- (add your self!)
sign up for your areas of interests and preferred duties, or add new ones below. Ge will participate/lurk in each of these.
SLOrk powered hemispherical speaker design + prototyping (target size: 4-6 people, though all are encouraged to contribute)
(prototyping, building, testing, everything)
- Steinunn (somehow this sign up for tasks passed me.. I see I am exceeding the target here, but would be interested in participating in speaker design and building.. maybe I can be an alternate here..)
- Reed would like to be involved... if possible.
- Turner (if "The solder master" is needed)
Linux compatibility research
(audio interfaces? pricing? drivers?)
- Nando? Carr?
SLOrk Station Design + Assembly + Purchasing (target size: 4-6)
(how everything fits together, what is needed: speaker + rack? + computer + pillow + mat + power + formation + lapinator + ???)
(once we decide on a prototype, how to transport everything as an ensemble? carts? what types of cases?)
Large-scale speakers fabrication + assembly (target size: a lot)
(once we decide on a prototype, it will be time to mass produce)
- Turner ("The solder master")
(someone might want to chronicle the adventures of this pre-laptop orchestra, audio, video, images, text? Brett? others?)
- Diana - will split with Steinunn.
- Steinunnn - signed up by Hayden. She likes to take pictures.
- Dennis Hsiao - I would like to take video.
- Brett - signed up by Ge. SLOrk journalist extraordinaire.
- Gina - video & camera are always available~~
- David - Many, many pictures will be taken... both uploaded to here as well as my blog 
(artwork? naming? software? projection? please feel free to add other task categories)
- Jason would be interested in adding 3d graphics/animation, possibly using Vue 6 Infinite: http://download.e-onsoftware.com/products/vue/vue_6_infinite/videos/Vue_6_Show_Reel_2007_640x360.mov
If there is a way for the music to drive the outcome of the animation (e.g. the rendering generates a world while the music controls the movement in that world), or, inversely, for the movement in the 3d world to generate the music, then Jason is also interested in that. In the former, a projector could play the visual behind the orchestra, and in the latter, the rendering would appear on each individual screen as well.
- Reed would be interested in brain-storming a logo once the name is settled. also want to
brain storm about the below brewing idea... - I have this projection idea, visuals that are interlaced with SLORK sound that is quite extensive. This ideas would add a sense of physicality to the sound performance. It would need some programming knowledge beyond my current abilities. This is something that could be used, but could be an interesting public program if done right.
