  • -
  • Developed a generative XML Schema (known as NeXML) and EMF Java bindings for the NeXus scattering science data format, for presentation to the NeXus International Advisory Committee (NIAC) meeting organised by the ANSTO Bragg Institute in Sydney on 30 Oct 2008 as a technical report and narrated screencast movie presentation.
  • -
  • Adapted the Drancing gestural performance air instrument system to use PureData/GEM patch-based synthesis and Nintendo Wii remote controllers as wireless 3D accelerometers via Bluetooth for real-time generation of music and visuals from human movement and dance. Edited videos and educational online screenshots of the patch-based synthesis.
