We updated both the Arduino Sketch and the Max MSP patch so that if the wireless connection fails, or if the battery dies, the brightness messages being sent from Max MSP can be received by the ESP via serial. This was the last thing that needed updating so that the GLOBE can be used entirely wirelessly, or plugged in, without having to re-upload a new Arduino sketch. It can also be easily modified if we want the RGB messages to be sent from Max as well.
I'm trying to figure out what I want to do for the sounds in my next piece. I have a rough idea of how I would like the piece to be played. For some reason I'm more stuck than usual on what I'd like it to sound like. I've been learning about the [ml.markov object], maybe I'll find some use for it. In the past I would work from an abstract idea. Maybe I should think of something like that and go from there. I don't know, so many maybes.
