I've been working hard this semester on a little project I call the Frotzophone. It's a musical instrument that you "play" by playing Infocom-style interactive fiction. I'll be performing with it as part of the New Instruments for Musical Expression class show at Exit Art on Thursday, December 13th.
There are a bunch of very cool projects that will be displayed and performed at this show: a musical cow's udder, a musical abacus, a weirdo mutating analog synth, a loom(!), and more. So even if seeing yours truly perform the Z-Machine's object tree doesn't seem like too much fun, something there is bound to appeal to you. It would be great to see some of my NYC area friends there!
If you can't make the NIME show, don't fret: a kiosk version of the Frotzophone will be available for the public to play around with at the ITP Winter Show on December 16th and 17th. Actually, you should come to the Winter Show anyway, as it's bound to be awesome (like it is every semester).
Our game, The Invention of Murder, will also be a part of the Winter Show. We'll be running the game again on either Sunday or Monday of that week. Details and web page forthcoming.
