Short Third Person Biography
Chris Jeffs was born in the UK but has recently moved to Berlin. Originally a trombone player, he progressed to making and releasing electronic music, touring extensively since 1994 as a live artist and DJ, most prominently under the name Cylob. He turned to creating his own programs as a way of making his sound more distinctive. His granular synthesis and visual animation software "Particularity" won joint first prize in the LOMUS 2010 competition. Recent activity has focussed on freelance development: programming for interactive installations and performances, the release of several self-published iOS apps, and work on commercial music software. He has also given workshops in programming for the iPhone and using SuperCollider.

Hi, I hope you’ll be “impressed” with this latest portrait-making applet…
“SwipePortrait” is another Processing derived applet I’ve posted, along with the sourcecode. Click on the title to go there. This time the “scanning” happens in small chunks rather than across the whole screen. A couple more pics follow.
Hi, this blog isn’t just a self-promo effort, it’s also my scrapbook. There have been a million Kinect hacks already and they have already been infinitely reblogged! Still, here are two of my favourites. I like them so much because … Continue reading
The latest thing I’ve been investigating is Cinder, a framework based on C++. I’ve been using it for a week so far and it’s a bit harder than SuperCollider or Java, if conceptually quite similar. (Well, they are all object-oriented, … Continue reading
