Audio Visual Algorithms

Paint to Programming, Fields Institute, Toronto, December 4th, 2018

This talk was part of Paint to Programming, a collaboration between Art the Science and ArtSci Salon. Here I participated in a panel on creating algorithms and how this applies to science art. During my talk I discussed how I stitched toegther circular waveforms according to their resonate frequencies and radius, and described the process behind building a geometric flower for a recent audio visual performance.

Creative coding for the web: A Cauldron of Canvas, SVG, webGL and webAudio

ygkdevs, Innovate Kingston, Kingston, April 18th, 2018

This is a talk I gave for ygkdevs where I cover the art of functionless programming — creative coding! I go over the main tools I use to make audio and visual experiments for the web: Throughout the talk I give examples of how I set up my code, and show examples of my work. (1 hour)

3D Modelling of highly Conductive Massive Sulphide Bodies

Canadian Exploration Geophysics Society, Toronto, September 15th, 2015

Society of Exploration Geophysics, Dallas, Texas, October 18th, 2015

This talk is a technical presentation covering a compute engine I worked on with Yves Lamontagne of Lamontagne Geophysics, Ltd. The software, called MGEM (multigrid EM), models highly conductive bodies in environments with variable conductivity. Written in Fortran, it solves large matrices of unknown electromagnetic responses with surprising speed and resolution. The talk was selected as an expanded abstract and presented at the SEG annual meeting in Dallas, Texas.
