smooth fluid

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-09-17T06:10:40+02:00

For this animation I used a fluid simulation without gravity and a spherical obstacle. Then I used a smooth modifier to get rid of all the wired artifacts of the fluid sim

metaball fluid

For this animation I used a paticleset using fluid particles and metaballs as particle objects

broken metaballs

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-09-15T06:01:38+02:00

For this animation I used the cell fracture addon on a mesh created from a bunch of metaballs.

To add a bit more drama, I created a soundtrack based on the "inception braam" sample I made using my volca bass

For this animation I played with an array modifier and a displacement modifier

Sax Loop

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-09-09T03:56:28+02:00

This is a recording of a bitwig/launchpad/volca jam session that evolved around a saxophone sample that comes with bitwig. I also intended to record a video of the session but unfortunately I forgot to check the batteries of my camera so I only recorded the first 2 seconds :-/

hexagonal patterns in processing

I created a new processing sketch that generates hexagonal patterns. Click on the sketch to start it or create a new one.

Electone B55

This week I´ve been busy playing with an Yamaha Electone B55 from 1978 :-)

This is a first short song I have recorded using bitwig. Except for the drums every sound is from the B55.

Recreating the Inception Braaam with a Volca Bass

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-18T06:35:08+02:00

I recreated the famous Inception Braaaam sound from the trailer using my volca bass and a KP Mini (for the reverb). The sound is known under a range of names like 'Inception Horns', 'Inception Braaam', 'That Trailer sound' and so on

here is an mp3 file of my creation and if you have no clue what I´m talking about watch this video on youtube that shows all the trailers featuring this particular sound. I think I will use it in one of my next blender animations - to make it sound more filmy :-)

sverchok experiment 5 - slices

Nikolaus Gradwohl2014-07-16T06:20:37+02:00

For this sverchok experiment I created a mesh from 3 Metaballs and sliced it using a sverchok script. Then I extruded the slices.
