[edit] DREAM

A voice, a tune, interviews, concert,field recordings, compositions... will be audible in the projectspace @ Pianofabriek, on the market days of St-Gillis and amplified when I am biking to Oslo, Bjorvika The audio material will be dealing with strange affairs between bread, migration, astronomy and gossip about old and forgotten communication gadets. In different languages, street level talk. Somethings are pre-recorded, others are recorded with a mobile unit and easily added to a random playlist online.

[edit] IDEA/SCENARIO

A mobile audio recording and streaming device. Extension of http://www.ooooo.be/djette .

A recording unit with microphone to record, re-play live in public space + a stream to a website live audio. Best run on a battery. When passing through open wifi networks, automatically upload new recorded files to the website. Add them to a playlist and make a shuffle programme.

[edit] technical rescources

In THF! in Calafou I made some documentation of the different commands read more ... http://pad.constantvzw.org/public_pad/rrrptotocol

HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE

recording:

  • use line-out mic: ZOOM Q3

device:

encoding:

  • compressing with sox: convert all audio formats to mp3 in a folder mp3/
for f in *.*; do sox "$f" -t mp3 -r 44100 -c 2 "mp3/${f%.*}.mp3"; done

streaming:

Explanation + code - PiEye http://variable.constantvzw.org/define/index.php/PiEye http://www.constantvzw.org:8000/variable.ogg


in /etc/rc.local we start this gstreamer pipeline, reconnecting ad infinitum when lost;

 sleep 30
 /home/pi/stream/stream_mp3_usbaudio.sh &


#STREAMING SCRIPT - RUNNING RASBERRY PI, Zoom H4 (or other usb microphone) Rasberian

while [ true ];
do
  sleep 1
  gst-launch-0.10 alsasrc device=plughw:1 ! audioresample ! audioconvert ! audio/x-raw-int,rate=22050,channel=1,depth=8 \
  ! audioresample ! audioconvert ! queue \

  ! shout2send ip=79.99.202.57 password=xxx mount=ruelle.live streamname="live radio" description="stream"  genre="radio" 
done

uploading:

  • connect to wifi /3G
  • Wifi dongle
 apt-get install firmware-realtek

/lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless

rename existing 8192cu.ko to 8192cu.bak
then softlink the driver we need (realtek driver package)

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     19 May  1 11:49 8192cu.ko -> rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko

then we can just load the driver
modprobe 8192cu

(added to /etc/modules )

removed the wired interface from wicd (wicd-curses > preferences > remove the name of wired interface...
/etc/network/interfaces : added a static default ip 172.43.43.43  on eth0:1


  • (TO DO) automatically upload - Rsync
  • stream record > liquidsoap
