Created as a collaboration between Jono Brandel (aka jonobr1) and Lullatone, Patatap is a portable animation and sound kit that allows you to play with versatile melodies charged with colourful geometric graphics.
Patatap is a progression from Neuronal Synchrony and built using a library Jono developed called Two.js. The library offers a simple drawing API to render content in various contexts: SVG, Canvas, and WebGL. Patatap also harnesses technology that is still relatively nascent on the web, Web Audio API. Some of the benefits of these standardised services is that they can be compiled and deployed to other environments.
It should be noted that Jono did try to build the project for Android as well, but at the time of writing there is a bug and the Web Audio API is not supported in the WebView of Android. Effectively making Patatap just a visualizer. In addition to this there are many limitations on resources because we are such a small team, effectively one developer.
The film, embedded below was filmed at the new location of Gray Area Foundation, an Arts + Technology organisation located in San Francisco. Welcome Stranger did the styling, showcasing their Spring / Summer 2014 line and the film was produced by Crooked Letter Films.
