Hummingbird Evolution

My Hummingbird instrument, the one controlled by Twitter, has recently had a new breath of life blown into it with the use of the incredible DADA machines Automat.

This newest version can control physical beat machines via the tweets you send me!

I did a Live Stream test of it where people could tweet me and watch it live on Periscope:

Here’s a small compilation of some of the beats it’s produced:

It uses a python script on a raspberry pi to look at my twitter account, in then takes the user id of the last person to interact with me and puts it into PureData. From there i’ve got it doing a bunch of maths before throwing the right MIDI notes out to the DADA Machines.
