About Brad Baker (Loud Unwirings)

Hello! My name is Brad, and I'm an artist and software developer creating software for experimental art and music creation, and I'm also making experimental music, art, and poetry.  I also do research in Machine Learning, if you're interested. 

Loud Unwirings

My current project, Loud Unwirings focuses on the creation of Experimental Art, Music, and Poetry that is inspired and created by technological influences. The project aims to explore the relation of the self, society, and art to technology and science, as well as other various themes in the mileu. 

ELEMENTS EP


The ELEMENTS EP is a project focusing on the creation of poetry and visual/audio experimental art with themes focusing on members of periodic table of elements. Each release uses facts about the element to build thematic ideas first through the poem, and second through the conversion of the poem modality to visual and audio pieces.
I've released a few tracks from the EP already, and will be continuing to release tracks in the coming weeks. See my  bandcamp for more.

Poetic Fusion

The Poetic Fusion is an ongoing project using the ModalArt tool to convert public-domain and submitted poetry to works of experimental artwork through software. You can check out the project here on my homepage. Here's an example of one of the images created for this project, for Carl Sandburg's poem "Buffalo Dusk":



Software for Experimental Art

I currently am releasing the tools I use to make the art and music on  github.

ModalArt

This package strives to foster the creation of art by conversion of data modalities, facilitating new perspectives on the art-creation process and the art-encounter via technology.

Current functionality targets conversion between RGB images, audio, and text; however, conversion between other kinds of data and art modalities will be explored in the future.

The released tool currently supports conversion of image data into an audio file via spectrogram analysis or edge-detection, as well as text to image conversion via keyword and image searching.

Below is an example of the TextKeywordImage tool, which converts text files into visual art. The poem used to generate the image is "Ten Maps of Sardonic Wit" by Christian Bok.



Past Projects

There are a few other released projects which I've participated in that have public presences on the internet.

MyIrrlicht


MyIrrlicht was a personal poetry blog created for quick drafting of poems of various themes, most active between the years of 2012 and 2015. The blog is still accessible, but is no longer being updated.

Obvious Objects


Dream-Pop created by guitar and loop pedal. Performed some small shows in the Sarasota, Florida area, especially around the New College of Florida. The recorded live tracks have been removed, and are available for patreon donors in tier 0x101

The Cop Shop


Small Folk-Punk project from circa 2014.
Goals
0 of 100 patrons
This goal is focused on the upcoming release of the ELEMENT EP. The EP is currently going to be capped at 18 tracks, one for each of the first 18 elements in the periodic table (ending with Argon). If I reach 100 patrons, I'll increase this to 86 elements (ending with Radon).
