Femi is an architect and sound artist from New York with a heavy emphasis on experimental sound synthesis and live coding languages. Femi works with modular synthesizers, DIY electronics and various coding languages to discuss the organic within electronics and technology through sound art and composition. His work explores the intersections of sound and space though spatial audio and architectural design as an experimental practice. He’s most interested in generative systems, chance, ambiance and texture within sonic soundscapes. Femi’s architectural work explores minimalism and sustainability, with a focus on aperture, light and sound. Femi has been performing as a solo experimental electronic improvisation artist since 2018 as sadnoise. Musical and Festival performances include Ende Tymes (2022, New York), Electronoise (2022, New York), Creative Code Festival (2020, New York), Flash Crash (2021, 2022, New York), among others.

Select All Verical Rivers, SAVR

Select all vertical rivers is a DJ duo including me and Hank Hurst, who is also attending risd studying sculpture. We began our DJ journey using cdj 500s and hosting events in a basment on Hidden street. We hosted an event for my birthday at a venue in Providence called 1911 that gave us the opportunity to host a night there monthly, where we have been having Hidden DJ nights. Some artists that have played include Daedelus (LA), Ana Dimco (Boston), Glikerii (kazakhstan), and Jackson Delay (Providence).

Foafx - A command line tool for applying spatially positioned audio effects to first order ambisonic sound files

foafx is a command line tool for applying spatially positioned audio effects to first order ambisonic sound files. It is written with Elementary, a JavaScript framework for writing audio applications, and uses its offline-renderer package.

As its input, foafx expects a B-format, 4-channel first order ambisonic encoded file with ACN channel ordering. It supports file normalization either in SN3D or N3D formats.

In order to apply a chosen effect, foafx decodes the B-format file using a simple Sampling Ambisonic Decoder (SAD) into an octahedral arrangement with six vertices that represent virtual microphone positions. Then, the effect is applied with the specified parameters including its spatial position (azimuth and elevation). After effect processing, the six signals are encoded back to B-format, panned to the matching octahedral positions of the decoder, and rendered to an output file. The result is an ambisonic wet/dry effect mix with wet focussed in a specific area of the sound field.
