This intentional constraint requires
users to build complexity through interaction with other users. It is in
part inspired by the popular social media platform Twitter that imposes
a similar design constraint of allowing only up to 280 characters per
Tweet. As a result, and as evidenced by its name, L2Ork Tweeter can be
seen as a musical counterpart to Twitter.
