Video Recording of Presentation from Event #89: Tim Thompson on KeyKit – A Scripting Language and GUI Interface for MIDI

Video Replay

If you missed the Tim Thompson’s presentation on KeyKit on June 3rd, you are in luck. Tim asked that I record the presentation which I’ve placed on YouTube.

Here is the the 25 minute video.

Learn more about Tim at https://TimThompson.com and get slides for this and other talks at https://TimThompson.com/talks.

Talk Description

When MIDI was introduced in the mid 1980’s, I immediately knew I would be using it extensively for algorithmic and realtime experimentation.  So, I started developing a programming language and environment to make interactive development of MIDI things convenient and fun.  Originally named Keynote and now named KeyKit, the system evolved over a decade and was essentially complete (as a platform) by 1994.  Since then, I have actively used it for algorithmic and realtime MIDI experimentation for personal enjoyment, occasional performances, and Burning Man installations.  This talk will be a nerdy feature tour and demo of KeyKit, whose source code can be found at https://github.com/nosuchtim/keykit.

Tim Thompson Bio

Tim Thompson is a software engineer, musician, and interactive installation artist. His wide-ranging artistic work includes a programming language for MIDI, interactive installations at Burning Man and other festivals, musical performances with Playstation dance pads and QWERTY keyboards, and realtime video looping and processing with a handheld security camera.  Recently, Tim has focused on the expressive potential of three-dimensional input in visual music instruments, using devices such as the Microsoft Kinect (in the original Space Palette) and the Sensel Morph (in the newer Space Palette Pro). His website is https://timthompson.com.
